THIS WEEK’S PROGRAM

On Saturday evening, September 24, the Club hosted its Seventh Annual Dance for the Children, in support of the worldwide efforts of Rotary Clubs to eradicate polio forever.

With some donations to The Rotary Foundation still coming in, this year’s event has brought the lifetime total to nearly 95,000 children vaccinated.

For more information about these collective efforts, please visit the End Polio website; have patience, please, the website is a bit clunky, it appears catered to teenagers with its huge panels and gigantic lettering, and it is often slow to load…but once you get in, you will find comprehensive information about the disease, the history, the efforts, and the progress.

  4. Thank you for sharing this. As you know, I was hip deep in supporting my son’s team for LACHSA’s 64 Hour Film Festival, and didn’t get out until well after midnight. So it’s nice to be able to view some of these highlights. It’s clear that I missed a wonderful time.

  5. Fabulous evening and even more fabulous results!! We’re “thisclose” to eradicating polio!!

  6. Great event, fabulous dancers, and wonderful cause. Thanks for the video! (and you are dancing next year…)

  7. Great video, Mel. Thanks to everyone who worked hard to put on the event.
