Decorah Rotary participating in World Polio Day Tuesday

The Twin Rivers Rotary After Hours club met for World Polio Day, today in Moline.

To mark World Polio Day, a philately exhibition, showcasing 300 postal stamps issued by 122 countries highlighting various aspects of polio virus, was also organised. Film producer Thamma Reddy Bharadwaj, Philatelist Valmiki Hari Kishan, Assistant Governor of Rotary International and other top members of Rotary Club of Hyderabad were present.

The event held every October 24, is a call to create awareness to communities to support the fight towards eradicating the disease. The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation will match Rotary's commitment 2:1.

Those meetings are scheduled for next Tuesday in NY . "We look forward to him joining the conversation", Lockhart said . Malcolm Jenkins told the Washington Post that Kaepernick was invited to the last meeting between players and owners.

In February, King's Lynn Town Hall was decorated with purple lights to support the Rotary Club's campaign to eradicate polio.

Without full funding and political commitment to eradication, the disease could return to countries that are now polio-free and put children everywhere at risk. Since 2013, the foundation has matched $1 for each dollar that Rotary has raised.

Rotary started its polio eradication program PolioPlus in 1985, and in 1988 became a partner in the Global Polio Eradication Initiative, along with WHO, UNICEF, and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
