Dear Fellow Rotarians and Rotaractors,
Did you know that Rotary inducts approximately 10% new Rotarians each year? This means that District 5810 has approximately 300 new Rotarians each year who will receive the benefits from our informative, well organized and enjoyable NEW MEMBER ORIENTATION along side of our Seasoned Rotarians .
At Rotary University, ROTARY BASICS not only serves as the first class of a four part series, leading participants to receive a graduation certificate and become a member of the prestigious Rotary U Alums, it also serves as a fabulous NEW MEMBER ORIENTATION, augmenting each club's introduction into Rotary.
This orientation is well deserved by your newest members, helping them to launch their new Rotary career in the best w ay possible. The program begins at the beginning, with an introduction of the life and times of Paul P. Harris, Rotary's Founder. Then, we cover the events throughout Rotary's history that have made it the oldest, largest and most influential humanitarian organization in the world. What is covered after this is a detailed presentation of Rotary's Principles and Guidelines. Important information is also covered regarding service projects and fund raising. The Rotary Foundation is explored along with the tremendous results of the Polio Plus program. Consequently, the general response to this program is that participants sign up for the next one, CLUB OPERATIONS, (Club Ops) .
We are proud of the evaluations, since the beginning of the program's launch, that have provided feedback of Rotary University's impact on the lives of our participants! We expect the same results from this semester's attendees.

Today marks one year since Nigeria last reported a polio case caused by wild poliovirus. The country is on the brink of eradicating the paralyzing disease. If no cases are reported in the coming weeks, the World Health Organization is expected to remove Nigeria from the list of countries where polio is endemic, leaving just two: Afghanistan and Pakistan.
