Rotary Grant to Help Clinic in Sister City Puerto Vallarta

Rotary Club Santa Bárbara North joined with Santa Barbara/Puerto Vallarta Sister City Committee on a grant of more than $5,000 Rotary Dedicated District Fund to provide two items of physical-therapy equipment to a regional nonprofit rehabilitation clinic in Puerto Vallarta.

The equipment will be used for physical therapy of children and adults to relieve pain and accelerate the self-healing process, getting the body back to a healthy pain-free state. More than 700 patients with limited resources will benefit from the therapy annually.

Santa Barbara and Puerto Vallarta have enjoyed an active Sister City relationship for more than 40 years and have twice been awarded national recognition as best overall sister city program for a city with a population 50,000 to 100,000.

The awards were presented in 2014 and 2016 at the annual Sister Cities International conference. 

The Rotary Club of Santa Barbara North was chartered in 1959 and continues to serve the Santa Barbara Community and international arena by our dedicated members. To learn more about the club and membership, visit www.rotaryclubsbnorth.org.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
