The Polio Plus Committee invites you and your club members and their guests to join in the festivity of the R.I President's Dinner on January 6. Meet our RI President, Ian Riseley; hear the latest news on Polio Plus campaign from Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation representative Rachel Lonsdale, celebrate our district's generosity at the half year point; and ... enjoy drinks, dinner and conversation with fellow Rotarians. Who could ask for anything more?!
Please remember there are several challenges in our fundraising for Polio Plus. First, as announced at the 2017 Rotary International Convention, is that we have accepted the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation challenge to raise our matched contributions from $35 million to $50 million. To that end, our 5450 Polio Plus Committee continues to honor those clubs that meet our aspirational goal of at least $50 per member to this campaign. As of November 24, there are six clubs that have met the challenge. Several others are close. Announcements at the President's Dinner will be based on the posted figures available as of January 2, 2018.
Our thoughts are with all District 5450 Rotarians during the next month of joy-filled celebrations. We hope to see you on January 6!
