In 1985, Rotary International accepted the challenge to rid the world of polio. In 1994, Rotarians went door to door in Peru inoculating children.  In 1997, Rotarians went boat to boat to make Cambodia polio free.  Polio was eradicated in Europe in 1998.  Recently in India, 1.65 million children were inoculated in five days!  The remaining handful of cases are in Nigeria, Afghanistan, Pakistan.  So close!  Once the world is fully polio free, the resources currently used to inoculate all children will be available for other needy causes.  Until then, Rotarians worldwide and District 6250 are keeping the focus on this important goal.  District 6250 set a goal of raising $220,000.  Under  Randy Sproule's leadership the District has raised $775,000 to help continue the efforts to eradicate polio worldwide!  Our club is so proud of Randy's "service above self".

Madison South Rotarians Kiki Wessell, Judine Phillips, and Lyn Kenney (three on the right) joined with members of a South Carolina Rotary Club to bring nine bags of gently used clothing to Libre Infancio (pictured below) in Guatemala to benefit the children of The Dump.  A relatively small amount of Rotary donations can make a big difference: helping rebuild a school, funding a physical therapist for a handicapped school, providing clean water for a community of 13,000, vented household stoves to decrease lung disease, portable spirometers for the Lung League to name a few.

Five years since its debut, Rotary Club Central is getting a big upgrade
When we introduced Rotary Club Central in 2012, it revolutionized goal tracking and planning for clubs and districts — no more filling out paper club-planning forms or passing along boxes of historical club information every time a new leader took office. Rotary Club Central offered clubs and districts a quantifiable way to begin measuring local and global impact, specifically membership initiatives, service activities, and Rotary Foundation giving. But as with any technological advancement, in a few short years, Rotary Club Central began to show its age, and Rotarians took notice. They...
Rotary International Board adopts new zone structure
At its January 2017 meeting, the Rotary International Board of Directors adopted a new zone structure for Rotary clubs. Rotary bylaws require the Board to complete a comprehensive review of the 34 Rotary zones no less often than every eight years to ensure that each zone has an approximately equal number of Rotarians. The Board’s previous review of the zones occurred in 2008. The Board earlier approved the creation of three regional workgroups to develop rezoning proposals for Asia, Europe/Africa, and the Americas. These workgroups comprised one representative (either a current director,...

Convention: Southern hospitality
The Atlanta Host Organization Committee is offering some good old-fashioned Southern hospitality at the Rotary International Convention from 10 to 14 June. It has planned a wide range of activities featuring everything from good food and music to inspiring tours of local landmarks. If it’s your first convention, these events are chances to meet fellow Rotarians from around the world, and if you’re an experienced convention goer, you can catch up with old friends. Hall of Fame baseball player Hank Aaron will host Rotarians for a “Strike Out Polio” night at the new SunTrust Park, where you’ll...
Member spotlight: The power of the press
When Teguest Yilma helped found the Rotary Club of Addis Ababa Entoto in 2002, she thought polio had already been eradicated from most of the world. But while Ethiopia had been free of the disease, Yilma was shocked to learn that new cases had started cropping up in surrounding countries such as Somalia. “I was thinking, it’s not possible, we can’t be free if the countries around us are not free,” she says. Yilma, the managing editor of Capital, Ethiopia’s largest English weekly newspaper, has brought a journalist’s skills to the fight against polio. She became vice chair of the Ethiopia...
