Thank you Oakhurst Rotary Clubs

Our local Oakhurst Rotary Clubs keep stepping up. Last week the Oakhurst Sierra Sunrise Club's (a.k.a. The Morning Club) Board matched a $300 donation from one of the Club's members. This combined gift of $600 will pay for two full months of lunches for 110 students in Pignon. Then today Susan and I gave a presentation to the Oakhurst Sierra Rotary Club (a.k.a. The Noon Club). They were the spearhead club for the Pignon well project that was completed in October of 2011. We are proud to say that Haiti Outreach, our well driller, finished the well ahead of schedule and under budget. We and the community in Pignon are eternally grateful. The Noon Club, both as a group and individually, continue to be very supportive of our work in Haiti and we feel truly blessed. We had donations this afternoon that will cover the yearly school expenses for 3+ children. We are getting closer and closer to our goal of supporting the entire school population of 110 students. Both Oakhurst Rotary Clubs do tremendous work within our community and throughout the world. Susan and I are proud to be members, along with so many close friends, of these two dynamic groups of people.
