BERKELEY SPRINGS, W.Va. — Five local Rotary clubs, as well as Rotary Interact and Rotoract clubs from across the region, will come together Sunday afternoon to raise awareness of the importance of quality drinking water.
The Water Awareness Project will be from 2 to 5 p.m. at Berkeley Springs State Park.
The effort will highlight the local and international clean-water projects that Rotary supports.
Rotary clubs will host a Bucket Brigade, where participants will transport water from the springs to a ShelterBox water-filtration system.
Mike Hornby, incoming Rotary district governor, and Berkeley Springs Mayor Scott Merki will join the cause by drinking the water once it is filtered.
Local high-school students who participate in Rotary Interact clubs will be on site, and will hold a bake sale to raise money for clean-water efforts.
