The Stryker Rotary Club learned first-hand about efforts to fight world hunger many years ago. In 1947, at the age of 17, Jim Miller, a resident of Bryan, traveled from the United States to Poland on a boat used to transport cattle. On this trip the boat was used to transport Draft Horses to war torn areas of Poland following World War II. The American Draft Horses would be used by farmers in Poland. Jim was working through a program sponsored by The Church of the Brethren. This program is still in existence today and is known as “Heifer International”. Their mission continues to be ending world hunger and poverty, and caring for the earth. Pictured are guest speaker Jim Miller (Right) and Stryker Rotarian Ken Culler.
