Steven Nelson talked about our club’s involvement in the Guatemala Literacy Project. Before starting his talk, Steven presented a plaque from the Cooperative for Education (the GLP organization) congratulating us on our 50th anniversary. Students from the school in Guatemala sent us hand made and signed thank you letters which were placed on all the tables at Wednesday’s lunch. Our club has been active in the Guatemala Literacy Project for many years. In addition to our club there are 504 other clubs worldwide in 69 Rotary Districts, 8 countries and has been going on for 20 years.
