4. Business Item from March 2 Business Meeting
Earl Tilly, Shannon’s father, made a presentation during the March 2 business meeting about the work of StoveTeam International. He spoke about a project in Estelli, Nicaragua. The project helps poor families create income for schools, healthcare, homes, and educational programs. The Ananza StoveTeam built a factory to manufacture stoves that emit clean energy and that benefits people with cleaner air and better health. He asked Rotary of Millcreek’s support for the project, suggesting an individual donation of $50. The tax deductible donation can be made at www.stoveteam.org or by mailing a check to:
