International Service Chair Mike Hancock (pictured on right) introduced Sonya Ramirez (center) from Club Rotario Villa Real in Tagucigalpa, Honduras.  They met earlier this year at the Central America Rotary Project Fair, and it was from their discussions that Mike brought back to the Club the hands on project to help expand a health center in Honduras.  Sonya’s Club is small (25 young members), but they are VERY active in partnering with Clubs from all over the world to take advantage of Rotary Foundation grants.  Sonya spoke of the huge need in Honduras, and showed a dynamite video showing many ambitious, diverse projects that the Club has completed with the help of international partners.
 
Mike Hancock provided follow-up info on the hands-on project to expand a health center, working with Sonya's Club.  So far four volunteers are signed up for the September 10-17 trip, but many more helping hands are needed. Mike hopes to obtain a Rotary district grant for project funding, and he has preliminary info on the costs per Rotarian. Contact Mike at mike380@live.com.
