When Malibu Rotary Past President William Wishard signed up, along with 110 other District 5280 Rotarians, to go on the trip to Ecuador to visit the various humanitarian projects that clubs in the Los Angeles area had contributed to in that South American country, he knew it would be an unforgettable experience, but he did not know how great it would be.

Bill said that Rotarians often talk about their "Rotary Moment," when they realize what Rotary is all about.  For Bill, he experienced that moment and more.


Bill was not only representing the Malibu Rotary Club as part of the District 5280 entourage, but found himself as the hub and connector to several other projects not  connected with District 5280, but connected to Rotary, in some way, and he learned a lot about the family into which his daughter married.
