President's Message
Hello, Rotarians!
Was great seeing everyone at Unity last Wednesday as Trudie Crawford gave her always entertaining and informative presentation – this time on the wonderful works of Rotary International as it relates to Polio eradication. Trudie is the District Chair for Polio Plus. We are fortunate to have her talents in our club.
This week we welcome Stephanie Mudd of the Foundation for the Carolinas, a pretty well known and respected charitable organization in the Charlotte metro region.
See you Wednesday at Unity!

Jim Minor Reports on Successful Costa Rica Trip
Jim Minor has returned from Guapiles where Denver/Lake Norman Rotary donated 90 pairs of shoes.  Jim reports that:
  • The shoe donation and distribution was hugely successful and VERY warmly received by the Pastor of the Iglesia Metodista en Guaplies, his Family and all of parishioners and their families.
  • This experience was exceptionally rewarding, despite the exorbitant baggage fees that American Airlines charged us for having three bags over our allotted number for the international flight [all three duffel bags full of donated shoes].
  • The building mission Team's major accomplishment this year was the COMPLETION of the Pastor's Family Parsonage, after 3 years of work; they moved in on Sunday, Feb 12, and were ECSTATIC, after living for about 5 years in what most of us would consider 'squalid' conditions
  • Climate conditions on the Caribbean coast were truer rainforest-like, with both daytime temps and humidity levels at or above 90.  I came home 5 pounds lighter, due I'm sure to a combination of the work conditions, "dietary changes", and the infection I acquired while in country.
Photos are being collated and will be offered as a presentation for the Club at a future date.
