BBRC Members celebrating their EREY achievement

Congratulations to BBRC Rotary members for achieving EREY in donation to the Rotary Foundation. A huge win for our club and the RI Foundation, as we help to make an impact both locally and internationally in Service above Self.

We also took the opportunity to recognize many of our members for their continued commitment as Paul Harris Fellows – our thanks to each of you of your contributions. We took the opportunity to unfurl our new Paul Harris Fellows banner to celebrate all award recipients.

We are on track to have increased our giving by 8% over last year and this represents an increase of 10% per member in individual contributions. We are on track to deliver $33K to the RI Foundation. Well done to everyone in helping us to reach EREY for this Rotary year.

In Support of Rotary's World Polio Day

by Kaj Pedersen

Polio Outreach’s Paul Jeganathan and BBRC President, Kaj Pedersen after Paul’s story at our club meeting

In 1985, Rotary launched its PolioPlus program, the first initiative to tackle global polio eradication through the mass vaccination of children. Rotary has contributed more than $1.7 billion and countless volunteer hours to immunize more than 2.5 billion children in 122 countries. In addition, Rotary’s advocacy efforts have played a role in decisions by donor governments to contribute more than $7.2 billion to the effort.

To support this effort and the upcoming Rotary EndPolio Day, BBRC held a meeting where we honored the work of Pakistan in its eradication efforts, promoted the B&MG Foundation’s celebration on October 24th and we also learned about polio survivor’s journey dealing with the impact of this virus – we appreciate Paul Jeganathan’s story and learning about Polio Outreach’s work.  There is still much to do, even with being close to stopping polio and you can learn more by clicking the yellow button.

If you have not already done so, please help our club achieve our goal of 100% pledged by this Friday, December 2nd.

It is as easy as completing pledge form, or simply bring a check to this Friday’s meeting – payable to The Rotary Foundation. The Rotary Foundation Committee will again have a table at Friday’s meeting to assist you in completing your pledge.
