Our speaker for Fri Oct 7, @12:00n is Bob Rogers, his topic of discussion will be Polio Plus and the progress in eradicating Polio from the earth.  

Meeting ID: 817 8451 0005, Passcode: 253649

PDG Bob is a Polio survivor, having contracted the disease at the age of 5. With a great deal of therapy, he regained much of his function and now walks without assistive devices and only a hint of a limp, in which he takes some pride. It serves him as a reminder of the presence of polio and its devastating effects. It helps to open discussions with other people and Rotarians who may not be as familiar with the disease or think we have been raising money too long. After he joined Rotary in 2007, Polio Eradication became a main focus for him at the Club and District levels. Bob served as Co-Chair of District 5130’s PolioPlus Committee and later Chair of the committee, before being selected to serve as the Zone 27 End Polio Now Coordinator in 2020.  To date, there are now over 4,000 Rotary members in Zones 26 & 27 that have collectively committed to donating over $519,000 annually to PolioPlus until WHO declares polio eradicated.
