LFL Build Night
On September 26th, our club began building another 8 Little Free Libraries. We had lots of fun gluing and nailing all the pieces of the libraries together! We'll be spackling and painting them on Saturday, November 17th from 4 pm - 6 pm at York Enterprises.

World Polio Day, October 24th
World Polio Day was established by Rotary International over a decade ago to commemorate the birth of Jonas Salk, who led the first team to develop a vaccine against poliomyelitis. Use of this inactivated polio virus vaccine and subsequent widespread use of the oral polio virus, developed by Albert Sabin, led to the establishment of the Global Polio Eradication Initiative (GPEI) in 1988. As of 2013, GPEI had reduced polio worldwide by 99%.

 

Polio is a crippling and potentially fatal infectious disease. There is no cure, but there are safe and effective vaccines. Polio can be prevented through immunization. Polio vaccine, given multiple times, almost always protects a child for life. The strategy to eradicate polio is therefore based on preventing infection by immunizing every child until transmission stops and the world is polio-free.                                                                    –World Health Organization

 

 

Members of the Rotary Passport Club of Pierce County, please consider making a donation to Polio Plus:   https://www.rotary.org/en/donate.  Let’s conquer this disease once and for all!
