Sometimes we forget that, while we seldom hear later how giving dictionaries to 3rd graders or helping the local food bank's operations can change people's lives, there are interesting stories about exactly how we change lives.. Martha Sidlo is a lawyer for a downtown Seattle firm, and generously shares with many people she meets in Rotary just how much she benefitted from her two chance encounters with Rotary programs earlier in her life. Join us on Tuesday, May 1 to hear her story.
News Update: At the Rotary District 5030 Conference in Coeur d Alene it was announced that we are now cautiously optimistic that polio will be eradicated world-wide in the 12-24 month time window. This is after over 25 years of effort by Rotary, and will be only the second disease in history to be wiped-out once-and-for-all. Smallpox was eradicated in 1977. Rotary's fundraising for polio immunizations in 2011-12 is over $200 million, with matching dollars from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, U.S. Centers for Disease Control, and other organizations.
