David Simmer joined us to share a project the Rotary Club of Sedona is coordinating. An online charitable auction of gift cards/certificates from local businesses to help the Navajo Water Project during this difficult time. Rotarians and friends of Rotary are invited to purchase gift cards/certificates from their favorite establishments and donate them to the Rotary auction. The establishments will win twice—once with the purchase of the gift certificates and a second time when the purchaser of the gift certificate frequents the establishment and, in most cases, spends beyond the value of the gift certificate. The online auction will be held for five hours on Sept. 12, 10 to 3 p.m. on CharityAuctionsToday.com. The beneficiary of the auction is Rotary’s Navajo Water Project. Please send your purchased gift cards/certificates to David Simmer, 35 Altair Avenue, Sedona, AZ 86336. 
Our Club decided to take the Happy Time dollars for August and use them to purchase certificates and contribute to this fundraiser. What a great chance to support our local restaurants and a worthy cause!

During the COVID-19 pandemic the Navajo Nation has been particularly hard hit, partly because of the lack of clean water in homes. Over 30% of Navajo homes still lack running water. Rotary Clubs in Arizona District 5495 have organized an International project to fund bringing water into Navajo homes as well as solar electric power. Learn about the project which can bring water into a home in a 24 hr. time-frame.
