From Batavia to Brantford, over 100 Rotarians from all over District 7090, attended a celebration of World Polio Day at Niagara Falls, Ontario.   The magnificent Niagara Falls was alight with the colours of Rotary in recognition of our world wide success in almost eradicating this disease.   At a short reception prior to lighting the falls, attendees were reminded of the cost of this success, with a short moment of silence in remembrance of those that lost their lives in this effort.  We are indeed "This Close" and looking forward to the day when the last 2 countries are Polio Free.  While the call to come participate in the lighting of the Falls was open to all 7090 clubs and Rotary supporters, a  big shout out to all the clubs in the Niagara region for getting this project done!
