Thanks for the opportunity to share our adventure at the
Rotary International Convention in Hamburg, Germany!
The pictures I shared at last week’s meeting are only
the tip of the iceberg that is ROTARY!
Here Deborah and I are cruising down the Rhine River somewhere near a little town of Boppart, our final stop before flying home from Frankfurt! 

So much to experience, and yes, Rotary does connect the world!

Yours in Rotary,

Joshua’s Story
June 1st 2008
On a warm spring day in June during a family gathering at our home Joshua slipped out of sight for just a few short moments. He was quickly discovered in the backyard pool, unconscious and unresponsive. Family immediately started CPR and he was life flighted to Children’s Hospital in Omaha. After three days of lying by his side in the hospital Joshua was taken off life support and passed away shortly there after. We know Joshua would have been a great young man if given the opportunity. Therefore we decided to create the Joshua Collingsworth Memorial Foundation in his honor and from that day forward we committed to solving the problem of drowning. Joshua’s legacy will continue through the education of parents and children to keep them safe in and around water with new, innovative, safety education training programs and water awareness campaigns.
“Too Brief Here On Earth, But His Impact Will Last Forever…”
In loving memory of our beloved son Joshua,
Kathy & Blake Collingsworth
