October is Vocational Month


Show your support for End Polio Now on World Polio Day
Rotary International News -- 27 September 2011
Demonstrate support for Rotary's End Polio Now campaign and promote Rotary
in your community by planning an event around World Polio Day, 24 October.
Many Rotarians have already gotten started.
Australian club members are working with the Global Poverty Project
on a petition drive to persuade world leaders to fully fund the critical work
of the Global Polio Eradication Initiative. Supporters can sign the petition online.
The Global Poverty Project is planning an End of Polio Concert on 28 October
 to coincide with the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting in Perth, Australia.
 Rotarians have teamed up with the group to lobby leaders to put polio eradication on the agenda.
 Hugh Evans, cofounder and CEO of the Global Poverty Project,
will be a speaker at the 2012 RI Convention in Bangkok, Thailand.
Since 1985, eradicating polio has been Rotary’s top priority.
 Largely through the efforts of Rotarians and the Global Polio Eradication Initiative,
the campaign is “this close” to its goal. Polio cases worldwide decreased
by more than 40 percent during the first eight months of 2011,
 compared with the same period in 2010.
And India -- one of the four countries where the virus remains endemic
 (the others are Afghanistan, Nigeria, and Pakistan) -- reported only one case during that time.
As of September, Rotarians have raised US$190 million toward
 Rotary's US$200 Million Challenge to match $355 million in grants
 from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
Though the polio eradication campaign has made great progress, challenges remain.
Seeing the job through to the finish will require redoubled effort and commitment.
World Polio Day puts the campaign in the spotlight,
providing an excellent opportunity for clubs and districts to promote the End Polio
Now message in their communities.
Here are a few ways you and your club can help:

• Create your own “ This Close” ad and make it your Facebook profile photo.

• Host a walk, run, or bikeathon. Be sure to send out a press release about the event. Download a sample release.

• Download a World Polio Day Proclamation and ask your town to commemorate World Polio Day on 24 October.

• Get an op-ed about polio into your local newspaper. See a sample.

• Use “This Close” resources from the Rotary Media Center.

• Make a donation toward polio eradication.

• Begin planning for an End Polio Now lighting to celebrate Rotary's anniversary on 23 February.

The Rotaract Club of Subiaco, along with Rotary and Global Poverty Project,
 invite you to a Breakfast to End Polio.
The Breakfast will be held on 5 October 2011 from 7-9am
at the Perth Exhibition and Convention Centre.
Tickets are available at

The July special is $380 for a table of 8, or $50 per ticket.

South Perth based Mill Point Rotary Club are embarking on a really big fundraising project.
They are attempting to reignite some spark into the heart of Perth
and have ambitiously planned the first annual BHP Billiton Ramble for October 9th.
 Described as a cross between the ‘Amazing Race’ and a treasure hunt,
the Ramble is expecting to see thousands of competitors
 hit the streets of Perth in the name of fun and charity.
More about brains than brawn, teams will use foot power and public transport
 to uncover hidden checkpoints at iconic landmarks and quirky locations
across the city where they’ll solve puzzles and challenges.
The event is accessible to everyone and will have a wheel chair-friendly course.
Designed to attract families, friends, university students and corporations,
 it’s going to be a big day.
Funds raised will benefit Australian Rotary Health and Telethon.
The BHP Billiton Ramble will begin from Forrest Place in the centre of Perth on October 9th.
 Rotary Clubs of Western Australia are encouraged to help spread the word
about this terrific event as well as to join in the fun
and enter a team at

In the depths of the countryside there lived a farmer who took care of baby animals.
The farm was very peaceful until one day the farmer's pig was murdered.
 Now the farmer took this incident very seriously,
so he started an investigation.
Unfortunately, the only witness the farmer had to this murder was his pet bunny rabbit.
Since the rabbit was unable to speak and tell him who murdered the little pig,
the farmer lined up his four prime suspects
-- a cow, a horse, a goat and a duck.
He told the rabbit to pick out who had committed the dirty deed.
The rabbit hopped up and down the line,
 checking each animal, then finally hopped forward three feet,
 and stopped in front of the goat.
 "It wasn't me! It wasn't me!" yelled the goat.
The farmer shook his head and said,
 "The hare's looking at you, kid."
