Palo Alto University Rotary was pleased to welcome Rotary District Governor Joe Hamilton and his wife, Kathy, to our October 5th morning program.  During their visit, Joe and Kathy reinforced the core vision of Rotary, "peace through service", by introducing the greater Rotary network's latest initiatives.  First, Joe and Kathy promoted next year's District Conference, which will take place March 21-24 in Napa, which will give Rotarians a chance to convene, share ideas, and get inspired about future service projects.  Joe also shared his recent trip to Guatemala with Faces of Hope where a medical team performed corrective surgery on children born with cleft palates- like many Rotary service projects, this trip not only helped these children, but gave him a tremendous sense of fulfillment. Finally, Kathy introduced a new program to collect baby blankets to donate to new mothers, who may not be able to afford baby supplies, and our chapter generously donated to the cause.  Overall, Joe and Kathy Hamilton reminded us why we joined Rotary: for fellowship, but more importantly, to serve the less fortunate across the world.
