On Friday 6th December 2013, the Partners in Service organized a Christmas treat for approximately 45 students of the Brasso Venado Primary School situated. Rotarians joined with the spouses in providing lunch, ice cream and toys for the children (ages 5 - 12 years). Food hampers were also provided to the parents of the children.

The drive from our Club location to the school took us along a scenic path through the central mountain range and lasted for about one and a half hours. Led by President George, other Rotarians: Robert, Mike, Daniel, Ronald, Janet, Dean made the trip. We were warmly greeted by the Principal and students of the school.

The first highlight of the event was the grand entrance of Santa Claus aboard a fire engine. This created an air of excitement among students, teachers and parents. Santa emerged with a bagful of toys and distributed to the eager students.

The next highlight was the unexpected reciprocation of gifts from the students. They presented the Spouses and Rotarians with fresh produce from their gardens. This was a touching moment fr Rotarians as we were not expecting this.

In departing, students sang well wishes to us.........have a look at the pictures as token memories of a wonderful and gratifying project executed by our Partners in Service.Image

Intense summer program gives Israeli and Palestinian teens new perspectives
Students from Israel and Palestine sat together at a local art studio in Encinitas, California, USA, one day last summer, drawing portraits of one another and learning how to live in peace. Kelly Mellos, an organizer of the project from the Rotary Club of Encinitas Coastal, says that drawing someone who is sitting so close helps break down social barriers between the young people. "They see how many similarities there are between them," she says. "And they begin to understand we are all just people. There is a respect and trust that builds." The students were participating in a program run by...

Man in iron lung discovers Rotary
One might think a man living with polio in an iron lung would know about Rotary. But it wasn't until Paul Alexander had a business meeting with a member in Duncanville, Texas, earlier this year that he learned Rotary fights to eradicate the very disease that left him almost completely paralyzed. "I was completely blown away by the idea. For all these years, I didn't know the work they were doing," says Alexander, a practicing attorney in Dallas. "It's such a perfect fit for me." Alexander contracted polio during a major U.S. outbreak of the disease in the late 1950s when he was six years old...
