  • Photo essay: Rotary past and present
    This Membership Month, in celebration of over 100 years of service, we dug into the archives and found any number of parallels between today's Rotary and yesterday's.

  • Rotary Peace Centers shape hundreds of careers in peace and conflict resolution
    With bloody conflicts raging in the Middle East, Eastern Europe, and parts of Central Africa, the message of nonviolence and reconciliation that nations worldwide will observe on 21 September demands more urgent and collective attention.

  • Tips to help your club find and nurture a Youth Exchange host family

"She's been a […]
  • Free vegetable gardens sprouting up around France
    Imagine a community where the residents are all free to plant, grow, harvest, and eat healthy food whenever they want without having to pay for it. Sound too good to be true? That's exactly what residents of more than 20 cities and towns in France are doing through a project called Potalib. Launched by the […]
  • Anti-vaccine movement may have global repercussions
    Supporters of the anti-vaccine movement question the safety, efficacy and necessity of the very medicines that have so greatly reduced our children's risk of catching a host of once-common but potentially very serious infectious diseases, such as mumps, measles and whooping cough. And then there's polio, the disabling, sometimes fatal virus that was every American […]
  • Rotary’s response to Ebola outbreak
    Rotary continues to follow the developments surrounding the Ebola outbreak in West Africa and advice of the World Health Organization and U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, our partners in international public health.

  • Polio's Retreat
    As photojournalist Allison Kwesell walks through the narrow streets of an Indian village, familiarity sets in. She visited here four years ago, when she first met Samir and his family.

Cannock Rotary Club Members enjoyed an evening of Magic to celebrate all the clubs Past Presidents. Close up table Magic was performed by Adam Paul Cooper of APC Magic.

Cannock Rotarians donated £1000 of fund raising money from recent events and personal donations to Jo and Kaisers off road wheelchair appeal. This has enabled Jo to have the off road buggy and Kaiser is now able to come off his lead and chase Jo all over the countryside. Well done to everyone.

Dog handler, Bob and his dog Jake came to the club yesterday evening. This was a perfect event for all. Jake, the Working Cocker Spaniel and Metropolitan Police Dog helped to keep people free from further harm after the 7/7 London bombings. He risked his life to search the bus wreckage at Tavistock Square and the mile-long route from Russell Square to the bomb-damaged train at Kings Cross, ensuring that the area was safe for paramedics and explosives officers. All the guests enjoyed meeting Jake after the talk.
