This is Rotary Week 2013.

Rotary International helps millions of people locally and globally with polio eradication, clean drinking water, sight impairment and peaceful resolution of conflicts.  Rotary's motto is "Service Above Self". 

Noon Club Rotarians will demonstrate their adherence to the motto Saturday with the annual Rotary Pancake and Sausage Breakfast.  The breakfast will be served from 7-10am at the Effingham High School Hearts Rock Cafe.  Meals are $5 for adults and $3 for children and tickets will be available at the door.  Proceeds will be used for various Rotary people-helping programs.

County and city officials formally proclaimed this as Rotary Week for 2013.  Effingham County Board Chairman Jim Niemann is seen signing the proclamation.  Niemann is surrounded by Rotarians Rosie Gibbons, Kerry Hirtzel, Carrie Crippen, Phil Coats, Twila Orr, Mike Varady, Lois Hoene and Scott Mosher.

Effingham Mayor Merv Gillenwater signed a proclamation designating this as Rotary Week in the city.  The mayor is surrounded by Rotarians Carrie Crippen, Twila Orr, Rosie Gibbons, Mike Varady, Scott Mosher, Lois Hoene and Phil Coats.
