Mary Stuart is a member of the Rotary Club of Hilton Head Island. She was in Nairobi on a church mission trip and attended a Rotary meeting there.
Here are two photos taken when we attended the meeting of the Rotary Club of Karen at the Karen Country Club, the site of the coffee plantation that Karen Blixen – aka Isek Dennison – aka Meryl Streep – owned in “Out of Africa” – the Kenyan woman is Janet Mathenge, a past President to her right are Jan Cook and Jane Bush.
The current President, with whom she is exchanging our flag for their mug, is Protus Lumiti. There were about 15 members present that night.
Their club is featured in the February 2014 issue of The Rotarian (pages 16-17) for their program “Kenya Smiles” which is a joint dental care program with a Rotary club in CA. Mary remarked that it brought home the connection of our international relationships.
