Mexican Mission to Puruandiro, Michoacán
Final planning for RCI’s tenth mission and first to Mexico is almost complete. the Rotary Clubs of Toledo ($5000) and Sylvania ($1000.00) are financially supporting the mission. Additional funding is a $1000 grant from MESA and a District Grant. The Rotary Club of Puruándiro Purepecho is responsible for the container once it arrives at the Port of Lazaro Cardenas.
The mission dates are November 17 to the 28th. The mission team is composed of three education professionals who are fluent in Spanish, and the Project Coordinator… Mel Honig.
We still have room for any Rotarian(s) who would like to join the Mission Team. We all arrive in Guadalajara for a short drive to Puruándiro. The Rotary Club of Puruándiro will be hosting us as well as joining us on the mission as we open resource centers in 16 preschool classrooms.
