In 2007, we traveled to France. Our first river cruise from St Petersburg to Moscow, was in 2009. In 2011, our chapter went on a river cruise to Netherlands. We traveled to Ireland in 2013 and took another river cruise from Amsterdam to Vienna in 2014. In 2015, we traveled to Greece.

In 1994 Donna Webb presented a program at one of our chapter’s dinner meetings explaining a volunteer experience in the Tijuana, Mexico area that was through a non-profit organization, “Los Niños,” meaning “The Children.” As a result of Donna’s presentation, our chapter subsequently elected to become involved in the program for several years by supporting it financially and by sending several groups of workers down to Los Niños to help build schools, lay concrete, and construct terraces to landscape the schoolyards. From 1996 to 2006 we sent work groups down to Mexico every other year.
