THANKS TO ALL ROTARY CLUB MEMBERS WHO WORKED AT THE 2016 DELAWARE COUNTY FAIR!
Club members volunteered many hours working the Penn West Gate and ushering the Grand Circuit harness races. Volunteer hours for ushering generated $1500 for future service projects.
The Delaware Rotary Club was privileged to have District Governor Steve Sandbo in attendance at today's meeting; Mr. Sandbo was accompanied by his wife Jill. He shared with the club the achievements of the Polio Plus campaign. 2.7 billion People have been vaccinated and Rotary International has spent 11 billion dollars in the project. The result is that there are only 19 cases left in the world, down from 34 cases a year ago. In spite of the barriers left, he urged the club to support the continued fight.
