SWAT VALLEY OF PAKISTAN HIT HARD BY EARTH QUAKE
This past September at the Motor City Zone we had the pleasure of meeting and hearing from Princess Zebu Jilani of Swat Valley. Just a few weeks ago her village and many surrounding it were struck by a massive 8.1 earthquake. Several people were killed, many were injured and countless numbers lost everything. Please see this most recent correspondence from Rotarian Zebu requesting aid. Anything your clubs and districts can do to help will be most greatly appreciated.
Greetings Rotary Leaders,
I’m writing today to say thank you to the countless volunteers who contributed to making the Motor City Zone a huge success.
Our dream was to bring our Zone leadership to Detroit to showcase the great city that we know it is – the comeback kid story! I truly believe that Detroit is going through a cultural renaissance and I wanted you to see her in all it’s splendor. Well folks – we did it. People are raving about Detroit and I am getting hundreds of messages that you are coming back for more.
There were literally dozens and dozens of volunteers from across our 28 districts that took time to pick up hundreds of our visitors from the airport, acted as greeters, took photographs, produced an outstanding program, participated as training leaders, acted as Sergeant at Arms, hosted receptions, and provided hospitality and inspiration. If this were a report card, all I can say is A+++.
