Dear Fellow Rotarians in District 7070,

Rotarians in District 7070 have been committed over the past nearly 40 years to raising funds to immunize children worldwide and our efforts are paying off.  You should be proud of the difference that Rotary has made in the lives of millions of children by eliminating this dreadful disease.

I want to thank you for your past efforts and ask that you recommit to helping us raise funds to finish Rotary’s number one initiative of eradicating polio.  Rotary is still committed to raising $50 million a year for this effort.

As such, we are launching the Polio Plus Society and are inviting you to join our efforts to continue to raise funds to eradicate polio.  To become a member of the Polio Plus Society you are asked to commit to making an annual donation of $100 USD or more to The Rotary Foundation’s Polio Plus Fund until the last two countries, Afghanistan and Pakistan, are certified free of the wild polio virus.

Congratulations to Past District 7070 Governor Ted Morrison, District 7070 Governor Elect Virginia O'Reilly and District 7070 Public Image Chair Dave Andrews who made that commitment non December 11 , 2023 at the weekly meeting of the Rotary Club of Port Hope and received their certificates from Rotary International Director Drew Kessler.
