October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month.
Violence against women is a lot like Human Trafficking – it’s all around us but not that easy to see. Often hidden yet in plain sight.
Like any disease, Treatment can help – but Prevention is the Best Option.
Is it best to get the Flu or to prevent it with the Flu shot?
Education and information are the best tools to help us learn HOW to Prevent and Treat this disease.
The Rotary Club of West Liberty and Rotary Club of Iowa City Downtown have collaborated to bring our 1st Annual Violence Against Women Awareness Forum to the West Liberty Community.
We have 4 great presenters on causes, signs, prevention and treatment.
Mark your calendar for October 19th and please come join us.
Then please participate in International Day for Elimination of Violence Against Women on Friday, November 25, 2022.

MORE DETAILS ON SATELLITE CLUB
The Rotary Club of West Liberty is excited to announce a new way for both existing Rotarians and Rotarians-to-be to engage with one another, stay up to date with community news and events, and serve our West Liberty Community: The Rotary Club of West Liberty’s Noon Satellite Club!
The Satellite Club is a branch of our regular Club, and the members of the Satellite Club are full and complete members of the Rotary Club of West Liberty. The Satellite Club will have a different meeting location, a different program schedule, and most notably, a different meeting time compared to our regular evening club.
We know that we have Rotarians on our roster that would be able to attend more meetings if they were held during the day, and we have identified some non-rotarians that would be interested in participating in a Noon-time club because they are unavailable during the evening, hence the need for this Satellite Club.

Yours in Service,
