Council recognizes World Polio Day in city

RON HARRIS, DAILY MOUNTAIN EAGLE
Wednesday, October 16, 2019

A proclamation was presented Tuesday morning in honor of World Polio Day, which will be recognized Thursday, Oct. 24, in the city.

Mayor David O’Mary presented the proclamation to members of the Rotary Club of Jasper.

The proclamation said Rotary launched PolioPlus in 1985, and in 1988 helped establish the Global Polio Eradication Initiative — which includes the World Health Organization, U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, UNICEF and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation — to immunize children around the world against polio.

The proclamation went on to state that “polio cases have dropped by 99.9 percent since 1989, and the world stands on the threshold of eradicting the disease …” and that “Rotary has contributed more than $1.9 billion and countless volunteer hours to protecting more than 2.5 billion children in 122 countries.”

Rotary Club member Holly Trawick told council members that a 0.5K Walk for Polio will be held Oct. 24 beginning at 5:30 p.m. The walk will take place between Tallulah Brewing Company and Twisted Barley Brewing Company. 

"It is pick whichever point you want to start at, and then walk over to the other one. The Cigar Box will even have chairs set up if someone needs to take a break," Trawick said. "This is meant to be a fun event that simply raises awareness and some funds."

The event will be $15 to enter, which includes a ticket for a free drink from either brewery and a gift from The Cigar Box.
