Thank you, Rotarian Leslie Underhill for presenting the program on Polio and the origin of Rotary's involvement to aid in eliminating this horrible disease.  The Rotary Club in Trenton NJ, during the 1970's had the vision to eradicate Polio.  By 1985 Rotary had Polio Plus, which had raised $247 Million to combat Polio.  400 million children need to be immunized every year.  This year, there were 11 cases of Polio in Nigeria.
