At a meeting of the Rotary Club of Cambria in early October, our Polio Plus Chair, Julie Jenkins reminded us that October 24th was World Polio Day and that RI was encouraging clubs to hold challenges from October 24 to November 24 to both create awareness of and raise money for Polio.

Our own “Rotarian Extraordinaire”, Otis Archie quickly volunteered to do “Push-ups for Polio”. In three weeks, at a buck each, the senior-citizen & stroke survivor’s athletics amassed $2,821 in donations from club members that will pay for an amazing 4,702 vaccinations!
