Celina Rotarian's trip to Costa Rica an eye-opening event
By William Kincaid
COSTA RICA - Celina Rotarians and other local volunteers recently procured miracles for 65 poor people living in Nicoya, Costa Rica - the gift of sight.

The Rotary clubs of St. Marys, Wapakoneta and New Bremen/New Knoxville also chipped in for the medical mission. [More]
