Squamish celebrated its first Purple Polio Day October 24, 2013, which also marks World Polio Day. Many local businesses as well as elementary schools and the Montessori preschool participated by wearing purple and collecting coins. The District of Squamish held a Wear Purple Day and donated $5. Squamish Rotary accomplished our goal of raising awareness about this devastating disease as well as raising funds towards Polio Eradication.  Pictured are President Mike and Rotarians Ann and Carl raising awareness and collecting donations outside Squamish SaveOn Foods. To donate, go to www.endpolio.org, scroll down and click on the donate button.
