The program at the Rotary Club of Cheraw on October 24 was about polio and the Rotary International End Polio Now campaign.  Rotarian Hough discussed the historical background and presented information about the disease and the three endemic countries, outbreak countries, and key at-risk countries.  Questions were raised by attendees about acute flaccid myelitis (AFM) and Hough shared information from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) about its similarities to polio.

During the fundraising portion of the program, two members of the club, each, committed to match 50% of the amount raised by the club.  Total contributions were $1,940.00.  The photo shows members celebrating while wearing their Rotary tee-shirts.  Go Cheraw!
