October 20, 2011

The Chamber Of Commerce met this morning sponsored by the Chickasaw Kiwanis Club with speaker David Beasley. David spoke about one of the prevalent diseases in third world nations: prenatal tetanus. When a mother-
to-be becomes exposed during her pregnancy, it is almost a certainty that her child will die some 7-14 days after birth in severe pain from lung infection.
Project "Eliminate" has been formed to fight this problem, but it is necessary to innoculate 6-1/2 million women at a cost of $1.80 per shot. That is a total
of over $1,170,000.00 and the Kiwanis hope to raise that amount over the next 8 months. Please consider a donation to the Kiwanis. Picture is David
