Why Water?


 

Our weekly meetings take place at a location overlooking West Traverse Bay, a sparkling gem that is interconnected to 20% of the worlds fresh water supply. Access to this resource is something easily taken for granted.

Each year, 1.5 to 2 million people die from water-related disease

Over 1.2 billion people are without access to safe water

In 2010 our club membership took a stand and, as part of its vision statement, declared its commitment to service that will improve families and communities internationally through life-sustaining fresh water.

Through collaborative partnerships with local organizations, we work to increase appreciation for the resource we have through educational programs and hands-on service projects. Additionally, we have formed a second 'World Community Service' project that will bring safe, fresh water to the lives of families in Honduras.
