The Rotary Club of Shady Brook recently completed its’ first International project by providing clean water for the village of Big Rock in the province of Abucay Bataan in the Philippines.
The village’s only water supply for 600 plus residents was from a stream which was used for bathing, washing clothes and drinking. Shady Brook Rotary in partnership with a local Rotary Club hired a contractor to dig a deep well and provide a storage tank so clean water would always be available.
On February 28, 2012, Dr. Augie Adrid, a Past President of the Shady Brook Club attended the ceremony dedicating the well to the village. Dr. Adrid’s brother Rene who lives in the area, was instrumental in the completion of the project.
Pictured at the ceremony are Dr. Adrid and Ana Santiago the Mayor of the province.
