El Tuito club finishes Refugio project

Posted By Ken Walker

The Rotary Club of El Tuito, a club we have helped with several projects (more details here), was near completion of the addition of a lunch shelter (with lots of other uses) when they showed me around in November 2016. The blue tarp shelter was what they had before the El Tuito club took this on. The school has two classrooms where 85 junior high students attend in the morning. High school runs in the same rooms in the afternoon.

My guide was Ignacio Palomera, a charter member and past president of the El Tuito club. Ignacio is the key leader in these projects. He organized the Rotary Club of El Tuito after running many such projects on his own over recent years. These images enlarge if you click on them.

Days after I left, the roof went on. This picture, which came in from Ignacio shortly after my visit shows the roof in place, only the tile floor and the electrical installation left to do. Those Rotarians get things done! Compare that to the blue tent that served these students before.


Ignacio has now sent a current photo (July 2017) showing the fully finished project including tiled floors, finishing touches and even signage recognizing the District 5020 clubs that supported this project.
