Solange Aquilar & Becky Porter

Our speakers this week were Solange Aquilar and our own Club President Becky Porter.  First, Solange talked about how she came to the Pacific Northwest after meeting our club members who were on a  wheelchair trip in her native country, El Salvador.  Solange moved here and lived with her host family, the Owen's, and began school at Cascadia Community College.  Solange recently graduated from Cascadia (where she found time to start a  Rotaract Club too!) and will be going on to the University of Washington in the Fall.  
Solange and Becky then presented a power point on their recent trip to the Rotary International Conference in São Paulo, Brazil.  Highlights of the trip including meeting many of our own district members, joining 500 other Rotarians in packaging over 100,000 meals for the needy, participating in a Rotary Brazilian-style carnival, and meeting many new Rotaractors and Rotarians from around the world.
