Rotary's Polio Eradication Strategy 2022-26 - Delivering On A Promise


Rotary and our Global Polio Eradication Initiative (GPEI) partners have launched the Polio Eradication Strategy 2022-2026: Delivering on a Promise to overcome the remaining challenges to ending polio, including last year’s increase in polio cases caused by a pause in vaccination campaigns due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Leaders from Pakistan and Afghanistan — the last two countries where wild polio remains endemic — have recommitted to working with the GPEI to improve vaccination campaigns and reach at-risk children. As long as polio exists anywhere, it remains a threat everywhere.

In addition to providing a roadmap to eradication, the new strategy calls for renewed political and financial commitments from governments and donors to achieve a polio-free world. Learn more about the action underway to eradicate polio.

Rotary Club of Stirling's Shelterbox  Challenge to District 7070 Clubs

To our Rotary family in District 7070,

The Rotary Club of Stirling is going to donate $5,000 to ShelterBox and the Haiti Disaster Relief Fund. That is equivalent to approximately $175 per member. We, a smaller rural club, challenge other clubs in District 7070 to recognize our commitment of $175/member and give generously. The current goal as shown in District Governor Ron Dick's weekly email to Club Presidents is is $35,000. With over 1,800 active members in District 7070 we should be able to far exceed that amount if all Clubs participate.

Prior to the discussion about Haiti, we discussed our recent yard sale which was held in the hot and humid weather. It was an extreme amount of work but each day we were able to go home to a satisfying meal, a warm shower, a nice bed, and many other comforts of home. We raised close to $5,000 at our yard sale. It was an unanimous decision to give $5,000 to ShelterBox and the Haiti Disaster Relief Fund. 

Fellow District 7070 Clubs and Rotarians, please accept our challenge!

Yours In Rotary,

Lianne Radocsay

President, Rotary Club of Stirling

Important Update - Honouring Indigenous Peoples Youth to Youth Program for 2021 and 2022

Thank you for your interest and support for the HIP / District 7070/7010 Y2Y Engagement event at Camp Kawartha in early October.   The organizing committee met last week and considered feedback and the impact of COVID developments on the plans.   The Y2Y initiative is a solid program that has been well received, however safety is a primary concern. With the recent increase in COVID cases and the uncertainty of the impact on youth going back into classrooms in September, there is potentially considerable risk to youth being placed in camp rooms together overnight. The committee has taken the concerns seriously and is re-engineering and extending the program.     Please Read more.....

Rotary Youth Exchange is Back !!!

The global pandemic put a pause on the Rotary Youth Exchange program.  Rotary International has confirmed that districts may resume sending and hosting students as of July, 2022.  The District Rotary Youth Exchange Committee is seeking support from our District's Rotary Clubs to select an Outbound Student in the Fall, 2021 and host an Inbound Student for the 2022-2023 school year.

Our District has successfully supported Outbound and Inbound Students for numerous years.  Students' participation in the program provides them with an opportunity to attend a secondary school, be hosted by a Rotary club, live with Host Families, experience a new culture, perhaps learn a new language, and make life-long friendships.

A ClubRunner Event request was sent to Club Presidents outlining timelines and requesting a commitment.

EMBRACE THE LOGO - It's Our Global Recognition

Need Some help With Your Club's Public Image ? Just Ask Us For Help

In the Summer of 2020, we asked Rob MacArthur, our District 7070 Public Image Public Investigator (P I P I for short) to carry out an investigation on all 55 Rotary clubs with respect to their club's Public Image.  Rob looked at their basic web site setup as well as social media channels and the way they were being used. A spreadsheet of the results was made available for our District Leadership Team and Assistant Governors to look at in the Fall of 2020. The Pie Chart included shows a graphical representation of the results.  Where do you "think" your club fits in this chart? What is the Image that the public have, about your club?

Why Is Rotary Branding So Important To Your Club?

As a Rotary brand specialist, I see Rotary signs everywhere. I guess you could say it’s an occupational hazard. Even my children spot Rotary signs wherever we go. So when I attended a local Rotary event in my hometown last year, I couldn’t help but notice how Rotary’s logo was being used. At first, I was thrilled to see the club’s logo featured on a banner welcoming attendees. But then......
