Thursday was an exciting day.  Steve King, newly returned from Kenya, arrived about 3 p.m. to show Carl and me photos and videos he took at Oltorotua.  In the videos Jackson translated back and forth.  Steve feels very confident, even though it’s about 150 miles —  a sometimes bumpy, 5 hour trip — between Nakuru and Oltorotua, that the Nakruru-Great Rift Valley Rotary Club will do an excellent job in working with Oltorotua.

More of Jackson’s photos: (1) Frank Faust receives necklace.  (2) Steve Brown receives his gift. (Chair of water management committee looks on.) (3) The Rotarians from Nakuru and US were very impressed by village woman’s description of the difficulty walking so far each day for water.   Hope I’m correct that Frank and Steve Brown are from Lexington Park Rotary and Steve King is of course from Leonardtown, all in Maryland.

 

 

 

 

 

 

After hearing about Steve’s trip, he, Carl, and I packed up our tri-fold posters and computers and hustled off to the World Peace and Understanding Day sponsored by the four Rotary Clubs of Frederick.  A number of people stopped by, including friends Judy Thompson and Monica Greene.  Elaine Lynch of the Fredericktowne Club, who will be the liaison for the project with Fredericktowne the lead club, and Steve met each other.  Paul Hughes, retired military now Chief of Staff of the U.S. Institute of Peace, gave an excellent talk and answered questions about USIP’s work in the world’s hot spots. Here I am with Steve and Elaine beside me at our display.  We much need at least two more clubs to join us.  Any other Future Vision Rotary Clubs who want to bring water to Oltorotua?
