Will you be on the bus?
On March 5th, our board voted unanimously in favour of partnering with our other Abbotsford Rotary clubs, the Chilliwack club, and potentially, several other clubs in a wheelchair project to Guatemala for 2019 and 2020. The proposed project is intended to resource a local manufacturer in Antigua, Guatemala to not only manufacture chairs, but also provide ongoing maintenance for chairs already distributed. The project’s ultimate goal is to build sustainability into the manufacturing of wheelchairs for a local Guatemala company. An integral part of this two-year project will be active participation by members of our club in 2020, as a way of marking our club’s 70th anniversary.
Start planning your vacation time now for early 2020. More details to come.
