Toronto East Rotary News
Last Thursday, Toronto East Rotary Club presented Paul Harris Fellow awards to seven worthy recipients.  Each has shown an outstanding level of community service and, in the spirit of Rotary, "Service Above Self".  Pictured below are Tiffany Boxx accepting for Rod Cohen (Blake Boultbee Outreach Youth Services), Kerry Bowser (Eastview Neighbourhood Community Centre), Susan Baker (Riverdale Share Community Association), Clarisse Tatro (Glen Rhodes Food Bank), Alicia Dellagrazie (Bethany Baptist Food Bank), Gloria McPherson (Eastminster Out of the Cold Program), Joanne Green (Opportunity for Advancement).  More pictures from the event can be found here.

Last week our speaker was Lindsay Oughtred, Executive Director of Kids Up Front.  Kids Up Front provides youth services/experiences for social service organizations and healthcare organizations throughout Toronto. They distribute tickets to arts, culture and sporting events to deserving kids and their families through its many programs such as “Can’t Use Your Ticket”, “Give A Kid A Game”, “Take Me Out To The Ballgame” as well as Access/Pass Programs at the AGO, ROM and Ontario Science Centre.  Thank you Lindsay for telling us about your group!
Recently, Marvin Prashad told us his inspiring story. As a teen he fled the United States in search of a way out of poverty with criminal elements trying to pull him down. Marvin told us of his journey from abuse and poverty to successful business owner and through strength, determination and iron will, he built a life for himself in Toronto against all odds. Today Marvin is husband, father and the owner, operator and head instructor at Dragonz Martial Arts Studio and an active member of the East Toronto Community. Thank you for sharing!

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!
