February NID

District 5240 is putting together another team of Rotarians to India to participate in a NID (National Immunization Day) on February 24-25, 2013.

The trip will most likely start on February 19th and end around March 2nd.  Besides the activities on Feb. 24th, door to door immunization will be done over a few days starting on the 25th (we will do door to door only for 1 day).  This will entail some long hours and lots of walking (which means you need to be in good shape physically and mentally).

If you are interested, please contact me for additional information.
