Polio cases have dropped by over 99.9 percent since 1988, and the world now stands on the threshold of eradicating this dread disease and thereby eliminating the threat of polio-caused paralysis to every child in the world. October 15th at the Batavia City Council Meeting Mayor Jeff Schielke proclaims October 24, 2018 as World Polio Day in Batavia, Illinois. Batavia Rotary Club has pledged to continue to contribute their time and their resources to support Polio Plus and the Global Eradication Initiative.  We encourage all residents to join the Rotarians of Batavia and the world in the fight for a polio-free world.
 
"Service Above Self" brings us out the the Northern Illinois Food Bank on September 27th. Together with other volunteers we packed 1,690 pounds of food providing 1,408 meals for hungry neighbors in Northern Illinois. Thank you to all the Rotary volunteers for doing it again!

“Rotary is the world’s oldest and largest service organization with 1.2 million members in 33,000 clubs across the globe.  Internationally, we’re eliminating polio, providing clean water, battling hunger, helping people read, furthering public health and more.

Locally, we meet every Tuesday at 7:15 am for breakfast at Denny’s in Batavia.  We socialize, hear a great speaker and map out service projects and funding opportunities.

Ticket Sales - CLOSED - SOLD OUT!

THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT.

Donations will fund many worthwhile programs for local, national, and international service projects. We support programs to eradicate polio, fight hunger, provide clean water, promote literacy, and alleviate suffering worldwide.

One of the benefits of Rotary, a Club recognized around the world, is welcoming 8 fellow Rotarians from India. On Wednesday, Batavia Rotary Club Members greeted and hosted the group to their cuisine at "Taste of Himalayas" in St. Charles.  On Thursday, the Newmans hosted a wonderful day for our Friendship Exchange guests from India. A trip to the jewel of Batavia "Fermi Lab" was scheduled and it looks like a great time was had by all. A huge thank you to Tom and Liz Van Cleave, President Rick Pumo, Laura and Steve Newman, Dan Hoeffler and International Chair Leigh Tracy for coordinating this wonderful day of Rotary Fellowship.
