Our goal is $35.60 per member

By Carl Good III

Our goal as a district is that each club can generate $35.60 per member for Polio Plus during the 2016-2017 Rotary year, which ends next June 30. 
Last week, Chris Spear, president of the Rotary Club of Nashoba Valley, reported that they have generated approximately $2,000 through Purple Pinkie Day activities, and Gerry Gross, president of the Rotary Club of Westborough, noted that they have raised $1,000.  Congratulations to both clubs.
To date, our district has generated more than $10,000.  We have a way to go.  Let's keep it up.

If you are had an event for World Polio Day (or Week), please send me a brief description. We are keeping track of the events. 
Thank you for all you do to erase this terrible disease from the face of the Earth.
