An International Service Life

BY PETER GARRETT
@ VOL 27 ON APR 27, 2018

I want to present a story about the excitement of exploring the international scene both from my own personal and professional perspective and from the point of view of Rotary’s international service. I will start with pictures from my youth in Nigeria, through my adventures in the Bahamas and Bermuda (where I met my Winslow wife), through to what was once known as "Our Peaceful Russian Connection” with the city of Kotlas (my first venture with the support of the Waterville Rotary Club), and then a variety of water and other projects in the Dominican Republic, Nicaragua, Ecuador and Guatemala. There will also be a photo from the Rotary International Conference in Singapore where I met my match, a man who played the Chinese violin (I play the Stradivarius variety). I will end with a garden scene with me and my grandson.
