ROTARIANS FROM THE LAKE HAVASU CITY ROTARY CLUB ASSIST HURRICANE VICTIMS IN BARBUDA 

Who: Rotarians Bob & Carrie Hemme, Lake Havasu City Rotary Club

What: Aid with water, reusable water containers along with transporting building materials, food and an Island Native.

Where: Antigua/Barbuda

When: November, 2017

Why: Aid hurricane victims on the devastated Island of Barbuda
 
——————————

My husband Rotarian Bob Hemme and myself, Rotarian Carrie Hemme happened to have our boat Lady J, on the Island of Antigua when hurricanes Irma & Maria hit the Caribbean region in early September. The Island of Antigua faired well, however it’s Sister Island, Barbuda was devastated with the entire population being evacuated to nearby Antigua while the rebuilding process began. 

Approximately 100 Barbudian natives had returned to their homes, with most sleeping in tents using sterno stoves to cook and without the daily luxuries such as electricity and running water. The organization Samaritan’s, brought in a portable desalinater allowing each household to gather 5 gallons per day for cooking and sanitation purposes; the average American family uses 300 gallons per day!
We had discussed the fact we have a water desalinater on board the Lady J which produces 30 gallons per hour - let’s help the people! With the approval of our Board, we purchased 50 collapsible water containers and began communicating with the Rotary Club of Antigua. It takes a village as we all know as in the end it took the efforts of NODS (National Office of Disaster Services), Customs, The Coast Guard along with the Army who controlled the receiving dock in Barbuda. Without the Antigua Rotary Club’s governmental contacts however; this project would have never occurred.

As the sun rose on the morning of November 14th, we pulled up to the St. John’s Customs dock where the Director of NODS along with his team loaded our boat with building supplies and a Native Barbuda boarded who was excited to reunite with her family and bring them a large supply of food. Not only were the locals excited about the additional water rations they were receiving, they were ECSTATIC about the collapsable water containers as they were using small water bottles bottles to gather their rations. With all building supplies unloaded we headed back to Antigua the following morning and home in time for Thanksgiving with our families.

Yours in Rotary,
Carrie & Bob Hemme

Posted by Scott Le Grand
March Madnesssss!! This month has been full of little adventures. I did not take any big trips, I have not done anything too crazy, but I have had a lot of fun. I started the month off with my first day back at school. It was great to see the people that I didnt get to see during the summer break. Everybody in the school wanted to know what I had done and where I had gone. I spent the rest of the month taking about all of my summer fun. I came to realize that I have very limited time left here in my new home so a lot of the month I have been learning things and doing things that I have not yet had time to do. My host mom and I have bonded a lot during the month over little activities. We go to the gym and do dance classes together. I absolutely love spending time with her. My host dad and I had a father and daughter day where we went out to lunch and he took me to a few places in Santiago (the capital of Chile) where I had never been before. I also spent a lot of time with my councilor doing Rotary activities. I have learned to cook a few more of the typical Chilean foods so that when I get back I will be able to share a major part of the culture. Also, I learned how to sew! I have made a few things that I am excited to bring back as gifts for my family. I am not ready to leave here because I love it so much, but I am starting to feel ready to be home. However it is not possible to accomplish both so I am stuck somewhere in the atmosphere... But I decided that I have to make the bast and use my time wisely with what I have now. So I am doing just that. My life here in Chile is a huge part of me and am so very thankful that I am able to have it. Next month I am going on my last Rotary trip of the year! Stay tuned!

For Immediate Release

Lake Havasu Rotary Club Partnership Charity Event Seeks Golfers and Dinner Attendees

Lake Havasu City – Friday September 16, 2011: Lake Havasu City Rotary Club, a local chapter of Rotary International is

one of 33,000 Rotary clubs in more than 200 countries and geographical areas, is pleased to announce its upcoming golf and

dinner charity event scheduled for November 12, 2011. Proceeds benefit local and area children organizations, and

programs as well as community projects that would go unfunded if not for the generosity of those who support their efforts.

This year’s event takes place at the Refuge Golf & Country Club. The course is well known for its excellent conditions, fast

greens, lush desert landscaping, rolling terrain, and scenic lake back drop. The 18-hole championship golf course provides

excitement for golfers of all skill levels. The Refuge is open to the public, with private memberships available, has banquet

facilities, and features a restaurant, spa, workout room, and infinity edge pool overlooking the course and Lake Havasu.

The Club offers a fully stocked Golf Shop.

The club says the charity event is two parts venue and open to the public. It is comprised of day time golf activities and the

evening dinner party. Event participants are not required to play golf and can just attend the evening festivities. The

tournament is geared towards everyone and not a showdown for expert golfers. Registration is $130 per player, after

October 15th it is $145. Green fees cover golf fee, cart, prizes, Feast on the Fairway, and dinner party that evening. The

tournament will commence with a 12pm shotgun start, with same day registration beginning at 10am. Golf participants may

contact Mike Dunavant at (928) 486-66015 with any questions. Non golfers and golfers alike will enjoy a evening filled

with entertainment and fun. The evening starts with cocktails poolside at 5 pm at the Refuge's newly completed infinity

edge pool overlooking the course and the lake. A Caribbean style dinner takes place at 6 PM and the festivities begin after

that. For further information or to download a printable PDF golf registration and sponsorship form, please visit
