It was a combined meeting of the two Rotary clubs in Federico Westphalen held in the BBQ area of the local aquatic centre. The celebration was for 3 Rotarians' birthdays and the visit of Des and I from down under, with about 40 people present, including Claudia and Rosa. There were no lady partners, but the Barrel Rotary Club in Fred West has women members, one of whom was also at the dinner. I was invited to give a five minute talk on 'my life’ and Des fielded questions about Adelaide and Australia.
Past District Governor Alfonso Bakof and his son Alex, who interpreted for the members, invited us to visit his Poly Tank manufacturing business, which is one of the biggest companies in Frederico Westphalen.
