Giving Back to our Community

December 12th, 2013

At this time of year, it is good to pause and reflect on our blessings. Often our thoughts turn to how we can help others who are in need within our own community.

Rotary International has long been known for its battle to eradicate Polio worldwide. Rotary, along with its partners, has reduced polio cases by 99 percent worldwide since 1979 when they launched their first project to vaccinate children in the Philippines.
