This year North Marion is getting a new addition to its extensive list of extracurricular clubs. The Rotary club, which is a nonprofit international service club, has had  a chapter located in Fairmont for years and is now branching out into the local schools. The Rotary club focuses primarily on volunteerism and helps a large number of local and international charities.  Locally the Fairmont club is a big supporter of the United Way, and The rescue mission. Internationally they support the Global Polio Eradication Initiative. Members around the world make donations to the Polio Plus fund.These donations are then passed on to the Global Polio Eradication Initiative, which uses the fund to buy vaccines and other supplies needed to totally eradicate the disease around the world.  The Rotary club is one of the biggest contributors to the cause and with the help of their donations Polio is now 99% eradicated with only 3 countries remaining that have reported cases.Students who choose to become a member of North Marion’s chapter will be able to get their required volunteer hours for graduation through participation in the clubs charity involvement.  Any student interested in joining should see Ms. Sorge the faculty adviser for more details.
