Foundation Minute for the week of July 25th
 
District Governor Peter Cardamone from District 7150 asked:   Is there any measurable danger to increased human transmission of poliovirus from the anti-vaccination movement in the US or elsewhere.
 
Rocky Jacobs, Polio Coordinator from Zone 33, answers:  There sure is….   The virus, as you know is carried in “waste.”   Our sanitation systems are pretty good …. But waste in creeks and streams while camping … pools when young’uns make a mistake etc. are just a couple of examples.    And with the very mobile populations we have in the world …  Until the disease is COMPLETELY eradicated, those not immunized could pick it up from carriers.  We have had outbreaks in Amish communities in the last 5 years in this country.  The possibility of outbreaks for those not immunized is the reason we are still very active in approximately 60 countries…..granted those countries do not have the water purification systems and sanitation systems we have, but if there is an opening, and the virus is present, it will take it.
 
We are so close – your donation to Polioplus is vital to eradicate this dreaded disease.  As Geoff Gull, Polio Coordinator for Zone 29 states, “On behalf of all of the children in the world who did NOT get Polio/--Thank you for all of your present and past support.
 
Thank you for your continuous support.

John Germ: Champion of Chattanooga
From the July 2016 issue of The Rotarian Just before John Germ dropped by, Rick Youngblood took a deep breath. “You want to match his energy,” he says, “but he makes it hard to keep up.” Youngblood is the president and CEO of Blood Assurance, a regional blood bank in Chattanooga, Tenn., that Germ helped found in 1972. After his visit with Youngblood, Germ strode between mountains of empty bottles and cans at Chattanooga’s John F. Germ Recycling Center at Orange Grove, which he designed, before he drove to a construction site and popped a cork to dedicate a Miracle League field where special...
