On Saturday, April 2, three Reading Rotarians joined hundreds of others in District 7930 to at the Polar Plunge to end Polio.  John Douglass, Mike Bonsey and Peter Majane all dunked at Long Beach on the Gloucester/Rockport line.  Also, there to support our Plungers were Allain Collins, Phil Stewart, Gina and Mike Nelson, Tim and Chris Kelley, Mike Collins and Laurie Douglass with two energetic dogs.
It was a lot of fun to participate in such a large event with so many Rotarians.  Kudos to Gloucester Rotary for organizing the event.  
Donations will continue to be gratefully accepted at this link.  Please be sure to designate "Polio Fund."
At last report from DG Terry, Reading was 5th in the District for money raised.  Thank you to John, Mike and Peter.  And thank you to all who have supported this fundraiser in any way.  The District goal is to raise $100,000.  Last count had the District total north of $40,000.00.  The Gates Foundation will double match all contributions.  Your $25 donation will result in $75 with the match to the Rotary Foundation.
