Rotary Club Thanks!

Last night Baobab board member Nadine Powers and myself brought two of our youngest drumming participants to the meeting of the Rotary club of Ottawa (Nepean/Kanata) where we made a presentation. Arman and Shyandra, both 9 years old have enjoyed time at our Rhythm Trek Drum Camp in the summer, as well as our ROOTS classes and school workshops here at the Baobab Studio. These programs are supported in part by an annual and generous donation from the Rotary Club.  The kids talked about their involvement in our programs and presented art work they did and speeches that they wrote. They both were extremely polite and articulate in their presentations and during the dinner segment of the evening Everyone was charmed by them! We are very grateful to the Rotary Club for making it possible for us to present these kinds of programs for young children. A special thanks to our contact at the Rotary,  Liliane Lalonde-McKennirey who is a long time Baobab friend and supporter,  and who has worked through the Rotary club for more than ten years to bring donations of goods and services to the village  of Dagbamete in Ghana, a place close to our hearts!
