Rotary Club works to eradicate Polio disease


Rotary Club International is working to end Polio disease. This morning local members of the club gathered at Eel River Valley schools for world polio day.

This morning from 7:30 – 8:00 rotary club members painted over 200 fingers purple at Redwood Prep School. Charging just $1 for each painted finger. In hopes to eradicate polio around the world.

Polio is a highly infectious disease that attacks the nervous system, mainly affecting young children. There is no cure, but it is preventable through vaccinations.
