Birthday Matching Pledge

Our Executive Producer and Rotary District 7620 DG, Ken Solow, is celebrating his birthday today. What can you get a man that already has a brand new (mostly) completed kitchen, more Marriott Points than anyone can count, and a fine Buick LaCrosse? Donate to his favorite District Governor project! AND Ken’s so keen to celebrate his birthday this way, he’s going to MATCH all donations during his birthday weekend, up to $5000!


Lets all raise a toast of Coors Light to Ken Solow… Happy Birthday! May this be the beginning of another year full of love, laughter, and fabulous adventures!


First Interview with John Sever

Producers spoke with John for nearly two hours last night, covering a wide range of topics including:

How polio is spread

The fear that existed before a vaccine

Why Rotary was well-suited to take on the polio challenge

The first test-case locations

Our favorite story was about the time they used ice cream trucks in Mexico to transport the vaccine to remote villages.
