Dave Buck wanted to get this message in front of as many Rotarians as possible - the deadline is approaching fast to participate in what might be the last Immunization event sponsored by the Indian Government.

Hello Fellow Rotarians,

We are thrilled to announce that we will be taking a group to India to participate in a National Polio Immunization Day this September.  Attached is a document that provides detailed information about this extraordinary trip and a means to join.   You can also find more information on our website:  www.HowardTours.net

Please feel free to share this information with the Rotarians and clubs in your District as soon as possible as the size of this group will be limited and confirmations in the program will be on a first come, first served basis.   We expect this trip to be filled within the next week or two. 

In 2015, India was declared polio free, and polio is now endemic in only two countries. As a result, there are fewer and fewer opportunities to participate in a NID worldwide.  This may be one of the last opportunities you will have to join a trip to participate in polio NID activities.

Trip Highlights:  We travel to Delhi, India to participate in the polio NID activities and attend other related Rotary events.  In addition, we travel to Agra to visit the Taj Mahal, and the magnificent Pink City of Jaipur to visit the famous Rotary Jaipur Limb factory.

Date of Departure:        Friday, September 09, 2022

Date of Return:             Tuesday, September 20, 2022

We look forward to traveling with you.

Please Note: The Indian Rotary leadership has stated that this is expect to be one of the last, if not the last, times that the Government will hold a National Polio Immunization program.
If you have always wanted to participate in an NID, this may be your last your opportunity for this experience.

Our journey will combine participation in India’s National Polio Immunization activities, interaction with local Rotary clubs and their projects while visiting some of India’s most extraordinary sights.
