Badging The Bridge

 In the background of your Club there had been a small group addressing how we can “Badge the Bridge” from a Rotary perspective, when serendipitously a District Grant offer appeared offering the District Clubs monies that were surplus to requirements.
The guidelines were in brief: -
  1. Show how your project will promote the Rotary brand within the Community
  2. How your project will collaborate with other Rotary Clubs and/or other organisations
  3. Supports one or more areas of Rotary’s areas of focus
The “Badge the Bridge” committee (which included reps from the Mobilong Club), morphed in to a group dedicated to developing a plan or project to garnishee this money from the District coffers ($5k plus one third of our own ie $6.6k total per Club or double if combined with Mobilong).
Our recently appointed Club Marketer in Steve Walker was challenged with putting together a presentation to this small group with a view to finding a project that would give us a very real chance of scoring some lazy dollars from District.
Keeping in mind that time is of the essence (the Grant has to be submitted on 31st of March 2022 and finalised by November 2022).
Monday night Steve regaled us with all sorts of ideas and signs and badging which in the end he distilled down to a project which was: -
Badging all the recycling wheelie bins in Murray Bridge with a large sticker which says “Rotary supports recycling” and the badge might contain the Rotary Clubs Logo, it might contain the Rotary website landing page, it might contain in small print the business that printed the stickers etc.
Steve will follow up on the costs, and present that detail together with an abridged version of his presentation to fellow Rotarians tonight with a further outline in two weeks time. This will give you all an idea of where this small committee is heading thus far.
Here’s the rub. We need you, fellow Rotarians, to give us some feedback on what you think of the idea. PLUS if you have a project that might better fill the bill then this will be the time to stand up and give us your idea. Indeed any project that you think might be worthwhile will be considered, if not for this Grant then perhaps later in the year.
Projects are the life blood of Service Clubs like ours.

  • FOURTH: The advancement of international understanding, goodwill, and peace through a world fellowship of business and professional persons united in the ideal of service.

End Polio Now

In 1985 Rotary launched PolioPlus to immunize every child in the world against polio. Working with our partners and members of the global health community, together we will end polio.
Through the science of vaccines, Rotary & partners have saved nearly 19 million children from becoming paralyzed by polio. Learn more about our work to End Polio Now and how you can get involved: https://on.rotary.org/3eqtrrr

Rotary has been working to eradicate polio for more than 35 years, and we’ve made incredible progress in the fight to rid the world of it forever.

As a founding partner of the Global Polio Eradication Initiative, we've helped to reduced polio cases by more than 99.9 percent.

It’s crucial to eradicate polio from the last two countries where it remains endemic and 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.

What is polio?

Polio, or poliomyelitis, is a paralyzing and potentially deadly infectious disease that most commonly affects children under the age of 5. The virus spreads from person to person, typically through contaminated water. It can then attack the nervous system.
