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.

Glenora Rotarians Wendy, Eunice and Donna will spend the day at Ocean Academy and will attend Interact Club lunch and talk with the students about the Leadership camps. After school the OA club goes to read with primary-school children, and Wendy said she would be interested in seeing that relationship too.

Teams from Athabasca Club, Athabasca Interact, Nisku-Leduc, Riverview and Calmar Interact arrive Thursday and Friday. A VTT from Red Deer (13 in all) will convene in Cayo for Literacy Workshops

Friday Plans include - meeting with Cayo District MOE and Faith Nazerine School staff followed in evening by Athabasca Club hosting reception for San Ignacio Club and teams from D5360/5370.

Beautiful day in Belize City! Belize City Rotary Meeting today at noon.
