District Governor Steve Stanfield of Americus visited the Blakely Rotary Club this past week. He met with the club's directors and committee chairmen during his visit and discussed Rotary service and this year's Rotary International theme, "Lead The Way."

The Blakely Rotary Club in turn is making a contribution to one of DG Stanfield's pet projects, the Wheelchair Foundation, for the purchase of 50 wheelchairs.

The Wheelchair Foundation provides matching

grant dollars to Rotary Clubs for the purchase of wheelchairs that are distributed to needy individuals

in third world countries who would otherwise have no means of personal mobility.
