Life During War

The Mansfield Rotary Club discussed a recent article titled “Life During War” by Wen Huang in their monthly “Rotary” magazine about the humanitarian efforts of Rotary International in war torn Ukraine.  Rotary is working hand-in-hand with Lions Club International and other service clubs to get supplies and support to the refugees coming into Poland from the Ukraine cities of  Kyiv, Kerson, and Kharkiv.  

There are two million refugees consisting of mostly women and children.  Most of the men, old and young, are staying to protect their homes and fight the invading Russian troops.  If anyone is interested in reading Wen’s article go to to read part I of the article.  It sure made the group proud of the financial help we’ve already sent and to be Rotarians!

Members of the small but hardy group that bared the freezing rain are shown seated L to R: John Adams, Dudley Glenn, Teri Byrd, Robert Burgess, and Lisa Lobrano Burson (Photographer Van Reech now shown).  The next meeting is on 2/15/23 at the Mansfield Female College Museum for lunch.
