At the completion of the bed project we were asked to come to Jacqueline’s house for supper on her deck. When we arrived all of the people who received beds and some family members lined the edge of the deck with big smiles.
A program had been prepared involving some entertainment organized by Mary Cruz and Josefa. ( a banana eating contest and a “who could chew a string the fastest to get a candy”) Much laughter by all. This was followed by many thank you speeches and presentations of certificates to the helpers. Each member of our Rotary team received a certificate and an art piece.
Following the program we were served a dinner. Surprise! The meal was cooked and served by our contractors Mario and Juliano who are also cooks.
AND WHEN IT CAME TIME TO PAY….
Each of the families who received a bed contributed 5 quetzales to our dinner. A huge amount in their lives.
What can I say.
