District 5870 Rotarians,
Happy New Rotary Year!
Sharon and I are so excited to be your DG & spouse for the year as we start to embrace this year’s new RI theme – Rotary Serving Humanity & our districts theme of Serving Humanity in your Community.
It’s time to unfold new horizons and realize new dreams, to rediscover the strength within you, to rejoice in simple pleasures and gear up for some new challenges.
This is going to be a FUN year as we celebrate The Rotary Foundations Centennial Year – 100 years of giving back to the world’s needs.
Buckle up – it’s going to be a fabulous ride!

Dear fellow Rotarians,
I embarked on my road to Rotary thanks to George Campbell, a dear friend and mentor who taught me the importance of civic responsibility. My former boss saw a potential leader in me and I thank him for his guidance. After starting down that road, I met many other Rotarians walking the same path. They offered me their help, shared advice, and made sure I kept moving in the right direction.
I am the person I am today because of Rotary. To be a member of the Rotary family is to be a part of something much bigger than yourself. It means that you are a member of a diverse, worldwide team whose members together have provided extraordinary service to humanity.
As we celebrate Membership Month this August, I hope you reflect not only on your road to Rotary, but also how to help set others down that road. As club and district leaders, you set the example for your fellow Rotarians as active, engaged members of our organization. You not only play an important role in inspiring current members, but also in attracting new ones. There is a potential Rotarian in anyone who cares about their community and strives to make the world a better place. Finding a new member can be as simple as inviting someone you know to your next meeting or engaging Rotaractors and alumni. to continue, click here
Between 17 April and 1 May, the type 2 component of the oral polio vaccine (OPV) is being removed from use through a globally synchronized switch from the trivalent to bivalent oral polio vaccine. This is the first stage of Objective 2 of the Polio Eradication and Endgame Strategic Plan 2013-2018 to withdraw OPV in a phased manner starting with the type 2 component following the eradication of wild poliovirus type 2 in September 2015.
Thanks to the efforts of a wide range of stakeholders from Ministries of Health, health workers, volunteers, switch monitors, WHO, UNCEF and partners of the World Health Organization, confirmation has been received that 152 countries have completed the switch.
