This month, Rotary recoconizes its continuing work to eradicate polio from the world.
On Tuesday morning, 19 October 2021, we dedicated our meeting to this aim.
We started with Jim Dawson giving us an update on the status of RI's global work - go to the "Read more ..." tab below to see the details.
Marjorie Dawson then welcomed Lynne Hagen, a local Port Dover survivor of the polio plague, as our Guest Speaker. Via Zoom, she spoke to us about the nature of the disease and her own personal experience as a survivor; covering her life as a child, as an adolescent; into marriage and career and as a mother of four. What an uplifting story of great human spirit!! 
In appreciation for Lynne's presentation to us, Dave Nicolle offered our thanks for an inspirational presentation and noted that we had contributed funds in her name, to our Operation EyeSight project; this to restore the vision of a senior in Zambia; Irene.
