The first step is to attend 2 or 3 club meetings or events.  This will give you an opportunity to meet us and learn more about our interaction in the community.  We are a dinner club so there will be a cost for the meal.  You can look at the meeting schedule on the home page under "speakers".  Please check as we are sometimes at a different location.

Our club executive approved a $500 contribution to this US$100,500 project to supply blood fridges & medical equipment in the Brong-Ahafo region of Ghana. (Brong-Ahafo is in south Ghana west of Lake Volta; it surrounds the towns of Sunyani and Techiman.) Bev Hilton & the Oceanside Rotary Club will administer the project.
 
How did this project come to be? 
There is a 10-year history behind this project:
The evolution of the Rotary World Community Service Mid-Island Group since 2007 has brought us to the point of being able to jointly plan, develop and implement a major project of this type.  The leveraged funding and sharing of expertise of MIG will allow us to make larger contributions and more significant impacts on our world communities.
  Jim and Don proudly display the new gas-fired grill at the Salvation Army New Hope Centre. 
Our club paid half ($1,500) of the purchase price.
The large grill has increased capacity for pancake production at the Community Breakfast.
