STMA Rotary Club is pleased to announce that Tim Mulcrone of  Rotary International’s PolioPlus program will be speaking at the April 21 Rotary meeting.  The meeting will take place at 7:30 a.m. in the Crow River Senior Center at the St. Michael City Center.  Visitors are welcome.

            In 1985, Rotary launched its PolioPlus program, the first initiative to tackle global polio eradication through the mass vaccination of children. Rotary has contributed more than $1.3 billion and countless volunteer hours to immunize more than 2.5 billion children in 122 countries. In addition, Rotary’s advocacy efforts have played a role in decisions by donor governments to contribute more than $9 billion to the effort.
