Rotary is very close to completing a project begun in 1988 – the eradication of Polio worldwide.  There are only three countries left that are not yet polio free.  In support of World Polio Day, the Walworth Fontana Rotary Foundation (Geneva Lake West Rotary Club) is requesting your financial help in achieving this goal.  The Gates Foundation is matching donations 2 to 1, so every dollar is magnified.
Rotarian, Don Vandello, is heading this drive.  “ We originally intended to create a fundraising event to highlight this cause, but Covid-19 has interfered with any social gathering, so we are trying to go virtual with this request.  Both I and my wife are polio survivors from ages 9mos, and two years old.  We truly understand what this disease can do, are proud to be a part of an organization like Rotary, with the global reach to defeat polio once and for all.  I am asking all of my fellow Rotarians, friends, and family, to spread the word.  We will post this on our Website and on Facebook. If we can all share these posts on our social media, it would be a  great help.”
Donations can be made to:
Walworth Fontana Rotary Foundation
PO Box 368
Walworth, WI. 53184
Or on our website, use the “Donate” button at the top of the home page.
Thanks in advance for your help.
Freedom for Girls 2020 
You may or may not be aware of the Freedom for Girls program that is hosted by Pat and Steve Werner.  Steve is a long time Rotarian and he and his wife have been fundraising for this program for years.
I have attached the letter that they send out every year and also a link to their Facebook page where you can find more information about this important cause.
The Geneva Lake West Rotary Club makes an annual donation to this program but you can make your own donations to this organization, if you would like.  Donate HERE (send us an email that it is to be allocated to FFG)
We just wanted to share the information and let you know what other Rotarians are passionate about.
Thank you,
Heidi L. Alten, ​Secretary
