Meeting of January 22nd


Letter to Members: 

Dear Rotarian,

2014 is starting across Rotary Zones 24-32 with a little fun - the first ever Zone 24-32 Avenues of Service - Zone Photo Contest.  Your club is part of this Rotary zone.

This is an opportunity for Rotarians to share photos about the service projects and fellowship events your club has held or will hold this Rotary year.

The prizes are simple, boasting rights as the best Rotary photographer, a certificate and the winning photos in each of the Avenues of Service posted on this website and hopefully district websites. Winners will be announced in mid- April.  So get out your SLR, point and shoot or phone camera and click away.

I need your help to share this email with your club members - particularly the members that like to take photos.  Please forward this message to all your club members.

The most important rule of the contest is “have fun”.

  • The photographer must be a member of a Rotary, Rotaract or Interact club in Zone 24 or Zone 32 (your club is in Zone 24-32).
  • Photos submitted must be in JPEG file format with a maximum size of 3 MB and be submitted on or before March 31 2014.
  • Each photographer may submit up to 3 photos that were taken between July 1 2013 and March 31 2014.
  • Each photo will be submit in one of the 5 Avenues of Service that the photo best illustrates.

Letter to Rotary Members:

 

It is with great sadness that I report that 3 Polio workers were killed in Karachi, Pakistan on January 21, 2014 which has resulted in halting the current immunization campaign.

Pakistan is the only endemic country that had an increase in Polio cases in 2013.  In 2012 they only had 58 cases.  In 2013 they had 91. 

Afghanistan dropped from 37 cases in 2012 to only 13 cases in 2013 and Nigeria also saw an improvement from 103 cases in 2012 to 53 cases in 2013. 

Non-endemic countries - Somalia, Syria, Kenya, Ethiopia, Cameroon all had a resurgence of Polio cases and are expanding immunization to try to stop the spread of this terrible disease.

STATS - as of January 15, 2014

(totals may change for 2013 as lab confirmations take time.)

If anyone is interested in more information on the WORLD'S GREATEST MEAL TO HELP END POLIO - Please email me - I have more information on it.

My club - Powell River - has registered for the event and we will be doing an Ethnic dinner on Feb. 26.
