Business First: Documenting final space shuttle missions let firm touch ‘the best part of America’

January 6, 2017

John Page and his team at Pagetech Ltd. have built an impressive resume in the live event and video production business, including Red, White and Boom! and Nationwide Children’s Hospital Columbus Marathon, but it was the opportunity to chronicle the end of the U.S. space shuttle program that’s closest to Page’s heart.

Working with aviation photographer Dennis Blela, Page and seven of his employees documented the final shuttle missions by Discovery, Endeavour and Atlantis in 2011.

The result is an eye-popping collection of photographs and videos that have been used in exhibits at the Smithsonian Institution’s National Air and Space Museum in Washington, D.C., Kennedy Space Center Visitors Complex in Titusville, Florida, San Diego Air & Space Museum, Museum of Flight in Seattle and the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum in New York City.

Rotary District #6690 End Polio Now Lighting

February 23, 2011

Rotary was instrumental in wiping out the disease in most of the world, but some parts of the world are still threatened by it.

Learn more here:

“Thanks to Rotary and its partners, the world has seen polio cases plummet by more than 99 percent, preventing five million instances of child paralysis and 250,000 deaths. When Rotary began its eradication work, polio infected more than 350,000 children annually. In 2009, fewer than 1,700 cases were reported worldwide.

But the polio cases represented by that final 1 percent are the most difficult and expensive to prevent. Challenges include geographic isolation, worker fatigue, armed conflict, and cultural barriers.
That’s why it’s so important to generate the funding needed to End Polio Now. To fail is to invite a polio resurgence that would condemn millions of children to lifelong paralysis in the years ahead.

The bottom line is this: As long as polio threatens even one child anywhere in the world, all children — wherever they live — remain at risk.”
