This week in Rotary
On August 12, 2021 at the Morning Meeting for all Del Sol Rotarians, District 5520 Governor Bob Rausch was the guest speaker making his annual visit to our club.  He gave a very inspiring and emotional speech titled "Why We Are Here", highlighting some projects done with the Bi-District in Juarez, Mexico.  He also focused on Rotary International's  fight to end Polio.

On Saturday, August 14, Del Sol, working together with the City of Albuquerque built the largest ramp done to date under the Ramps project. It was 35 feet long and included rebuilding the canopy over the ramp. 16 people showed up from Del Sol, family members from Del Sol and City of Albuquerque staff, to help with this project. Funding for this project comes from a Rotary District Grant and from City of Albuquerque Funds.
