The Global Water Center Tour and WaterPOD - Open to Public and other Rotarians

WATER - Come to better understand the value of our great freshwater resource right here in milwaukee

NOTE - onsite meeting at 247 W Freshwater Way, Milwaukee

This is an excerpt from the Nov. 2017 Biz Times

Stonehouse Water Technologies, located at the Global Water Center, plans for its final manufactured product, the WaterPOD 8, to be commercially available in early 2018. The purification system can be used for residential, commercial and agricultural properties.

“We’re hoping that, by as early as 2019, we will be selling thousands and thousands of units,” said Anne Wick, vice president of community relations. “This is going to be global, it’s not just going to be local.”

In addition to manufacturing, the funding will be directed toward research and development, as well as marketing efforts, Wick said. The company has seven employees in all, having recently added two new employees.

Wick credits Stonehouse’s residence in the Global Water Center and guidance from the Water Council in helping the company secure the investment.

Stonehouse was previously part of the Water Council’s Pilot Program, an effort by Wells Fargo, Fund for Lake Michigan, and the Milwaukee Metropolitan Sewerage District to advance new water technologies from the lab in Milwaukee to demonstration sites for real-world use.

“There are exciting and fascinating things happening here in Milwaukee when it comes to water,” Wick said. “And the Water Council has been instrumental. With the exposure that we get, you couldn’t get that anywhere else.”

What we did last week - 

Tuesday, October 9 -  There will be a more extensive report yet to come.

We had an excellent conversation with the primary actionable item being the intention of understanding our diverse community by meeting IN the community.  In other words, return to the traditions of the original Rotary club that ROTATED the location of their meetings.  We will intentionally find events or groups of people IN the community to meet with where they are to better understand them and their successes and challenges. Exciting things are on the horizon!

In the District - 

Thursday, October 11 - 

What is One Rotary Summit?

It was a training, coordinated by our Rotary Zone 28-29 team, and facilitated by our own District 6270.  It was focused on the relationship among Public Image, The Rotary Foundation / Humanitarian Service, and Membership.  The objective was to solidify Rotary’s 2018-19 annual theme of Be the Inspiration and the new Rotary Public Image Campaign: People of Action.  About ½ of the time devoted to idea sharing and action development in small groups. The goal was that people got to know other Rotarians from our District and share ideas that they can take back to their clubs to do the work of Rotary in an even better way to implement the theme and campaign.

Amigos Rotarian Marta Carrion attended this session held at Milwaukee Area Technical College- Mequon

Four other club members have previously attended one of the One Rotary Summit meetings that convened at MATC - Oak Creek
