TIMOTHY P. RYAN ON POLIO PLUS
Our Speaker today is Tim Ryan from the Toledo Club, Chairman of Rotary District 6600's "End Polio Now" campaign. Polio anywhere is a risk to children everywhere, and the Global Polio Eradication Initiative is committed to fighting the disease until every child is safe. Since the global initiative began more than 25 years ago, Rotary and its partners have reduced polio cases by more than 99 percent worldwide; but there are three countries where the wild poliovirus has never been stopped: Afghanistan, Nigeria, and Pakistan. Rotary has raised more than $1 billion dollars, committed countless volunteer hours to fight the disease, and Rotary International recently announced plans to contribute another $75 million over three years to polio eradication efforts.
The invocation will be given by Matt Bayles and Jason Price will greet you.
The Salvation Army kettle will be at all of our noon meetings from November 25 until December 16th (today). Please bring your personal and corporate donations at these times so that your club will get credit, this is your last chance. Thanks, Steve Jenkins Co-Chairman.
Carol Garverick is starting an Interact Club at Harding HS. Will you help/volunteer? Contact Carol Garverick @ 740-389-4676, or firstname.lastname@example.org.
This is a chance for high school students to volunteer their time to help people in their community and school.
They will also have an international project, develop leadership skills, and make new friends.
An announcement at Harding will let the students know when they will meet.

REMEMBER THE FOUR-WAY TEST
The Four-Way Test is a nonpartisan and nonsectarian ethical guide for Rotarians to use for their personal and professional relationships. The test has been translated into more than 100 languages, and Rotarians recite it at club meetings:
Of the things we think, say or do
- Is it the TRUTH?
- Is it FAIR to all concerned?
- Will it build GOODWILL and BETTER FRIENDSHIPS?
- Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?
