Come and join the Rotary Club of Barboursville for a delicious pancake breakfast while also giving back to those in desperate need.
On Saturday, March 10, 2018 from 7:30am-10:30am the organization will host a Pancake Breakfast to benefit the Rotary’s campaign of ending the polio disease worldwide!
Nationally, Rotary, along with the organization’s partners, have reduced the number of polio cases by 99.9% worldwide since the project began in the Philippines in 1979 and Rotary’s official launch of its PolioPlus program in 1985. The poliovirus invades the nervous system and can cause total paralysis in a matter of hours. It can strike at any age but mainly affects children under five. Polio is incurable, but completely vaccine-preventable. Through Rotary International, more than 2.5 billion children have been immunized against polio in 122 countries, and Rotary has contributed more than $1.7 billion dollars as well as countless volunteer hours to the cause. The cost per child to be vaccinated against this horrible disease is as little as $.60.
The pancake breakfast will take place this Saturday, March 10, 2018 at the Barboursville Senior Citizen Center.
The Senior Center is located at 721 Central Avenue in downtown Barboursville. Cost per person is $5, which will in turn buy 8 doses of polio vaccine. Bring the family, invite your neighbor, tell a friend, let’s get as many people as we can to the Rotary Club of Barboursville’s Pancake breakfast and all do our part in seeing the world eradicated of polio once and for all.
