By Marcello A. Blake, Co-Chair of 2018 Uniendo America Project Fair
Greetings from Belize!
On behalf of Districts 4240 and 4250, we would like to invite you to Uniendo America Project Fair 2018 to be held in Belize City, from January 25 to 27, 2018. Project fairs are the perfect opportunity to immerse yourself in international service and find a project that meets your club’s service goals.
The phrase Uniendo America means Uniting America. Uniendo America is the longest running project fair and is going into it’s 25th year. The fair takes place annually and rotates between various Central American countries. Over the years, international visitors have learned about more that 2,000 local projects from the region.
This is the third time the fair will be held in Belize. All ten of the Belize clubs will be represented at the fair, as well as representatives from 100 other Rotary clubs in Central America will be showcasing projects in all of Rotary’s areas of focus.
The fair gives Central American Rotary clubs the opportunity to share their service efforts to potential international partners. Meeting face to face helps create lasting friendships and facilitates the implementation of new projects. During your time in Belize, you will learn about our culture, our communities and get a firsthand look at the local needs. Come learn about our region, make new friends, and take part in community service efforts!
The fair will be hosted at the Best Western Plus Belize Biltmore Plaza Hotel. To take advantage of reduced rates, you must reserve no later than December 31, 2017. Register for the fair online and contact me with any questions.
Belize has some of the most beautiful cayes, beaches and diving spots in the world. The beautiful island of San Pedro is a little more than an hour away by boat, or a quick trip by plane. Here, you’ll be able to kick back and enjoy the wonderful Caribbean Sea, eat some of the most delicious seafood cuisine, and take a quick trip by boat to any of the most spectacular dive sites that Belize has to offer.
We look forward to welcoming you to Belize and the 2018 Uniendo America Project Fair!
