Mr. Robertson returns to Panama in 2014 – Call for Donations of New Reading Glasses
Mr. Robertson is on track for two trips to Panama in 2014 to serve as an adult sponsor for a High School student trip and a College student trip. The dates of both trips are March 15-22 and June 13-21. Both trips will take him to the villages of Chepo, Chiman, and Union Santena, with possible trek to the Wounaan village of Meje. While there he will conduct his normal visits with the elderly members of these villages and provide reading glasses as a gift of goodwill and an example of doing his ‘Duty to God’, in showing love and compassion for those who are less fortunate.
If you wish to help Mr. Robertson he will be accepting donations of NEW only, reading glasses for both men and women. These can be purchased very economically at either Sam’s Club or Costco in packages of three. Other locations that are very reasonable on prices are the Dollar Tree store. Glasses come in various strengths and the most common that Mr. Robertson provides are (+1.75, +2.00, +2.25, +2.50, +2.75, and +3.00). The greatest need is in the 2.25 through 2.75 range. Mr. Robertson will be attending most of the meetings in January, February, and March, including the January and March campouts. You can also arrange for a pickup by e-mailing him at allen.robertson or phoning at 913-945-0068.
