As on-line meetings become the new, albeit temporary, normal, we're beginning to get the hang of it!

Our May 5th meeting featured guest speaker Heather Edwards, a Rotarian from Oregon, who gave a presentation on Project Amigo in Colima, Mexico.
Yesterday, our guest speaker was Colin Thacker from North Bay, Ontario who told us about the Guatemala Literacy Project (GLP) which is one of the largest grassroots, multi-club, multi-district projects in Rotary. More than 680 Rotary clubs and 80 districts have been working together since 1997 to improve education for underserved students in Guatemala. In that time, nearly 225,500 students have been served through four sustainable programs that are tested and proven to work. In 2017, RI President Ian Riseley called the GLP “the gold standard of Rotary projects” for its sustainability and impact. 80% of Guatemala's rural population lives in poverty and children often go no further than grade 6. The GLP aims to lift children from tthat cycle of poverty.
