International Project Dedication Trips

We have a golden opportunity for the Club 29 Rotarian who is able and willing to take pictures/videos of the dedication on June 9th and 10th and we are offering a round trip flight covering most of the cost of traveling to Riga, Latvia. Air miles will pay for travel from OKC to Helsinki and the individual will have to cover approximately $200 for the flight from Helsinki to Riga and their hotel/meal expense. A Rotarian could be gone as little as 5 or 6 days or as long as they want to see that part of the world. Please contact Bob Medley or Mary Jane Calvey if you are interested.

Drivers needed for International Guests

David Postic is needing drivers for Monday April 4, Thursday April 7 and Friday April 8 to drive five German Rotaractors. (Rotaract is a Rotary International sponsored organization of young adults focused on leadership in their communities and workplaces.) Committee chair David Postic just had a cancellation for Monday which we need to fill immediately. Rotaractor In-Bound Schedule The drivers would be involved all day.

If there are one or two Club 29 Rotarians who can drive them any of these days, that would greatly assist. The Germans all speak excellent English and our goal is to show them a GREAT time in Oklahoma. Let me know if anyone can help. Thanks! Contact David Postic   posticd@gmail.com
