Korean sailor makes waves for End Polio Now
Enjoying calm winds and peaceful Pacific waters, Seung Jin Kim dove off his 43-foot sailboat, the Arapani, to swim with some dolphins nearby. The serenity that day near the equator was a stark contrast to the 60 mph winds and 23-foot waves he had to fight around Cape Horn, the southern tip of South America. But Kim, a veteran sailor and member of the Rotary Club of Seokmun, in Chungcheongnam, Korea, expected such challenges when he set out in mid-October on a 25,600-mile journey around the world. In addition to fulfilling a lifelong dream, Kim is using the trip to raise awareness and funds...
Monrovia club’s Ebola fight not finished
After the first cases of Ebola reached Liberia's capital, Monrovia, last June, local Rotary members feared that the city's limited health care system wouldn't be able to contain the highly infectious, often-deadly disease. Those fears were realized when infections quickly multiplied, underscoring the speed with which Ebola can spread in an urban center. It was the first time the hemorrhagic fever had threatened a major city since it erupted in West Africa last March. Now, after months of crisis-level response, and with the number of new cases declining, club members are looking to the long...

Last Saturday morning, local Rotary clubs headed up an army of volunteers to package 12,000 meals for the Stop Hunger Now non-profit group in just about 45 minutes. The event took place at Nashoba Regional High School.
 
“It’s really unbelievable,” said Stow’s Laura Spear, former president of the Nashoba Valley Rotary Club, of the speed at which the work was accomplished.  She noted that the first half hour of the anticipated four-hour event was devoted to organizing and instructing volunteers on the assembly process. With the actual packaging getting underway at 10:30 am, the finishing “gong” sounded at approximately 11:13 am.
