The Rotary Club of Sedona Village hosted their end of year breakfast and included a service project for those in need on Tuesday, June 28. This annual event is held in June and marks the completion of the president’s term and the handing over of duties to the next in line.
 
Heather Hermen served as club president from July 2021-June 2022 and was recognized for the term she served and handed over the duties to incoming president, Carolyn Martin. Others were recognized for their dedication and commitment to Rotary, the community, and service above self.
 
The highlight of the event included a hands-on service project for those in attendance. Working with LN-4 Hand Project, the club ordered 10 prosthetic hand kits to assemble as teams. These hand kits are available for service clubs, organizations, or individuals to purchase and assemble to provide free prosthetic hands to anyone in need around the world.
 
Anyone able to put together a jigsaw puzzle can assemble one of the hand kits. The Rotary members paired off and began assembling the kits with small screws, tools, and the parts to make a moving hand. In less than an hour, 10 prosthetic hands were assembled and will be shipped to LN-4 to be distributed somewhere in the world. LN-4 Hand Project has reached 80+ countries including Columbia, Ecuador, Vietnam, India, Jordan, Uganda, Tanzania, and more. Anyone interested in learning more can visit www.ln4handproject.org.
