Water Filter Presentation to Ajijic (Mexico) Rotary Club

 
Bruce Phelps and Sandra Wicks recently visited their home in Ajijic, Mexico (south of Guadalajara on Lake Chapala) and, while there, attended the Ajijic Rotary Club.  As usual, Sandra brought along a sample Sawyer bucket water filter to show the club.  This is the water filter AER has helped distribute in the outskirts of Puerto Vallarta in the past.
 
The Ajijic Rotary Club asked to have a formal presentation about the water filters, since they might want to add water filters to the array of assistance they are already providing to the surrounding community.
 
Unfortunately, Bruce was sick the day of the presentation, but Sandra explained the assembly and maintenance of the water filter to the club and showed a PowerPoint on the distribution of water filters, in conjunction with the Vancouver (Washington) Sunrise Rotary Club, in January in Nayarit State of Mexico to migrant Huichol indians.  The Ajijic club was very appreciative of the opportunity to learn about the very cost-effective way to get clean water to people who otherwise would have to purchase purified water or just drink bad water.
