Our club returned to John Burroughs High School again to participate in the St. Louis World Food Day program.  Members including President Terry Baer, Sergeant At Arms Marshall Galliers, Immediate Past President Travis Liebig, Larry Levy, Andy Crossett, Yao Shi and Tim Durbin took part in scooping, bagging, weighing and sealing part of 26,000 meals for delivery to needy recipients in St. Louis and Tanzania, Africa.

The Rotary Club of Clayton-Ladue is proud to celebrate the accomplishments of Madeleine M. Chilton, who recently completed her outbound foreign exchange program in Germany.  We wish to thank her and her family for the interest and support, as well as those in our club and District 6060 who helped make this possible.  Madeleine represented all of us extremely well by completing this once in a lifetime experience.
Madeleine will be studying at American University this fall, and will be pursuing a certificate in German translation in addition to her other degrees.
Congratulations!  To view her Certificate of Achievement, click on the Article link and view in the Page Download Files.

Outgoing President Travis Liebig arranged for a magnificent dinner and tribute to his fellow Rotarians Wednesday, June 25th to close out the 2013-2014 Rotary year.  Several Presidential awards were handed out, including the club's highest honor going to Dr. Jeetu Nanda as the Rotarian of the Year.  Dr. Nanda was recognized for his significant achievement and service through an international cataract surgery effort back in his native India.  Incoming President Terry Baer delivered a wonderful address highlighting club goals and welcoming us all to "Light Up Rotary."

Kevin Demoff, COO of the St. Louis Rams, addresses our club during the pre-season.  He told a memorable story regarding the Rams' pursuit of head coach, Jeff Fischer, along with some humorous references to cutting players so they can be future Rotarians.



A small but determined group of Rotarians led by our President, Travis Liebig, gathered at John Burroughs School October 11th to package meals as a part of St. Louis World Food Day.  Backed by a generous donation from our Charitable Giving committee, our club not only made a financial impact to the outcome of the event, but also were able to get our "hands on" in the process.  All told, the event spearheaded by a JBS senior resulted in over 300,000 meals to be sent  to famine-affected areas of Africa.

Bringing education to rural Mexican area, one school at a time
When Mariana Day moved in 1989 to the small beach town of Chacala, in Nayarit, Mexico, she noticed that the surrounding rural areas struggled to maintain schools. And most children weren’t able to go beyond an eighth-grade education. Day, who is a member of the Rotary Club of Bahía de Jaltemba-La Peñita, in Nayarit, had started a local scholarship program before she joined Rotary. Called Changing Lives, the program provided students with high school tuition, uniforms, school supplies, and transportation. In addition, Rotary clubs from the United States and Mexico have been investing in the...

Nigeria sees no wild polio cases for one year
Today marks one year since Nigeria last reported a polio case caused by wild poliovirus, putting the country on the brink of eradicating the paralyzing disease. The last case was reported on 24 July 2014 in the northern state of Kano. If no cases are reported in the coming weeks, the World Health Organization is expected to remove Nigeria from the list of countries where polio is endemic, leaving just two: Afghanistan and Pakistan. Nigeria is the last polio-endemic country in Africa. The continent is poised to reach its own first full year without any illness from the virus on 11 August. “...
Australian students take opportunity by the horns
The rules of the Shaftesbury Rodeo Academy are simple: no school, no rodeo. It’s a message that teenagers who attend school at Bisley Farm, most of whom have never attended any school regularly, take seriously. Because come Friday night, these aspiring rodeo heroes want to join their friends to ride bulls for a heart-stopping eight seconds, if they last that long. The school in rural Queensland, Australia, also teaches the boys, who are of the Wakka Wakka Aboriginal people, basic academics and farming skills, including how to care for crops and livestock. It’s a fairly common form of...
