Polio Pub Night
What a good night and for such a good cause!
99.9% of polio cases have been eradicated from the world by Rotary and its partners, but almost is not enough. If we don’t eradicate polio from the last couple of countries it could spread once more and cripple sooooo many!
Our club switched our 7am meeting to a Polio pub night on Oct 23rd and raised $637 to help eradicate polio. We have registered our event with Rotary International and it will be put on a map with all the events that are being held worldwide during Polio Awareness month.
34 Rotarians and friends joined together for a brew and a burger and laughed and chatted. Al Stjernengaard cruised the room with his donation cup and the John Crowther won the pooled total of $229 as a tax donation. Thanks Al! Thank you Jeannie Trasolini for taking money and then pictures. Thanks Gay and Carly from the Port Coquitlam Rotary Club and everyone else for coming out. 
Yay Team!
Watch out for the 'little ones' on the road Halloween night, Thursday October 31st..
