Clean Water

Jennifer Demar joined us to talk about her nonprofit corporation, Guatemala Service Projects Inc.  The nonprofit exists to provide resources to impoverished people in Guatemala.  Based in Oconomowoc, they plan, organize and implement service projects that improve the health or literacy of Guatemalan children and families, with one or two trips planned annually to carry-out their mission.  Jennifer's initial exposure to Guatemala came in 2000 and 2001 when she traveled to the 2nd poorest country in the Western hemisphere for the adoption of her two children.  When her children grew old enough to travel back to Guatemala, the family returned to deliver and install 22 bunk beds for families who had no beds.  The family was so moved by the many needs of families in Guatemala that they now return annually. 
 

Some examples of health improvements that the Guatemala Service Project organization has funded include installing high-efficiency wood-burning stoves that vent outside the home, as well as installing 10-year water filters.

LakeWalk for Cancer

The 2018 ProHealth LakeWalk for Cancer will launch from Fowler Park Saturday, May 5.  Oconomowoc is fortunate to have a state-of-the-art cancer center.  The LakeWalk is a fundraiser in support of the center.  The LakeWalk also is a great way to get a little exercise and enjoy spring in Oconomowoc.  Oconomowoc Rotary will again have a team for the walk.  You can register to walk and/or donate at www.lakewalk.org.  You can search for our team which is listed as "Oconomowoc Rotary".  $20 early registration is open through March 21st, fees rise after that date.  Contact Dave Breckenfelder if you have any questions.
