THIS WATER PURIFICATION building was constructed in the Mexican town of San Jose Monteverde as part of an effort to bring clean drinking water to the town’s roughly 1,000 inhabitants. Parishioners from St. Peter’s and St. Ambrose Catholic churches, the Vergennes Rotary and a cohort of other organizations teamed up on the project. Photo courtesy of Scott Gaines
