which began in 1995, and
with the support of the
Bill and Melinda Gates
Foundation, has virtually
eliminated the disease.
Other international
projects include providing
"shelter packages" to
families in countries
devastated by floods,
earthquakes, and war.
In addition, the Bridges to
Prosperity project helped
build footbridges to
provide access to isolated
villages in the mountains
of South America and
supported the effort to
provide wells for fresh
water in Africa. The club also works with
Pedals for Progress, providing new and
reconditioned bicycles tor people in Third
World countries.
Locally, the Rotary Club of Warrenton
supports students with college scholarships
and participates in the annual Dictionary
Project, which provides a free dictionary
for every third-grade student in the county.
Rotary members decorate the Christmas
tree that adorns the courthouse steps each
year and were proud to provide funding
for the clock that was mounted outside
the Warrenton post offi ce.
More recently, the club has sponsored
the Backpack Project, providing county
students in need with backpacks loaded
with school supplies. Other activities include
the planting and harvesting of Fauquier
Community Farm vegetables, which are
donated to local food banks. The Rotary
Club of Warrenton's latest endeavor is
joining several local organizations in
supporting the Fauquier County Human
Traffi cking Prevention Project, which held its
fi rst community conversation on September
5. See the related article on page 32.
The club's annual Reverse Raffl e fundraiser
is coming up in November. This popular

non-Rotarians who wish to participate and
support a good cause.

The Rotary Club of Warrenton is one
of more than 34,000 member clubs of
Rotary International, a global service
organization whose stated purpose is to
bring together business and professional
leaders to provide humanitarian service and
advance goodwill and peace around the
world. It is a non-political and non-sectarian
organization open to all people regardless
of race, color, creed, religion, gender, or
political preference.
Now approaching the completion of its
92nd year in existence, the Rotary Club of
Warrenton recently elected new offi cers,
including Walter A. Robinson, Jr. as
president--Walter's father, Walter Sr., and
brother, Richard, have previously served
as the club's president. Other officers
include Tania Anne Cubitt, vice president;
Lauren Buffum, secretary; Lisa Chiccehitto,
treasurer; Samuel Parker, past president;
and Tanya Wilcox, president-elect. Other
directors and chair people include Frank
Ramey, Jim Bush, Jon Bramlett, Wes
Shortridge, Kirk Vetter, Jack Mallam, and
Amelia Stansell.
The Rotary Club of Warrenton was
chartered on November 9, 1926, and at
the time was sponsored by the Leesburg
club. Many years ago, the Warrenton club
sponsored the Alexandria club, and more
recently, the Gainesville club as well.
Initially an all-male club, women were
invited to participate in 1987. About two
years ago, an Interact Club, established
for young people interested in participating
in Rotary's mission, was organized with
students at Kettle Run High School, where
the inaugural service project included
planting a garden onsite.
The club adheres to the Rotarian's
primary motto, "Service Above Self,"
which is refl ected in many of its efforts. It
contributes to international aid projects,
most notably the Polio Plus Campaign,
