Please mark your calendar for our e-Club's next Zoom online social meeting!
Thursday, October 3rd from 7-8 pm CT, check back for the zoom link.
It's a great time to see other e-Club members face-to-face via Zoom. If you've never been to a Zoom meeting before, it's very easy - just a clink on the link that we will provide for you and you're there. Grab a drink or a snack, sit back and then join us so that we can get to know each other better. And it's fun too - see you there!
Isis Mejias announces with great pleasure that our second 40-ft container with Rise Against Hunger Meals arrived July 17th to Pamplona, Colombia to support our Hope for Venezuelan Refugees Project. We are officially starting Phase 2 of this project and are very excited to lead this effort to build peace in the region by providing a hot meal to Venezuelan refugees. We are in need of help urgently (see message above). Please contact Isis if you are interested in participating. 
We have an urgent need for your support for the Hope for Venezuelan Refugee Project. Therefore this is a CALL TO ACTION request for all members of our E-Club.
 
There are several ways that we can use your talents to help with this effort (speaking/writing Spanish is not a requirement).  All project support/help can be done from a computer or smart phone from anywhere in the world.   
 
Please see Isis and Cristal's International Services Committee Report (attached) that gives the latest update on the status of this important project and what you can do to help. All specific areas of help are very well described so that you will know what is needed. 
 
The time is Now to help make this project a success- the duration is a short 13 weeks!
 
Please read the update and let Isis know in what area you can help. If we all pitch in, the project will be a success and we will have helped give humanitarian aid to thousands of people who are in desperate need. 
 
I challenge each one of you to get involved. As Rotarians, this is what we do and this is the opportunity to do it.
 
Yours in Service,

David and wife Tanya, of Arlington, TX, had arrived at their vacation cottage west of Cobano, Costa Rica in the middle of the night in blinding rain. The next morning, as they were drinking coffee with John and Stephanie, the managers of the cottage they rented, they were introduced to Graciela, a woman living on a nearby farm who was selling milk, eggs, fresh chicken, and cheese. David and Tanya bought all she had, as they were going to be staying for the whole week and needed these basics.
 
The following morning when Graciela arrived, David asked her (through Stephanie’s translation) if she could teach him how to make the white cheese she sold them. She seemed puzzled, but also pleased, and she agreed. So the next morning she showed up at their cottage with 2 gallons of fresh milk, buckets, cheesecloth and a wooden press, and for the next four hours, they made cheese.
 
David was in Costa Rica for the ninth time that July and this was Tanya’s first time there. David had just come out of the jungle in the eastern mountain region where he had spent a week working with the indigenous Cabecar people through his church in Texas. Tanya joined him on the other side of Costa Rica for a little R&R after his mission work. David spoke very limited Spanish, so all his conversations with Graciela were through Stephanie or John.
 
They talked about Graciela living with her husband and teenaged daughters on their farm farther down the rough road. John told them, that in reality, her humble house could not be driven to in anything but a 4-wheel drive vehicle. In fact, getting out to sell her produce is usually quite a chore. She travels into Cobano sometimes, but usually sells to rural folks. They talked about their families – Tanya and David have a son, a daughter, two grandsons and a granddaughter. Graciela told about her twin sixteen-year-old daughters, but one was having to live with Graciela’s mother in Nicaragua because she was handicapped and life is hard on the farm.
