wh-4p-olThe 15th Annual Okanogan Omak Rotary Club Wine & Cheese Tasting Event will be held November 9, 2013 starting at 6:00 p.m.  The event will be held at the Okanogan County Fair Grounds Agriplex.  There will be tasting of several wines, beers, coffee, cider and hard cider.  A table full of cheeses, fruit and heavy hors d'oeuvres will be there throughout the evening for you to pare your wines with.  Throughout the evening there will be three silent auctions, a dessert auction and a live auction.  We will also have a wine store for you to purchase wine by the bottle or by the case.  This is the Club's main fund raising project and with the generosity of those in attendance, we generally raise a significant amount of money that is funneled back in to our communities.  We also sell balloons for Polio.  Last year we sent over $2,000 to Rotary International's Polio program.  Please come and join us.  This event has become one of the communities premier events drawing up to 500 people.  We would love to have you join us.

Thank you to all the Rotarians that came out to the winter sports day at the Loup last Saturday.  The weather was sunny and the fresh powder snow made the skiing great.  Bob Goodwin ventured out on his snow shoes.  Jay, Tim and Dick skied.  Walt, Dave, Eugenie and Ron held down the fort and stoked the fire. Thank you to all the spouses (Mary, Paige and Marilyn) that brought the delicious potluck items for lunch.   Brent Yusi and Kurt Danison also stopped by.

Nigeria reclassified as polio endemic
Nigeria reported three cases of wild poliovirus in the northeastern state of Borno in August of this year. Following the World Health Organization's confirmation of these cases, the country returned to the list of polio-endemic countries. The other polio-endemic countries are Afghanistan and Pakistan. These are the first cases detected in the country since July 2014, and while this news is disappointing for all Rotary members, we are confident that Nigeria can defeat polio. Rotary provided $500,000 to assist immediately with the outbreak response, and an emergency response plan has been put...
