Board members of the Walla Walla Noon Rotary Club recently received $200,000 from the Sherwood Trust to start work on a community splash pad for Washington Park! We're half way to a goal of $400,000+. This splash pad could be the first of several placed throughout the community. Your Walla Walla Noon Rotary Club is the point group on this community wide project that is expected to open in May, 2014.

Matching Grant partnerships. Two Rotarians met on Facebook, which resulted in 10 Rotary clubs in two countries completing a Rotary Foundation Matching Grant. Rotary clubs in India and the United States joined in a Matching Grant to install water purification systems in eight schools, benefiting almost 6,000 students. Grant funds were used to purchase and install the water purifiers in each school. This project provides clean water to the students, many of them with no previous access to clean water, resulting in fewer cases of waterborne illnesses. Rotarians have seen the students' interest in learning and school attendance improve, as well as their sense of self-worth.

As I write this message for the month of June, I find myself happy and a little bit sad. I’m happy because during my 50 years in Rotary, I have been privileged to see how much good my Rotarian friends have done in this world.
I’ve been able to witness the smiling faces of schoolchildren who have desks, blackboards, books, running water, playgrounds, and youth clubs, all of which were organized, funded, and maintained by Rotarians. I’ve put drops of polio vaccine into the mouths of children in many countries as we have worked to eradicate polio.
Dear fellow Rotarians,
A Rotary convention is a powerful thing, and a first convention is an experience you never forget. My first was in Chicago, in 1980. That was the year I was president of the Rotary Club of Yashio. I thought we should learn more about Rotary, so I asked nine other members of my club to join me, and we traveled to Chicago together. We did not know what to expect from a Rotary convention. What we found was more than any of us had imagined.
That convention showed me Rotary, and changed me forever. It gave our club something to strive for. I came to that convention as a member of a Rotary club. I left it as a Rotarian. The feeling that entered my heart in Chicago is still there today.
Rotary’s main objective is service — in the community, in the workplace, and around the globe. The 1.2 million Rotarians who make up more than 34,000 Rotary clubs in nearly every country in the world share a dedication to the ideal of Service Above Self.
Rotary clubs are open to people of all cultures and ethnicities and are not affiliated with any political or religious organizations.
