Water Filter Grant to Rotary Clubs in Mexico

Posted by Sandra Wicks on Jul 31, 2017
Sandra Wicks was recently at her house in Ajijic, Mexico (south of Guadalajara on Lake Chapala) and had the opportunity to address the Ajijic Rotary Club and the Chapala Sunrise Club.  She showed and explained the Sawyer water filters our club has delivered to communities on the Pacific coast of Mexico, using Puerto Vallarta as a base. Then she showed the PowerPoint slide show about our club's most recent deliveries of filters, after which several people commented that it was the best presentation on water solutions they had seen at their club. The Chapala Sunrise Club is now ready to partner on future water filter projects in their area and several people have ordered water filters for distribution.  The pictures below are from the presentations to those two Rotary Clubs.  In addition to sharing about our Rotary work, we were invited to participate in some social events with the local Rotarians. It's always nice to combine service with Rotary companionship.
