Can you imagine how you would go about recovery at 80?

PLEASE DONATE

An 80-year-old man stands in front of his destroyed home in Marigot, Dominica, on 27 September.
Late Wednesday night Robin's daughter Julie Ann received word from the university on Dominica confirming her father had been located and was "Fine" . The family had feared the worst after seeing pictures of the devastation wrought by Maria. When hurricane Irma missed the island earlier Robin had made the decision to complete his Rotary mission to award a scholarship as planned. He could never have imagined what would happen next. It was dark as the storm approached the island. One can only guess what it was like couched in the darkness with the sound of the 150 mph winds and torrential rain beating on the building wondering if he would survive. Robin will have a tale to tell when he returns as only he can do. We wish him a safe and speedy passage home.

Saturday: September 23 Update: I spoke with Robin's wife Maeve. She said that she received a call from the French gentlemen who is now in Martinique that had gone through the hurricane with Robin at the hotel. He reported Robin is well. Boats are now evacuating American students and tourists to St. Lucia from Roseau Dominica. From there they will be picked up by as US C-130 for transport back to the US. Maeve expects he may be home in the next 3-4 days. Can't wait.

Sunday: September 24, Update: Past President Robin Foley was airlifted from Dominica and later flown aboard a C-130 to Martinique. Then by commercial flight to Barbados and to Miami airport. One of his first calls was to President Andy Burnstein to tell him he was alright and back on US soil. "You are a hero," Andy told him. "I had tears in my eyes talking with him," Andy said. Robin was awaiting a flight home to Pensacola. Robin said his mission now was to raise money to aid the people of Dominica. "They have lost everything," said Robin. Andy reported that even before he know when he could
expect to be rescued, Robin was helping others doing what he could for all those around him. Hats of to a great Rotarian. We are glad to have him home.

 

Monday October 2, Update: Received word via What'sApp text that our student Nyamie is safe and well. Her home was flooded. Communication is by text only, and is slow and sporadic. No stable internet yet in that area. No electricity yet.

Meet Our First Virtual Member, Emily
EmilyEmily is the character in our Rotary Tutorial. As our newest ambassador it is her job to introduce potential members to Rotary and our club. It is fitting that a virtual Rotary club have at least one virtual member.
Because Emily is new to our club you will want to click on the link below and get to know her better. While in the tutorial take your time to explore all the tabs, especially the 'Video' button.
In all fairness we may ask John, also a virtual character to join the club later. Don't forget to test your Rotary knowledge at the end.
