The Pennies for Polio campaign began at Diven Elementary school with a presentation by three Elmira Rotarians; Tom Weidemann, Joe Kozan. and Fred Kelsey. Using a wheelchair as part of the presentation, the Rotarians challenged the 2nd graders to create an in-school Public Service Announcement and spearhead a penny drive. Why pennies? Because a single vaccination for polio costs only 14 cents. 
 
As part of the challenge to the students, Fred rounded up 14 other Rotarians and friends to match up to $100 the amount raised by the students of Diven. So . . .

What Is Rotary?
Rotary is a global network of community volunteers.

Rotary club members are business, professional, and community leaders in your locality who meet regularly to plan and implement community service activities and network with other professionals. For those interested, members can also choose to become involved in international humanitarian service efforts. More than 1.2 million men and women in over 200 countries and geographical areas belong to over 33,000 Rotary clubs.

Rotary builds international understanding through scholarships, exchange programs, and humanitarian grants. Throughout the world, Rotary clubs participate in a broad range of educational, intercultural, and humanitarian activities designed to improve the lives of others.

Belonging to a Rotary club provides members with an opportunity to make a contribution to their own communities and to communities around the world.

People join Rotary for many reasons, including community involvement, personal development, professional networking, and camaraderie with fellow members. But perhaps the most important benefit is the satisfaction gained from making a real difference in the world.

 This is an open invitation to you. Come join us at our regular Tuesday lunch or at our monthly evening social.
