Rotarians are Life-changers!

They may live next door, work alongside you, volunteer at the local food bank or your children’s school, attend your church or golf at the local golf course. They are leaders in the community and world citizens.
If you are a Norfolk resident, the chances are that you:
  •   were born in Norfolk General Hospital, a hospital that has been supported by Rotary almost since its beginning
  •   skated, swam, played hockey in a Rotary-supported recreation facility

  •  visited Eva Brook Donly Museum or the Norfolk Arts Centre

Well you get the idea. Since 1925, The Rotary Club of Simcoe has been a major contributor in Simcoe and Norfolk County.
It doesn’t stop there! While we are proud Canadians, we are also citizens of the world. The Club has:
  •  since 1967, participating in the Youth Study Exchange program by hosting and sponsoring hundreds of teenagers to and from every habitable continent in the world
  • contributed to the Sick Kids Hospital in Toronto
  • contributed and been involved with Crippled Children, now known as Easter Seals
  •   on-going purchaser of ShelterBoxes around the world
  •   helped with disasters here in Canada with a contribution to the Canadian Red Cross
  •  supported a transport vehicle, an orphanage and health care in Africa as well as Doctors Without Borders during the Ebola crisis
  • contributed to Operation Eyesight in India
  • provided wells and latrines in Haiti
  • provided leadership and financing in the amount of approximately $400,000 for school supplies in Jamaica
  • contributed to organizations that provide education, health care in Central America for adults, pregnant women and the new-born

But the project that Simcoe Rotarians are committed to and dedicated to achieving with Rotary 's world-wide clubs is the eradication of polio. How many service organizations or governments are capable of doing this or even attempting to do this?

End Polio Now!
