On Saturday, April 20 Lakewood Foothills Rotary members, along with Rotarians from other clubs, will be volunteering at the 9HealthFair site at the Denver Indian Center. This is part of an ongoing partnership between the five Rotary Clubs and the Denver Indian Center.
To All Members of District 5450
DG Mike asked you to Text to 90999 the word polio in the Subject line to make a $5 donation in honor of Rotary International’s 108th birthday. When the confirmation email comes back, reply yes. The $5 charge will appear on your phone bill.
If you prefer not to text, donate any amount through your club, or on the www.rotary.org website under Member Access.
Then, please reach out to your friends and associates and ask them to text for polio. As an alternative to texting, non-Rotarians can go to www.endpolio.com to learn about polio and donate any amount. Tell them to mention your club name and your club will get credit. They will receive a thank you on line.
Thanks for helping our District celebrate Rotary International’s birthday with a nice donation to PolioPlus. YTD there have only been 2 paralytic cases worldwide but it still costs $1B/year to inoculate millions of children. Polio will be the 2nd disease to have been eradicated by man, and Rotary started the campaign to get it done!!!

Subject: Rotary-Denver Indian Center Work DayDear
Workers at the DIC Work Day,
Thank you for participating in yesterday’s workday at the Denver Indian Center. Your diligence and hard work enabled us to complete all of our project as planned and earlier than anticipated. Most importantly we partnered with the DIC to get the Montessori Pre School installed. We all look forward to seeing it in operation in the future.
I express the thanks of everyone on the American Indian Committee, to participating Rotarians and community members who helped. We also extend our thanks to the Denver Indian Center folks including Jay, Payton, and Shannon for their assistance with the project, and to Edwin and Rose for a wonderful breakfast set up and great lunch.
