Christian introduced George Seifried from the Elk Rapids Rotary club. George gave us an update and overview of the Water Projects in Haiti that we have been sponsoring along with other clubs for the last 3 years. They are providing bio-sand filters and education to many homes, families and schools. This is great project and if you would like to get more involved the take trips to Haiti at least once a year and encourage members of supporting clubs to go. Contact the Elk Rapids club for more information
