Rich Harper, president of the Dover Capital City Rotary Club’s polio campaign, presented a $100 check to Ted Henderson, president of the Dover Capital City Rotary Club, as a contribution toward the club’s efforts in Rotary International’s polio eradication campaign at the club’s Oct. 26 weekly luncheon meeting at Maple Dale Country Club in Dover.

The presentation was in conjunction with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation’s announcement on Oct. 24, World Polio Day, that polio is on the verge of being wiped off the face of the planet by the end of 2017.

At the same Oct. 26 meeting, the Capital City Rotary Club welcomed Dr. Esosa Iriowen, assistant professor of chemistry at Delaware State University, as the club’s newest member. Iriowen is a fellow of the American Institute of Chemists and holds four degrees from Nigeria, Sweden and U.S. He is married to Dr. Rosemary Iriowen, and they have two children. He and his family have lived in Dover since 2008.

Dover Capital City Rotary meets for lunch each Thursday at Maple Dale Country Club, 180 Mapledale Road, Dover.
