Speaker:  Our speaker was Glenn T. Garlick.  He is a proud member of the Buffalo Grove Rotary Club and the District 6440  Polio Now Chair.  After the meeting he sent all our members the following email, which recaps his discussion:
    Thanks for the time you took today in letting me speak at your Rotary club, about what's happening in the world pertaining to Wild Polio eradication. Rotary International has made Wild Polio Eradication the #1 cause for the last thirty years and we are very, very close to the end. I am also very excited about the new "game changing" vaccine that was recently developed. I have outlined below the process to join the PolioPlus Society.  Please consider this promise that Rotary International has made on behalf of all Rotarians to all of the children of the world and consider joining the Polio Plus Society.
 To Join the Polio Plus Society;

  If you would like to donate to Polio Plus but not join the Polio Plus Society please go to and follow the "Donate" button.  If you are currently unable to donate then I ask you to "Tell the Polio story" to your family, friends and co-workers.
