A Focus on the Children - 10/23/2014 Membership Meeting

With all the Fundraising and other stuff that's been going on, it has really been hard to catch up my meeting blog!  And this was a very special meeting that deserves a write-up.

You can certainly tell how much Nancy Letteri loves the "Children of Vietnam" organization. Nancy is the Executive Director for "Children of Vietnam" and a passionate advocate for this wonderful group that has so many ties to Gate City Rotary. It's no secret that Gate City Rotary also loves "Children of Vietnam" and Nancy was here to tell us just how much our club has done to improve the lives of a group of people who wouldn't have basic necessities if it wasn't for donations that stretch farther than we can possibly imagine. Her heartfelt gratitude and stories of how much of a difference we have made in the lives of these children are what it's all about. Service above Self. It's why we are Rotarians!

Unfortunately, Nancy could not get her slide show to work, but she passed some pictures on to me. You can see them in the gallery below (which may take a few seconds to come up, but will be located under the pictures from our meeting). Just click on the arrows to see all the pictures. They are well worth it!
