Our last meeting
Better Together Housing (BTH) has been created by two leading charities on the Sunshine Coast to address the rising cost of living and the risk of social isolation facing single women over 55 years old living alone.
BTH is a platform for participants to find someone to share with, it does not provide housing but does link people together who are interested in sharing their home so that can reap the benefits of a shared housing situation.  We do this by inviting interested people to register to either share their home or find someone to share a home with.
Gail Middleton is Sundale's Manager for Housing and Community Engagement - one of the charities supporting BTH; the other is the Coast2Bay Housing Group.  Gail presented Better Together Housing to the club's meeting this morning and explained the concept in greater detail.  To find out more go to the BTH website and subscribe to its newsletter (scroll down on the home page); liking the BTH Facebook page will help raise awareness of this group in your community.
End Polio Now
How do you eradicate a disease? This is the question that Jennifer answers as she shares the story of Polio eradication. It is a disease on the brink of extinction and the finish line is in sight.

It is a complex tale complete with heroic and deadly twists and turns.  Discover what Rotary and the Global Polio Eradication Initiative is doing to eliminate this paralyzing disease and in turn keep a promise to the children of the world.
RI President's October message
When we reach our goal, polio will become only the second human disease eradicated on the planet, and Rotary will receive international acclaim. But what matters most is the children who will never again have to face this terrible, disabling virus. Rotary must continue to connect the world in the effort toward polio eradication. It is up to us. Let us finish the job.

Foundation Trustee Chair's October message
World Polio Day is this month and we are facing a major challenge. The news out of Afghanistan and Pakistan tells us that we have more work to do. It tells us that polio will not die out quickly or easily.
Most of all, it tells us that we are needed now more than ever. Success will require us to remain steady and show that there is no time limit to our commitment. We are in this to the end, and we will conquer this terrible disease. We will give life back to children and families, and restore hope to communities.
