Westfield Rotary Club Helps Fund Community Center in Nicaragua
 
 
 

Twenty-three students and two faculty members from Westfield State University travelled to Granada, Nicaragua at the beginning of January as a service learning course.

Within two weeks, they worked alongside local builders to help construct a community center for the residents in a village outside of Granada.

In addition to building, the members immersed themselves into the culture and community they were working in, through various activities such as exploring local markets and planning lessons to teach children in the area.

On the last day, the builders, children, families and the Westfield State group got together to celebrate the new community center.

The Rotary Club of Westfield supported this project with a building materials grant to the Institute for Central American Studies in the amount of $1,500.00 which we presented on December 4, 2017.

 
The members of the Rotary Club of Westfield were visited at their regular Monday meeting by members of the West Springfield Rotary Club, Bob MacDonald and Dan Marini (President), who thanked the Westfield Rotarians for their support of project to help schoolchildren in India.
