McMinnville Breakfast Rotary Club members have made a grueling 112-hour journey to Namibia, South Africa and back.Making the trip across the world were Pat Bigbee, Neal Cox, Rayah Kirby, Emily Phillips, Katherine Denton, Dave Messina and Rachel Killebrew.“It was wonderful,” said Killebrew. “I love animals and animals rule there. I took plenty of pictures of us tending to the baboon cages, feeding the carnivores and other animals, and sawing logs for ladders for the baboons.”Killebrew completed a bucket list item.“I got to kiss a cheetah,” she said.
