  • Collaboration with Matamoros, Mexico Rotary Club 
    Our club has an on-going relationship with the Matamoros, Mexico Rotary Club. In the past, we have provided funds and support to their hearing aid project, which provided and fitted hearing aids at no charge to 450 people of all ages.  We also provided a refurbished ambulance to a Matamoros hospital and built an aquatic rehabilitation center at a Matamoros school.


     
  • Shelter Box USA
    ShelterBox is the international Rotary club-level project of first-responders to natural disasters.  Since its inception in 2000, ShelterBox has responded to earthquakes, floods, volcanoes, tsunamis, hurricanes, landslides, typhoons and conflict, delivering emergency humanitarian aid to families in need on every continent.  Our club does it’s part by hosting the annual international training weekend for ShelterBox, usually held in May.
     
  • Polio Eradication 
    As result of Rotary's efforts, more than 2.5 billion children have received the oral polio vaccine. Since Rotary launched its PolioPlus campaign in 1985, the number of polio cases worldwide has dropped 99 percent, and the virus remains endemic in only three countries -- Afghanistan, Nigeria, and Pakistan.  Our club supports international efforts to eradicate Polio through two yearly events.  Our “adult event” is “Pints for Polio” – fundraising parties in local brewing establishments.  We also build awareness within the community through the Purple Pinky Project, where local school children dip their finger in Purple ink if they donate to the cause.  AND…the Bill and Melinda Gates foundation matches our fundraising 2:1!
