Rotary is dedicated to Disease Prevention and Treatment in December

Check out this powerful image of healthcare workers at a polio-vaccine transit post in Antock, Punjab, Pakistan, taken on August 5, 2019. Their mission? To ensure every child receives life-saving vaccinations, even if they were missed during routine immunization efforts.

Building upon Rotary's collaboration with the global health community and its GPEI partners, our dedicated members in Pakistan are forging strong connections with families, all in the name of healthcare. Their unwavering commitment to eradicating polio takes many forms, from sponsoring health camps to funding permanent immunization centers. They also work to rally religious leaders in support of vaccinations and train female health workers to make regular family visits.

What sets Rotary apart? Our members live within the communities they serve, fostering enduring relationships that allow our vital work to persist in the face of campaign challenges. Together, we're making a difference in the fight against disease.

Christmas Party Reminder

RCWW Members, prepare for an evening of festive fun and extraordinary talent! Join us on Thursday, December 14th, starting at 5:00 PM at the Henny home for the Rotary Club of Whidbey Westside Christmas Party and Talent Show. And yes, spouses and significant others are cordially invited to share in the merriment!

So dust off your top hat, shine up your tap shoes, break out your standup, or practice your polka (we know who you are!). Whatever your talent, we want to see you sparkle and shine at the Rotary Christmas Party and Talent Show! All skill levels are not just welcome but encouraged to participate.
