Rotary Moment:
Vicente told us that Europe has been polio free since 2002, but last year there were 2 cases in Ukraine and they also found polio viruses in the sewage system in Brazil. For this reason the polio plus program has 124 labs all over the world to monitor for polio virus.
1) last reminder to collect any outstanding hoopathon pledges.
2) No meeting next Wednesday.
Guest Speaker -   Our guest speaker today was Tim Readman, he is the executive director of the Stroke Recovery Association of BC. He graduated from the University of Northumbria, England, as an occupational therapist. Tim is also a professional musician, singer, producer and music journalist.
The Stroke Recovery Association of BC (SRABC) is a non-profit organization. They have been offering information and programs for stroke survivors, after they leave hospital since 1979.
Some of the highlights of his presentation were:
  • They currently have 29 branches across BC.
  • There has been a spike in strokes for the 30 to 50 age group. Possibly due to a sedentary lifestyle.
  • Make sure you check out their website:
