Hundreds of children to be saved from a crippled life, even death, through Rotary fundraiser 
On World Polio Day, October 24th, the proceeds from Rotary Club of Ladner's Pumpkins for Polio sales event will spare 857 children in the world under the age of 5 years from a lifetime of being crippled, sometimes severely, and even death, because of polio. Those children can survive and grow up to be healthy, fully active adults because every US$3 raised will protect a child from polio with oral vaccines, given the event's having raised US$860, which will be matched twice by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, for a total of US$2,580.

Gold Distinction for Ladner Rotary in achieving international Rotary Citation
Rotary Club of Ladner has received the international Rotary Citation for our performance in 2019-20, at the Gold level of Distinction, the second highest after Platinum. 
 
The Rotary Citation is the most significant award a Rotary club can achieve. It is awarded for achieving goals such as increasing club membership, developing sustainable service projects, giving to The Rotary Foundation, and building awareness of Rotary in the community.
 
That achievement came during a year that was challenging for many Rotarians around the world. Our club demonstrated a commitment to achieve its goals, which has ultimately helped strengthen Rotary and shape our future.
 
Congratulations to Ladner Rotarians as People of Action, for continued service above self to our community and our world.
