Rotary Club of Slidell celebrated National Dog Day by donating cash and dog food to St. Tammany Humane Society August 26. Rotary President Joan Archer asked club members for assistance for the no-kill shelter, which was overwhelmed by animals from neighboring shelters that were flooded. 
The response of members was generous. Rotary board member Ken Thompson delivered the donations to C.E.O Scott Bernier who was very appreciative.
This is one of three projects planned to help our neighbors who were decimated by the floods.

Nigeria reclassified as polio endemic
Nigeria reported three cases of wild poliovirus in the northeastern state of Borno in August of this year. Following the World Health Organization's confirmation of these cases, the country returned to the list of polio-endemic countries. The other polio-endemic countries are Afghanistan and Pakistan. These are the first cases detected in the country since July 2014, and while this news is disappointing for all Rotary members, we are confident that Nigeria can defeat polio. Rotary provided $500,000 to assist immediately with the outbreak response, and an emergency response plan has been put...

Each year, the program prepares up to 100 fellows to work for peace through a two-year master's degree program or a three-month professional certificate program at university partners worldwide.
