By leveraging Rotary International's enormous resources, our small club has been able to accomplish some amazing things.
 
Our charter member and District 5510 Governor Norma Taylor-Roderique spearheaded the building of the Heather Kinross Rotary Village, a community in Cuauneutla, Sierra Norte de Puebla, Mexico which has approximately 100 houses, a school and several enterprises.
 
We have been awarded and administered several large grants to supply medical equipment and supplies to the Hermosillo Children's Hospital in Mexico and several large grants to provide medical equipment and supplies to Nicaraguan Hospitals. 
 
We have hosted, in our homes, new friends visiting from Bolivia, Rwanda, Pakistan, India, Russia, Mexico, Brazil, Great Britain and other countries.
 
We also serve our local community. We have facilitated funding for scholarships and trade tools, cleaned up trash on our streets, assisted homeless military veterans, provided mentoring to youth and generally help wherever we can.
 
If this sounds interesting to you, please consider joining us as we attempt to live up to our motto "Service Above Self" and have a fun time doing it.
