GREETINGS FELLOW ROTARIANS: 

On this page you'll find your “Tool Kit” for this year’s Polio Campaign.  Included is useful information, ideas, “free” brochures available from Rotary International and a Time Line for this year’s campaign. Links to all materials are on the left side of this page.

We hope you will make use of these materials in your efforts to participate with the entire district in helping us raise funds in this year’s campaign.  Our District’s goal throughout this campaign has been to support the effort by encouraging the participation of each and every member in each club in the District.  If you are unsure of your Club’s participation status thus far, please contact your Assistant Governor.
 

Please help us get this year off to a running start by doing the following:
  1. Submit your EPN pledge goal if you haven’t already done so.
  2. Report the name of your EPN coordinator to your sector-head. (link below)
  3. Report the date of any EPN challenge fundraiser to Rich Lalley for inclusion on the District Website and Facebook Page.
  4. Post pictures of your events on District Facebook Page (and you club page too!).  Also, post stories about your fundraisers on your local newspaper websites.
 
Please submit any monies raised in Fall Fundraisers to The Rotary Foundation by December 31st.  If you don’t do a specific fundraiser for polio, think about allocating a portion of your annual fundraiser to polio eradication.  Avoid the June rush to by submitting your donations early.
With the end in sight, every single Rotarian should be able to say that he/she PERSONALLY supported the effort to end polio in some way – and every club should be able to proudly announce its own legacy to end polio.  

We’ve got the tools. Just ask a member of the End Polio Now (EPN) committee for help (see link to the left) Raman Grover has free brochures and lapel pins galore from RI. We’ve assigned an EPN Committee member as sector head for 5 sectors in the District. Each district club is covered in one of the 5 sectors. Committee members are there to help you and to make presentations!

Rotary, along with our partners, has reduced polio cases by 99 percent worldwide since our first project to vaccinate children in the Philippines in 1979. We are close to eradicating polio, but we need your help. Whether you have a few minutes or a few hours, here are some ways to make a global impact and protect children against polio forever.
 
Thanks for everything you’ll be doing to be a part of this effort this year.
