The fight is not over and your help is needed now. District 5170 is conducting a
"Flash Campaign" (60 days) which started March 1 and will run until April 30.
Every Rotarian in our district is being asked to "join the team" and contribute a
one-time $50.00 donation to The Rotary Foundation, in support of the End Polio
Now campaign. Your $50.00 donation will be matched 2 to 1 by the Bill and
Melinda Gates Foundation thus bringing your contribution to $150. 
This 2 for 1 match is scheduled to end at the end of April.

Your HELP is needed today...

Today Judi Sherman presented a brief autobiographical sketch as part of her earning the Club Blue Badge.  Our guest speaker was Patizia Materassi presenting the latest update on the crisis of plastics pollution in the planet's oceans.  It's a huge problem, very detrimental to the environment and a direct threat to wildlife in the oceans.  Patrizia is a member of the Scotts Valley Rotary.

Today was club assembly and among the topics were the upcoming Lacy J Dalton fundraiser, End Polio Now campaign, Redwood Mountain Faire.
 
Rotarian Sue McKinney was our speaker today, introduced by member Cindy Sekkel.  Sue spoke about her Rotary-related activities in Viet Nam.  There is no official Rotary presence there, but she and others have been able to carry on Rotary linked projects by partnering with established local charities.  She discussed human trafficking in the world today and the group she works with provides scholarships for Vietnamese girls.  She brought with her one of the indestructible soccer balls that her group provides to kids in Viet Nam; it seems that regular inflatable balls have a very limited life span.
