Today’s guest speaker was Max Ahrens, President of the ROTARACT Club at the University of Redlands.
Max told us a bit about their group – and the projects they have undertaken. They were “refounded” in 2011, most of the members are business majors.
They have committed to raising $10,000 annually, and use the funds for the Peanut Butter Project. Past support has gone to Focus on India, “Circle of Amigos” in Nicaragua, Mending Kids International, and the Free Wheelchair Mission. They have surpassed their goal, and have raised it to $15,000 for the year. They have raised $12,000 so far, and are looking for donations which will be matched by RI.
Thanks, Max – we appreciate your pork and presentation.
Thomas Flach, Acupuncturist, spoke about the history of his profession and the benefits of his services for our well being and good health. Many members raised their hands that they were familiar with this 5,000 year old profession.
