Nine Rotarians pitched in with a lot of physical labor to help take down the booths, tables and chairs at the annual Feria de Los Maestros.  The coordinator of the Feria was very appreciative of our willingness to do the unglamorous job of "clean up", especially when the other volunteers were exhausted after three days of work.
 
Other Rotarians also pitched in over the three days weekend by hosting artists for 3 days at their homes, announcing ( bilingually) stage events, and helping with admissions.  Truly a weekend of "Service above Self".
Our environmental partner, Aipromades, is following through on a commitment to our "adopted village" Ojo de Agua. In a community assessment last October, villagers identify clean water and sanitation as their top priorities.  We are providing workshops for villagers and kids, over 5 Saturdays, on the identification, collection, disposal, recycling, composting possibilities in the village.
On September 27th, our Club donated 20,000 pesos to Escuela Foraneh #1 Jose Vasconcelos in Chapala for a permanent playground roof that protects from the rain and sun as students play and assemble outside.  This secondaria (middle) school is inner city with little space for students to congregate outside the classroom.  The parent club has been working for three years to raise the funds for this project and our donation gets them nearly to the top.  We hope that other like minded people and clubs will donate to help finish off this project.
Frank Ewer and a new Board of Directors were sworn into office at a Changing of the Button ceremony of on July 1, 2019 at Manix Restaurant.  More the 50 people attended the lively party in which Hector España Ramos thanked this 2018-2019 Board before he turned the gavel over to our 2019-2020 President.  Frank and his Board committed to making positive change in our communities.  Past President Hector España Ramos and Beverly Denton received Paul Harris Fellowship awards for their extraordinary service to the Club.  A delicious dinner, music and dancing followed. 
 
 
CELEBRATING THE CHANGING OF THE GUARD .... Monday, June 11, the Chapala Sunrise Rotary Club celebrated the inaguration of the club's new President, Hector Espana Ramos. He takes over the gavel from Bill Wilson. His 2018-2019 Board of Directors was recognized and sworn in, while members of the prior Board were recognized and thanked with gifts.
The event took place at Mariscos Guicho restaurant on the pier in Chapala.
