Dear Rotarians,

Congratulations!  District 5970 was recognized at this year’s Zone Institute in Kansas City last week.  Our District finished second in our Zone (which includes 23 districts) in total giving ($207,549) to polio eradication in 2018-19.  I wish you all could have walked on stage to receive the certificate award.  It only happened because of you!  Thank you for your continued giving to the PolioPlus fund.  Even though a few new cases are still being reported, we’re almost across the finish line, so now is the time to keep the energy going!

Rotary International is launching a campaign called, “Countdown to History.”  Goals were set and pledges were made, the and we can’t do it without you, as Rotarians. We are asking for Rotarians across District 5970 to give a minimum of $40 to End Polio Now. This will get our District to the goal set by Rotary International.
