WHAT CAN THE ROTARY CLUB OF NEW BERLIN DO FOR YOU?

 

 
  • The WHO African region has been officially certified free of wild poliovirus. This certification comes four years after Nigeria – the last polio-endemic country in Africa – recorded its final case of wild polio.
 
  • This milestone is an incredible public health achievement for Rotary members, the African region, millions of health workers, and our Global Polio Eradication Initiative (GPEI) partners, and a huge step forward on the road to global polio eradication.
 
  • Rotary members have played an invaluable role in the effort to rid the African region of wild polio. We should be proud of all the hard work that we’ve done to eliminate the wild poliovirus in nearly every country in the world.
     
  • By raising funds for polio eradication, advocating with world governments and national and local leaders, holding events and fundraisers for World Polio Day, and raising awareness, Rotarians in the African region and around the world have made an indelible impact in the fight to eradicate polio.
    • There are Rotary clubs in all 47 countries in the African region, and the region is home to almost 32,000 Rotary members in nearly 1400 Rotary clubs.
       
    • Rotary and its members have contributed nearly US$890 million to eliminate polio in the African region.
 
  • The success of African countries, Rotary members, and partners in eliminating the wild poliovirus throughout the region is proof that polio eradication is possible.
 
  • Our victory over wild poliovirus in the African region represents incredible progress, but as long as polio exists anywhere, it remains a threat everywhere.
 
  • To overcome the remaining hurdles to eradication, it is critical that Rotary members remain committed to polio eradication and continue raising $50 million a year so we can keep children protected in Africa and eliminate the wild poliovirus in Afghanistan and Pakistan.
  • With continued support from Rotary, donors, country governments and GPEI partners we are confident that we can beat polio for good.

Passing the gavel to a new president
 
The rains let up just in time for us to celebrate an annual tradition in Rotary, the Changing of the Guard. Tuesday, June 22 was an otherwise nice day, so we met at ProHealth Care Park in New Berlin.
 
Outgoing president Art Angove officially stepped aside as our new president, David Grzesk, assumed the role.
 
In his remarks, Angove touched on the history of Rotary. The organization started as a networking group 115 years ago in Chicago. Today, Rotary is comprised of 1.2 million people in 35,000 clubs spread around the globe. Rotary is involved in numerous projects large and small. The most noteworthy is the push to eradicate polio -- an achievement which is in sight.
 
The Rotary Club of New Berlin has been very active since its inception in 1970. You can learn more about those achievements here.
 
David Grzesk said he is "honored" to serve the club in the coming year. "I enjoy being among a group of like-minded people committed to giving back to the world," he said. We wish David the very best for the coming Rotary year.
 
Art Angove accepts a plaque recognizing his service as club president. Making the presentation is Rotarian Dianne Moore.
 
 
We also took a moment to recognize Rotarian Pat McLaughlin. Pat served as club president immediately prior to Art. Thank you, Pat!
 
Pat and Art each served two terms, helping to ensure a smooth flow for the club as it faced challenging times.
 
As a nice cap to our meeting, the sun popped out. Rotarians and family members gathered for a group photo.
