Rotary Stories
Roof panel frame being raised by volunteers

For the last 2 years, RB Sunrise Rotary Club has partnered with Project Mercy, a charity headquartered in Poway to fund and provide volunteers so that in one day, a new watertight secure home can be erected in one day.  In each case, the new house replaces a makeshift shelter that usually has no doors or windows and has only a tarp for a roof. 

Story reprinted from Rotary International

A new book in the field of public health highlights Rotary’s role in the global effort to wipe out polio, and places it in the context of humanity’s relentless struggle to contain the world’s epidemics.

In “The Health of Nations: The Campaign to End Polio and Eradicate Epidemic Diseases” (Oneworld Publications), British journalist and Sunday Times best-selling author Karen Bartlett surveys the global landscape of epidemics past, present, and future. Beginning with the 1980 eradication of smallpox, she guides us through more timely threats such as the Ebola and Zika viruses, and looks ahead to a future without malaria, measles, or polio.

“Who decided to rid the world of polio? Not politicians or global health organizations, as you might expect,” she writes, in one of several chapters devoted to polio. “The starting gun was fired by Rotary International, a network of businessmen more used to enjoying convivial dinners, raising money for local good causes, and organizing floats to carry Santa Claus around suburban neighborhoods at Christmas.”

Bill Gates, co-chair of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, will speak at this year’s Rotary International Convention June 10-14 in Atlanta, Georgia, USA. The convention is expected to attract 40,000 Rotary club members from over 160 countries, and inject an estimated $52.3 million into Atlanta’s economy.
Often described as a “mini-United Nations”, Rotary’s third convention in Atlanta will transform the Georgia World Congress Center into a cultural kaleidoscope as the organization’s global network of volunteers gather to exchange ideas on how to improve lives and bring positive, lasting change to communities around the world.

EVANSTON, Ill. (17 January 2017) — Rotary today announced $35 million in grants to support the global effort to end polio, bringing the humanitarian service organization’s contribution to $140 million since January 2016.
Nearly half of the funds Rotary announced today ($16.15 million) will support the emergency response campaigns in Nigeria and the Lake Chad Basin (Chad, northern Cameroon, southern Niger and Central African Republic). Four cases of polio were detected in Nigeria in 2016, which had previously not seen a case since July 2014.
With these cases, funding is needed to support rapid response plans in Nigeria and surrounding countries to stop the outbreak.
On Saturday afternoon, Oct 22, 2016,  RB Sunrise Rotary in partnership with The Urge Gastropub, held the club's only fundraising event for the year, Rancho BEERnardo.   For the first time in 3 years, this IPA Festival was held in Rancho Bernardo at Webb Park.  In addition to a great location, the weather was also great this year.  Even though the day was warm, there was plenty of shade available because of the trees in the park.  Early reports indicate that a record amount of money was raised this year.  Club members also received numerous positive comments about this year's event
Because of event promotion on banners on light poles around RB and an article in Westways magazine, attendees came not only from our local community, but from Los Angeles!  Rancho Bernardo Rotary Club would like to thank all of sponsors and volunteers whose joint efforts made this event such a great success.  All of the funds raised will be used to fund the many community projects and support multiple nonprofit groups in our community. 
Plans will be starting soon this event next year.  We look forward to even more community support next year as we  build for the future.
