Donors of polio funds

On behalf of the children of the world, Rotary wishes to thank the incredible generosity of the citizens of Nevada County. Members of the five local Rotary Clubs marched in the 4th of July parade and collected money to eradicate Polio worldwide. All of this money will be used to buy vaccine, transport it in coolers and then fund the labs needed to process test results. Rotarian volunteers provide all the labor.

Thanks to everyone who donated on the 4th!

Sandy Conlee

Mother, President

Nevada City 49er Rotary, and Polio Eradication Campaign

Chair – Area 4, District 5190, Rotary International
