Our Club has a challenge to club members to raise funds for the Students coming from Manzanillo, Mexico. We are matching funds and the club was going to be contribute at least $250.00 and would match up to $500 from club members. So far we have raised $200 from the membership! But, they are still trying to raise funds.
Mark your calendar's to see the group on Thursday April 11, 2013 at the Washington Community Center. If you wish to donate to this cause, please bring a check to the next meeting and leave it with Terry. The check can be made payable to Washington Rotary and make sure you note the funds are for the Manzanillo Ballet Forklorico Project.
