HANK YOU for visiting the Rotary Club of Murray website.  I hope that you will find the information interesting and informative.  If you are a prospective Rotarian, we invite you to visit our club meetings on Thursday at noon at Pagliai’s Restaurant on Chestnut Street.  In addition to food, good fellowship and fun, we have programs about thirty minutes in length that keep us apprised of what is happening in the community, throughout the commonwealth, as well as in our country and internationally.

A project of great significance to all Rotarians is the drive to “End Polio Now.”  We have been challenged by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation to join with them in eradicating polio worldwide.  At present, polio is still prevalent in Pakistan, Afghanistan, India, and Nigeria.  Our club’s goal is to raise $2,000 this year; we are on track to surpass that goal.
