    • "The 2017 Rotary International Convention was held in Atlanta, Georgia, with 42,100 members from 174 countries attending.  The main focus was continuing the many projects funded by the Rotary Foundation including Polio Plus, the polio eradication project.  Rotary is headed toward the finish line in this successful project.  It was reported that there are only 10 cases of polio worldwide.  The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation has agreed to extend and increase their financial commitment to stamping out polio, and will match Rotary's donations on a two-for-one basis over the next two years in order to raise $6 million.  Attending the convention from Circleville were Gary Dean (President-elect Circleville Rotary Club), Stan Summers (President of Circleville Sunrise Rotary), Gwen Wolford, & Mary Jane Dean.
