Week 4. For week beginning July 27
Have you heard the exciting news, Nigeria has passed one year with no new cases of the wild poliovirus! This is the longest the country has ever gone without a case of polio and a critical step on the path toward a polio-free Africa.
Plan to attend the August 15th Be a Gift to the World Training Seminar to hear the personal story of Ramesh Ferris, a 35 year old Polio Survivor who resides in Whitehorse, Yukon Canada.
He has shared Rotary’s End Polio Now message with countless heads of state and other world leaders including: Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, Ban Ki Moon, Margaret Chan, Bill Gates, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, & Neil Young. Ramesh has traveled throughout Canada, India, USA, Puerto Rico, Australia, South Africa, France, Denmark, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Portugal, and Switzerland, all to convince more people to support the end of polio! He has spoken to delegates at the United Nations Headquarters in New York City and many Rotarians at various Zone Institutes and District Conferences.
The seminar will be held at the Thrasher-Horne Center in Orange Park starting at 8:00 am. The cost of the seminar per Rotarian is $35. Your registration includes a continental breakfast served from 7:00am-8:00am and a fabulous Italian meal for lunch. To register, just tell your club president you plan to attend.
I have personally heard Ramesh Ferris share his story and you will be impacted by his message. Thank you each for your continued service and I look forward to seeing you at the seminar!
