Wimpy's Weekly Waffle!

I attended the Presidents meeting for Area 10 on Thursday night and a couple of items did come up, members should have a look at E learning as this can be a valuable to Tailem Bend are keen to have an involvement with youth exchange, Stirling have a small acreage field day coming up, Onkaparinga are looking at setting up a satellite club in the APY lands. The convention in Melbourne 27-31 May 2023 also got a mention. As in the past it was suggested that we all clubs in Area 10 create an Area Community project and I will be asking members if they have any thoughts regarding this over the coming month. It was a good opportunity to see what other clubs have done or intend to and to catch up with our Presidents in our area.
In this edition of Down Under I would like you all to read articles on pages 38 and 44 .
I would like to inform members that our meeting on the 26th July will now be at the Indian restaurant the Bombay Beat as the golf club have a busy week with their ladies tournament. I would like to have an indication as to how many members will be attending as not to have to many seats booked.

End Polio Now

In 1985 Rotary launched PolioPlus to immunize every child in the world against polio. Working with our partners and members of the global health community, together we will end polio.
Through the science of vaccines, Rotary & partners have saved nearly 19 million children from becoming paralyzed by polio. Learn more about our work to End Polio Now and how you can get involved: https://on.rotary.org/3eqtrrr

Rotary has been working to eradicate polio for more than 35 years, and we’ve made incredible progress in the fight to rid the world of it forever.

As a founding partner of the Global Polio Eradication Initiative, we've helped to reduced polio cases by more than 99.9 percent.

It’s crucial to eradicate polio from the last two countries where it remains endemic and to keep other countries polio-free.

If all eradication efforts stopped today, within 10 years, polio could paralyze as many as 200,000 children each year.

What is polio?

Polio, or poliomyelitis, is a paralyzing and potentially deadly infectious disease that most commonly affects children under the age of 5. The virus spreads from person to person, typically through contaminated water. It can then attack the nervous system.
