Anne Marie – textile artist. Shared and offered to produce Mandalas for children, if anyone is interested. She has given many to Rotaracts and were given out at the Mobile Library. Sue Bishop has ideas for production – need follow up.
Richard Foss was our guest speaker tonight to give us all the details about his successful 15 water projects in the NE Bali, Amed area. He said “This is a very labor intensive project to get water tanks, concrete and supplies up to the villages for installation. He has had over 1,000 people involved in the first 6 projects. As an example of how difficult these projects can be, it can take 4 hours to make just 1 trip up the mountain to a site.”
Lessons Learned: Have fun! It it wasn’t fun they wouldn’t do it.
Cost per village US$500-1,200 (depending on if a well was needed to be dug)
The club gave rousing THANK YOU to the Colorado Springs Interquest Rotary Club for all their support of these Balinese water project that help the local people so much.
