Houston Rotarians Return Home from Haiti – My Fox Houston
HOUSTON – Members of the Rotary Club of Houston service team who were stranded in Haiti following Tuesday’s devastating quake are back at home Saturday morning.
Rotarian members, Michelle Bohreer (President), Vern Swisher, Vicki Brentin, Genelle Edwards, Suzanne Edwards, and Surpris Cherazard, arrived at Bush Intercontinental Airport just after midnight Saturday.
The group was greeted by friends, family and media as they shared their stories of hope, tragedy and survival.
The group traveled to Haiti with plans to dig wells in and around Port-au-Prince, but those plans were changed when the earthquake struck less than an hour after their plane landed.
The rotary club thanked the rescue team headed by Todd Zucker and John Brentin and the many people who worked around the clock for the last 72 hours to secure their safe passage back home.
A statement from the organization also thanked Congressmen Ted Poe and John Culberson, their staff and countless others who provided invaluable information and assistance in coordinating the rescue.
