In October, the Rotary Club of Chambersburg will spotlight the "End Polio Now" initiative by focusing on raising awareness and funds to help reach the ultimate goal of a polio-free world as part of "Polio Awareness" month.
Here's what's going on:
At our meeting this week and through October, we will have an END POLIO NOW container for donations and change at the welcome desk.
On Thursday, October 19th, we will participate in the World's Greatest Meal to Help End  Polio, by packing our own lunches for the scheduled Workplace Visit at the Gateway Gallery Auction House on Kriner Road.  Money normally used for your lunches and money raised by Heather Kohler to appraise your treasures will be donated to End Polio Now.
On Thursday, October 26th, Dr. Francis Philip K. Achampong, Ph.D. Chancellor, Penn State Mont Alto and Polio survivor, will tell his story at our Rotary meeting.  Please bring a guest to help us raise community awareness about this disease.
After 25 years of hard work, Rotary and its partners through the world, are on the brink of eradicating this disease.  As long as polio threatens even one child anywhere in the world, children everywhere remain at risk. Join us in this effort.  Change a life, change the world!
