Framingham Rotarians, at the Stop & Shop on Old Connecticut Path collecting Dollars on Wednesday, October 24, to help Rotary International eradicate Polio worldwide. Members of the Fuller Middle School Rotary ‘Interact Club’ helped; they often join the adults on charitable projects within our community.
Rotarians in sister clubs all over the world raise money on “Purple Pinkie Day,” so named because children who line up at clinics for the anti-Polio vaccine must dip their little finger in a violet solution to prove they’re now protected against the crippling disease—and also to avoid a second dose!  Polio still exist in three countries.  We are very close to eradicating it but we cannot and will not stop until it is gone from every country on earth.
