We had a Rotary for Life meeting today. For those of you who don't know, it is an initiative of the Columbia and Fulton Rotary clubs to encourage organ donations--hearts, kidneys, corneas, etc. We're wondering whether anyone would be interested in joining a Rotary for Life team for the Kidney Walk at Stephens Lake Park in Columbia April 7. It would bring awareness to both Rotary and organ donation. Comment if you're interested in walking or helping sponsor the team. Thanks.

Paul Alexander spends nearly every hour, of every day cocooned in his iron lung, his body being forced to breathe. This was life before the polio vaccine.
