This meeting was devoted to raising awareness of Polio and the need to eradicate it.  Rotary has been fighting to eradicate Polio and with the help of Bill and Melinda Gates have made significant head way.  But much still remains to be done.  Click here for the presentation made by the Club President Mike Hodge.

Julie Damron brought in nail polish and at the end of the meeting members had their pinky finger painted and made donations to the Rotary International Polio Fund.  Pictured on the right in the first photo are Rev. Dr. George Edd-Bennett being inducted into the club with his sponsor Jerry Fry.  President Mike Hodge is reading the induction ceremony.  On the photo on the far right George is making some introductory statements to the club.
