October 24 – World Polio Day

This Wednesday, October 24th, 2012, we will have a joint event with the Rotary Club of Metro-NYC to commemorate World Polio Day at the Down Town Association (60 Pine Street, dress code business professional) from 6pm to 8pm. All members are asked to check-in at the registration desk upon arrival for attendance tracking purposes.

The featured speaker for the night will be Judith Roland from the Global Poverty Project, who is making a presentation titled “The Fight to Eradicate Polio – The Last 1%.” I am expecting 100% of our members at this event to show support for this important cause. We will witness the eradication of polio in the next few years, and as Rotarians, we have to push to make it happen as soon as possible.

On this day, several Rotary Clubs in the District will make a contribution to Rotary CEO John Hewko’s Bike Ride that benefits the “End Polio Now” campaign. You will remember that we raised money form “End Polio Now” this summer at the Standard Beergarden social in August. That money will count as our contribution.
