My name is Elias Thomas. For more than fifteen years, I have represented the President of Rotary International at numerous events, most especially at Rotary District Conferences throughout the United States as well as in Canada, Mexico, and Iceland. I am an organizer for the Rotarians of the world for mission trips.
Since 2001, I have traveled to India each year to participate in various projects of Rotary International and The Rotary Foundation. My initial trip was as a member of a group of Rotarians from the United States. We were committed to serving the local population at a National Immunization Day (N.I.D.) - providing oral polio vaccine to all children below the age of five years.
