2018 Feb. General Meeting

On Thursday, Feb. 8th, we had our usually general meeting at Windermere Town Hall. The informal coffee was hosted by Peggy C. and Tanya C.  There was a St. Valentine’s theme table featuring delicious  sandwiches by Peggy. Peggy also brought the centerpiece and some wonderful orchids from her home. Thank you to Tanya and Peggy.

Our program was a presentation by Jennifer Mitchell from St. Johns River Water Management. She explained that water bottlers and soda companies use on 1% of the water usage in the water district and of that 99% are used by companies that sell bottled water. Also, she explained that state law makes it easy for water bottle companies to get rights use Florida water. I was also surprised to find out that each Floridian household uses up to 91 gallons of water daily.
