Dear Club President,
We are very much pleased to extend to your Club our invitation to attend our Fourth Ecuador Project Fair, to be held at the J. W. Marriott Hotel in Quito, Ecuador on Friday, October 19th, and Saturday, October 20th, 2007.
A project fair is one of the Rotary programs which enables Clubs to find partners for developing international humanitarian projects.  During this two days event, visiting Rotarians will have the opportunity to meet Rotarians of our local Clubs and discuss their necessities and  projects, trying to reach an agreement for a joint work on them.  The personal relation and friendship established between Rotarians and Clubs of other countries with ours, will make it possible to materialize many projects to solve the needs of Ecuador’s poor communities.
Please consider this event as an opportunity for your Club to begin  or expand its work in international humanitarian projects.
For this fair we are offering the possibilty for visiting rotatians, who wish to do so,  to stay without cost at local rotarian homes and greatly enjoy the traditional ecuadorean hospitality.
