Historic Triangle Rotary Raises Awareness for World Polio Day

For World Polio Day the Historic Triangle Rotary Club members show off their purple pinkies for the extra donation they made to help eradicate polio. We are very close, but years more effort are required to cross the polio eradication finish line even with the support of Rotary International and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. Even in victory, the ravages of polio will be felt by many polio survivors such as club member Bill Tennent who suffers with post-polio Syndrome.
