Program January 28
Lydia Peri and John Enloe from the Truckee Meadows Water Authority joined Reno South to provide information about one of the many ways TMWA is conducting long term planning for water supply and purity.  This particular project involves the purification of sewer effluent to federal and state drinking water standards, introducing it into the groundwater through an injection well.  Natural treatment in the ground further improves water quality, and will help recharge our aquifers.
Of interest is the partnership between all levels of government and higher education to address our long term environmental needs.

Irene lived in Amsterdam and was 7 years old when on May 10, 1940 Germany invaded her country and the Nazi occupation started in The Netherlands.  She lived in a part of Amsterdam not far from where Anne Frank and her family lived before they had to go in hiding.

Her whole family became part of the resistance and her parents took Jewish people into hiding.  During her early childhood they lived in fear and privation--even young children were  reminded daily to not talk to anybody about the people hidden in the house, since the Nazis were always looking to find and deport Jews.

Irene will present the story of her youth under Nazi rules with slides and personal experience.
Follow her family’s endurance while learning history from one who was there and tells you a first hand narration.
