Stillwater students fighting polio

Students from Stillwater Elementary School participating in Mechanicville Rotary’s “Purple Pinkie Day” this week came up big in the fight against polio.

Their efforts raised enough money to provide 885 lifesaving vials of polio vaccine for children at risk in the still-endemic countries of Nigeria, Pakistan and Afghanistan.
