ROTARY STUDENT SCHOLARSHIP AWARDED
Rotary honored OHS senior Donovan Yesko at the Club’s regular noon meeting at Lake Terrace Clubhouse. Staffer Carrie Schultz said that Yesko is “one of the most resilient people I know.” “He has a fighter inside of him, a strong family, and he will achieve his long-term goals.”  Yesko will enroll in a UW-Milwaukee Waukesha based program and may eventually pursue business at UW-Whitewater. Rotary honors nominated OHS seniors each month with scholarship grants toward continuing education. Pictured left to right, Rotary scholarship representative Brion Collins, Yesko and Schultz.
 
Impromptu City Update
Rotarians Mayor Bob Magnus and Economic Development Director Bob Duffy offered a city update, from road construction to Olympia Fields, Sendik’s opening mid-October, the bike tunnel on Highway 67 south at a dangerous intersection, delayed dam repair, and the efforts to open the Oconomowoc Parkway passage.
 
World Polio Day is Oct. 24!
In 1985, Rotary International launched an effort to eradicate polio.  Three years later, when the project became a global initiative, the disease was paralyzing more than 1,000 children every single day.
 
Thanks to the work of more than 20 million volunteers, more than 2.5 billion children have been immunized, and the wild poliovirus now circulates in only two countries.
 
Through October of 2020, Rotary International had contributed more than $2.1 billion to the campaign, and it has committed to raising an additional $50 million every year.
 
Oconomowoc Rotary has been a longtime supporter of the Polio Plus Program, even sending Rotarian Tom Snyder to the National Immunization Day in India in 2001.
 
Facts about Polio...
·        Polio mainly affects children under age 5.
·        There is no cure, but polio is preventable with a vaccine.
·        Only two countries remain endemic.
·        With vaccines, we've reduced cases by 99.9% since 1988.
·        Until we end polio forever, every child is at risk.
About a month ago, a group of you raised your hands to join Megan Welsh to bring awareness back to our club and our community about the fight against polio. This group will meet after the meeting on Monday October 3rd to discuss next steps.  All are welcome.
 
BINGO!
Next Bingo at Shorehaven is not until November 28th.   We will remind again, but please put it on your calendar.
