Dare To Dream director, Ilana Bittner, visited with former Rotary International President, Cliff Dochterman yesterday, at his home near Berkeley, CA, where he shared his memories of the origins of Rotary’s campaign to eradicate Polio.
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!
Thank you, Raymond Raedy, and Frederick County Bank for your $3000 sponsorship.
Researchers are starting to flesh out the story, and we’re excited to share our first movie trailer.
Big thanks to the District 7620 Council of Governors for their $3000 sponsorship.

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.
