District Trip   
 
The District International trip was initially slated to head to Cusco Peru from March 24 to April 3, 2017. The project the District project was going take on was to be combined with a club trip that was slated to go to Cusco the following week. The two trips have now been combined into one, to maximize resources, and will travel to Cusco Peru on March 31, 2017.

Once arriving in Cusco, the team will return to Huayllay, the site of the District’s last project, where they will participate in work activities that will complete this year long project. When the District team began this project in 2016, in partnership with the Rotary Club Julio Delgado Cusco and the community leaders of the community, they were involved in the backbreaking work of the beginning stages of the construction which involved foundation work. For the past approximate 10 months, the local Rotary Club and the community of Huayllay have continued the work and when the District team heads down this year, it will be to work on the finishing touches of this community building!
