The Murfreesboro Rotary Club continues its humanitarian efforts to offer safe drinking water to distant neighbors. The 100-plus member local civic group is helping desert outpost villages in Argentina that have arsenic in their wells.

English said the project would be finished in about 30-days.
Rotary's main efforts are focused on eradicating polio from the entire world's population. Southeast Asia has now been declared "polio free" by the World Health Organization. India has held that status for three years. Rotary began these efforts approximately 30 years ago.
The Murfreesboro Rotary Club is one of the oldest in Tennessee. It was chartered in 1919 and has over 100 members. It meets at noon each Tuesday in the ballroom of the Stones River Country Club.
