Jon PaveyLori Cloutier and Jon Pavey gave a brief presentation on our progress to ward our Rotary Foundation goals. Lori shared that we exceeded our Foundation goal of $15.5K by reaching $22K! She also shared that at $4,146, we were close to our $5,200 goal for Polio Plus. Jon then told of his own experience with polio as a child, and how Rotary’s eradication effort brought him to join the club. As a child, he lost the ability to walk, due to a mild case of po lio. He had treatment, including surgeries, braces on his feet, and “really ugly shoes. “ He feels VERY LUCKY, due to the care he received, research, and advancements in medicine. At the end of Jon’s talk, Lori reported that Bob Doane stepped up to donate up to $980 dollars to meet our goal! Keep bringing in your spare change for the Change Receptacle for Change and Polio cans!
