Celine Brandt, teacher Mark Reimer, Emilie Jackson and Katie Fast holding the beautiful Ecuadorian scarves that Mark is selling.

It was a special morning here at the AM1250 studio, but not as special as the trip they took to Ecuador. Mark Reimer took 9 SRSS students to Ecuador for a month to work with a friend he had made in a previous trip, who is trying to make a difference in his home country. Freddy is working with young men through the sport of soccer (football as they call it) and he needs help. So, Mark is selling scarves that he bought in Ecuador for $15 a piece. They are beautiful as you can see from the picture. You can get ahold of one or more of these scarves by calling Mark at 346.1942 or stop by his house anytime and he's be glad to visit. You can also hear our conversation from this morning on the AM1250 Podcasts to the right of the screen, and one more thing -- Mark has the whole story on his blog: manitobatoecuador.wordpress.com.  It was an inspiring morning. Thanks you guys!!
