The Rotary Four-Way Test refers to building better friendships through respect, trust, reciprocity, shared experience, and mutual enjoyment of each other’s company.  If you’re looking for some of that in your life, I have the thing just for you … SOCIAL SQUAD!!

 

The August event collected $260 in donations for The Friends of the Children’s Justice Center of East Hawaii and we're thrilled to announce the October Social Squad event!

 

The mission of the Rotary Club of Hilo Social Squad is socializing with purpose by providing impactful support & awareness to local causes, organizations, and projects.  This month we'll be supporting End Polio Now!

 

Join us at Temple Bar on Wednesday October 19, 2022 from 5:00 to 7:00 PM.  A donation of $20 per person will be collected at the door to directly support the great work of Rotary International - End Polio Now!

 

Rotary has been working to eradicate polio for more than 35 years. Our goal of ridding the world of this disease is closer than ever.

As a founding partner of the Global Polio Eradication Initiative, we've reduced polio cases by 99.9 percent since our first project to vaccinate children in the Philippines in 1979.  Rotary members have contributed more than $2.1 billion and countless volunteer hours to protect nearly 3 billion children in 122 countries from this paralyzing disease. Rotary’s advocacy efforts have played a role in decisions by governments to contribute more than $10 billion to the effort.  Today, polio remains endemic only in Afghanistan and Pakistan. But it’s crucial to continue working to keep other countries polio-free. If all eradication efforts stopped today, within 10 years, polio could paralyze as many as 200,000 children each year.

 

Social Squad is also a great introduction venue for new people to Rotary.  Bring a friend and enjoy a fun a night of Socializing with Purpose!
