KECR members offered a warm welcome to the 2016-2017 District Governor Dennis McMann who attended the August 11th meeting with his wife Donna. He is a member of the Nashua West Rotary Club, Nashua, NH. 
Dennis is a passionate leader within RI and has been involved in humanitarian projects all over the world. He described one aid trip where he and Donna administered polio vaccinations with a group to over 10,000 children and adults. As a polio survivor, and one who lives with post-polio syndrome, he has a personal interest in eradicating this terrible disease. Rotary International has championed this cause for decades and has helped to reduce its incidence by 99.9%. Learn more at https://www.rotary.org/myrotary/en/take-action/end-polio
