City of Lakes Rotary Club expresses its condolences to the family of former member Wally Wilsey on his passing and fondly remembers his friendship and service. Wally was a key member of our International Service Committee (ISC) for many years and was a fearless advocate for clean water projects in Central America. He also advocated for food security through his volunteer work with Compatible Technologies Inc. (CTI), a company that made grinders to simplify food preparation in places without access to electricity. The ISC gladly funded many of his projects. Lots of people all over the world who don't know Wally benefited considerably from his work providing food and filtered, clean drinking water.
