End Polio

What does the Rotary do?

I couldn’t answer that. After all, I’m not a member. I had some vague notion they were business people promoting the retail environment in local communities. So I checked our flyer where nicely listed under Where the Money Goes!

are listed in order of importance many charitable activities the Clarkston Rotary supports. And what do you know–no businesses listed.

Now the Clarkston Rotary joins with Rotary International in the drive to end polio. I remember lining up for shots before I could enter first grade. I remember the Salk oral vaccine when I was in 7th grade and now Polio may be eradicated world wide in just a matter of a few years.

And you can be a part of that. Come ride Rivers and Ridges and help end polio.

Thank you,

You are great!


Historic Bonsecours Market in Old Montréal is illuminated with “En finir avel la polio” (End Polio Now).

Rotary, along with our partners, has reduced polio cases by 99 percent worldwide since our first project to vaccinate children in the Philippines in 1979. We are close to eradicating polio, but we need your help. Whether you have a few minutes or a few hours, here are some ways to make a global impact and protect children against polio forever.
