Several members of Rotary Clubs in Rock County will have a tale to tell when they return from a convention in New Orleans.

Beloit Rotary President Elect Tim Scholten says Microsoft founder Bill Gates Tuesday announced a $355 million dollar challenge pledge to aid in the fight against polio.

Scholten says Rotary International has been supporting eradication efforts since 1985, and has already dedicated $1 billion to the effort.
