Randy Raphael helped establish the Ancaster AM Rotary Club 30 years ago. He is a 3x Paul Harris Fellow and a major Rotary Foundation supporter. Randy spoke about his trip to see the Gorillas in Rwanda. Rwanda is a small country nestled between Tanzania and Congo. He spoke about attending the Kigali Genocide Memorial in Kigali. The genocide lasted 100 days in 1994. 
He visited the rural areas taking pictures of the locals. The highlight though was visiting Volcanoes National Park to look for gorilla families. They found one and Randy showed several pictures of the gorilla who seemed unimpressed with the humans. They also saw several “golden monkeys” and visited the Dian Fossey Museum. Interestingly, a permit to see the gorillas, costs $US 1500 per person! Security was very tight during the tour in light of the country’s past history.
