NEWS ABOUT OUR SISTER CLUB - CHAPALA SUNRISE CLUB, CHAPALA, MEXICO
 
Chapala Sunrise Rotary Club past-president , John Gonzales, is getting help fromchildren at Love in Action Orpahage.  The ribbon cutting is for a new playground completed as a joint effort between the Rotary Club of Fountain Hills and the Chapala Sunrise Rotary Club.  Additional funds were provided by the Eden Prairie Noon Rotary Club and Charles Lloyd, a resident of Houston, Texas. 
 
With so much need in Mexico's communities, it was debated whether a playground is actually the best use of our club funds.  While learning about the need, John Gonzales and Kari Romey (Love in Action Executive Director) explained that the children living in the orphanage had probably not ever learned how to have fun prior to moving to Love in Action.  Their lives were only about survival.  Kari explained that learning to have fun promotes imagination and self-expression which are much-needed life skills.  For that reason, having a safe and fun environment is very important to their resident children.
