East Wenatchee Rotary Pikeminnow Derby

The annual EW Rotary Pikeminnow Derby takes place each Father's Day weekend.
Covering a stretch of the Columbia River from just below East Wenatchee to just
north of Orondo, competitors attempt to catch the most and largest Pikeminnows
that they can over the course of the weekend in order to receive merchandise and
cash prizes.  The major benefit of the event is the removal of 3,000 or more
Pikeminnows from the Columbia each year, protecting and promoting local salmon
populations by removing a major predator of young salmon.  Lots of fun for
competitors and East Wenatchee Rotarians alike!

Saving lives in Ghana

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.

India celebrates three years without polio

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.
