World Immunization Week is April 24-30th 2023

Next week is World Immunization Week.

This is important to Rotarians because Global Polio Eradication is our number one priority, and the key to wiping out polio is to immunize all children against polio.

Rotary’s work on polio eradication is proof that vaccines save lives. 3 billion children have been vaccinated against polio and the cases of polio have been reduced by 99.9% since 1988. But we know the job is not done until every child is vaccinated, and polio is stopped for good. Help us share the message that #VaccinesWork.

Every donation helps us obtain the support, transport, and materials needed in the fight against polio. Right now, all donations are matched 2:1 by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, tripling your impact!

End Polio now!

Rotary Lunch Program: Invention Convention 2023

Invention Convention 2023   On Tuesday, March 21st 2023, our lunch program is our annual Invention Convention.

Every year, Rotary Club of Greater Bend hosts the “Invention Convention” where students from Miller Elementary School are encouraged to think up (and present to the club and their family members) their inventions to “save the world” or just make life a little easier for all of us.

It’s absolutely amazing what ideas these young entrepreneurs come up with and this event always leaves us feeling more positive about the future!

Club members help with judging which takes a good half day since virtually every student at the school takes part in this fun event!
