Two More Global Grants Approved by TRF for Water, Sanitation & Hygiene Projects in Guatemala
The Rotary Foundation (TRF) recently approved applications for two more Global Grants (GG) to support the funds to purchase materials and supplies for sustainable clean water, sanitation and hygiene facilities in the Mayan villages of Agua Caliente and Paxorotot, Guatemala.  As with the 25 previous projects sponsored by District 7890, all labor will be provided by the men and women in the communities.  668 families (approximately 4,208 people) will benefit from these improvements. 

To those who staffed the 2019 inaugural event; your generosity of time and spirit helped make it a success. I am hoping that most, if not all of you will be willing and able to staff our second annual event on Saturday, October 3. To those who missed year #1, please join us for #2. With your help, it can only get bigger and better. 

The ongoing need for COVID precautions requires additional planning and care to keep our participants and volunteers safe and secure. We anticipate the community will be eager and ready to get out and participate in this free event celebrating all levels of mobility.

As before, the major intersections will need “route marshals” as will the 4 rest stops and registration area. We will not be using shuttle buses this year. Completion of the bridge over Center St. makes that segment safe and rider friendly. 

Following a dedication of the new Rotary Pavilion at 9:00amevent registration will begin at 9:30Welcoming remarks will commence at 10:00 and the riders will take off at 10:30

It goes without saying that this offering is not possible without the generous support and participation of our volunteer staff. Please let me know of your interest and availability for October 3rd, or sign up using the volunteer link below.
