Hola, Rotarians!

How many Rotarians does it take to connect a laptop to the projector?

Club President, Terry Engelken tries to move the meeting along a little during continued technical difficulties.

You can "like"the Rotary District 6000 joint project with Xicotepec Rotary Club in Mexico. There are currently 240 (up from 131 last summer) "likes." There are a lot of great pics and info on the ongoing project, going back to 2001!

If you'd like to look at a photo gallery that Rotarian Tom Narak collected from the team on a recent trip, check out this DropBox folder. If you find a picture you like, you can e-mail Tom and ask his for a copy.
