Zero is the Magic Number! What is that Polio Eradication Picture?   It's a picture of children being entertained while being protected from the paralysis of Polio.  Can you imagine a line of 17,500,000 of these children?  If they were holding hands, they would make a line about 2,476 miles long!  That's about how many children we have saved from paralysis.  And when we reach eradication, we will be saving an additional 500,000 more per year - Forever! Unfortunately, there was one new Wild Polio case this week. The three-year Countdown to History starts after the final Wild Polio case. But today, we start over on our count since the report of the most recent Wild Polio case.

Rotary is committed to raise $50 Million to be matched by $100 Million from the Gates Foundation - for each of the next three years - for a total of $450 million for the Global Polio Eradication effort. Contact David Ross to learn how you can help make a difference.
At our  recent Club Meeting, Judy Olson, President, presented Tom Cox, Jr. with a plaque designating Tom as our first "Rookie of the Year." Tom has only been a member for 7 months, but he has made a huge  contribution in reconstituting the Annual Crawfish Fund Raising Event. Way to go Tom! You have raised the bar for all of us.

Dr. Marshall Guy, Chair of the Rotary House Eligibility Committee, is pleased to announce that we have accepted our fifth guest family to our Rotary House Apartments. Our fourth guest family is still in one apartment and will be here at least another four weeks.  This new family will also be here for 3-4 weeks.  Both families have babies in a NICU (Neonatal Intensive Care Unit) at our local hospitals and live over 1 hour away.  We are extremely excited to have both apartments full!
