End Polio event tonight with John Nanni, we raised over $3000 dollars (matched against Gates Foundation funds that becomes $9000) to support the Rotary Foundation Polio Plus program. Thanks to John Nanni and 5 clubs from the district coming together we had a wonderful meeting. Jeanne Abate did an outstanding job of getting the word out, Gil Barnes ran a tight meeting and kept us on schedule, the turnout of 90 plus people was a testament to our district wide commitment to ending polio in our lifetime. Rotarians, ordinary people doing extraordinary things. Rotarians motto of Service above Self, on display tonight.
