Rotary Club of Dundee Township to Mark World Polio Day Oct. 24th
and Historic Progress Toward Polio-Free Planet
 

 
 
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.

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”.

“Carolyn and Betsy became members of the club just as I started my term as president a year ago,” said Gullickson. “They both took the reigns as our program chairs and brought us a full year of insightful, educational, and fun speakers.”

“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.”

Kasper is an insurance specialist with AAA Chicago and Little is director of business development & sales with Cerulium Corporation. They are both residents of Dundee Township.

There are currently 36 members of the club who represent a cross section of business and professional backgrounds. McReynolds’ theme for the year is 35/50 which ties in with his goal to reach 50 members by the end of his term. Next year also marks the 35th anniversary of the Dundee Township Rotary Club.

The Dundee Township Rotary Club meets every Tuesday at 12 noon at Emmett’s in West Dundee. Those interested in finding out more about Rotary and the exciting community projects underway are invited to attend guest day on Tuesday, August 5, 2014.

There are 1.2 million Rotarians in more than 31,000 clubs in more than 163 countries.

After investing a committee, trying several locations, and listening to feedback from club members, we decided to move our meeting place to Emmett's in West Dundee. 

Members will have a choice of one or two lunch items.  The meeting space is conducive to club meetings and the acoustics are good.

Emmett's is located at 128 West Main Street in downtown West Dundee.  The change is effective immediately.

See you there!
