Lou Mello, Rotary District 7770 Governor, visited with the Chapin Rotary Club and reviewed the challenging service goals for the coming year, both in our own community and worldwide. Of particular importance was Rotary’s continued aggressive effort to eradicate polio worldwide. Rotary International, with their partners, have immunized more than 2 billion children in 122 countries since 1985. Polio cases have been reduced 99% worldwide, with only Pakistan, Afghanistan, and Nigeria still reporting cases.
Governor Mello is a member of the Mount Pleasant, SC Rotary Club and is pictured above with Lisa Smith, President of the Rotary Club of Chapin Sunrise, which meets every Thursday morning at the Crooked Creek Recreation Center.
Along with DG Mello, pictured are the current Assistant District Governor for Area 3, along with Past Assistant District Governors and former a District Governor, all from the Chapin Sunrise Club.
