Polio Progress
Since the eradication of Polio in the Western Hemisphere, students, youth and many Americans do not know anything about Polio--- how do we let them know?
We can build awareness of the horror of Polio victims and the general public prior to the Salk vaccine by showing the iron lung to the community. Our District is privileged to be the home of the iconic symbol of Polio's past in America.  Recently purchased with the help of anonymous donors and donations we will be able build awareness of the fact that Polio is still just a one plane trip away.  
Welcome to Toronto
Toronto has been shaped by immigrants, who have added new languages, customs, and foods while boosting the economy.
Condo buildings are going up rapidly, and beyond downtown’s skyscrapers, Toronto is a sprawling network of neighborhoods: from ethnic enclaves such as Little Italy and Little India to Kensington Market with its bohemian cafés and Yorkville with its postcard-perfect Victorian houses.
But despite its size, Toronto is safe and easy to navigate. The streets are clean. And the city’s 2.8 million residents – half of whom were born in other countries – speak more than 140 languages. The result is a cultural convergence that makes Toronto feel like home no matter where you’re from.
Come to the Rotary International Convention June 23-27, 2018.
