This evening our club had the pleasure to hear the Immediate Past President of Rotary International, Barry Rassin, via Skype from his home in the Bahamas.He gave us an update on Polio elimination, including how close Africa is to being declared polio free, the persistent hot spots of Pakistan and Afghanistan, and Rotarys plan to stay focused on polio until one full year after there are no new cases (at which point a planning committee will commence to decide on our next focus). In answer to a question from the floor, Rotary and their partners have collectively spent about 1.7 billion on polio elimination since 1985, with partners including the Gates Foundation committed to staying with it until the end.

He also spoke about the focus of the millennial generation on climate change, how we can involve them in Rotary, as well as how to engage Interact members in planning projects with us instead of simply being volunteers. Club members were pleased to have had the opportunity to hear this inspirational message from someone so involved in the Rotary hierarchy, and discussion afterward gave us some thoughts on how to use what we heard. 

Thank you Past President Rassin !
