ANNOUNCEMENTS

Join Northeast Westchester Rotary for a meeting in 2016.

Received from Rotary International:

To the Northeast Westchester Rotary Club:
Thank you for supporting Rotary’s efforts to raise awareness of polio eradication around the globe on World Polio Day. Your support and promotion of this day were instrumental to helping Rotary achieve worldwide recognition of our fight to end polio now. With your support, 23,000 people in 24 countries tuned in to our World Polio Day live-streamed event and the #worldpolioday hashtag was shared 18,000 times.  Recently, Rotary gave $44.7 million in grants to support immunization activities, surveillance and research spearheaded by the Global Polio Eradication Initiative, which aims to end the crippling viral disease by 2018. 

The SDC awarded the nonpartisan Community Service Award to the NEW Rotary Club at Traveler's Rest.

From the NEW Rotary and one of its members, a musical journey down memory lane was held for the Rotary District 7230 District Conference at the Westchester Renaissance Hotel.
