Four Holmen Rotarians recently made their third trip to Lima Peru. This time in addition to working on the club's ongoing clean water projects, Holmen Rotarians helped deliver Christmas presents to children in the poor villages courtesy of the fundraising efforts of fellow Rotarian Justin Bodin.
A video compilation by Holmen Rotary member Steve Johnston and his company the WOW Factory. The video shows many of the successful projects of our Rotary club including Peru Biosand Water Filters, Student Exchange, Holmen Police K-9 unit, E-cycle, Halfway Park Clock, and Holmen High School Interact Club. We meet 7am Wednesdays at Holmen Village Hall. Come join us. We need your help to change our community and our world.
Come join us at Holmen Area Rotary where we help with projects like these to make our community and our world a better place.
Holmen Rotarians who were in Lima, Peru this last week to check the status of past and ongoing Biosand Water Filter projects were able to parlay their trip into a preliminary meeting on what they hope will be their next clean water project. Holmen Rotary representatives met with Juan Simon, a representative of Water Missions International. We are in the process of submitting a grant request to Rotary International in the amount of $70,000. The grant would fund a centralized water filtration and distribution system, as well as 100 latrines for the community of 2,400 people.
Holmen Rotary provides water and sanitation facilities to the rehabilitation of an old dining hall, which itself was a Rotary project some 75 years ago.
