Where's Jackson?

Thursday night, after the final day of the clinic, the entire group eats together for the last time.  On this occasion, we heard a few words from Carl Sakovits, Joe England, the Mayor of Nandaime, and Luis Velasquez.

Carl pointed out the hard work of the NEVOSH board, who work all year to make a smooth mission happen for that week.

Joe thanked everybody for their hard work and dedication.

Kevin Somerville read the patient totals for everyone's benefit.

The mayor of Nandaime expressed his sincere gratitude on behalf of the people of Nandaime for the work we had done during the week.

Luis Velasquez translated for the Mayor, presented NEVOSH travelers with a silver pendant showing a map of Nicaragua, made in his shop in Masaya.  He then let everyone know that he has no desire to be in politics. 


Bruce Fischer regaled us all with two a capella songs.  The NEVOSH singers joined in for the chorus of "Don't Cry for Me Argentina".

Carl presented Rocco and Lara with a hand carved angel to honor the nuptials.

Joe and Carl officially handed over leadership of the mission to the Minister of R&R, Rocco Robilotto.
