News From Around District 5810
DG John Curtis' October Message
As our 100 degree temps finally fade away and Autumn becomes a welcome reality, We think of things to come. First on my list is that October is Polio Eradication Month. This is the time when clubs celebrate the enjoyment of a Pint or a Pinot, or something else, to help fight the curse of Polio.

Take Action on World Polio Day - Oct. 24
Every year, Rotary members around the world mobilize for World Polio Day.
