Local Rotary Experiences Korea

WARWICK, RI – The Warwick Rotary recently held their weekly meeting and welcomed the Korean Spirit and Culture Promotion Project for a thrilling presentation. Warwick Rotary was also joined by members of the Cranston Rotary and experienced their largest crowd to date at Chelo’s on Post Road, their weekly meeting host.

Korean Spirit and Culture Promotion Project (KSCPP) is a worldwide organization that both promotes and educates people on Korean culture and history. Not only to local civic groups but KSCPP is also active in publishing and distributing materials on Korea to individuals and institutions. Kyungwon Pak and Younhee Shin represented KSCPP at the Warwick Rotary meeting. These ladies dressed in traditional Korean attire and also provide a small Korean dessert to each attendee. Korea remains an unknown to many people in the world. While the aftermath of the Korean War left Korea divided and in the throes of poverty, the resilience of the Korean people has enabled South Korea to possess the 12th largest economy in the world.

Ed McDonough, President-Elect of Warwick Rotary, organized the visit by KSCPP. “It was a great event that helped bring in one of our largest crowds. I was very impressed when they discussed their technological advances such as refrigerators that can sense when the eggs are low and can directly reorder some,” McDonough said.

Warwick Rotary meets Thursdays at Chelo’s on Post Road near the airport. New members are always welcome.
