We had another successful Zoom meeting where we learned about Harvesters.  Thank you Joe for arranging our speaker last week.  We will be Zooming again this week.  Despite the stay at home order being lifted on the 11th, we are waiting for the Holiday Inn to give us the green light to meet in person,  They have not gotten their procedures in place to have group events.  Until then we will see you on Thursdays in Zoom.

ROTARY MINUTE
 
 
April 20, 2020

The World Health Organization, Rotary’s partner, is in real need of our Polio Plus dollars.  It seems that some very short-sighted government officials have cut our country’s support of this wonderful organization. 

However, Bill Gates and many entertainments and sports figures are coming to the rescue.  So should we in Rotary.  WHO has been at the forefront of every major health pandemic in the past 60 years.  They have also been active in every country in the world to help Rotary conquer Polio and have also been major players in the fight against malaria, measles and other diseases that can be overcome with education, clean water, and good health practices.

Our Rotary Foundation has supported projects all over the world alongside WHO.  Our Polio Plus dollars and our EREY contributions have really helped.

Go Rotary, Go!  Let’s support our World Health Organization and The Rotary Foundation!
