Club News
veterans day at sedona winds
 
Rob Schaefer organized this year's Veterans Day program at Sedona Winds. Boy Scout Troupe 7048 was the color guard and raised the flag. Rev. Fred Mast gave the invocation and Sammy Davis provided entertainment.
 
Sedona Winds had two tables of memorabilia for resident Veterans.
 
 
Club members enjoyed wine and charcuterie on the patio at Decanter. Pictured here are the good witch, Robin and Debbie enjoying the reds.
 
Mark von Hoetzendorff gave an update on World Polio eradication that started as a Rotary project 35 years ago. "Rotarians have contributed $2.1 billion with countless volunteer hours to vaccinates 3B children in 122 countries," he said. Mark showed photos from his trips to Africa at the height of Rotary efforts on that continent. In 2020 Africa was certified by WHO as polio free.
 
Rob Schaefer made a stirring appeal for continued support of the project and gave clear instructions about how to donate. While polio outbreak is down to only a few per year in Afghanistan and Pakistan, funds are still needed to do the surveys necessary to determine when infections of wild polio virus are finally ended. It takes two years of no new cases for WHO to declare the world "Polio Free."
 
 
Everything was great. The volunteers showed up; the players showed up; and people were having a great time.
What didn't show up was the sun. The rain showed up instead and everybody was called back to the club house.
 
In spite of the rain, the silent auction with Jennette's leadership did well raising about $15,000.
 
Maybe next year the weather will be kinder to our efforts.
