    On Oct. 24, members of the Rotary Club of Orinda, (L-R) Sylvia Hua, Susan Farmer, Rodney Lal, John Donnelly, and Yenjean Hwang, and back row (L-R) Ally Fattore (Rotarian and board member of Orinda Chamber of Commerce), Amy Worth (Orinda City Councilmember) and Mike McGill (board member of Orinda Chamber of Commerce), met at the newly relocated Nation’s to raise awareness through a proclamation with City of Orinda as part of Rotary International’s mission to eradicate the crippling childhood disease to end polio now. During the Orinda City Council meeting on Nov. 1, Orinda Mayor Dennis Fay declared a Proclamation making Oct. 24, World Polio Day in the City of Orinda and encouraged all citizens to join him and Rotary International in the fight for a polio-free world. The Rotary Club of Orinda has been a proud part of Orinda, Lamorinda, the East Bay and Rotary International for almost 75 years and their work improves lives at both the local and international levels – from helping families in need – to working toward a polio-free world.
