Rotary Last Week – February 24th

Col. Cindy Jebb of the Social Services Dept. gave a most interesting presentation on her experiences in the African nations of Kenya, Bijibouti, & Ethiopia. She commented on their civil affairs, including items such as water related diseases, cultures, ethnics, politics, security, and many other civic problems that exist. The presentation was reinforced by an excellent slide show. Col. Jebb has written two books, re: her experiences.   (Excellent program.)
