ROTARY’S POLIO PLUS:
Rotary’s Polio Plus, started in 1979, has raised over $1.7 billion, performed countless hours of volunteer time, and has inoculated over 2.5 billion children around the world. Polio cases have been reduced by 99+ % since 1988 (350,000 cases worldwide) to 22 cases reported in 2017.
This January 2019, our own David Rice volunteered to volunteer to go to India as part of a Rotary Polio Plus Inoculation Team and administer the vaccine.
Always a Great Day when a new Rotarian is brought into our club. Charles Hampton (left) was inducted on January 10th. Below, Charles (left), sponsor Norm (center), and presider Dwight (right) conduct the induction.
District Grant Toy Project – J Colin English Elementary School
Our club in conjunction with Rotary District 6960 had a District Grant Project, we donated $2,500 and the District matched our $2,500 so we were able to buy $5,000 in toys, shoes, and clothes for over 81 Head Start students at J Colin English Elementary School in North Fort Myers. Some of the gifts were given to the students on December 14th and some will be sent home with the parents so the students can open them on Christmas Day.
