Charlie Cutler's career as a tennis player took him to a lot of Latin American
countries, where he found a sharp contrast between the slums and the elites.  It
led him to an MA in International Human Rights and an internship with the
Border Community Alliance.  His project, the Border Youth Tennis Exchange,
aims to enhance the lives of children on both sides of the border through sports
and education, instilling discipline, commitment, and positive life habits.
  Jerry Meigs, one of our frequent winter visitors,  has been a District
Governor and a Rotary International Director, and is currently Chair of
the Rotary Peace Centers Major Gifts Initiative, which aims at raising
$150 million.  He gave us a brief history of the Peace Centers program,
which involves 7 universities worldwide and has 900 graduates at work in
100 countries.
Nile Ramsbottom lost his job with Purina at age 55, then took a local Iowa
company national and then global by turning their attempt at soy-based WD-40
look-alike into one of the earliest producers of bio-diesel.  He described the
challenges of designing an efficient production system, establishing a distri-
bution system, and building a $1.5 billion company.
  The Club meeting will be back at Grill on the Green on April 19.  The meeting
at Torres Blancas was a bit short of ideal, especially the acoustics.  It will be
great to be back at the Grill.  We should be finding out who won the Food Fight.
Club Meeting & Lunch 11:30 Tuesdays

SERVICE ABOVE SELF
John Geiger, from the Volunteer Clearinghouse, received the Club's annual
Community Service Above Self award at the April 5 meeting.  He said the reward
in volunteering comes from interacting with the people one meets.  He donated
his $100 check to the Pima Council on Aging.
  Our Spring Bacchanal fund raiser was April 9.  Marvin Hass and Jill Leach
were 2 of our event Chairs.  Thanks to all who donated, helped, and
participated, including the Green Valley Aires, Spanish guitarist Gabriel
Francisco, and the Sahuarita High School Strings.
