DG Bob Rogers
Official District Governor Visit

Rotary District 5130 Governor Bob Rogers will make his official visit to our club today.  Come to hear his vision and goals for the district and for our club.

Bob is a retired pilot with US Airways, a Sebastopol Rotarian since 2007, serving as president of the Rotary Club of Sebastopol in 2013-2014.  He is also a Polio survivor.  As you might imagine, Bob has been interested and committed to working with Rotary's programs to eliminate polio from the world.

Bob contracted polio at age 5 and was hospitalized for a brief period of time. With a great deal of therapy he was able to regain much of his function and now is able to walk without any assistive devices and only a hint of a limp, in which he takes some pride. It serves him as a reminder of the presence of polio and its devastating effects, and helps to open discussions with other people who may not be as familiar with the disease.
