Bob Cairns would like the club to be aware that Ralph Munro, former Secretary of State (Washington) and dedicated Rotarian has fallen ill. What began as a collapsed lung led to 2 surgeries and several setbacks. His recovery has been slow and wrought with concern but ultimately optimistic. The family hopes that he'll be able to return home soon.

Bob and Chris Cairns traveled with Ralph Munro in Africa very recently. They worked side-by-side providing humanitarian service through Rotary.
