Fredericton North Rotary Club recently launched its End Polio Now campaign with Fredericton Mayor Brad Woodside proclaiming October as “Rotary End Polio Now Month”. Under the co-chairmanship of Rotarians Sharon Sloat and John Bowles, the campaign involves fund raising and student education among area elementary schools. Eight local pharmacies also are displaying posters and specially designed collection boxes at check-out counters. Club members are also using the boxes to collect money from their places of business. CBC, CTV-TV and the Daily Gleaner (see attached pdf) have all covered the launch. After all the monies have been collected, I expect a further round of publicity.
