Rotarians from Edmonton Glenora Club (Donna Ducomman, Eunice Maris, Wendy Andrews) joined Rotarian Lynne Paradis (Red Deer) and Jackie Hobal at the Radisson in Belize City. The early morning meeting of the Rotary Club of Belize Sunrise was lively and purposeful as old friendships were rekindled. Jackie was able to share highlights of our Belize Literacy program work in Belize over the past 10 years and share the snapshot program report designed by Jerome Martin. Future partnerships and plans with the Adopt a School program were revealed.

Wendy Andrews, chair of the Playground Committee shared plans for unloading the D5370 container presently in Customs in Belize City. Three playgrounds will be unloaded at Prosser Plant (thanks to Junior and Salvador Espat) and distributed to Toledo and Cayo Districts.

Discussions with Ministry of Education officials – Nelson Longsworth, Cayo Manager Mr. Carbello, Restore Belize and Rotary partners in Belize City were informative.

The trip was a big success, from the science perspective. I worked with the coaches and the principals and VP's had the choice to stay with me or go with nelson/the math folks. We had about half participate with each of us. By far I have to say the biggest success was in Punta Gorda with the Toledo District folks. They were SO eager to learn, share their ideas and experiences, be totally open to the (new) paradigm of teaching and learning (inquiry based, experiential, being resourceful), and blew me away!!!  The same can be said of the Stann Creek folks. I found some hesitancy of the Corozal group, and there were a few missing as Nelson noted. We only had 8 in my group that day, while Stann Creek was about 16 and Toledo was 24-26 total.
