Back to school (building) in Vietnam
Rotary Club chapters in Rockland County and other parts of the country have pledged thousands of dollars to help build schools in poor, rural areas of Vietnam. On Sunday, the members of the group my father and I are traveling with went to Dalat to check out a Catholic school that is nearing completion.
The Rotary Club of Spring Valley has given more than $20,000 to the Dominican Sisters to build this school. Rotarians Howard Goldin (center, in navy blue shirt) and Ed Frank (on his right, hands together), who are also members of the Vietnam Veterans of America Chapter 333, started the process during their trip here in 2006.
Today, Howard and Ed are taking us to another possible school site in the Long Xuyen area. Stay tuned for more news about that.
