Rotary Club of Dundee Township members are among millions reaching out on World Polio Day, Oct. 24th, to raise awareness, funds and support to end polio.  A vaccine prevents this crippling and paralyzing disease that still threatens children in parts of the world today.  
 
Since Rotary and its partners launched the Global Polio Eradication Initiative nearly 30 years ago, the incidence of polio has plummeted by more than 99.9 percent, from about 350,000 cases a year to just 37 cases in 2016.
 
Toward this end, Rotary members worldwide have contributed more than $1.7 billion to ending polio since 1985, including major sums from the Rotary Club of Dundee Township.  The global Initiative includes the World Health Organization, U.S. Centers for Disease Control, UNICEF, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and governments around the world.
 
To sustain this progress and protect all children from polio, Rotary has committed to raising    $50 million per year over the next three years. The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation will match Rotary’s commitment 2:1.  Without full funding and political commitment, this paralyzing disease could return to previously polio-free countries, putting children everywhere at risk.
Join us for a special event where we celebrate our Thanks for Giving Back raffle winners, dine on a delicious taco bar and sample some of Emmett's best brews!

In his final presentation as president of the Dundee Township Rotary Club, Erik Gullickson, financial advisor at Raymond James Financial Services, Inc. in Crystal Lake, named members Carolyn Kasper and Betsy Little as his choice for “ Rotarian of the Year”.

“In addition, they attended many of our community events and brought the Gingerbread House project held at St. Catherine of Siena Church in West Dundee each Christmas season to our attention. Carolyn has kept this tradition going for the past ten years which her late mother, Joan H. Goalen, started years ago.”
