NOTE FROM PRESIDENT CALLOWAY

Fellow Columbus Rotarians:
 
Today is World Polio Day and we should be proud of our Rotary leadership in the 30 year polio vaccination campaign and now our goal for eradicating polio.  
 
Many of you enjoyed our guest speaker at Columbus Rotary this past Monday.  Patti shared her life story as a polio victim as a youngster, a polio survivor as she was not expected to live past age 15, she lived for a long time in an "iron lung".
