Project Peru -- Ralph Gunderson reported that he and Bill Thimke recently returned from a visit to the Project Peru program. While there they purchased soy beans, a freezer, stuff for the dental clinic, and a photocopier for the community library -- all with funds donated by Oshkosh Southwest Rotary. He noted that the Soy Cow continues to feed 3,000 to 4,000 people each week. One day while they were there and walking into City Hall, a band was playing to show appreciation for the efforts of the Oshkosh Clubs.
