Plan now to attend a Cannon Falls Rotary Heritage celebration. Not a fund raiser but a fun raiser. Fun will be the order of the evening. Dress in your favorite 20's and 30's styles.

Sylvia Allen was our speaker this week. She shared an amazing story of helping orphans in Uganda.

In 2003, Sylvia Allen went with a non-profit organization on a humanitarian trip to Uganda, Africa. While she was there, she was asked by Geofrey Kawuma, head of the Mbiriizi Primary School, to be the school’s Grandmother. With 1,000 children in the school, of which 250 are orphans due to the AIDS crisis, she was honored to accept the responsibility. Out of this Sylvia’s Children was born, Inc., a 501(c)3 organization dedicated to improving the lives of her ‘grandchildren’; to give the children a fighting chance.

Her presentation description – “You’re an orphan --- you live in the village of Mbirizi, Uganda, Africa --- your parents have died. Who will take care of you? ----With Sylvia’s Children the orphans attending the Mbirizi Advanced Primary School have a safety net.” sylviaschildren.com Sylvia, a member of the Rotary Club of North St. Paul-Maplewood- Oakdale, has raised over $1,000,000 to fund this effort which she founded it in 2003.
