budjasonPolio survivor, Dr. Richard "Bud" Phillis, spoke to our group about the importance of of supporting Polio Plus and our Rotary Foundation.
 
Bud told us of his personal and touching life experience with Polio.  Having survived it as a boy, he lost his sister within days of her contracting Polio.  As he referenced, Polio is approaching erradication in the world.  However, it is "only a plane ride away".  Therefore, it is highly important to support Rotary's Polio Plus fund-raising effort to match the challenge grant from the Gates Foundation in an effort to rid the world of Polio.
 
In addition, Bud explained the need to become involved and pursue the goal of becoming a Paul Harris Fellow.  The Annual Program Fund and Foundation are the core of Rotary and what make accomplishing our organization's objectives possible.
