Six kids under the age of 10 have been diagnosed with polio-like illness in Minnesota since September. The MN Dept of Health informed the disease, which primarily affects young children, is extremely rare with the first outbreak reported in August 2014 in the USA. By the end of that year, at least 120 patients had been diagnosed across 34 states, as CNN reported recently.  Yesterday another 10 cases were reported in Illinois.  We should continue contributing and making our best efforts to eradicate this terrible disease that cripple mainly children.


During our October 16 meeting we received a detailed report from the organization “Pisadas de Amor” on the use of the donation they received from our Club. We appreciate their report; they are realizing an extraordinary job.
