SANDY PATANO gave us some great programs this month, finishing the month with another great program with MICHELLE DIRKS.
MICHELLE  and her husband Brett have been leading teams of volunteers to Honduras since 2004. A commitment that started when their son Derek went to Yoro, Honduras as part of their church volunteer group. Derek talked his father into going, and the rest is history! 'Honduras Impact' was created to 'Help Hondurans help Hondurans'. Their group has gone to 13 different regions in Honduras providing medical and dental care, distributing such items as shoes, reading glasses,prescription medicine,  providing hygiene education with the help of LORA WHALEN,  and providing materials for the education of the children. This group has built 5 churches, a school, and a learning center for the community. Our club has been a generous donor for this worthwhile project and will continue with the help of Rotary's matching grant program.
