This Thursday if your looking for inspiration, look no further than your Marlborough Rotary club. Polio has been a challenge for Rotary for years. Humans erradicated small pox and one man in 1985 took on the challenge to wipe polio from the face of the earth. This is a disease that lives with someone for their entire life. Be inspired to do the impossible!
Last Thursday the Marlborough Rotary club was visited by the NEADS (Assistance Dogs for Deaf and Disabled Americans). Christina Rossetti visited the club with four dogs who are in the process of being trained to help combat veterans, disabled Americans and the deaf. The program places specially screened dogs within the prison system to be trained by inmates for a period of time. On weekends the dogs go home with weekend families to get more socialized training. After a rigourous training program and repeat screenings the dogs are placed with the person whose need is best fit by the dog.
