Rotary's role in fighting polio
When two vaccines were created in the United States, all of America’s Rotary Clubs began to fight this dreaded disease. As a result. polio was eliminated n the United States.
In 1985, Rotary was asked to bring the vaccines to the Philippines to stop the many polio deaths. Our Newman Rotary gave money to this cause.
For years, Newman Rotary has been a force to end polio. One of the most successful years was 2004 when our club held four drive-buy spaghetti pasta feeds. Local school students all worked
on these feeds. They were called KAP (Kids Against Polio); YAP (Youth against polio); HAP (Hi Against Polio); and finally RAP (Rotary Against polio. Yolo Middle School raised $3,750. The four feeds raised a total of $21,000. The Gates Foundation agreed to double that figure so the total raised was $$42,000.
Newman Rotary is in its final days of this year’s end polio drive. All local schools are in their final stages of raising money and the results will be found in next week’s newspaper.
