2 September 2013 — Sandra/Arturo Velasquez, District 5280 Humanitarian Trip to Colombia










Visit Columbia!

OK, OK, that’s not the right one.  Visit Columbia!

OK, wait, that’s not it, either.  Maybe it’s that U in the middle, let’s replace that with an O and …. visit Colombia!

For several years, District 5280 has facilitated a visit of approximately 100 local Rotarians to a foreign nation (or once to Puerto Rico), to participate hands-on in several international projects in a weekend or so.  This year the “District 5280 Humanitarian Trip” will visit Colombia, and this week we learn all about the opportunity from Trip Co-Chairs Sandra and Arturo Velasquez.
