Contact PP Dave Parish with program suggestions. B Rotary Archive y the 1920 s, Rotary knew it could be successful in large cities, but could it be successful in smaller cities and even small towns. We know the answer because Rotary is everywhere. It is not the size of the city but rather, it is the size of the heart of club members that determines the success of a Rotary Club. Source: R.G.H.F.

Our Club will be donating $1,000 towards the purchase of five solar panels to assist their efforts. McMahon, Morgan and Mairena are helping a group of approximately twenty women who manufacture beautiful handmade pine needle baskets in a community near El Sauce, Nicaragua. Presently the baskets are being sold locally in Rochester and Buffalo. The current limitation to the number of baskets the women are able to produce is they can only be made during daylight hours: there is no electricity to light their homes after sunset. A single solar panel with batteries is capable of lighting four light bulbs so the women will no longer need to rely on smoke producing fuel which affects the health of their family members and the quality of the baskets. Charles Tyo remarked it is a low-cost improvement in a simple system that will bring artificial light into their homes which will significantly improve their lives.
