(Rotary International is the premier and first membership service organization in the world with some 1.2 million Rotarians in over 200 countries and geographic areas. There are over 35,000 Rotary Clubs. Rotary seeks to provide humanitarian service, encourage high ethical standards, and build good will and peace in the world. Rotary’s signature corporate initiative since 1985 has been serving as the lead not-for-profit organization dedicated to eliminate polio from the face of the earth and it will not rest until the job is complete. In 1985 there were 350,000 cases of polio and not through July of 2016 there have been only 19 cases reported. We are very close to eliminating this dread disease and give the children of the world a wonderful gift. Rotary improves our communities and the world changing lives one at a time.)
