3 September 2012 — Water, Water…But Not Everywhere

MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT

It’s almost time for our Third Annual DANCE FOR THE CHILDREN. After you have enjoyed this week’s program, please click on the PROJECTS tab near the top of this screen and check out the videos from the first two, as well as the information about this year’s 15 September big event.

Also, please enjoy our SEPTEMBER 2012 newsletter, courtesy of hard-working Club PR Chair, bulletin editor, and brand-new Rotarian Patty Givant.

The Drive for Twenty-Five, when we Barter for a Charter…is underway!

 

THIS WEEK’S PROGRAM

 

 

 

If you are reading this here on the Internet and you find yourself thirsty, you can probably step away from the computer, go turn a tap somewhere only a few steps away, and enjoy a drink of clean water.

That’s not true in many places on this planet. In an effort to change that, and make clean water accessible to everyone, Rotary International has made water and sanitation one of its six suggested areas of focus. This week’s program presents a wide range of Rotary Club efforts to provide clean water to those in need, with the hope that our E-Club will find a good project in the near future. Please take a look at as much as you have time for. (Some are more inspirational than explanatory, but we’ll work on specifics!)

Here’s a project involving Rotarians in California.  Vocational Training Team Increases Pump Efficiency.

Finally this week, the E-Club President with the…um…interesting sense of humor notes that the Rotary Club of Calabasas presented one of their projects at the District 5260 Conference in June of 2012: assembling Water Pasteurization Indicators.  Our E-Club, in partnership with Calabasas and perhaps others, could create an ongoing international project which the  E-Club President with the…um…interesting sense of humor should be called “Makin’ WAPI.”  We’ll get more information soon.

  1. I took it for granted that clean fresh water would be available to me whenever I wanted, and those videos opened my eyes. Very informative.

  2. The water filter containers delivered by Rotarians to households in Contega, Nicaragua are a simple way to protect the health of people in outlying communities. This was a very worthwhile project.
