Partners and Partnerships

PatanaLife has its interesting twists and turns.  We have things that we are normally involved with at home in the midst of our lives here.  It is often interesting, how some of these same life situations can occur when we travel.

On our first trip to Thailand in 2003, we met a man named Patana.  He is the founding president of the Rotary Club in Chiang Rai and is currently President of the Chambers of Commerce for 10 districts in northeastern Chiang Rai Province as well as President of the board of Directors for the Montessori School in Chiang Rai.

We look forward to deepening our relationship with Patana as well as the many other Thai and foreign people we have met in Chiang Rai. 

One of the exciting things about this move is knowing so many people in this city.  Many times when people move from one place to another, especially when greater distance is involved, it means starting over.  Meeting people, establishing relationships and building a network - a support system - for life.  Traveling to Thailand these last six years has given us the opportunity to do that!
