What is your club doing to celebrate World Polio Day?  We are so close to eradicating polio from the world that Rotary International and Governor Dave Lorenz want all the clubs in District 5610 to do something special to celebrate World Polio Day on October 24th. This is important so that the citizens of the world know about Rotary's and our partners' efforts to rid the world of polio once and for all.
 
One of the big events planned is the Rotary Clubs of Sioux Falls will hold a Press Conference on the morning of October 22 in Sioux Falls about Rotary's part in polio eradication.  In Rapid City the Rushmore Club plans a free movie for the children of Rapid City.The goal is to to make kids more aware of polio and how Rotary has made it so that children no longer must stay home from theaters and swimming pools at epidemic times to prevent the chance of becoming paralyzed.  A club meeting on polio eradication or a special event on polio would be great.  RI will have further information for events in September and a live digital program at End Polio Now on October 24th.
Please send your club's plans to the District Administrator and me so we can help publicize your event.
