Rotary Club of Marblehead Harbor
October 22, 2023
We celebrate the strides that Rotary, in partnership with the World Health Organization, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, and the Bill and Linda Gates Foundation have made since the late 1980's in eradicating the wild polio virus worldwide...with the exception of two countries: Pakistan and Afghanistan. The fight is not over as newborn infants still need the drops and war and cultural differences are challenges that must still be addressed, including post-polio syndrome. On Tuesday, we'll hear a bit more about that from Francie.
What can you do now? When you consider your charitable giving budget, make a contribution to Rotary's Polio Plus campaign. It's easy: Just go to, scroll down and click on Donate and you can designate your contribution to Polio Plus. The Gates Foundation will match your donation 2:1.
Your giving, in any amount, will purchase vaccine and enable on-site workers to administer and track the inoculations of the villages they visit.
We are so close!
Club Election will be in December. In the coming week, please say "Yes!" when asked to have your name placed on the slate of officers for 2024-2025.
