The 10 Rotary Clubs in Durham Region (and the Rotary Club of Port Hope ), on behalf of your co-hosts, the Rotary Clubs of Oshawa and Oshawa-Parkwood and Durham College invite you to District 7070's World Polio Day 2021 - Live from The Rotary Global Classroom at Durham College in Oshawa, Ontario Canada. The event will run from 7 pm to about 8:30 pm live from The Rotary Global Classroom featuring Dr Bob Scott,(past Rotary International Vice-President  and Immediate Past Chair of the Rotary International Polio Plus Committee ), Valarie Wafer, (Vice-President and Director of Rotary International) and Mike McGovern, (the current Chair of the Rotary International Polio Plus Committee). We are awaiting confirmation of additional senior Rotary International leaders as well. Together, they will update all of us about Rotary's efforts with our Global Polio Eradication initiative Partners to End Polio Now.........

With COVID-19 measures lifting ever so slightly, we are in the planning stages of District 7070's World Polio Day 2021 - Live from The Rotary Global Classroom at Durham College in Oshawa, Ontario Canada and anticipate that it will certainly be a hybrid event. We hope that each Club President  (Rotary and Rotaract) in District 7070 can attend. If the President cannot attend, you may want someone from your club to be able to see and participate in the live event.

We are asking Rotary and Rotaract Clubs in District 7070  to cancel the weekly meetings this week and instead, watch the livestream , with their spouses, as we broadcast from  the Rotary Global Classroom, in the Centre for Collaborative Education Building at Durham College, 2000 Simcoe St. N., Oshawa, ON, Canada L1G 0C5 . Many clubs have already cancelled their weekly meeting so that their members can watch. 

This livestream will be broadcast to all Rotary Clubs in District 7070, throughout Canada , and to the rest of the world. The link will be available soon . In addition , the event will be livestreamed to all of the colleges and universities worldwide on the Durham College Rotary Global Classroom Network.

You will also see Rotary International's 2021 World Polio Day video during our October 21 as we  broadcast it to the world , live from the Rotary Global Classroom.

In addition, you will be able to ask questions of the distinguished panel.

Stay tuned for the link to this District 7070 Live Event to tell the world that Rotary intends to End Polio Now. .

We ask that you tell every Rotarian and Rotaractor that you see to watch, in its entirety, starting at 7:00 pm

We will be providing the link in the next few weeks to everyone.
