October 24 – National Polio Day Ridgefield Rotary Recognized For End Polio Campaign

Polio is paralyzing and potentially fatal disease that still threatens children
in some parts of the world. Polio is incurable, but completely vaccine-preventable.
In 1985, Rotary launched its PolioPlus program, the first initiative to tackle
global polio eradication through the mass vaccination of children.

On April 13, 2018 Ridgefield Rotary teamed up with Tommy James & The Shondells
to have an End Polio Now Concert. The event was a huge success as a sold out crowd
of 500 attended the concert at the Ridgefield Playhouse. Thanks to concert goers,
25 sponsors and local businesses over $225,000 was raised.

On National Polio Day on October 24, First Selectman Rudy Marconi and members of Ridgefield Rotary hung a plaque in Town Hall commemorating the Town Of Ridgefield’s effort through Rotary which resulted in the tremendous contribution toward the “International Eradicate Polio Initiative”.
