Rotarians Show Big Support for Polio Eradication, Again!

Rotarians around the world are known for their perseverance
–and there’s no better example than our
commitment to eradicate polio. Over the past three
decades, more than 2.5 billion children have been
immunized against this dread disease. As we do each
spring, we asked you to support this vital Rotary initiative
– Polio Plus.


And we have exciting news to share! We received a
total of $8,715 from 49 Rotarians for our Spring Polio
Campaign. The club also donated $2,500 bringing our
total donation to $11,215. This will be matched 2 to
1 by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, bringing our
donation up to $33,645.


The power of Rotary! Special thank you to everyone
who donated to this critical humanitarian effort!


Thank you to our Rotary International Foundation
