We are beginning to have SOME Meetings Fridays at Noon in person.
 
Tentatively the 1st and 3rd meetings will be in person.  Due to continuing CV-19 issues we are having difficulty in securing a long term venue.  Until we do,  we are trying a few different restaurants and places that can accommodate us.
 
The 2nd and 4th meetings are planed to continue as Zoom sessions.
 
Please contact one of our Club Officers for specific meeting information if you would like to join us.

How the finght against Polio was wonCBS News has published a brief reminder of the Polio Outbreak and Epidemic that has a lot of commonalities with Covid-19.  The video shows how much and how little things have changed:  Check out How the fight against polio was won.
 
While the CBS story stops shortly after the Salk invention of an effective Polio Vaccine, Rotary has been working to eliminate this disease from all corners of the world.
 
Rotary launched PolioPlus in 1985 and was a founding member of the Global Polio Eradication Initiative in 1988. Through decades of commitment and work by Rotary and our partners, more than 2.5 billion children have received the oral polio vaccine.  Chagrin Highlands Rotary Club member and Past Rotary International Director Dr. Don Kwait participated in some of the initial travels across the world to administer the Polio Vaccine Drops to children.
