From the President
We like to say over here at Metro Savannah that we're not your grandfather's Rotary Club, but that's not a knock on your grandfather or any other club. We're proud to  be members of Rotary International, believe strongly in its mission and traditions, and partner frequently with other clubs in the area. We're just a bit different.
 
Most Metro Rotarians -- though certainly not all of us -- are under the age of 50. We have the standard lunch meetings, but we also participate in monthly volunteer service projects and socials, throw club events that have become legendary, and host speakers who can shed light on our world and challenge our way of thinking.
 
Interested in joining us? We love to host visiting Rotarians and their guests! Rotarians, please check out our calendar to see when you can join us. Non-Rotarians must be invited by a friend or colleague who is already a member of Metro Savannah Rotary.
 
Thanks for checking out Metro.   
 
Cheers,
 
Leigh Acevedo

Our Stories
Since Rotary launched its PolicyPlus program in 1985 it has contributed more than $1.7 billion and countless volunteer hours to immunize more than 2.5 billion children in 122 countries. The poliovirus, which primarily affect children under five, invades the nervous system and can cause total paralysis in a matter of hours. Polio is incurable, but completely vaccine-preventable. Only 11 new cases of polio caused by wild poliovirus have been reported this year, all in Pakistan and Afghanistan.
 
At the 2017 Rotary International Convention in Atlanta, Bill Gates renewed and increased his foundation’s pledge to match, 2-to-1, all contributions to The Rotary Foundation that are designated for polio eradication efforts which means THIS IS THE YEAR TO DONATE! This year's World Polio Day, hosted by the Gates Foundation, will attempt to raise $250,000. Last year, Rotarians in more than 90 countries registered over 1,400 events and fundraisers to mark World Polio Day in their communities and draw attention to Rotary’s leadership in the fight against polio. 
 
Tomorrow the Madison County Rotary Club will visit Savannah and work with members of the Metropolitan Rotary Club to construct a wheelchair ramp at the Joy Cottage adjacent to Wesley Oak Methodist Church. The Cottage is the new office of the Forsyth Farmers Market and Mixed Greens. Service begins at 8 am and concludes with a 2pm Fish Fry & Shrimp Boil celebration! Please come help with this project and/or bring friends and family to the celebration at 2 pm! 
 
There's also a make-up service project at the Emmaus House on Thursday, October 12 from 7:30 to 9:30 AM. We need to provide 10-15 volunteers for breakfast preparation, serving, and clean-up. Must be 18 years or older. Must wear closed-toed shoes. Click on Sign Up to view available slots and book yourself directly online.
