World Polio Day … Interact & Rotaract Clubs & the Purple Pinkie Campaign:

Shortly, Chester Rotarian Mary Elmore (‘Boo’) will have a more complete report on the number of Purple Pinkie and other events held by the Interact and Rotaract clubs sponsored by the Rotary clubs of District 7600.  These events helped raise funds and public awareness about the effort by Rotary to eradicate the Wild Polio Virus.  Thanks to postings on social media, many members of the public had the chance to ask about the significance of the ‘Purple Pinkie’ and learn about our fight against polio.  Thank you Boo and the District 7600 Interact and Rotaract clubs!
