On November 2, the Day of the Dead, Rotary scholarship students from the Chapala high school had created a memorial altar in honor of Paul Harris.  In line with the Mexican common conviction that the souls of the dead return to earth for a one day visit, the altar, right outside the church, was laden with Mexican traditionally assorted items to welcome his departed spirit and honor his life. All arranged in a colorful display of brightly colored paper cut-outs, seasonal sugar coated breads, candles and votive lights, platters of food, and beverages. Complete with a washing bowl, a bar of soap, a towel and a mirror to freshen himself up. A framed photo of Paul Harris was shown in the background.
