Comments from our guests and members

Members and guests attending our weekly meetings are very important to us. Based on your comments we are able to produce many more educational, inspiring and entertaining weekly meetings.

Following are some of the comments we have received. Would you please send us your comments?   

Amazing story about Polio. I agree with Kitty, that this should be shared by all Rotarians.
-- Elly Contreras, E-Club of Canada One, District 5370

Jon describes the migrant trail through his journey of photography. The migrant trail is close to his heart since his own family roots migrated from Europe, all starting during the Nazi regime. Jon's family was and is Jewish. His grandfather had to have his appendix removed on his own kitchen table in 1939 because no hospital would perform surgery or treat a Jew. This led to him sending his children to England and away from the suppression.

Therefore his understanding of migrant central Americans is real to him and his understanding of how people will ultimately search for a better way of life to avoid harsh brutal conditions that thy or a loved can suffer in a split second.
-- Michael Thomas, Rotary Club of Stony Plain, District 5370

The migrant trail. Every North American needs to watch this Ted talk. The migrants don’t want to leave their country. If we who live in more affluent cultures would help these people with basic needs - education, shelter and safety - they would choose to stay!
-- Vicki Horsfield, E-Club of Canada One, District 5370

Jon Lowenstein.  I enjoy the mix of ideas that you present from the serious stories like Jon’s of the migrant trail and the background on vaccination, lightened by a little humour and great guitar playing.  Thanks.
-- Graham Drake, RC of Calgary Heritage Park, District 5360

New cases of polio linked to the oral vaccine have been reported in four African countries and more children are now being paralysed by vaccine-derived viruses than those infected by viruses in the wild, according to global health numbers.

The World Health Organization (WHO) and partners identified nine new cases caused by the vaccine in Nigeria, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Central African Republic and Angola last week. Along with seven other African countries with outbreaks, cases have also been reported in Asia. In Afghanistan and Pakistan polio remains endemic, and in Pakistan officials have been accused of covering up vaccine-related cases.
