AG Assistant Dave spoke about his role as chair of the Polio Plus District Committee.  Oct 24 is World Polio Day and he is urging all Club to plan a event for that day to educate about the threat of polio and to raise money to help eradicate it through the Rotary Foundation (RF).  The District is planning several ventures to remind people about the threat of polio. AGA Dave also pointed out the RF is using the infrastructure set up for polio vaccinations to help with the COVID-19 crisis in some countries.
