Amy Luckiewicz from the District was the speaker.  She spoke about the status of the efforts to eradicate the disease of Polio, informing us that there were only three countries where the disease was still active.  Those countries are Pakistan, Nigeria and Afghanistan.  However, she also reported the reported cases of Polio this year are on the rise. 
Amy then spoke about the Polar Plunge scheduled for February 29, 2020.  This will be the 10th year of the Plunge and so far it has raised $814,952.81.  The goal is to reach $1,000,000.00.  Amy offered a variety of suggestions on how to raise money for the Plunge and she introduced Matt Ingram who will be the point person in our Club for the fundraising effort.  Our goal has been established at $1,500.00.
