Hamilton recognized for polio efforts


Local Rotarian Roy Hamilton accepts a "Changemaker" award from Rotary District 5060 Governor Sherry Chamberlain Wednesday at the club's meeting at Siam Palace for his outstanding and continual contributions to Rotary efforts and causes, including a recent gift in the name of his late wife, Donna Hamilton, toward eliminating polio. Hamilton took the opportunity to remind the club that donations toward that cause right now at are matched twice by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, a partner in the global effort that is nearly won, but would be reversed if the goal is not met. Donna Hamilton had suffered from polio early in life, and had been dependent on an iron lung to breathe. - Scott Hunter photo
