This week's program
Acting President Vaughan called the 4th meeting of the Rotary year to order at 12:03.  The Pledge was led by Frank and Hoppy led us in a verse of “My Bonnie Lies Over the Ocean.”  Sgt at Arms Rick introduced our 3 visitors today:  Jonathan Bayless, Past President of the Rotary Club of Davis, CA, and Steve and Mary Ann Colf, members of the Rotary Club of Santa Clarita, CA but have now relocated here to Flagstaff.  Rick also announced that he will be reinstating Happy Bucks and a 50/50 raffle.  During the Rotary Moment, Eric Walden shared that 5.9 million children under the age of 5 die each year due to poor health care, malnutrition, and inadequate sanitation.  All of these can be prevented, and Rotary works to try to accomplish this.  Carla distributed copies of Flagstaff Family Food Center’s Hunger Action Month calendar.  We will be participating in a social, having a food drive, and packing emergency food boxes, all to benefit our community and FFFC.
 
Frank introduced Terri Alexon, Investor Education Coordinator at the Arizona Corporation Commission Securities Division.  She shared with us their newly designed website, AZCC.gov, which went live yesterday!  Ask and check before you invest!  The Securities Division can tell you the license status and disciplinary history of an investment salesperson or advisor.  Their website shares information for anyone from young adults to seniors.  They also investigate complaints and perform compliance checks.  A small number of licenses are revoked each year. 
 
Our next meeting is September 3, when our speakers will be Tiffany Antol and Dan Folke from the City of Flagstaff Community Development.  The 4 Way Test was led by Mike Hosking and the meeting was adjourned at 12:58.

FLAGSTAFF ROTARIANS HAVE BEEN BUSY
 
If you were on vacation the last few weeks, you missed a lot at Flagstaff Rotary!
 
Thanks to Hoppy, Carla, Tonya and Steve, and Mike and Trish for donating suitcases to the Suitcases for Dignity Program, to help foster children when they have to move.  Special thanks to PDG Tonya for organizing this and transporting the suitcases to the Valley!
 
July 18 saw 14 Rotarians and friends meet at Your Pie for great pizza and beers.  Fun time catching up with Past President LaVelle and his wife Jan who made the trip up from the Valley.  We were also honored to be joined by DG David and AG Noel.  You never know who you might see at one of our social events, so mark your calendar for Thursday, September 5. 
 
On Saturday, August 10, 14 Rotarians and friends tackled a laundry list of tasks during a hands on project at Camp Colton.  Thanks Vaughan, Jeff, Tonya and Steve, Millie and Craig, Jim, Paul and Sue and their kids Will and Kate, Mike Williams, Carla, and Carla’s friend David.  Thanks to all who came out and showed our community how Rotarians contribute to the places we call home, and THANK YOU CARLA for setting this up for us!  September is Hunger Action Month, so watch for all that Carla has planned for us during September.
