Richard Foss was our guest speaker tonight to give us all the details about his successful 15 water projects in the NE Bali area.  He said “This is a very labor intensive project to get tanks, concrete and supplies up to the villages.  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.”

SpeakerRichLessons Learned: Have fun!  It it wasn’t fun they wouldn’t do it.
