The Chula Vista Sunrise Rotary Club has been collecting spare change since July for their new Pennies for Polio jar in honor of World Polio Day this past week.  The Club's co-presidents, Chris and Rochelle Carroll, challenged members to "fill the jar."  The Club recognized World Polio Day with an inspirational presentation from polio survivor, Tish Caligner who contracted polio at the age of 10.  Living with her family in Panama, Tish had broken her arm playing outside and was taken to the hospital.  It was in the hospital that she was exposed to the deadly polio virus.  Tish shared the stories of living with polio as a child and the challenges she has overcome along her journey.  Tish was awarded the Club's Inspiration of the Month Award.  After reviewing the historic timeline of Rotary's involvement with polio eradication, club members rose to the challenge of filling the jar.  This, small but mighty club's efforts overflowed the top!  Next week, the Club will use a coin counter to see how much change they collected and will be donating to End Polio Now, with (of course) a contest to see who can come close to guessing the amount in the jar.  What a great way to recognize World Polio Day!
