Oct 24th is World Polio Day.  The End Polio Now campaign, led by Rotary International, raises awareness of what can be done to make polio a disease of the past. This Wed, October 24th , World Polio Day will serve as a timely reminder of what well-funded and well-supported global immunization initiatives can do to fight back against even the most frightening diseases. 
So far this year there have been 22 wild Polo cases in two countries in the world.  Still far to many.  However, if we stopped immunization now, it is estimated that within 10 years there would be 200,000 children paralyzed by the disease.  Our contributions help in the battle will help to prevent that.
Events such as our Swim for Polio are important to raise funds for the End Polio initiative. Through it and with individual donations by Rotarians our club has contributed $3,402 US this year so far. All donations will be matched two to one by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation so our efforts will be greatly multiplied.
It's important that you support the End Polio Now effort and make a contribution to the cause.  Check out the program on the End Polio Now website and help in the battle to end this disease.  We are so close.
There will be a great opportunity to learn more about Rotary as well as sharpen you leadership skills at the Rotary Leadership Institute (RLI) that will be held this fall in Truro.
The  session will be held in Truro on October 27th at the NSCC Truro campus starting at 9:00 am and ending at about 4:00 pm. 
Members are encouraged to register early for the appropriate Part.  You can find out more about the Institute by checking out the RLI website (click) or by asking Jim or Barbara Goit. 
The Rotary Club of Truro has one of the highest percentage of members who have taken an RLI course of any club in the region and we're lucky that it it happens regularly right here in town.  Invest in yourself and Rotary be coming out to an RLI session.
The 5th annual Bollywood night held September 21st was another great success.  Hours and Hours of planned paid off with wonderful support from the community.  Some 22 Rotarians took part in the evening many volunteering for tasks such as taking tickets, selling bracelets and managing the silent auction.  Jane did a great job again as co-MC this year.  The food was fabulous and the feeling of the crowd was wonderful.
Thank you to everyone for a great event.
Nine rotarians from the Rotary Club of Truro volunteered with the Colchester Community Workshops annual Golf Tournament as on-course help as Hole-In-One spotters, with the marshmallow drive, football toss, cash collection, refreshment cart, sale of contest buttons and cheat sheets.  Rotarians also helped with the distribution of gift bags.
An additional nine Rotarians were golfing in the event and helped with fundraising.  Our teams collected a total of approximately $5,600 and the event is estimated to have generated about $28,000.
