Rotary International released an additional $34.8 million in grants to support polio immunization activities in 10 countries, including Afghanistan, Nigeria, and Pakistan, the three countries where the disease has never been stopped. The funds will be used by the World Health Organization and UNICEF for polio immunization and surveillance activities in the 10 countries, as well as to provide technical assistance in several other countries in Africa.
End Polio Now
Rotary polio ambassador Isabelli Fontana is in India, participating in immunization activities. The Brazilian supermodel went to St. Stephen’s Hospital in New Delhi, and is visiting a special ward that treats children who’ve had polio.”Seeing the children in St. Stephen’s reminded me that the fight is not over,” remarks Fontana, in a post for our blog Rotary Voices.

They are going to have a whole lot of fun, great food (steaks and chicken grilled outside by the chuck wagon), live entertainment and “HORSE” RACES. And hopefully, they are going to raise a little money with a dazzling array of items in their SILENT AUCTION.
Miss Kitty will be there to welcome you to the Saloon, the Sheriff will be looking for outlaws to arrest and the Judge might even hang Jesse James. You never know what’s going to happen in the Wild West.
Tickets are only $25/person. You can purchase tables of 8 if you’d like your gang to stay together. Please contact Charlie Myrick for your tickets, email email@example.com or give him a call at 573-569-8693. Don’t miss out on the fun! Flyer
