Polio Fundraiser and Fun & Fellowship Event
Join us Saturday, June 25th at 2 p.m. at the McConnell Art Center in Worthington for a fundraiser to benefit End Polio Now.  “Dances of India” will showcase several styles of dance from classical to folk to Bollywood. The students of Nalanda School of Dance, under the direction of Past President CK Satyapria’s wife, Indira, are generously donating their time, hard work and graceful artistry to make this cultural experience possible for our club members and guests.   
Proceeds will benefit Rotary’s End Polio Now initiative.
Following the program, there will be a Fun & Fellowship dinner hosted (Dutch treat) at TADKA Restaurant, one of the most popular Indian restaurants in the city.  TADKA offers a variety of Indian, as well as Chinese and Thai cuisines, and we are looking forward to trying lots of new flavors and experiences with a little guidance from our Indian friends.  Even if you can’t make the dance event, please join us for fun and fellowship at the restaurant starting at 4:30 p.m.

Join Leaders -
     Exchange Ideas -
          Take Action

These six words are the simplest way to understand Rotarians and the clubs in which they belong.  The entire Rotary essence statement is "Rotary Joins Leaders from all continents, cultures and occupations to Exchange Ideas and Take Action for communities around the world."

Whichever way you remember it, please consider joining us at our next meeting.

Our own John O'Meara is back in Nepal on his quest to summit Mt. Everest.  He took a club flag with him so has an excused absence(s) for the next several months.  If you would like to follow John and his team's journey you can find it here; www.mountainguides.com 

"Down at Base Camp, our IMG climbers are resting and taking a few day hikes. Energy is high, and we are looking for a summit window. They have worked very hard to put themselves in position to summit, and we are all very hopeful that we will get our shot at the summit of Mount Everest in the coming days!"

With nearly 350 students, VIP's, Rotarians and friends on hand at COSI on May 2 we had a very successful Service Above Self Fair.
