Over 20 Flagstaff Rotarians and guests recently celebrated the season at a dinner held at the beautiful Flagstaff Ranch Country Club.  We enjoyed a fine meal and an evening of merriment while taking in the star filled night sky and mountain views.  A white elephant gift exchange featured some thoughtful gifts, including a toilet bowl night light, an emergency lantern, a tool kit, a man purse and many other fun items.  In addition, guests each brought canned food for donation to the Flagstaff Family Food Center.  Special thanks to Lisa Winborne for delivering the donated food!

Last Saturday was the clearest and driest night in many weeks as Flagstaff and Phoenix West Rotarians, friends and guests gathered under the stars at the annual Phoenix West Rotary Party in the Pines.  We enjoyed the generous hospitality of Phoenix West Rotary.  We were treated early to a deer walking across the front yard, squirrels in the back watching us eat and later to Rotarians learning to enjoy jello shots along with Bigfoot BBQ.  As the night progressed the air was filled with lively conversation and laughter.  A good time was had by all.  A big thank you to Phoenix West Rotary President Sandy for inviting us to share in the festivities.

On July 31, 13 Rotarians and guests met at Casa Duarte for an evening of fun, fellowship and tacos.  We have a great time at these casual after work events and if you missed it we hope to see you at the next one.  Remember you get out of Rotary what you put into it!  See you soon.

Music has been an important part of leading an ordinary life for students at the Music School for Children With Disabilities in Honor of Paul Harris in Lublin, Poland. Founded by Rotary members, the school serves 20 students with various disabilities, including Down syndrome, autism, and visual impairments. The Rotary Club of Lublin-Centrum-Maria Curie-Sklodowska has provided funding with help from Rotary Foundation Matching Grants and the Henryk Wieniawski Musical Society, which houses the school.
After their son Mateusz was born with underdeveloped eyes, Mariusz and Joanna Kania looked for ways to help him be active. When he showed an aptitude for music, they looked for a teacher and were thrilled to find the Paul Harris music school.

For years, Angalia Bianca had slept in abandoned buildings throughout Chicago. She stole. She did drugs. She spent time in and out of jail for forgery, theft, trespassing, and possession of narcotics. But after she landed in prison for the seventh time, something changed -- Bianca knew she wanted a better life. She just didn’t know how to make it happen.
After serving her time, Bianca sought help from a local homeless organization, A Safe Haven, and moved to its shelter in the Rogers Park neighborhood. Bianca followed the program closely -- she attended all the required meetings, passed drug tests, and volunteered at every opportunity.

What is it like taking a large team to Africa?  It has probably been one of the most rewarding experiences in my life. In mid February, I began leading Rotary members from all over the East Coast of the United States through Ghana. I’ve tried to give the team a warm Ghanaian welcome like I’ve received on my earlier trips. A large trip is a real blessing because each person sees Ghana and our work in a different way.

A highlight for the team was greeting the chief of Sagadugu. The team got excited about buying goats and food for children in the villages where I support eight churches. It was good to see the pastors of most of the eight churches, and I had to explain that we were just passing through on our way to Bolgatanga.

Throughout India and around the world, Rotary clubs are celebrating a major milestone: India has gone three years without a new case of polio. The last reported case was a two-year-old girl in West Bengal on 13 January 2011. To mark this historic triumph, Rotary clubs illuminated landmarks and iconic structures throughout the country with four simple but powerful words, "India is polio free."
The three-year achievement sets the stage for polio-free certification of the entire Southeast Asia region by the World Health Organization. The Indian government also plans to convene a polio summit in February to commemorate this victory in the global effort to eradicate polio.
