We Are Water – Jill Heinerth

16 07 2013

Monday, July 15th, 2013 ~

Jill Heinerth and Robert McClellan have been cycling across Canada, presenting “We Are Water,” to many different venues, across Canada. Since they were going to be in Ottawa, we were able to schedule a presentation, with SOS (Save Ontario Shipwrecks).

We had approximately 30 people in attendance, at the Orleans Public Library.

Thanks to Robert and a few others, for building a fort in front of the windows, to block as much light as possible, for the video!

Jill started off the presentation by showing us a childhood picture, telling us how she loved the water from a young age, and then moved on to worldwide experiences, throughout some ofย  the world’s cave systems. Who knew that to go cave diving in certain places, that you would need to learn how to use a machine gun? ๐Ÿ˜›

We then watched a clip from the “We Are Water” video, that included so many little things that we can do, to help conserve our fresh water resources.

I think that this is such a worth cause, and can’t even imagine cycling across the country, like that! Robert even showed us a little bit of his “Cycler’s Tan!”

There were some items available to purchase, with all proceeds going towards the We Are Water project (including all admission fees – the room cost was donated by Steve and I).

We also presented Jill with a Lifetime Membership to SOS. I think we can forgive your membership lapse, Jill! ๐Ÿ˜›

Yes, there was even a little bit of time for some silliness…

Thank you so much, to Robert and Jill, for taking time out of their busy schedules, to share “We Are Water,” with us!

Thank you very much for the book, too!!!
