Due to recently expressed concerns locally, from District 5420, and from RI over disease spread (Covid AND the awful strain of flu this year) we are temporarily reinstating the Zoom connection for our meetings.  The on-going use of Zoom will depend on the use of it by our members but for now we are adding it. 
NOTE:  these are hybrind meetings.  You may attend in person at The Bloomington Country Club OR you can attend via Zoom.

Weekly Polio update:
End Polio Now | Rotary District 5040


Greetings Polio Warriors:
WILD POLIO VIRUS TYPE 1 (WRV1) – We are addened to say that this last
week saw a new case of the Wild PolioVirus Type 1 reported in
Afghanistan, with the onset of paralysis occurring on 14 January, 2022 in
the Province of Patkita, which shares it's Eastern border with neighboring
TWENTY-SEVEN - The number of days since the last case of WPV1
occurred in Afghanistan.
ONE YEAR & 13 DAYS - The number of days since the last case of
WPV1 occurred in Pakistan.
ONE - The total number of cases of WPV1 that has occurred in 2022, year-
FIVE - The total number of cases of WPV1 that occurred in 2021.
ONE HUNDRED AND FORTY - The total number of cases of WPV1 that
occurred in 2020.
The good news is that there were no new cases of wild polio Positive
Environmental Samples (ES) reported. So the total count of wild ES for
2022 remains at zero. The last ES reported was discovered in Pakistan on
December 6, 2021.
Sadly, this week, we have to forego our "Happy Dance" in deference to the
poor little one who is the latest victim of the Wild PolioVirus ©. We can only hope that they are the last victim.

As you are aware, our Club sponsored the Rotary Satellite Club of Southern Utah Veterans.

We are happy to see members of their club joining us from time to time and hope perhaps some of you would like to attend a meeting with them.  

They meet on the 2nd Thursday of the month at 5:30 at the Elks Lodge.



Thanks Veterans Club for your service!
