Rotary’s World Polio Day
On October 24 Rotary International will be promoting events all over the world. 1,200,000 Rotarians will be taking part in events to create awareness of the fight against polio and the eventual eradication of this dread disease.
Rotary District 7770 (eastern half of SC) will be hosting an event in South Carolina at Segra Park to create awareness in South Carolina of our goal of eradicating polio. District 7770’s 79 clubs and 3700 members will be invited to attend this celebration. District 7750’s (the western half of SC) 50 clubs and 2700 members will also be invited to attend.
The event is open to the public and we will be advertising to come, have fun and do good. We are asking Rotarians to bring their non-Rotarian friends. How else will they learn about what Rotary is doing to eradicate polio? We have a goal of 1,000 people attending. We will have Rotarians and Rotaract volunteers running games, distributing prizes, distributing literature and greeting guest.
