Scholarship update

More great news today. Ewelina Markiewicz, the daughter of one of the founder members of Sopot R.C. has been awarded a one year scholarship by the Georgia Rotary Scholarship Program. She will be attending Valdosta State University in Georgia (www.valdosta.edu) which is located approximately half way between Atlanta in Georgia and Tampa in Florida. Our congratulations to Ewelina on her success.

The Sopot “House”

In conjunction with the Sopot Town Council, we and our partner club Hanover Balhof, are joining them in a special project to provide accommodation for the homeless, ex-prisoners and unfortunates. The town council are providing the land for the project together with all the materials for the building. The building itself will be constructed by the inmates who are going to be using it. The project will also have rooms available for tourists to rent in the summer season so hopefully the final project will become self financing.

Our involvement in the project is to provide all the furniture and fittings including those for the kitchens. We will need a lot of support for this very worthy venture.
