NEXT MEETING: August 2, 2019
WASH in Schools: Honduras Project
Susan Cohen Grossman, International Service Chair of the Concord Rotary Club, will explain an ambitious international project in Honduras that addresses water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) issues in schools in Honduras. Hosted by the Tocoa Rotary Club in the Colon region of northeastern Honduras, the project has achieved success in its first year of implementation with plans to expand over the next 4 years.
Prez Jan Brown led the meeting, Jerry Feagley lead the Pledge, and Jim Findley gave the invocation for peace, justice and freedom on Earth. Alan Blavins thought for the day.
Jan Brown gave a Sunshine Report that Wally Arakozie is getting married.
In the context of the Club’s long history, she also observed that Mike Winter is our longest standing member at 52 years, and Nakele Rechenauer is our newest member. The life of Richmond Rotary, embodied in our membership, therefore spans from Mike to Nakele. Jan is very proud of our group and everything it brings to make Richmond a better place.
