Happy October, everyone!
I hope you are all safe and healthy as we move into holiday season!  Eeek! 
This month, our Rotary District highlights our dedication to End Polio.  Currently, there are only 2 cases of Wild Polio Virus for this calendar year, and we are on a path to making history.
Our Rotary members in our District have been supporting the eradication of this horrible disease through many fundraising and volunteer efforts.  We sat down with Past District Governor, Russ Ketron, who is a strong supporter and champion of eradicating this disease and is also a polio survivor.  As our world has been hit with another pandemic, we wanted to hear his thoughts on why Rotary needs to continue our fight on ending Polio.  Check out our monthly video message for his interview.
In addition, as part of our District’s support and dedication of eliminating this disease from our world, we are hosting our Rotary Race to End Polio on World Polio Day, October 24.  We are excited to show our support in eradication efforts and also have some fun at the same time.   Invite your friends and family to this fun event, and of course costumes are encouraged! 
I look forward to seeing you soon at one of our upcoming events or club meetings.  Thank you for your continued dedication and support of our communities and our world.  We are truly grateful for your service!
Yours in Rotary,
