Trip to Alamos, Mexico (16th Century Colonial Town, Pueblo Magico).
There is an opportunity for members of our Club to travel down to Alamos, Mexico in Southern Sonora for the Kick Off of the Global Grant that we and nine other Rotary Clubs are supporting to improve rural healthcare in indigenous communities.  This is a weekend trip from January 31st – February 3rd or 4th.  Ellie Patterson and Tom have already signed up for the trip and we have spots for 4-6 more members.  It should be a great chance to see a Global Grant in action and enjoy this beautiful town.
A brief write-up is below, and a more detailed agenda is available and if you want full details on the Grant and Program, we would be happy to get them to you:
Join the inaugural celebration in Alamos January 31 -February 3/4, 2019!
D5500 Governor Kirk Reed & grant supporters from 10 clubs in 4 Districts and 3 countries will be there to share the fun!
Your visit will include a magical weekend visit to the 16th century colonial town (Pueblo Mágico) of Alamos. There will be plenty of time to explore the city and surroundings area as well as attend inaugural events on Friday and Saturday evenings. An optional trip to one of the indigenous Guarijío villages served by the grant will be available on Sunday.
Getting there is part of the fun. A caravan of cars will leave Tucson/Nogales on Thursday, January 31 and drive to Guaymas/San Carlos (6 hours). Thursday dinner at the Sunset Grill on the Sandy beach of San Carlos! Friday morning the caravan will continue on to Alamos (4 hours). Ride shares (carpooling) will be available.

Make Way For Books Project a Quick Success!
RCOT club members made a huge showing at Make Way for Books on Saturday.  We had over 14 Rotarians and Brett Stein’s kids and Aimee Graves' lovely Pekinese pup.  We assembled shelves and cleaned and sorted books.  We also completed some landscaping and cleaned the front entrance.  The project was completed in record time and we were done by 10AM.  A big thank you to all who helped.
The First Hike of 2019!
The hiking fellowship completed the first hike of 2019 on Saturday, January 6th and we are "officially" calling it a conditioning hike to work off the overindulgence of the holiday season!  Incoming District Governor Ellie Patterson, Roger Harwell, Jan Green, Mike Schulte, Bill Kouba and wife Gillian joined Martha and I for the quick climb up Tumamoc hill.  As always, the first half took longer than the second but it was a great way to start the year with a great group of friends.  We look forward to seeing you all on the trails!
