Paint, Sip, Nibble was a Live Auction item at the  Casino Royale last March. Bought by Rotarian Lisa Anderson, it was held at the home of Rotarian Colleen Fennell, who instructed Lisa and her seven friends in the art of painting snow laden fir trees on small boards.  The evening was a big success: lots of laughs and all participants had three boards to add to their winter.Xmas decorations. 

For many, clean water comes with the twist of a tap. But in rural Africa, access to water requires hours of walking, waiting in line and heavy lifting.

On average, a woman spends six hours a day collecting and transporting water to supply her family’s daily needs. The time spent on this basic necessity keeps many children out of school and prevents women from engaging in more empowering activities and income-generating work.
