International Global Grants
Mary Jane Calvey and Terry Neese just participated in an International project Water Well dedication in Morocco!!
“It was just the two of us in Morocco dedicating the water well in M’hamid. We were there 4 days and spent time in the old city of M’hamid where the water well was located. We had a Rotary Club meeting and sat on the dirt floor covered with rugs and had lunch with Rotary members from Madrid, Spain and other parts of Morocco. It was a trip of a lifetime! ” – Terry Neese
