CELEBRATE WORLD POLIO DAY – OCTOBER 24

 
pintsforpolio.image.png
 

WHEN: TUESDAY OCTOBER 24

WHERE: BASIC CITY BEER CO                                           1010 E MAIN ST WAYNESBORO

5:30 – 7:30 PM

$10/ PERSON FOR 1 CRAFT BREW AND SUPPORT FOR A GREAT CAUSE!

(Additional beer and food available for purchase)

Since 1985, Rotarians worldwide have been united in the effort to eradicate Polio, and, even though it’s no longer present in the USA, it still exists in a few countries around the world. It’s Rotary’s signature “cause” and we need your help to finish the fight.  Rotary has created a Pints for Polio event to raise funds for Rotary’s End Polio Now campaign.

This campaign builds on the Rotary Foundation commitment to another three years in the End Polio Now: Countdown to History Campaign.  And more importantly, the Gates Foundation will triple donations to the Polio campaign. 

So each dollar will get matched 2:1 thanks to the generous support of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.  That’s right: Every $100 will turn into $300 of support for global eradication of polio!

This social fellowship and fund-raising event is an Area-wide Rotary Club sponsorship – 5 clubs getting together for fun and a great cause.  So let’s show our Club’s support!    Attendance at this event will count as a make-up, so please join us for a great evening of fellowship and an opportunity to help end polio!

Congratulations Nancy Whitlock!

On September 28, 2017, District 7570 Paul Harris Society Coordinator, Lee Beam presented Nancy Whitlock with her certificate of membership to the Paul Harris Society. We are so proud of Nancy and recognize her as a role model for our membership. In addition to her generous financial commitment, Nancy has dedicated her service to Rotary. She is Past President (2010-2011), Past Assistant Governor District 7570, and Rotary Leadership Institute Graduate, a Major Donor to the Paul Harris Society and has had Perfect Attendance since 2006.

The Paul Harris Society recognizes Rotary members and friends of The Rotary Foundation who elect to contribute $1,000 or more each year to the Annual Fund, PolioPlus Fund, or approved global grants.

The purpose of the Paul Harris Society is to honor and thank individuals for their generous, ongoing support of The Rotary Foundation.

Rotary districts often honor new members of the Paul Harris Society by presenting them with a certificate and chevron at a district or club event.

We're not in Kansas anymore.... our 2017 Rotary District 7570 Conference

This year's conference had a different vibe! The nuts and bolts information about our District was simplified and reduced and the focus was on inspiring content and speakers. Locations of the awards meals and the plenary sessions were swapped, and as you can see from the image above, the morning sessions were filled with light, and this seemed to create more energy in the room and the audience. 

Highlights of the conference include: Karaoke featuring Rotarians, TED Talk star Dan Pallotta on The Power of Purpose, Mark Fernandes. Chief Executive Officer of Capitalism 2.0 and hearing the 2016 4-Way Test Speech winner. 

It was evident that our district has no shortage of love for our District Governor, Chris Runion. Chris had the courage to take some risks changing up longstanding conference traditions and his team created a truly memorable experience.
