the Rotary motto, Service Above Self, inspires members to provide humanitarian service, follow high ethical standards, and promote goodwill and peace

in the world; and

Rotary in 1985 launched PolioPlus and in 1988 helped establish the Global Polio Eradication Initiative, which today includes the World Health

Organization, U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, UNICEF, and the Bill Melinda Gates Foundation, to immunize the children of the world against polio; and
