Members of the Newcastle Rotary Valerie Comeau, Stacey Sutherland and Karen Howe and Rotary exchange student Clara Tremosa visited with the students and teachers of the Max Aitken Academy this morning with the purpose of educating children, teachers and parents in understanding the ongoing threat of polio. Purple Pinkies was aimed at teaching children the facts about polio and raising funds for vaccine. Each student had the opportunity to have their pinkie painted purple, the symbol used to identify a child in an endemic country who has received the lifesaving vaccine. Thank you to the students and teachers that helped raise funds for vaccines that will help eradicate Polio to zero!!

Thanks to Max Aitken!

this is a great initiative..

Over thirty years ago Rotary International made a promise to the children of the world to eradicate polio.  This dreadful disease has killed millions and disabled millions more. In 2004, the Mechanicville Rotary Club initiated an educational program at area schools to help children and parents in understanding the ongoing threat of polio.  Purple Pinkies was aimed at teaching children the facts about polio and raising funds for vaccine. On Thursday morning the Newcastle Rotary will be at the Max Aitken School to continue this vital education.

This week was busy for the Newcastle Rotary Club. The evening before our Purse Auction, several members attended a fund-raiser in support of Anglophone Norths Rwanda 2020 trip. A club contribution of $1500 added to the personal charge of each of the ten who attended, allowed us to provide a Silver sponsorship to this rewarding venture. Guest of honour for the event was Gen.(ret) Romeo Dallaire, who gave a captivating and passionate talk about the need to prevent children being used as child soldiers, and how the connectivity of the future generation can play a role in communication. The Rwanda 2020 trip is a partnership between Interact clubs here and in Rwanda, the purpose being to teach and reinforce volunteerism among our youth.
