The children's collection has grown over the last 4 years to just over $2000. Last week the choices were presented to the children that the money could be sent to from each class ($400 per class). They were Lifestraw, the cove, and an orphanage in Mexico. Today each class voted, the 3/4th grade group voted 13/1 for Lifestraw. 3 other classes also chose Lifestraw and one class did not vote yet.

After several rescheduled dates, Brett made it to a dinner meeting at the Essex Yacht Club to present his project to the Essex Rotary Club. Our whole family joined him and it was a great night. He amazed me with the amount of information he was able to share during each slide. As we sat at the table before he went on, I overheard him tell Judy that he had a message for them from the Devon Rotary Club. it was that they had given him a check for $300 and that they should try to beat that. She stood up and announced the message to the whole group and one woman responded that if each person gave $20, they would have $400, well over the goal. And, they did, one at a time, they stood up and gave $20 and many kind words of praise for Brett and his efforts. I appreciated that someone mentioned how nice it was to see our whole family there to support him.

I was shocked by the amount of water we use on a daily basis in our home!! And, we were on the low side compared to national averages.http://wecalc.org/calc/#
