World Polio Day was honoured and celebrated at the Whistler Museum as Mayor Jack Crompton, Whister Rotarian, read the declaration to our meeting. Following this Polio Plus Chairperson for area 5040 Brian Finley gave a presentation and spoke about the world situation, up to date statistics and where we are going with Rotary International and Polio Plus. the evening was very moving and left us with plans to collaborate and join with other Rotary Clubs in our District to do additional fundraising for World Polio. Method of donations was reviewed.

A discussion on sponsoring Whistler Scouts enthusiastically followed. Shown in picture on the right: Mayor jack Crompton 2nd from right, Brian Finley, chair of  District 5040 Polio Plus on the right, left Murray Wood, Assistant District Governor and President Janice Lloyd, 2nd from left.
