Dear District 5750 Rotarians, 
You are doing great things and Creating Hope in the World!

In October, we have the opportunity to support Rotary’s leadership in eradicating Polio in the World!
Rotary and its partners in the Global Polio Eradication Initiative have made great strides to reduce polio cases by 99.9% worldwide over the past 35 years, and we’ve reduced the circulation of wild polio to Pakistan and Afghanistan.
That’s why as we approach this World Polio Day on 24 October, as a Rotary member, I am pleased to recognize this progress. However, I ask everyone to help us finish the job and end polio for good to ensure that this paralyzing disease does not return to polio-free countries, putting children everywhere at risk.
From encouraging vaccine acceptance, to sharing factual vaccination information, to calling on elected officials to fund polio eradication, there are so many ways in which we can each support polio eradication efforts. We must all do our part to prevent polio outbreaks in our own communities and continue the march toward global eradication.
We have an opportunity to make history by ending polio, which will be only the second human disease ever to be eradicated, and the time for action is now--visit to learn more about how you can get involved.

Rotary Haunt the Zoo End Polio Now Event – Sat., Oct. 28
In the spirit of our District’s commitment to eradicating Polio, we are excited to announce our upcoming Rotary Haunt the Zoo End Polio Now Event at the Oklahoma City Zoo on Saturday, Oct. 28. Costumes are optional, but you may see some pretty fun Polio awareness costumes including our End Polio Bear!
Together, we can make a significant impact in the fight against polio. I encourage clubs to actively participate and share their events related to this crucial cause. By working together, we can amplify our efforts district-wide.
Winter Membership Appreciation and Attraction Event – Sat., Dec. 16
Mark your calendars for a special event on the horizon – Rotary District Zoofari Light Night on Saturday, December 16! This event is designed not only for our valued members but also for prospective members who are interested in joining our Rotary family. Stay tuned for more details on this exciting opportunity to connect and engage with fellow Rotarians.

Yours in Service,
Everyone Wins at Miracle League
Members of The Rotary Club of Edmond volunteer to be “buddies” for the baseball program – only to find they may benefit the most.
The Miracle League is a baseball program for people with disabilities of all kinds partnering with The YMCA of Greater Oklahoma. Teams play on a custom, adaptive field instead of on grass, no one keeps score, and everyone bats twice in the two-inning game. But what everyone considers a highlight of play is that every player has a buddy alongside during the games. 
Midtown Rotary Update
Midtown Rotary held a Pints for Polio event at Lively Beerworks.  The brewery donated $1 of every beer sold to our Pints for Polio fundraiser.  During the fundraiser we presented Western Heights Piano program with a check for two new keyboards.  The money for this was raised during our brag and boohoo portion of the meetings for the first quarter of the Rotary year.  During brag and boohoo, club members can brag for $1 or boohoo for $3.  For the month of October, our brag and boohoo funds will be going to fight Polio.
Ponca City Trailblazers
The Ponca City Trailblazers Rotary Club is thrilled to reflect on the exciting journey we've embarked upon in recent months. Our charter celebration in September we celebrated not only our initial 30 members but also happily welcomed two new members into our Rotary family.
In August, eight of our members actively engaged in the District Assembly, reflecting our dedication to nurturing leadership and contributing to the district's goals. In September, we collaborated with the local Noon Lions Club during Rotary's Celebrate Community Week, joining hands for a shared service project at our local food bank. Additionally, our club united with a Rotary Action Group and formed a dedicated team that successfully raised funds and participated in the Walk to End Alzheimer's.
We are also excited about our events, the first-ever Pints for Polio & Singo at Vortex Alley Brewing, was held on October 17th, where we aimed to raise awareness and funds for Polio Plus.

Edmond Rotarians Serve up Oktoberfest Frenzy
The Rotary Club of Edmond joined the fun on Saturday, October 14 to add flavor to the brewery’s Oktoberfest celebration and make some money for club projects.
They were able to raise money to support their community.

Greetings from Rotary! We are contacting you today with a reminder regarding the IRS annual filing requirement for all Rotary clubs in the U.S. and U.S. territories.   


Clubs who already completed the requirement this year can disregard this message. 

Whether your club is a subordinate under Rotary International’s 501(c)(4) group exemption or is independently tax-exempt, the IRS requires that all Rotary clubs in the U.S. and its territories file an annual information return. For clubs whose tax year follows the Rotary year, the deadline to file is 15 November. The form a club must file is dependent upon its gross receipts for the year. For more information, please see Frequently asked questions about annual reporting requirements for exempt organizations at

It is important that your club comply with IRS requirements. Please note Section 6033(j) of the Internal Revenue Code automatically revokes the exemption of any organization that fails to satisfy its filing requirement for three consecutive years

Our document, US Rotary and Rotaract Clubs and the IRS: Frequently Asked Questions, provides general information about Rotary clubs and the IRS. For specific questions regarding your club’s tax-exempt status, reporting requirements, or your club’s ability to file, contact local counsel, your tax adviser, or the IRS directly at or 877-829-5500.  

Thank you for your attention to this important reminder. 


Your District and Club Support Team
