Three members of Franklin's Rotary Club joined three other area Rotarians earlier this month on a trip to Nicaragua to complete a desperately needed service project. As part of a six-person contingent, Franklin Rotarians traveled to Esteli, Nicaragua, to take part in the early construction stages of a foot bridge that would provide access across a river that became impassable during the height of the rainy season. After completion of the bridge, the once isolated villagers will be able to get to medical support, school, and be able to bring their produce and crafted goods to local markets so they can make at least a basic subsistence.
