Lockport's Historic Palace Theater marked World Polio Day on its marquee.
As of the end of July, there were only 8 new cases of polio in the world. But, polio rises its ugly head anywhere there is an unvaccinated population.The Gates Foundation is matching Rotary's goal of raising $50 million each of the next 3 years with a 2:1 match (with match, that's up to $450 million!) to rid the world of polio. The rest of the world and private foundations are giving $905.304 million. The U.S. Government...$0.

LOCKPORT — The Rotary Club of Lockport welcomed home a local student who had spent the previous year studying in Austria at its weekly meeting Monday, while saying goodbye to an international student visiting from Argentina through the Rotary Youth Exchange program.
Katie Dickenson, 17, a Lockport High School graduate who will attend Hofstra University in the fall, presented her experiences living for a year in Bludenz, Austria to club members during a lunch meeting at the Lockport Country Club.
Dickenson, who will study music education at Hofstra, wore a traditional Austrian dress called a ‘dirndl” for her presentation, covered by her Rotarian blue jacket, which was adorned with dozens of pins and buttons from her travels all over Austria and Europe.
“I learned so much more than I could have ever imagined,” Dickenson said about the experience, where she lived with an Austrian family of five. “I have a more open view to the world now. Now I see the bigger picture.”
 Since 1929, Rotary International has sent young people around the globe to experience new cultures. Currently, about 9,000 students are sponsored by Rotary clubs every year. Typically, students are sent to another country for a year-long stay, generally living with multiple host families during the year and being expected to perform daily tasks within the household as well as attend school in the host country.
Dickenson’s experiences included a Eurotour through 16 cities. She took high school classes, studied German and made friends on every continent except Antarctica. The Lockport High School graduate showed Rotarians photos from Christmas in Austria, and of course shared her experiences hiking and skiing high in the Alps. She said she volunteered at the Winter Special Olympics which took place in Austria last winter and traveled to Munich, Germany with her host family.
As Dickenson returns home, Lockport Rotarians said farewell to Lorena Baez, a Rotary Youth Exchange student from Curuzú Cuatiá, Argentina, located in the northeastern part of the South American country.
Baez, 17, lived with two Lockport families while studying at the high school, and took part in a Discover America tour along with 83 other international students studying in the U.S. through the Rotary program.
“I expected to come to USA to experience a new life style, learn new things, visit new places, improve my English, discover myself and become more independent and mature,” Baez said. “Right now, a week before going back home, I can say that during this year I achieved all of that and more.”
Baez plans to return home to finish a semester of high school, then will study at a university in Buenos Aires next fall.
She noted during the meeting Monday that her favorite city on her tour was San Francisco and she particularly enjoyed Arizona and the Grand Canyon. But she added that Niagara Falls was beautiful and the winters didn’t bother her too much.
As Dickenson returns to Lockport and Baez travels home, Lockport native Becca Holz left Monday for her year in Austria through the Rotary Youth Exchange program.
The Holz family has hosted several exchange students recently, and through those relationships the Lockport High School student knew she wanted to participate, too.
“While on exchange I don't really expect much of myself but to gain a second home here. I expect to grow independently and become more mature. After working hard towards this exchange every student expects to come back home with a whole new view on their life that impacts future choices,” Holz said. She’ll live in the town of Salzburg.
Smiling as they hugged Rotarians Monday between bites of cake, both Baez and Dickenson return home with a lifetime of memories thanks to the international exchange program through the Rotary Club of Lockport.
“I’ve learned how community matters, no matter where you are,” Dickenson added.

LOCKPORT ROTARY Holds Annual Bushels of Books Program

The third annual Bushels of Books program of the Lockport Rotary Club was a delightful experience. Rotary held its story time and book distribution on June 23 at the Lockport YMCA. The children were divided into two age groups of K-2nd an 3-4th graders, and were supervised by the excellent staff of the YMCA Afterschool Program. Reading Rotarians were children's author Cyndy Cotten, Maria Biano, and Jackie Davis. The program was coordinated by Rotary Literacy Chair Jackie Davis, YMCA Youth director Laurie Ferris.

The Rotary Club of Lockport collected approximately 175 new books, at 5 different locations. Special thanks to DeSalles Catholic School, the YMCA, The Palace Theater, and the Lockport High School Interact Club for serving as collection sights, in addition to Rotary.

Bushels of Books was advertised on LCTV's Community Bulletin Board, Facebook, and Clubrunner. Members of Rotary, and the local community donated new books for some of Lockport's youngest readers.

A number of Rotarians volunteered to place a Rotary Club logo in every book. The children of the YMCA After-School program were very exited to enjoy a story time, and receive a new book as a gift. Children's author Cyndy Cotten autographed copies of her books. Maria Biano, a retired Spanish teacher read in both English and Spanish at the children's request. Jackie Davis, a local voice teacher, sang one of the children's elementary school songs prior to reading her selection.

The children were invited to select a new book following the story time. It was a wonderful event. The reminder of the books will be given to each child attending the YMCA Day Camp, which begins next week.

Education and literacy are among Rotary's areas of focus. The motto of Rotary International is Service Above Self.

The last photo is of 3 hard-working Rotarians, (Left to right) Maria Biano, Cynthia Cotten, and Chair of the Literacy Committee, Jackie Davis.

Members of the Rotary Club of Lockport visited the Challenger Learning Center in Lockport, NY, today for a tour of the new facility. Our tour guides were Kathy Michaels, Executive Director, and Jocelyn Welton, Mission Commander.
"Born out of the tragedy that took the lives of the Challenger crew on January 28th, 1986, Challenger Learning Centers were created by the families of the crew as a living memorial to their spirit of exploration. The families knew that a lasting memorial, dedicated to educating students in science, match, and engineering, could play a vital role in America's future."
