THIRTY-ONE DOWN – 1,095 to go!
The PolioPlus Society for Rotary District 7410 debut at the District Conference in Wellsboro on 12 June 2021. The PolioPlus Society is an opportunity for Rotarians and others to designate at least $100 in donations each year to PolioPlus. It is that simple! PolioPlus Society members earn the opportunity to wear a distinctive lapel pin, which is delivered to them in an appropriate club setting or Rotary event.
At the end of the District Conference, we had 18 charter members of the society. By the end of July, we had 28 members of the society and were still growing. As of today, 31 Rotarians have joined the society, contributing a total of $4,000 to the PolioPlus Foundation. When the Gates Foundation match is factored in, that equates to $12,000!
Seventeen clubs in the district are represented in this Society, including the following: Wyoming, Newfoundland, Plains, Wyalusing, Dallas, Passport, New Milford, Tunkhannock, Sayre, Wellsboro, Stroudsburg, North Scranton, Hamlin, North Pocono, Mountain Top, Hawley, and the Abington’s. TWENTY-FIVE Clubs to go!
Our Rotary PolioPlus cheer likes to say we are “99% there.” Only two countries, Pakistan and Afghanistan still have the wild polio virus endemic in their country.
I would like to see 99% of our District clubs,( and membership for that matter) enrolled in this club. Many District members are already contributing the minimum $100 a year to PolioPlus. Why not fill out the application, document your donation, and join the society?
If you would like to join this society and manifest your passion for this child focused humanitarian effort, fill out the application form on the district website or the form in this newsletter and send to the contact noted on the form.
