Last Week's Meeting
Two weeks ago Raina Fox spoke on Global Peace Initiatives.  Patty Radoc sent this note with a link to a YouTube Video.
We had an excellent presentation by Rotary Alumni and peace fellow, Raina Fox, yesterday.  Sorry that many of you were not able to attend.  She gave some wonderful information about what positive peace is, what is happening in Rotary on this subject, and also what we can do to also promote positive peace in our communities.  While we did not record her presentation, she gave a similar presentation at a Friday Feature for the District.  Check it out here!
Enjoy next week off for MEA and we'll see you back on 10/22!
Have a great weekend,

Apple Orchard Social
Hello everyone!
Who is ready for some socializing and fun??  I definitely am!  We will be having our 5th Thursday social this month on Thursday 10/29 at Aamodt's Apple Farm.  We will gather from 4:00-6:00.  Please bring your spouses, friends, and family.  There is plenty of room for physical distancing (notice I did not say social distancing - that's the whole point!).  We will provide some light snacks and there is wine and hard cider for purchase.  Bring your warm clothes and chairs.  Hope you can all join us!

October is Polio Awareness Month
October is Polio awareness month.  Let us enjoy the progress, but work on continuing the battle.
The Star Tribune reported that: "As of Aug. 25, it is official. The World Health Organization African Region has been certified free of the wild poliovirus. . . .

Each partner has an important role, including Rotary International, which has been a key partner in the GPEI from the start. Rotarians have raised over $2.1 billion for polio eradication since 1988, including matching funds from the Gates Foundation, which matches every dollar raised by Rotarians 2 to 1, up to $50 million per year.

While Rotarians have been traveling around the world for many years to participate in National Immunization Day (NID) events, even a large group of Rotarians can only vaccinate a fairly small number of children. Their most important role when they take part in a polio eradication campaign is to bear witness to the incredible work being done by Rotarians, national health workers and volunteers across the globe."
