Week 12, September 15, 2019
Congratulations! In one week we raised over 40 THOUSAND DOLLARS for the Bahamas. The need is HUGE. Go to our RotaryDistrict6970 website to get the latest, and to give. THANK YOU.
Shifting gears to another huge priority: World Polio Day is October 24.
Polio cases spiked to 62 in Pakistan this year, compared to 5 last year, as a result of unrest in some areas. Afghanistan, with 16 cases, is the only other source.
World Polio Day helps us focus our communities so we finish this battle. Here are some great ideas:
- The Orange Park Clubs and Clay County Commissioners will proclaim October 24 “World Polio Day.”
- Ridgeview Interact will have a Polio Day display in the school cafeteria.
- Town Center and Beaches Rotaract have a “Happy Hour to End Polio”. That’s fun: have a drink, play games, and help end polio!
Get ideas and resources, and register your event, by going to EndPolioNow.org
Have a great week!
