On Tuesday, October 25th, 2 large Sea Vans departed the W/NP warehouse carrying material goods for Nicaragua. The logistics of this shipment are made possible by the very generous support of several local corporations; Moodie Trucking, Onvoy Corporation, Ferrell Gas and Wisconsin Lift Truck. Without the support of these generous corporations, Wis/Nic Partners would be very hard pressed, if not impossible, to fulfill their mission in Nicaragua. These corporations are vital to our ability to move material goods to our Partner Country and they deserve our very special thanks for their contributions.
The weather was a little cold and wet, but we all felt it was well worth the efforts to see the warehouse go from full to empty, with the exception of 11 pallets that will have to wait for next time.
Getting ready and packing Friday/Saturday made for smooth loading on Sunday.
Thanks everyone - it's a team effort all the way down the line to make this happen.

|Library activities |
|Pictured below are Liz and Jordan, students from UAM University who have volunteered to help with the Sherin Bowen Library at the Managua Office.
They are working with our staff to put a together a program that anybody can easily follow who would like to volunteer either here at the office, or at any of the library project locations. While working on the development planning of the program, they also had time to play some card games and puzzles with the kids. The kids were delighted to play with them and were already asking if they are coming back!
Please send any puzzles/games/books you might have to the W/NP office:
Room 129 Nelson Hall, UWSP, Stevens Point, WI 54481
715-346-4702 (and we will get them to the libraries)
