Polio Meeting - Shirley Griffin, polio survivor (see comments below)

Shirley R. Griffin is a Polio Survivor who has spent her life of Rotary service to supporting the efforts of The rotary Foundation to eradicate polio since joining the organization in 1995. As the wife of a physician, she understands the pluses and minuses of fighting disease and disabilities. She has served on the foundation committee of the Longview Rotary Club since joining the club and has led them to a position of district leadership in both gifts to the Annual Fund of The Rotary Foundation and continuous leadership in the districts Polio Plus fund raising. Her involvement in the foundation efforts of the club led to her service as one of their first female Club Presidents in 2006-2007. Following her year of service as Club President, she elevated her district involvement by agreeing to serve as District Polio Subcommittee Chair in 2008-2009. Her leadership brought about the largest increase in annual district giving and set the tone for our efforts in meeting the Polio Challenge by obtaining an increasing number of active giving clubs each year until we reached a point where all clubs were contributing to the Polio Plus effort. Shirley has now completed 20 years of service to the district Polio Subcommittee and has resumed the position as chair since finishing her year as District Governor in 2011-2012.
