White Christmas Party & Installation Banquet for Rotaract RGV Leaders

December 12, 2022
Alta Vista Nursing Home

It has been probably more than 20 years since the Alta Vista Nursing Home project was started by our Rotary Club of Brownsville Sunrise members, Stan and Carmela Pretraitis. The purpose of this project was to bring a smile, bring Santa Claus and bring a Choir group to sing Christmas songs to the residents of this home health care center. We also had the Rotaract RGV Leaders Club from UTRGV assisting us this day. It was very moved to see the smile of each and everyone of the residents and had a small talk to say all this was for you. May the Lord give us the strength, and the love to continue with this wonderful project.
