At the Nov. 10 Waunakee Rotary meeting, they talked about their trip to Sheridan to be ambassadors for that club.
Since the 1950s, the Wyoming Rotary club has sponsored clubs from throughout the United States, offering a three-day Gun Powder and Buckskins experience.
In light if recent disasters in Haiti and elsewhere, a generous Waunakee Rotarian has made a donation and issued a challenge to all members to make a donation towards the purchase of a Shelter-Box. The Waunakee Rotary Foundation will match donations up to $1,000 total between now and the end of 2016. Checks should be made to Waunakee Rotary Foundation with a note stating the funds are for a Shelter Box. Mail your check to P.O. Box 159, Waunakee, WI 53597. The Waunakee Rotary Foundation is a 501(c)3 organization and donations may be tax-deductible.
Shelter Box is an international relief organization that provides emergency shelter and vital supplies to support communities around the world overwhelmed by disaster and humanitarian crisis. Shelter Box aid is tailored to a disaster but typically includes a disaster relief tent for a family, thermal blankets and groundsheets, water storage and purification equipment, solar lamps, cooking utensils, a basic tool kit, mosquito nets and children’s activity pack.

A highlight for the team was greeting the chief of Sagadugu. The team got excited about buying goats and food for children in the villages where I support eight churches. It was good to see the pastors of most of the eight churches, and I had to explain that we were just passing through on our way to Bolgatanga.
