Lynwood Rotary Fundraiser to Eradicate Polio!!!
 
Lynwood Rotary is committed to making a difference in our local community and the world. This fundraiser will support the Global Polio Eradication Initiative (GPEI). Please read more about it here
 
 
The World Health Organization (WHO) on 25 August announced that transmission of the wild poliovirus has officially been stopped in all 47 countries of its African region. This is a historic and vital step toward global eradication of polio, which is Rotary’s top priority. After decades of hard won gains in the region, Rotary and its partners in the Global Polio Eradication Initiative (GPEI) — WHO, U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, UNICEF, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, and Gavi, the vaccine alliance — are proclaiming the milestone an achievement in public health. They offer it as proof that strong commitment, coordination, and perseverance can rid the world of polio. 

The Lynwood Rotary Club was chartered in 1936: Club members and officers devote time and money to activities that benefit young people, senior citizens, and those in need. The Club undertakes projects independently or in collaboration with other organizations. We support students from Lynwood High School and Hosler Middle School through the Interact and Youthact clubs that are part of Rotary international's Youth Service projects.

Lynwood Rotary Club's Focus Activities: In addition to a full schedule of educational programs and social activities, Lynwood Rotary Club is committed to the highest levels of community service.

Community and Vocational Service: Learn more about Lynwood Rotarians in action. Lynwood Rotarians support Vision to Learn and help distribute free eyewear for students.

SCHOLARSHIPS: Every year Lynwood Rotary Club provides scholarships to students from our local high schools who demonstrate leadership in action and service above self.

INTERACT CLUB: Firebaugh and Pathway High Schools "Helping Hands," Club Advisor, Mr. Jeff Ballinger.

YOUTHACT CLUB: Roosevelt Elementary, Club Advisors Mr. and Mrs. Millan.

Interact and Youthact clubs are like mini-Rotary clubs. They work with our support and guidance and conduct their meetings and community work just like we do. On average they have about 50 members, who receive first-hand experience in leadership and community work at a very young age.

COVID-19: When disasters occur, Lynwood Rotary steps into action. Join Rotary to support our most vulnerable families in our community, together we will get through this. #LynwoodTogether #LynwoodStrong #WeAreLynwoodRotary

POLICE AND FIRE DEPARTMENT RECOGNITION: Recipients chosen by Lynwood Fire Fighters and Police Officers are honored and awarded at a special ceremony organized by our club.

SPEECH AND ART AWARDS: We sponsor students from Lynwood High School to the District Speech and Art contests, where they can win recognition and exciting prizes.
