GENEVA ROTARY CLUB RECOGNIZED FOR SUPPORT OF ROTARY INTERNATIONAL’S END POLIO CAMPAIGN
The Geneva Rotary Club has been recognized for its financial support of the Rotary Foundation’s End Polio Now: Countdown to History Campaign.
At a recent Rotary District 7120 gathering, a certificate honoring Geneva Rotary was presented to Assistant Governor Jim Dickson, who is a Geneva club member.
Signed by Paul A. Netzel, chair of the Rotary Foundation Trustees, and Ian Riseley, president of Rotary International, the certificate states, “Together we will fulfill our promise to the children of the world and eradicate polio.”
Rotary International’s campaign to end polio began in 1985 when PolioPlus was launched to wipe out polio through mass vaccination of children. The campaign has been very successful, with 12 reported cases of Polio in two countries in 2017.
Geneva Rotary conducts a raffle at every meeting to fund PolioPlus and individual club members make donations to the cause.
Rotary International is composed of 1.2 million men and women around the world who donate their expertise, time and funds to support local and international projects that help people in need and promote understanding amongst cultures. If you are interested in serving your community in a new way and are interested in becoming a Geneva Rotarian, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information or visit us on our website at www.genevarotaryclub.org. Geneva Rotary meets every Wednesday at noon at Geneva Country Club.
