Rotary At Work
What would it take to change the world? Rotary's 1.2 million members believe it starts with a commitment to Service Above Self.
In more than 34,000 clubs worldwide, you'll find members volunteering in communities at home and abroad to support education and job training, provide clean water, combat hunger, improve health and sanitation, and eradicate polio.
Rotary Club of Polk County/Mena was chartered by Rotary International on January 1, 2000. The club now has 27 members who are committed to making our world a better place to live. Local Rotarians participate in local and district activities and projects, and contribute to various international projects such as providing clean drinking water to people in Zimbabwe. This is a partnership with Rotarians in that part of the world and the project has already given good water to over 2,000 people.
Rotary’s focus since 1985 has been the world-wide eradication of polio. As of late 2011, only 1 case of polio was reported in the world, but the commitment continues. Because of the highly contagious nature of the disease, the work to prevent further outbreaks will continue until there is no longer a danger of polio recurring.
