Perhaps the greatest achievement of Rotary’s first century has been PolioPlus, the collaborative effort to eradicate Polio from the planet.
In 8/04 Glenn Estess, Sr. Rotary Internat’l President, attended RI’s Polio Summit in Delhi, India, where more than 1300 Rotarians, health officials and governmentt leaders (including India’s President) convened to coordinate the final push to wipe out Polio in Bangladesh, India, Nepal and Pakistan. Epidemiologists report that India is on track to stop poliovirus transmission by the end of ’04.
It is only a matter of time before polio is eradicated forever, thanks to the Foundation and our global health partners. PolioPlus will serve as our lasting legacy to the world’s children.

Flying all the way to Belgium on KTEH business may have affected Judy in more ways then one! From the interview she conducted to publicize his upcoming conert, Judy reports that classical music sensation Andre Rieu is a delightful host (watchout, Doug!), and an excellent musician.
