Tim Andis from Liberty Bottle Works then presented our program for the week. They have presented 350 local companies’ bottles. We are welcome to do a Kiwanis tour. Everything is USA made and they are the only one of its kind to be that. They also have zero waste. It takes 14 pop or bear cans to make a bottle. Aluminum is making a comeback. They were issued a patent after 4 years of patent pending. First bottle was in October 2010 and it took another 6 weeks to make the next perfect bottle. They have now done 1 million bottles and will do 600,000 this year.
Program next week will be Tony Roarke, city manager.
