Rotarians Are Thankful

Happy Thanksgiving to all! As many of us sit down to enjoy a turkey dinner with friends and family, we as Rotarians take a few moments to reflect on our accomplishments and explore the opportunities to make our world even better.

We are thankful for the opportunity to serve and represent our professions. We know of many causes, many opportunities to volunteer, and we know that our contributions, leveraged by Rotary have made a huge impact in our local & international communities. That truly is the secret to our success.

We as Rotarians are thankful that…..

The Eradication of Polio in the world is nearly completed. There are only two countries that have active cases of Polio, and it is Rotary who has helped and will continue the fight until we have complete the task; to rid the world of Polio!
