All the youth groups were present and several men. Betty is an outstanding governor, well respected and this particular function was her idea. Great meeting with gracious, contributing Rotarians.

Recently, the Finance Committee had dinner in the Rotary One cafeteria. Rotary has a new service providing the food and the chefs cooked our dinner. We had a contest based on who could make the best dessert. Our Finance chair, Ron Beaubien, planned the event. We worked in groups to make desserts. It was a lot of fun.

Rotary International Vice President Anne Matthews (and District 7770 Rotarian) is leading a team of South Carolina Rotarians to Ghana on a goodwill mission. Please enjoy her own narration of the trip.

In a village in Ghana where Rotary gave them wells for clean water . They gave Walter Hughes and me the very best they had. I got four guinea fowl and Walter got a goat. We were honored to receive them. I know you want to know what we did with them. We gave them to the next village we went to. And we bought several goats  (about $32 each) and gave to kids in villages, as they asked for them. This is a livelihood for a family. This trip makes me value my blessings at home.  I gave pencils to children who prized them. The children are beautiful and need so much. Ron Morton, a member of the Sumter Club, got to see a well being dug in Ghana. He and Andrea are on this trip to Ghana. Two ladies from the Eau Claire Club are with us –Benetta ( a past president) and Norma. Carrington and Barry also came along from the Florence Monday Club.
