Do you know about Rotary Tulips?

see picture below
A group of Rotarians in Holland have developed the beautiful tulip in yellow and red to celebrate our END POLIO NOW efforts.
Vesseys is selling them and 20% of the sales will go to polio. They say that each box sold will raise enough money to protect 8 children.
 

The cost per box is $21.95 but if you buy above four boxes it is only $17.95 or $20.00 including tax. ( 25 bulbs per box) So the Sackville club is going to place the order for all our members to get the reduced price. We have gone to the town and asked if they would dedicate one of their flower Bed to a “END POLIO NOW tulip garden.” We have suggested they plant 75 tulips ,plus a few more, so that in 2020 we can celebrate the 75th anniversary of the United Nations in this manner.

 

 

I share this with you because other clubs may be inspired to do something similar. We will plant the tulips this Oct 24, 2019 - Polio day and United Nations Day. It is a very simple and easy thing to do! Can you get this out to others. Maybe your communities could do this?

 

Please help by getting the word out to other clubs. The tulips must be ordered this month.
