Wayne Wayne Staton, chairman of Polio Plus for District 5890, was our speaker today. He talked about the success of Rotary International's part in a dramatic goal to eradicate polio worldwide and two polio fund raising projects upcoming for the district. In 1988 the goal to eradicate polio has been extremely successful and in 2014-15 new cases have been limited to only two countries. They are Pakistan with 38 cases and Afghanistan with 13 cases.  Because of this joint effort 14,000,000 children have been saved from the paralysis of polio since 1988.
