To our Polio Echo Friends:


It is official, the Dissolution of Polio Echo is complete as of 9/16/2015.  However, the Polio Echo Support Group will continue to function as a unincorporated organization for the remainder of this year.  We will keep the website operational at least for the remainder of 2015.  The Chapters will hold Chapter meetings starting again in September.  We will maintain the Post Office Box for the rest of the 2015, also.

30th Anniversary Luncheon Meeting

We plan to hold our annual Winter Luncheon and 30th Anniversary Reunion on December 5th at The Ability 360 Center, formerly known as the Disability Empowerment Center (DEC), 5025 East Washington St., Phoenix, 85034.  The Luncheon is open to all polio survivors of Arizona by reservation only.  

Please RSVP by Monday, Nov. 30th, sending an email to  this website: or by signing up at: Click here to sign up on Google Forms Please let us know your name, your guest's name and how many will be in your party.  The meeting will be co-hosted by Arizona Spinal Cord Injury Association (AzSCIA). 

Following a brief welcome and opening prayer by Karen Spencer, a turkey lunch will be catered by Skarko's Catering. During our lunch an excellent nearby high school choir will serenade and lead us in Holiday Carols.  There will be ample time to reconnect and visit with old friends and hopefully some new faces, too.  

Thanks to Karen Halgren and Karen Spencer for these arrangements.
