Arthur Monte - Polio Survivor
Arthur Monte contracted Polio at age nine months – he is now 65 years old and is considered one of the last Americans to have contracted this disease that Rotary International is dedicated to eradicating.
 
Those who know Art say he has led an exemplary life and has not allowed his disability to keep him from enjoying activities that interested him.  As his brother Frank put it “it never stopped him, he pitched softball, went skiing, swam and tried everything over his 65 years”.,
 
As he gots older, Art has become very dependent on his car and scooter.  The car has 240,000 miles on it and is not going to make it much further, according to his mechanic.  Plus, the new vehicle will need to be fitted with a lift.  Art needs financial assistance to make this happen.,  
 
Art's community began a fund-raising campaign to help Art Monte remain mobile and self-sufficient as long as possible. Incidentally, Art was a Poster Child for the March of Dimes campaign promoting Polio vaccinations in the early 1950's.   
 
Rotarian Tom Budd presented Art's case to the Rotary Club of Woodbury and offered be the club's representative helping Art reach his goal. The club pledged $500, and Tom prepared a letter to be sent to all the clubs in District 7505 to join our effort. 
 
Tom’s campaign was a complete success. District 7505 raised an additional $3000 Dollars and combined with Art's community efforts Art now has the auto pictured above. Art's new car is now being equipt with apparatus to make it fully functional to his needs.
