Rotary has been at the forefront of polio eradication since 1985, helping to immunize nearly 3 billion children and reduce polio cases by 99.9 percent. Your support has contributed to our progress, and as of August 2020, the African region has been certified to be free of wild poliovirus! This is a historic and vital step toward the global eradication of polio. But polio remains a paralyzing threat to children in Afghanistan, Pakistan, and other high-risk countries, and our work fighting this devastating disease won’t stop until it is gone for good.

A gift of just $15 protects five children from polio for life.

Rotarians, please post things to these sites, and when doing so to "hash tag" #RACINEROTARY.  This will connect all of our posts to each other.





 If you have speaker duty please let me know two weeks in advance who your speaker is or what your program is so I can get the info to the newsletter. If you have any difficulty finding a speaker please attempt to reach out to other club members for assistance and let Chris Terry or Mark Patzke know what the program will be.

Hello Fellow Rotarians
Where did the month of October go. I know, Quarantine for me.
What started out as a simple fall allergy/cold turned a bit ugly. Once I knew I was sick I stayed clear and let my more than capable President elect, Chris terry run the show.
I’ve heard nothing but great things about his ability to run the meeting. I might have even heard some calls for him to start early and have me step aside……just rumors.
All kidding aside, when things were not going so good for me, I was met with the realization that my fellow Rotarians cared. Honest, concern for my wellbeing.
The members who called, texted or emailed, was almost overwhelming. A couple of members need special mention as they shared their talents as well. Jody Muniz and Jim Lynott both made sure I was on a path to recovery.
I want to give a heartfelt thanks to them as well as everyone who reached out. It does mean a lot.
Were in between things going on. We will have bell ringing (tentatively) November 28. Details are still forthcoming.
Food delivery is up in the air too with the CCP virus. It may turnout to be a monetary donation instead.
Be on the lookout again for the secret word. $20 goes to the first person who finds, then sends me the word at
Must be present at the next meeting to win. See you then!!

                       During the Presidential election of 1864. President Lincoln (Republican) was running for a second term. His opponent was former U.S. Army commander General George McClellan(Democrat). General McClellan had been in command of the army until Lincoln sacked him and replaced him with General  Ulysses Grant.  As the civil war was at it's height and thousands of American men were away from home in military service it was decided to let soldiers mail their votes back home to their local counties. President Lincoln proudly stated that he would "rather lose the election with the soldier vote than win the election without it". Lincoln carried the soldier vote by 80% and won a second term in office. The secret word for the week is soldier**
