Rotarians Build Ramps for Seniors

Our second ramp pre build and build took place on Thursday and Saturday this week.

Those at the pre build were Greg Hallstrom, Tony Pino, Ed Robertson as well as Doug Rowley, NM Ramps Chairman, and Mr. Reyes with the City of Albuquerque Senior Affairs Department. The pre build took about 3 hours.

The on site ramp build began at 7:00 AM and was finished by 1:00 PM.

Those in attendance were Michael McCaffrey, Dick Wilkinson, Lance Ellis and son Darrin, Brad Sackett and son Scott, Greg Hallstrom, Ed Robertson, Doug Rowley and Mr. Reyes.

This project was a little more involved because an old ramp had to be demolished before we could install a new one.

It was a great day and everyone left the job site with a real sense of accomplishment and thankful that a grandmother’s life was going to improve because of the work.

Rotary Member Helps Fight Polio in India

During late January-early February, Rotary Del Sol Club member Dave Ring served as part of a Rotary delegation from the U. S. and Canada aiding Indian Rotarians in their annual Polio Eradication Week.  While India has been officially polio free since 2012, keeping the world's second most populous country that way requires major ongoing effort.  During his time there, Dave met with hundreds of Indian Rotarians, helped inoculate many precious infants, and enjoyed the side-benefit of visiting the Taj Mahal, one of this world's seven man-made wonders.  He'll be taking our club on a whirlwind remembrance of that trip this Thursday morning.

It's NOT the Ride to End pollo...that would be chicken! It's polio! My actual riding experience regarding the Ride to End poLLo, instead of polio would be more humorous if did not illustrate the problem we have keeping it on the world radar screen.
