Lee Scherwitz, our own club's certified sommelier, pours a taste of wine at the club's 5th Wednesday night out.  Sue Scherwitz is at his right hand and Jim Smith looks on. Lee provided professional descriptions for each taste he poured.  Members brought snacks to share.  A great time was had by all. Thanks to the White Pine Winery for allowing the use of their tasting room..

End Polio Now!
Alice Ford, our club's program chairperson, introduced a Ted Talk by Jennifer Jones on the state of polio eradication, our part in World Polio Eradication Day October, 24, 2019.  The video recounts how the Rotary clubs in the Philippines demonstrated that eradication was possible.  That projext lead Rotary International to form an alliance with the World Health Organization, Unicef, and the Gates Foundation to reduce the annual 350,000 cases to zero.  The effort has been 99.9% successful and is "this close" to completion with only two countries, Afganistan and Pakistan, with about 30 new cases this year.  You can watch the video at  https://youtu.be/28RMR8MnwDQ.
