Plan a fun event for your Club to celebrate the AMAZING success of Rotary International’s very successful program to eliminate polio from the face of the earth.
In September, all of Africa was declared Polio-free after four years without a case.  We are down to just two countries—Pakistan and Afghanistan—and World Health teams are going into those areas again to give the precious drops to children to save them from the scourge of Polio.  
If your club is participating in World Polio Day events, either club-sponsored or in the District's Virtual Polio Walk (see flier in this edition of NEWSBITS), you can pick up End Polio Now pins and wristbands to distribute to those who are participating in celebrating World Polio Day (Week)—October 24—31.
You can do it virtually or in person with social distancing and masks, etc.  Give every participant a token of their involvement in your Club’s event.  Thanks to Brett Morey (La Jolla Golden Triangle Club) and Pacific Beach Rotaract for putting our District event together.

You may pick up as many of these items as you need from DGN Chuck Pretto’s (Kobey’s Swap Meet Office, 3500 Sports Arena Blvd, San Diego 92110).  Call Chuck (619-708-1849) to arrange for a pickup time during the week.  

While you are having fun—don’t forget to donate to End Polio Now.  For $100 /person you can join the PolioPlus Society.  You will receive a certificate and recognition at our District end-of-the-year event.  Please contact our District PolioPlus Chair, Dr. Richard Coutts ( ) if you are interested in joining the PolioPlus Society.
