Brenton Nicholson - 20 Years of Service

Rotarian Brenton Nicholson was presented a Certificate celebrating Twenty Years of Service to the Rotary Club of Murray Bridge and Rotary International in lieu of him not being able to attend the Rotary Change Over Dinner on Saturday Night. He has been a valued member, serving on the Board as Treasurer from 2002/3 till 2019. His Vocational Classification has been Horse Husbandry. He has brought a variety of skill sets to the club acting as Sergeant particularly creatively and in an entertaining way with superb wit. On one particular memorable occasion at the 2007 Changeover night he produced a play with fellow sergeant Garry March which had the audience in tears of laughter. He has also served on the Vocational Committee in 2001/2. Well done Brenton seen here with President Simon Sickerdick and Secretary Jenny Alexander-Walters.

End Polio Now

In 1985 Rotary launched PolioPlus to immunize every child in the world against polio. Working with our partners and members of the global health community, together we will end polio.
Through the science of vaccines, Rotary & partners have saved nearly 19 million children from becoming paralyzed by polio. Learn more about our work to End Polio Now and how you can get involved: https://on.rotary.org/3eqtrrr

Rotary has been working to eradicate polio for more than 35 years, and we’ve made incredible progress in the fight to rid the world of it forever.

As a founding partner of the Global Polio Eradication Initiative, we've helped to reduced polio cases by more than 99.9 percent.

It’s crucial to eradicate polio from the last two countries where it remains endemic and to keep other countries polio-free.

If all eradication efforts stopped today, within 10 years, polio could paralyze as many as 200,000 children each year.

What is polio?

Polio, or poliomyelitis, is a paralyzing and potentially deadly infectious disease that most commonly affects children under the age of 5. The virus spreads from person to person, typically through contaminated water. It can then attack the nervous system.
