On Thursday, June 29th Past-President Rob Samouce gave the invocation and pledge. Past Sgt. At Arms Robbie Selby then collected happy bucks. Rob then introduced our guest speaker, Mick Moore of the North Naples Rotary Club. Mick, owner and proprietor of the very excellent Turtle Club gave a great presentation on the Tanzanian Water Project that our club contributed $5,000 to this last Rotary Year. The 100K plus project involved matching grants from District, RI and 5 Clubs in Maine in addition to North Naples and our Club participation. The project involves solar powered water wells and distribution lines in rural Tanzania and will bring clean water to around 500 families along a back road in the Tanzania outback. The project should be completed and up and running by the end of this year and then a phase II costing around 35K is contemplated to extend the distribution lines to serve more needed.
Mark your calendars, unless otherwise stated, all our meetings are at Hyatt House Naples.
