On the second wednesday of March every year the club celebrates being chartered as a member of the worldwide Rotary International movement.
The first time the club met as members of the Rotary Club of Halifax was 99 years ago and since then we have been active in the local community, have supported national campaigns and been part of international efforts to bring health, clean water and effective sanitation to communities in need.
One of our proudest achievements has been our involvement in the Polio Erradication Campaign. When Rotary International started in 1985 there were over 1000 cases of polio being recorded every day. Today there are less than 200 in a year and efforts continue to stamp this terrible disease out, once and for all.
Unfortunately, and like many others, we were unable to meeting person this year so we did the next best thing - we all got dressed up adn met via Zoom! We are not sure how many participants were wearing track suit bottoms under the table or slippers on their feet but the top half looked lioke a party fit for a 99 year old. watch this space for the celebrations when we turn 100!!
