Our Speaker today was PDG Gail Scott.  Gail epitomizes the theme, "Women in Rotary".  She was an early Rotarian after the May 4, 1987 Supreme Court ruling which prevented Rotary Clubs from excluding women from membership.  She soon became president of her Rotary Club, Ann Arbor North, and was active in the service and leadership of the District Staff of District 6380.  She became active in the Rotary programs of Youth Exchange, Rotary Leadership Institute (RLI); and being early recognized by PDG Virginia Nordby, who was the first woman District Governor in her class of 7 women internationally to become District Governors, Gail was mentored to become District Governor for the Rotary Year 2001-2002.  Within the early months of her administration, Gail was to experience 9/11 and the effects of that upon her administrative year.  Anecdotes of her experiences in the administration of an international District made for an enjoyable presentation, and all who see it will appreciate the changing world we live in.  You may access the meeting recording at

Help Rotary free the world from polio.

For over 35 years, Rotary and its members have been committed to fighting to eradicate polio across the world.

The Purple4Polio activities suggested by Rotary in Great Britain and Ireland and now in District 6380 in Michigan are to raise funds and awareness for End Polio Now, Rotary’s global campaign to eradicate polio across the world.

When a child receives their life-saving polio drops on mass polio immunization days, their little finger is painted with a purple dye so it is clear they have received their polio vaccine.

Rotary’s pledge for a polio free world was made in 1985 when there were 125 polio endemic countries and hundreds of new cases every single day. In the past few years, only two countries have reported cases of polio caused by the wild poliovirus but no child anywhere is safe until every child has been fully vaccinated.

Some of you are aware that we are conducting our meeting via Zoom. Also called a Virtual Meeting, where we assemble at our "home" location and join together via Zoom
