The Log needs your help!

The next issue of The Log is in the works, and, as always, we need contributions from Circumnavigators.

Here are some things you can do:

Do you have a good photo for our photo spread or, perhaps, for the cover? The photo spread will have a “faces” theme, such as the one taken here by Roger Baker on a recent trip to India. If you have a good shot of someone you have encountered on your travels, please submit it for consideration. It does not have to be recent. Send your photo by email attachment to club@circumnavigators.org.

Regarding Roger’s photo, it was taken in Varanasi. Notice the pre-photo gratuity that the gentleman is holding his hand!

Let us know about your travels. Our All Over the Map column features the recent travels of our members. Send us a line or two about where you have traveled or where you are going. Photos of members “on the road” are welcome.

Also, the Scuttlebutt column reports news about members. Let us know if you have moved to a new location, gotten a degree, written a book, been honored by an organization. Photos welcome.

Do you have a travel story to share? Story ideas from members are always encouraged. Let us know if you have a story that can be developed into a piece for The Log. Please do not send completed stories. We will work with you to put it together.

Washington DC Chapter’s 30th Anniversary and Chinese New Year Celebration

On February 28, members and guests enjoyed a delicious lunch at Duangrat’s Thai restaurant in Northern Virginia. Four past Chapter Presidents attended (in the front row (from right to left) are Ellen Parke, Ray Olson, Anne Kennedy, and Jim Whalen).  C. Bill Billings spoke at the lunch about his experience as part of a team of Rotarians who built a suspension foot bridge across the Blue Nile gorge in a remote part of Ethiopia. It was a terrific way to celebrate the Washington DC Chapter’s 30th Anniversary!
