Mariposa Mountain Riders Trail Ride to Cow Camp

SUNDAY, OCTOBER 26, 2014
GOAT MEADOW TRAIL HEAD
CHECK IN AT 9:00 AND RIDE OUT AT 10:00 AM SHARP

This is a beautiful ride just outside Yosemite National Park. Elevations exceed 4,000 feet. The weather is cool and the scent of the trees and vegetation after our recent rain is was so refreshing. The Fall colors are magnificent, and the trails are not dusty. There are at least two creek crossings so horses have plenty of water along the trail. Please be sure to pack a lunch as the Lunch Break will be at “the picnic bench” and bring a halter and lead rope. A jacket is necessary for most folks this time of year. Join us for some FUN and Ride on Everyone!

DIRECTIONS:
From Mariposa: Take Highway 49 South to Oakhurst. Turn left on Highway 41 and proceed to Fish Camp. Continue on
Highway 41 approximately 2 miles past Fish Camp. Turn right on Mt. Raymond Road and follow it back to the paved
parking area at the end. You will really need to watch for Mt. Raymond Road; it will sneak up on you. It is just after
the first Yosemite National Park sign (a stone and wood sign).

Rotary clubs of Oakhurst fight to end polio worldwide

In honor of World Polio Day, which is widely recognized on Oct. 24, the Oakhurst Sierra and Oakhurst Sierra Sunrise Rotary Clubs are holding an open house to inform the community of the crippling childhood disease, polio. The event is part of Rotary International’s 27-year mission to eradicate Polio.

The open house will be held at 5:30 p.m., Tuesday, Oct. 21, at Yosemite Bank in Oakhurst. Appetizers will be provided and beer and wine will be available.

Rotary International’s message to world leaders is clear: support the final push to achieve eradication now while the goal has never been closer, or face the potential consequences of a new polio pandemic that could disable millions of children within a decade.

Since 1985, Rotary has contributed nearly $1.2 billion and countless volunteer hours to the protection of more than two billion children in 122 countries. The disease remains endemic in three countries — Afghanistan, Nigeria, and Pakistan — although other countries remain at risk for imported cases.

“Rotarians have been fighting to eradicate polio for almost 30 years,” says Susan Madden, Oakhurst Sierra Rotary president, “We are very close to achieving our top priority. Now is the time to act, to join this historic effort and to help us cross the finish line.”

A highly infectious disease, polio causes paralysis and is sometimes fatal. As there is no cure, the best protection is prevention. For as little as 60 cents worth of vaccine, a child can be protected against this crippling disease for life. After an international investment of more than $9 billion, and the successful engagement of over 200 countries and 20 million volunteers, polio could be the first human disease of the 21st century to be eradicated.

Rotary brings together a global network of volunteer leaders dedicated to tackling the world’s most pressing humanitarian challenges. Rotary connects 1.2 million members of more than 34,000 Rotary clubs in over 200 countries and geographical areas. Their work improves lives at both the local and international levels, from helping families in need in their own communities to working toward a polio-free world.
