Man in iron lung discovers Rotary


Paul Alexander contracted polio during a major U.S. outbreak of the disease in the late 1950s, and has lived in an iron lung since. It wasn’t until a business meeting with a club member in Texas last year that he learned about Rotary’s fight to eradicate the disease.


President-elect urges Rotary members to ‘Be a Gift to the World’

Rotary International President-elect K.R. “Ravi” Ravindran asked Rotary members to use their talents, expertise, and leadership to transform the lives of others when he announced his theme for the 2015-16 year, Be a Gift to the World, during the International Assembly in San Diego, California, USA.
