Feed knowledge, and it WILL grow !!!

Feeding knowledge...what does that mean? To me it is a curiosity burning inside us...whatever the subject may be. For us as Rotarians, it means learning WHAT Rotary is all about. Our local 54 clubs are all different, but we are all linked together in the larger collective of Rotary International. Starting today, SEPT 30th, 2010 our District 5030 will once again forge ahead with knowledge & education for us as committed Rotarians.

As a person who is extreamly busy, I am making a commitment this year to do it! I have tried twice and failed to follow through...my shortcomings! The Rotary Academy is a fantastic way of getting GREAT information in a relatively short period of time...doing HOME STUDY...& working with a group of people to find and locate where the answers are. As a Club of ALL new people to Rotary, I hope you will consider this and join Narayan, Janet & myself to becoming well informed, Engaged Rotarians, willing to serve our kids, our community and our world. Thanks! Let me know...the Redmond Rousers are willing to help.

Get the facts, Jack!...do you know about POLIO?

This building, along with about 10 others, all over the world, decorated and ready to display the END POLIO NOW logo.... for all the world to see. The lit up buildings were the work of an artist to gain world wide support of the campaign.

The New York Times reported on POLIO stats from April 2010.  What do you know about POLIO? If you are a baby boomer, maybe a little. If you are a gen X or Y, probably nothing. This article tells the latest updates and why you should care.

Get ready to help the Redmond Rousers Rotary Club and its many volunteers, ERADICATE this diease from the world! WE are hosting a PAWS FOR POLIO MUTT SHOW....please come support our efforts to wipe out Polio!!!  You can help....you CAN do it... YOU should do it.  Shalom! Thank You. Nameste'. Gracias!
