Scottsbluff Rotary Club approves second sister club relationship

A short visit to Scottsbluff and Gering in May of 2011 by a Rotary Club from Turkey has resulted in the second sister club relationship for the local Rotary Club. Once the five couples from Samsun, Turkey were hosted by the local group for an afternoon luncheon and evening social, club Member Stan Haas says a special relationship grew.

Haas and his wife Gail accepted an invitation to Turkey this past fall and in addition to what he called a "delightful visit" with his hosts came the invitation for the two clubs to be sister clubs.

The local Rotary board approved the proposal in late November and the two clubs are now considering projects they can do together. The local Rotary Club already has a sister city relationship with a club in Vera Cruz, Mexico and has sent medical supplies and vehicles to that area as a result.
