On October 24th, World Polio Day, Belleville Rotarians and friends of Rotary planted 675 tulips in 44 minutes at the Children of Hope parkette in the City of Belleville at Pinnacle Street and Station Street, apparently a record of feat and diligence.  World Polio Day addresses global health issues, a vital focus of Rotary's work in the world.  Rotary's Polio Plus initiative supports vital vaccination campaigns and health care infrastructure to keep communities healthy.  Next spring when we see the tulips beautifying our local area, we will think about the work that Rotary does here and abroad and their focus to eradicate polio everywhere.....and they are 99% there!
