Our fellow Rotarians in the Niskayuna club have issued an invitation to join them at their “All American Party to End Polio.”
The event will begin at 4 p.m. next Saturday, August 20, at Beukendaal Fire Department, 501 Sacandaga Road, Glenville. The concert will feature the Jon Stickley Trio, a bluegrass/jazz group from Asheville, NC, currently on a Northeast tour. Rotary fellowship will begin at 4 p.m. with dinner and the concert will follow, to end about 8 p.m..
The price to attend is just $20 per person ($35 per couple) and includes the concert plus hot dogs, burgers, salad, soft drinks and water. You can purchase tickets online on the district website. If you are unable to attend, you can make a donation on the website to Rotary’s polio eradication efforts. All profits will go to that campaign.
Many food items are being donated by local merchants, which will help us toward our goal of raising $1,000, which will then receive a 2-for-1 match from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation — a total of $3,000, enough to pay for immunizations for about 5,000 children.
