Mike Butler Shares his Rotary Club Adventures

February 15, 2017 - Mike Butler, President of the Rotary Club of Cedar Falls shared Rotary and his many exciting experiences with the service club.  Mike has been in Rotary for 30 years. He has had many experiences in Rotary but he said that the high point of his membership has been as the club president.

As of February 23, Rotary International will be 120 years old.  It is a networking organization with over 1.2 million members worldwide.  In 1987 women were allowed to join Rotary.  While Rotary clubs have accomplished a great deal for their local communities, one of their greatest achievements has been to contain polio worldwide. They began in 1979 and have immunized more than 2.5 billion children in 122 countries.  Their work has reduced polio cases by 99.9% worldwide with polio only remaining in 2 countries.

The Rotary Club of Cedar Falls club is an important service club in the Cedar Valley and we thank them for their work. - written by Leigh Zeitz
