See photos of the dramatic lighting of iconic landmarks around the world, arranged to celebrate Rotary's 107th anniversary and its commitment to eradicating polio.

Iconic landmarks around the world served as the backdrop for the End Polio Now message the week of 23 February in honor of Rotary's 107th anniversary. They included the Water and Power Development Authority building in Lahore, Pakistan, and Frere Hall in Karachi; the Roppongi Hills skyscraper in Tokyo; Federation Square in Melbourne, Australia; and City Hall in San Juan, Puerto Rico, among others.
