Friends & Rotarians, the end of my term as your club president has come. Over the course of one year, together we have accomplished the following:
  • Raised $11,168 for the Veteran's Raffle
  • Raised $11,217 from the Grocery Grab
  • Raised $20,677 from the Golf Extravaganza
  • Supported 2 families with the Adopt a Family program
  • Provided 490 pounds of produce to the Sedona Community Food Bank with food from the garden
  • Volunteered nearly 2,000 hours in the garden
  • Sponsored an Interact Club at Verde Valley School
  • Cleaned pounds of trash during a Creek Clean Up Day and the Rotary Week of Service
  • Started our Club Visioning process
  • Contributed $12,711 from our monthly Happy Bucks to programs including: Hope House, CASA, Ukraine efforts, Guatemala Literacy, Blazin' for Books, Polio Plus, and more.
It takes all of us to accomplish these things and for that I offer my gratitude and appreciation. It's been a year of learning, gathering experience, and accepting responsibility. I appreciate the opportunity to have served and appreciate your patience with me. I look forward to seeing you all at a club meeting, community service event, or in the garden. I gladly hand over the title and duties to my fellow Rotarian and friend, Carolyn Martin. Her leadership and abilities will take us far as a Rotary Club. Please join me in welcoming her and inviting her to show us the way.
With gratitude and appreciation, 
Heather Hermen
