Welcome to Meeting No. 182 of the Rotary eClub of Latitude 38 


This week's meeting material

An inspiring story from the Rotary website 'A vine idea'

Heidi Kuhn was a Rotary Youth Exchange student in Japan in 1975 and what she saw and experienced led her to reflect on the post-World War II reconciliation between that country and her native United States.   “The idea of former enemies bridging borders for peace left an impression in my heart,” she says.

More than 20 years later in 1997 Heidi Kühn founded a nonprofit called Roots of Peace that has worked to remove hundreds of thousands of land mines and other unexploded ordnance from farmland and replace them with productive fields, such as orchards and vineyards.
