Congratulations to Bruce Swanwick 2015-16 La Crosse Downtown Rotarian of the Year. Bruce was recognized at our meeting last week.  He will also be recognized at our Avenues of Service Dinner on August 16th.
 
Bruce was nominated by a number of Rotarians and they stated....Bruce is currently our Club Secretary and Chair of our Social Committee.  Every week Bruce is at our meetings at 10:15 setting up and helps to clean up after the meeting.  He is "johnny on the spot" always helping everyone.  Bruce also transports some of our senior members to the meetings. He is always upbeat and greets everyone with a smile and hand shake and lives the Four Way Test.  This year he was involved in raising funds for Coulee Region RSVP, Smarter than a Fifth Grader.  He was involved in our Fruit Basket Fundraiser by visiting every Rotary Club in the area twice to promote the sale of our baskets.   He is actively involved in our Club Social activities and is present at every event...he helped organize the bus to Caledonia for the Avenues of Service Dinner.  He is a good cheerleader for our club and these social events,   Bruce is the perfect selection for our 2015-16 Rotarian of the Year!!!
 
 
 
 
 

 
Arch Klumph’s idea for an endowment fund dedicated to “doing good in the world” planted the seed for The Rotary Foundation in 1917. Thanks to his vision and staunch advocacy, and the extraordinary generosity of Rotary meRotary International Convention 2017 in Atlanta, Georgia's Profile Photombers worldwide, that fund has become one of the world’s leading humanitarian foundations.

Learn about the people and events that have made our Foundation a powerful force for good. That one idea and an initial contribution of $26.50 set in motion a powerful force for good that has transformed millions of lives around the globe. View the timeline of the history of the development of what is now the Rotary Foundation.

Nigeria reclassified as polio endemic
Nigeria reported three cases of wild poliovirus in the northeastern state of Borno in August of this year. Following the World Health Organization's confirmation of these cases, the country returned to the list of polio-endemic countries. The other polio-endemic countries are Afghanistan and Pakistan. These are the first cases detected in the country since July 2014, and while this news is disappointing for all Rotary members, we are confident that Nigeria can defeat polio. Rotary provided $500,000 to assist immediately with the outbreak response, and an emergency response plan has been put...

Practicing peace

Each year, the program prepares up to 100 fellows to work for peace through a two-year master's degree program or a three-month professional certificate program at university partners worldwide. Today, nearly 1,000 peace centers alumni are applying their skills — negotiating peace in conflict...
