Local Rotary News
The Rotary Foundation's most important goal remains the eradication of polio, a disease on the verge of disappearing, but one that still threatens to reinfect the world through the ubiquity of international travel and misinformation about the safety and effectiveness of vaccinations.  While polio is only endemic now in Afghanistan and Pakistan and that seems like a world away, there is something you can do to help Rotary and its partners wipe the disease off the face of the earth forever: eat wings, drink beer, and have fun!
 
 
On Wednesday, September 18 at 7:30 PM, join us at the Beer Hunter (140, 700 McLeod Ave, Spruce Grove) for our first annual "Pints for Polio" fundraiser.  100% of ticket sales go to The Rotary Foundation's End Polio Now campaign.  10% of food and drink sales that night will also be donated to the cause.  Your $15 ticket gets you in and gets you entered to win door prizes!  Ask any Rotarian you know for tickets, or contact us at info@sprucegroverotary.org or (587) 763-0250.  See our Facebook page for more details.
