On October 22, over 470 guests attended our 14th Annual Wine Fest.

World Polio Day was established by Rotary International over a decade ago to commemorate the birth of Jonas Salk, who led the first team to develop a vaccine against poliomyelitis. Use of this inactivated poliovirus vaccine and subsequent widespread use of the oral poliovirus, developed by Albert Sabin, led to the establishment of the Global Polio Eradication Initiative (GPEI) in 1988. As of 2013, GPEI had reduced polio worldwide by 99%.
On Monday, we had a visit from District Governor Vern Nielsen.  Rotary International is organized into geographic "Districts."  Ours has 60 clubs ranging from Clearwater, BC, down across the US border to Prosser, Washington.   Each year, a new District Governor is appointed, and this year ours is Vern, from Kelowna.
We had a great presentation from Dr. Richard Currie, who worked several years with Medicins Sans Frontieres (Doctors without Borders) - in Ethiopia, Kenya, Central African Republic and Peru.  His topic was International Development in Today's World.
Our President Ross and his wife Fiona were guests of the Rotary Club of Deer Park, Washington in mid August where Ross spoke of his experience as a polio survivor.
In July this year, judges from the Communities in Bloom project visited Salmon Arm.  Representatives from all three Salmon Arm Clubs were on hand for the event.
