After a historic year during which transmission of the wild poliovirus vanished from Nigeria and the continent of Africa, the crippling disease is closer than ever to being eradicated worldwide, said top health experts at Rotary’s third annual World Polio Day event on 23 October in New York City.
Polio eradication is progressing in Afghanistan and Pakistan. In Afghanistan, cases dropped from 28 in 2014 to 13 so far this year. In Pakistan, transmission of the disease dropped dramatically, from 306 cases to 38.
Five things you may not know about . . .
David's Quality Electric
Rotarian since June 2013
Committee Chair for Paul Harris Foundation
1) Scuba diving in Australia (to see the sharks) is on my bucket list.
2) My sweet indulgence is having fun in Las Vegas!
3) Hot buttons . . . I really have a hard time with rude people.
4) The one word that best describes me is honesty.
5) What I like best about Rotary is the fellowship with members.
Another Way to Win the Foundation Drawing
Join the Gambling Rotarians
Two random names (with phone numbers) will be hidden in the Wheels each week. If you spot your name, call the other named individual and plan to attend the next meeting. If you are both present, you will each be given a chance to draw the ace of spades from the deck after the regular ticket draw.
So read your Wheels and come to the meetings! Yes--I'm talking to you!!
Red to Blue
Attention all new members:
Make sure you get to know this man, Melvin Edes, Chair of the Red to Blue Committee. He will help shepherd you into full club membership.

Rotarians Volunteer for Kids
Our Raise the bar fundraiser netted $18,000 which was presented to Caprock High School, September 17th, to begin their Snack Shak program.
Snack Pak 4 kids received a $20,000 challenge grant from a foundation in Austin Texas. Caprock students needed to raise the matching $20,000. This timely fundraiser made it all come together for these students. Snack Pak 4 kids plans to have Snack Shaks available in all AISD middle and high schools by the 2015 school year.
The story continues. District 5730 Grant funds where distributed and the share allocated to the Rotary Club of Amarillo allowed us to support the launch of the Snack Shak program at Fannin Middle School. A check for $5000.00 was presented on January 15th to the school principal Nathan Culwell.
