Dear Presidents & District Leaders

 

On the day we celebrate the 105th Anniversary of Rotary, I am very pleased to inform you that a bill board with the word END POLIO NOW? has been hoisted at Queen’s Road Central.  Our District is joining many countries in the world to send out the important message:  End Polio Now.  Three words which represent Rotary’s pledge to eradicate polio from the face of the earth.

The bill board of 5.79m (W) x 24.94 m (H) is now on display for 1 month from 23 February to 22 March 2010 at the Silver Fortune Plaza besides Entertainment Building facing Queen’s Road Central, the busiest street in Central.  You will be able to see this attractive bill board at the junction of Pedder Street and Queen’s Road Central (facing Marks & Spencer).

This is one of our efforts to make more people aware of Rotary’s movement in Hong Kong, I would like to take this opportunity to thank the PR Committee for their hard work in getting this dramatic bill board hoisted in this very prime location.  

Last but not least, I would like to thank all Rotarians in our District for their great endeavor in supporting the US$200 million Challenge to end polio.  Since the launch of polio plus challenge in December 2007, our District has raised a total of USD330,960.  For this Rotary year, from July 2009 until now, our District has contributed over USD152,000 (including USD30,000 raised from 10K Rotary race) to the polio eradication.  Apart from the fundraising effort, the participation of 34 Rotarians from our District to the National Immunization Day in India in early January this year also demonstrated our District’s commitment to the Global Polio Eradication Initiative.

Let us continue to do good in the World because The Future of Rotary Is in Your Hands.

 

Yours in Rotary
