LANGLEY, BC - The Rotary Club of Langley (evening club) will be celebrating World Polio Day by hosting a World’s Greatest Meal event on Oct. 29, 2015.  The event will be a pot-luck dinner, with proceeds contributed to Rotary’s Polio Eradication program.  World Polio Day (Oct. 24) is held on the anniversary of the birth of Dr. Jonas Salk, inventor of the oral polio vaccine.
Since 1984, Rotary International has spearheaded the effort to eradicate polio, worldwide, forever.  Joined by the World Health Organization, the Centers for Disease Control, UNICEF, and more recently, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, the effort has slashed new polio cases from over 400,000 per year, to only 57 to date in 2015.   The wild polio virus remains endemic in only Pakistan, Afghanistan, and Nigeria.  But there have been no cases in Nigeria for over a year, and it is expected that all of Africa will soon be declared polio-free.
It is estimated that over $5 billion is still needed to complete the vaccinations that will forever erase polio from the world.   Admission to the World’s Greatest Meal is by donation of $20 or more.  Tax receipts WILL be issued.   Contact David Truman, Rotary District 5050 PolioPlus chair for reservations or further details.

Below is a letter from one school we supported last year with school supplies, sporting equipment, music instruments and bolts of material for their dance competitions. It sure is nice to see our funds having such a positive impact on a community and a village being so appreciative. - Myriah Lea Tucker, Rotary Club of Langley


We received the this letter this year from the Principal at Koch Koo primary school.  Principal Alice has given us a letter each year…and those letters usually included a shopping list of needs (not wants!) for the benefit of the school and the children.

Over the years – we have passed the hat amongst the group and repaired the school’s borehole, built teachers desks, provided hand washing stations, provided math/geometry sets etc. The list of our work at this school is long.  Last year we were asked for what on the surface seemed like some “wants”…being sports and music/dance supplies (in addition to other school supplies).  We deliberated this request --- however had fun doing the shopping for the supplies which were delivered to the school by our fellow Rotarians in Gulu.

This year – the letter from Principal Alice…was a big huge thank you!  No asks…no needs….just thank you --- to each one of you who has helped elevate this school to a level of education (and pride in their school) that would not have been possible without your (and your Clubs’) contributions over the years.   -  Carol Tichelman, Rotary Club of Chilliwack.
