Presentation After the Service Sunday, March 19th

Thursday, March 16th, 2017

Please join members of the Adult Christian Education and Mission team in welcoming Nancy and Ron Rucker to CCoT Sunday, March 19th. They will be offering a presentation about the Rural Preventures project in India after the worship service in the Emerson Center parlor.

Nancy and Ron Rucker have been retired for a number of years and have traveled extensively during this period.  During their working careers, Nancy was an archivist at the local historical museum in Middlebury and Ron was College Librarian at Middlebury College.  They have lived in Middlebury since 1976 and prior to that in Ithaca, New York.

Nancy and Ron traveled for several weeks in India in 2009, at the urging of our good friend Robert Granner who divides his time between Middlebury and Kodaikanal in Tamil Nadu State.  We visited Mr. Granner at his home near Kodaikanal and he took us to some of the locations, including Poombarai, which are the focus of the health and educational initiatives of Rural Pre-Ventures Charitable Trust.  It was at his suggestion that we became involved in founding the American support arm in 2012.
