Rotarian of the Month
Kate McHugh of the Binghamton Breakfast Club is Rotarian of the Month for July for District 7170.  Kate is the incoming President and has been chair of the Club Student Exchange program for several years.  Kate's daughter Brittney, was an exchange student to Japan during the 2011/2012 Rotary year.  Brittney's experience was instrumental in attracting Kate to be a member of the Binghamton Breakfast Club.

Kate has also been instrumental in promoting Rotary and Youth Exchange to the community.  A half-page article appeared in the May 10 Press & Sun Bulletin describing the Youth program.  Kate has a nursing degree from SUNY Broome Community College and works as a nurse at United Methodist Homes.  She lives in Binghamton with her husband Dan and daughter Brittney.  Congratulations to Kate and the Binghamton Breakfast Club.

Foundation Minute for Week of July 25th
 
District Governor Peter Cardamone from District 7150 asked:   Is there any measurable danger to increased human transmission of poliovirus from the anti-vaccination movement in the US or elsewhere.
 
Rocky Jacobs, Polio Coordinator from Zone 33, answers:  There sure is….   The virus, as you know is carried in “waste.”   Our sanitation systems are pretty good …. But waste in creeks and streams while camping … pools when young’uns make a mistake etc. are just a couple of examples.    And with the very mobile populations we have in the world …  Until the disease is COMPLETELY eradicated, those not immunized could pick it up from carriers.  We have had outbreaks in Amish communities in the last 5 years in this country.  The possibility of outbreaks for those not immunized is the reason we are still very active in approximately 60 countries…..granted those countries do not have the water purification systems and sanitation systems we have, but if there is an opening, and the virus is present, it will take it.
 
We are so close – your donation to Polioplus is vital to eradicate this dreaded disease.  As Geoff Gull, Polio Coordinator for Zone 29 states, “On behalf of all of the children in the world who did NOT get Polio/--Thank you for all of your present and past support.
 
Thank you for your continuous support.
