 Rotary's Rural Urban Auction Items For You To Consider:

Rotary's Rural Urban Auction on April 14th offers a bird's eye view of St. Marys. Guests can bid on a scenic flight over the St. Marys area, emanating from and returning to Stratford Airport. The approximately 45 minute flight will be for two people, sometime in the warmer months on a date mutually convenient to the successful bidder and the host.

The flight is donated and hosted by Dr. Ellis Scott, who is retired and lives in St. Marys. Rotary is indebted to Dr. Scott for his cooperation and generosity.

Rotary makes high-quality health care available to vulnerable mothers and children so they can live longer and grow stronger.

We expand access to quality care, so mothers and children everywhere can have the same opportunities for a healthy future. An estimated 5.9 million children under the age of five die each year because of malnutrition, inadequate health care, and poor sanitation — all of which can be prevented.



How Rotary makes help happen

Rotary provides education, immunizations, birth kits, and mobile health clinics. Women are taught how to prevent mother-to-infant HIV transmission, how to breast-feed, and how to protect themselves and their children from disease.



Healing scars of war

In the mountains of Poland, 26 children traumatized by violence get a chance to be kids again at Rotary camp where psychologists mix escape and therapy.



Sustainable programs

Rotary programs improve women’s access to skilled health personnel: doctors, nurses, midwives, or community health care workers.



Clean births

Rotary members distribute clean birth kits and train health workers in safe delivery of babies.
