Haitian Update: Bellaire and Houston Rotarians Airlifted Home / Rotary Prayer Vigil
Our own Surpris Cherazard and those from the Rotary Club of Houston (Michelle Bohreer, Vern Swisher, Vicki Brentin, Genelle Edwards, and Suzanne Edwards) landed safely in Houston late Friday night after a charter rescue flight picked them up on the Dominican Republic side of the island earlier in the day.
Channel 11 News featured the stranded Rotarians in its Thursday and Friday night newscasts, together with a prayer vigil held at Restoration Global Fellowship church, where Surpris Cherazard is the Director of Haitian Missions.

South Texas Rotary District 5890 extends special thanks to Congressman Ted Poe, Congressman John Culberson, and Congresswomen Sheila Jackson-Lee for support and assistance in the return of our volunteers.
