"No Meeting"
Enjoy the Federal Holiday 
Many countries in the New World and elsewhere officially celebrate as a holiday the anniversary of Christopher Columbus' arrival in the Americas, which happened on October 12, 1492. The landing is celebrated as Columbus Day in the United States, asDiscovery Day in the Bahamas, as Día de la Raza ("Day of the Race") in many countries in Latin America... These holidays have been celebrated unofficially since the late 18th century and officially in various areas since the early 20th century.

The much awaited and anticipated 2015 Dictionary Project is upon us. I am sure everyone is tingling with excitement, as always.

We have already started to deliver the dictionaries to the students!  Now is the time to get yours out to the schools.  If you didn't sign up but would like to ride along with someone, call Scott Brown.  
This year we are trying to get ALL schools delivered between October 5th and 16th. A two week window is an effort to not miss any students that switch schools.
Please let Tim Maghie know when you've delivered dictionaries this year, your efforts are much appreciated.
Looking forward to another successful year.

Earlier this week the Wall Street Journal reported that the World Health Organization announced that Nigeria has successfully stopped transmission of polio in the country.  The full article in below

Bringing education to rural Mexican area, one school at a time
When Mariana Day moved in 1989 to the small beach town of Chacala, in Nayarit, Mexico, she noticed that the surrounding rural areas struggled to maintain schools. And most children weren’t able to go beyond an eighth-grade education. Day, who is a member of the Rotary Club of Bahía de Jaltemba-La Peñita, in Nayarit, had started a local scholarship program before she joined Rotary. Called Changing Lives, the program provided students with high school tuition, uniforms, school supplies, and transportation. In addition, Rotary clubs from the United States and Mexico have been investing in the...
Meet our polio partners
From the September 2015 issue of The Rotarian Eradicating polio is a complex job.

Here’s how our roles break down.

Nigeria sees no wild polio cases for one year
Today marks one year since Nigeria last reported a polio case caused by wild poliovirus, putting the country on the brink of eradicating the paralyzing disease. The last case was reported on 24 July 2014 in the northern state of Kano. If no cases are reported in the coming weeks, the World Health Organization is expected to remove Nigeria from the list of countries where polio is endemic, leaving just two: Afghanistan and Pakistan. Nigeria is the last polio-endemic country in Africa. The continent is poised to reach its own first full year without any illness from the virus on 11 August. “...
Australian students take opportunity by the horns
The rules of the Shaftesbury Rodeo Academy are simple: no school, no rodeo. It’s a message that teenagers who attend school at Bisley Farm, most of whom have never attended any school regularly, take seriously. Because come Friday night, these aspiring rodeo heroes want to join their friends to ride bulls for a heart-stopping eight seconds, if they last that long. The school in rural Queensland, Australia, also teaches the boys, who are of the Wakka Wakka Aboriginal people, basic academics and farming skills, including how to care for crops and livestock. It’s a fairly common form of...
