It was great to hear from our District Governor Russell Johnson last week.  He had a great message of the many things that Rotary is doing both locally and globally.  One of the highlights that stuck out to me is the recent update on Rotary International's mission to eradicate Polio from the globe.  From my understanding, for the past 3 years, there has only been polio cases in 2 countries, Afghanistan and Pakistan.  Russell mentioned that there hasn't been a new case of polio in the world in 6 months.  A big milestone is to go one year without a case, so everybody is holding their breath when the latest updates are released each month.  We are so close to eradicating Polio from the globe!
