Support water, sanitation, and hygiene efforts on World Water Day
World Water Day is held every 22 March to highlight the importance of clean water. This UN observance is also used to advocate for the sustainable management of freshwater resources. This year’s World Water Day will focus on accelerating solutions to urgent water and sanitation needs around the world. In Lebanon, for example, all the country’s Rotary clubs united behind a global grant-funded project to bring clean drinking water to nearly every school in the country in partnership with other organizations and Lebanese government ministries. And in Ecuador, the Rotary Club of Guaranda, Bolívar, worked with community leaders in the village of Cochapamba and with a regional water agency to build a system that now provides clean drinking water for 133 families.
Give to Help Others
There are only a couple weeks left of our Foundation's Annual Fund Drive. 30 of our 40 members have contributed to our fund drive, and we have raised $7,600+ to use to do good in our communities and the world during our upcoming Rotary year which starts July 1. 
Our goal is to have 100% participation. If you are one of the ten members who have not yet contributed, please consider making a contribution before the end of March. 
Bring your contribution to the meeting this week, or snail-mail it this month to: 941 Huntington Ave #157, Wisconsin Rapids, WI 54494.
