“As part of an R.I. project to incorporate into a new headquarters in Evanston, Illinois, pieces of stone from every country with a Rotary Club, Port Louis RC , Mauritius, had a block of blue basalt prepared, which was shipped in August 1966. These stones were native stones from the country of origin and were to have the name of the first Rotary Club from that country and the year of its founding. The country stones apparently did exist in the Ridge Avenue building and were incorporated into a wall. They were not incorporated into the current Headquarters building when R.I. moved in the 1980s. There are two stones in the archives as examples – they are 12″ x 12” square – and one metal square that says: ‘Each of these native stones was contributed by the first Rotary Club in the country the stone represents. The plaque identifies the country, the first Rotary Club there and the year in which it was formed.’

Thanks to R.I .Archivist, Stephanie Giordano for the above. Basil Lewis, 4 April 2011, posted by Jack M. B. Selway<style=”font-size: 9pt”=””> *</style=”font-size:>Cal Thomson Photos

As the members of the Rotary Club from all over the world work hard to create a sense of happiness and friendship among people across all countries, one must work that hard on themselves as well. It has been noted that with hectic lifestyles come along poor dietary habits, lack of sleep and practically no time to look after oneself.

This gives rise to consumption of food and drinks that cause more harm than good. Foods and drinks that contain high amounts of sugar, or mono sodium glutamate, might taste well but cause the entry of toxins into the body. These toxins, in turn, affect the organs of the body that deviate from their normal functioning. This gives rise to a highly toxic body that requires detoxification.

However, for detoxification, visiting a doctor causes apprehension because not only are the procedures long and scary but are expensive as well. Instead of that, an excellent option is Detoxic.

It is a natural product that has been derived from natural herbal extracts of as many as 20 components. It is a simple way in which your body can be cleansed from within and all the toxins flushed out.

It benefits the body by improving the immune system that helps to give a clearer brighter skin. It also aids the gastrointestinal functioning and causes relief from deteriorated digestion. It detoxifies the skin, intestines, lymph nodes, liver and other organs revitalizing the body completely.

Placing an order for Detoxic is also very easy. The product is available and can be delivered with ease when the order is placed on its official website. There are also many promotional offers that are available on the website for you to take advantage of.
