On Tuesday, November 6th, with a packed house, Barbara Wilson spoke to our club about the efforts of Rotary International to eradicate polio, worldwide.  She described her trip to Ghana and the team of Rotarians who traveled to the remote village of Oblogo to ensure that all children, under the age of 5, were immunized.  Rotary has worked since 1985 to eradicate polio.  A that time 350,000 children contracted polio annually. With partners, Rotary has immunized more than 2.5 billion children in 122 countries.  Only 26 cases, in two countries, have been found this year.  We are in the “end game” of eliminating this disease.
