Club 11 put the Rotary International theme – Rotary Connects the World – into action last week.  
Crestwood/Sunset Hills Rotary and our Club 11 hosted and financially supported the El Mournzi family from Dreaux, France.  They are in St. Louis for approximately one month for neurological surgery at Barnes Hospital for 5 year old Noam.  The report is that the initial operation went well. The procedure is  rare and not available in France.  With the help and sponsorship of Rotary de Dreaux, the El Mournzi family was able to come to the USA.
The family was the guest of Past President Bob Sherrill at our meeting on 7/18.  Rachel Souvre of our satellite, St. Louis Civilians, served as interpreter.  Bob provided several meals and escorted the family to a few St. Louis attractions.  Thank you, Bob and Rachel.
Though we are focused locally, this is a great example of how Rotary (especially Club 11) can connect the World.
President Bob Garagiola
