Rotary meetings near CSA?
OK, I know it's not romantic, but we're going to CSA in January and I'd like to find a Rotary meeting to attend.
Many years ago I attended a Rotary meeting in Montego Bay. I was the only woman there--and I was the only American, too. The Rotarians were so very kind and welcoming, and as a business person I really learned a lot about real, day to day life in Jamaica.
They were trying to get together $200 to put a fresh water bubbler in one of the elementary schools. My club back here was able to make a matching grant and get them many bubblers for many schools. It was a wonderful feeling.
I've read on the message board about folks helping schools--I'd like to meet local folks who can tell me what is really needed, whether at a school or somewhere else--and get the lowdown on the best jerk around, etc. So, I'm not trying to find a meeting of other visitors (like they have on cruise ships), I'm looking for the local Club if there is one in the Negril area.

According to the Negril Rotary Club website, they meet Wed. at 7:00 pm.

excellent, thank you! And i guess this isn't the Rotary of 15+ years ago-the contact's name is Roberta, not Robert---I'll fit in a little better!
