Connecting with Rotary in Cairo
I have connected with Rotary in Cairo and they have been extremely welcoming. Jeff, Cameron and I met with two Rotarians associated with the ambassadorial scholar program last week. (The slide show above called Views of the Nile and the Pyramids are photos taken from the office one of these gentlemen. If you click on it the pictures get big.) Our new Rotarian friends were very kind and had excellent suggestions for how our family could get to know Egypt with the help of Rotary and get involved with Rotary activities here. I was amazed to hear that there are 48 different Rotary clubs in the Cairo area! This Tuesday afternoon I will be speaking at the oldest of these clubs, founded in 1928. Jeff, Cameron and I will be going to meet with our host club on Monday evening. Rotary is doing some terrific service projects events in Cairo that I will tell you more about in another blog entry. We will be attending a Peace Conference hosted by Rotary this February.
