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.

Early cancer detection is saving lives in Sri Lanka
More than 20,000 new cases of cancer are diagnosed every year in Sri Lanka, and many of them prove fatal. The Rotary Club of Colombo, Sri Lanka, set out 10 years ago to save some of those lives by establishing the Cancer Prevention and Early Detection Centre.  In partnership with the National Cancer Control Programme and the Ministry of Health, the center in Colombo has screened more than 35,000 patients, mostly low-income, and detected more than 7,500 cases of abnormalities that required further investigation. The Rotary Club of Birmingham, Alabama, USA, donated a mammography and ultrasound...

Rotary releases $40.3 million for polio immunization activities
Rotary is releasing $40.3 million in grants to support polio immunization activities in 10 countries, including Afghanistan, Nigeria, and Pakistan, three countries where the disease has never been stopped. The funds will help build on gains Rotary and its partners have been making in the fight to eradicate polio. Nigeria hasn’t seen a polio case since 24 July 2014 and the World Health Organization could remove it from the list of polio-endemic countries as soon as September if no cases are reported. Nigeria would have to go another two years without a case to be certified polio-free. But the...
Knocking down language barriers
Before the collapse of the Soviet Union in the early 1990s, Russian was the predominant second language offered in Polish schools, leaving tens of thousands of Polish emigrants without the English skills they needed.   That has changed over the last 25 years. English proficiency drastically improved after the government reformed its education system in 1991. The country overhauled its teaching curriculum and materials and introduced English as the primary foreign language. As of 2013, Poland ranks 8th in the world in English proficiency. However, one segment of the population isn’t reaping...
