WHEELS OF HOPE,” OUR WHEELCHAIR RECYCLING PROJECT: We have picked up 24 wheelchairs towards our goal of 50 for the year. PV Rotary is working with Joni and Friends to collect, refurbish and deliver wheelchairs to other countries. Please let your friends and neighbors know of our effort. If you have a non-electric wheel chair that is no longer needed, it may be dropped off at Physical Therapy Services, 715 Newark Pompton Tpk., Pompton Plains, New Jersey 07444. Contact: Eric Jackowsky 973-835-6115. If you need Pequannock Valley Rotary to pick it up, please contact: DougCook123@optonline.net 973-809-1502 Some living alone do not feel comfortable in having strangers come to their homes, so Erick will arrange for one of the women from his office to make the pickup!

Hall of Fame singer Donovan becomes a Rotary polio ambassador
Legendary singer and polio survivor Donovan Leitch, better known simply as Donovan, has joined Rotary in its fight to eradicate the paralyzing disease that afflicted him during much of his childhood. Donovan contracted polio at age three in Glasgow, Scotland. The disease weakened his right leg and left it thinner and shorter than the other. Confined to his bed for much of his childhood, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame singer said his father would read him poetry. In a recent interview with the Daily Express, Donovan said that listening to poetry piqued his interest in creative writing. “If I...
World Polio Day toolkit available — start planning now
Rotary's fourth World Polio Day celebration, on 24 October, will highlight extraordinary progress in the eradication campaign and emphasize the work that remains before we wipe out the virus for good. With the number of new cases worldwide nearly halved from this time last year, we have the opportunity to rally our resources and see the last case of polio this year. Health officials and Rotary's celebrity polio ambassadors will head to Atlanta, Georgia, USA, for the event, the first to be held at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). It will be streamed live and then will...
Young member uses leadership positions to promote diversity, inclusion
The way Rotary member Todd Jenkins puts it, he's the first generation in his family "to do everything": first to go to college, first to fly on a plane, first to visit another country, and the first to live across state lines. Jenkins, 28, grew up in a low-income neighborhood in Columbia, South Carolina, USA. His family worked hard just to make ends meet. So travel and college seemed out of reach. The eldest of ten children, Jenkins says his goal was to break out of the family status quo and set a positive example for his siblings. He credits his mother with helping him avoid falling into the...
Rotary recommits to ending polio in Nigeria
The World Health Organization has confirmed two cases of wild poliovirus type 1 (WPV1) in Nigeria, the first cases in the country since July 2014. After passing a year without a case of the wild poliovirus, Nigeria was removed from the list of polio-endemic countries in September 2015. These cases – from two local government areas of Borno state – occurred in July 2016. The Government of Nigeria – in partnership with the Global Polio Eradication Initiative – will take immediate steps to respond quickly to the outbreak to prevent further spread of the disease. This response will include...
