Service Projects

San Luis Rio Colorado, Sonora, Mexico

These pictures are from our participation in an international service project in San Luis Rio Colorado, Sonora, Mexico. The project was led by West Calaveras Rotary Club. Sherri Reusch (wife or our club member John Reusch) is president of the West Calaveras club. In addition to our club’s financial participation, club members Gary Gillis, Don Barry, John Reusch and Ken Steele worked at the project during the period 7 – 11 January 2015.  The project provided a compressed-earth brick-making machine, reverse osmosis water treatment equipment, and  Spanish-English dictionaries for area school children. Our work included installing utilities, equipment and the roof on a building for a future water and ice store; assisting with the manufacture of bricks, laying block for a demonstration building.

NOTE that West Calaveras with this project had the first project approved and the first project completed in our District under the new Global Grants process.
