Come See the Iron Lung on Display September 3 at the Loons Game and September 5th at the Tridge Walk. We picked up this awesome life-saving instrument from the 1950s today for the Rotary polio eradication outreach and fund-raising events in Midland over the next week. Wow, the emergency bellows still works! The lung was used to provide negative pressure to help people breath after their muscles were paralyzed due to polio. Midland lost 4 people to polio at the height of the 1949 epidemic. Although polio was eradicated in the USA by 1978, cases world wide were 350,000 a year in 1988 when Rotary got involved to about 30 a year in only 3 countries. Come learn about this and what Rotary is doing world wide to eradicate polio! See you at the Loons Game or the Tridge Walk.
 

 
 
Hi y'all it's time  to think about going to Atlanta  for the International Convention next June.
 
There's lots to do and see...Georgia Aquarium, Civil  War sites and cyclorama, Coca-Cola and more.
 
Of course the Convention will be fantastic, celebrating the 100th Anniversary of the Foundation started by Arch Klumph. You really learn and see the length and breadth of our great organization.
