Toronto East Rotary News
Thank you to Karen Somerville, Al Munn, Virginia O'Reilly, Bev Phelan, Alex Harrison and Navraj Dhaliwal for their efforts planting trees today at Sunnybrook Hospital. We worked with other District Rotarians in conjunction with the Highway of Heroes Tribute and together we planted 270 trees on the hospital grounds.

Be sure to register ASAP for this "hands-on" project.

Join your fellow Rotarians in District 7070 as People of Action and help fulfill Rotary International President Ian Riseley's wish that Rotarians plant 1.2 million trees in 2017-18. We're invited to plant trees on April 22 from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at Sunnybrook Health and Sciences Centre & Veterans Care Facility, 2075 Bayview Avenue, Toronto. 

When: Sunday April 22, from 10 am to 1 pm - Arrive by 9:45 a.m. Ceremony at 10 sharp!

Where: Sunnybrook Health and Sciences Centre & Veterans Care Facility, 2075 Bayview Avenue, Toronto.

Why: Environmental sustainability is a key theme to this Rotary year. Rotary International President Ian Riseley issued a challenge for Rotarians to plant 1.2 million trees, one tree for each Rotarian.

This is a reminder to TERC members that there will be no lunch meeting April 19. In its place, we will be hosting our special dinner meeting at Pappas Grill. Dinner will begin at 6:30 p.m. and attendance is restricted to those having reserved a place.  Lunch meetings resume on April 26th.
There's always a lot going on at Toronto East Rotary.

Polio Anywhere is a Risk to Children Everywhere

Polio cases have declined rapidly since 1985, but the fight isn't over. Polio is a crippling and potentially fatal infectious disease, and for as little as $0.60, a child can be protected against the virus for life. If we don't finish the fight right now, more than 10 million children under the age of five could be paralyzed by polio in the next 40 years.
 
Since the global initiative began more than 30 years ago, Rotary and its partners have reduced polio cases by more than 99 percent worldwide. There are only two countries where the wild polio virus has never been stopped: Afghanistan and Pakistan.

It’s Achievable: 

There is no cure for polio, but the polio vaccine successfully prevents cases.

End Polio Now!
