Our Centennial Year!

Welcome to another issue of our newsletter! Find out who our upcoming speakers are, what we covered in this week's meeting and any other scheduled events.  
We met in person and on zoom.  We had 18 members in house plus 2 on Zoom, and 1 past-Rotarian/ visitor Bill Krueger who was a guest of Mike Casey.
Club President Tonya Watson called the 17th meeting of the 2021-2022 Rotary year at 12:03 pm.  The Pledge of Allegiance was led by Dino Dullbson.  Tonya led the club in a moment of silent reflection for hope for sustained peace throughout the world. 

The Rotary Moment was led by Eric Walden on April's theme of Maternal and Child Health.   Every day mothers risk their lives giving birth and millions of children die each year from treatable, preventable causes. At least 7 million children under the age of five die each year due to malnutrition, poor health care, and inadequate sanitation. To help reduce this rate, Rotary provides immunizations and antibiotics to babies, improves access to essential medical services, and supports trained health care providers for mothers and their children. Rotary’s projects ensure sustainability by empowering the local community to take ownership of health care training programs.

Maternal and Child Health Care is also recognized as one of Rotary’s Seven Areas of Focus.

Thanks for being Rotarians!

club assembly!

Two new members were initiated today,  Karan Patel and Tasha Vigil.  Vaughan, Hoppy, Dino, Laura and Millie participated in the ceremony.  
Karan was born in the UK but moved to the US when he was 9.  He is an entrepreneur here in Flagstaff in the hospitality business.  
Tasha is an AZ native.  Her first job was working for Dino here in Flagstaff!  She is the Community Outreach Director at The Bluffs of Flagstaff, a new senior living center.
Please reach out and welcome Karan and Tasha to our club.
Carla presented a very thorough powerpoint presentation of the club's  VISIONING process.   Planning started in September.  16 club members met for 4 hours at the end of February to identify areas of interest.  This process will allow the club to move forward with momentum throughout the years and through various leadership by:
  • Increasing our Ability to Adapt
  • Expand our Reach 
  • Enhance Member Engagement
  • Increase our Impact 
  • Increase our Participation with The Rotary Foundation
Now is the time to execute on the planning results. 
1. A planning and vision document has been completed.  
2. A club motto is being worked on by Vaughan and Laura.
3. A 3-Year master plan will be developed based on the above document.  Carla (past president), Tonya (current president), Meredith (2022-23 president) and Laura (2023-24 president) have been assigned to create this document.  
4. Our membership goal is to go from 35 current members to 50-55 members in the next year years. 
5. The Master Plan will be broken down into goals and actions steps by Meredith and Steve Cervantes (2022-23 Membership)
Thanks to Carla for all her hard work on this project!

Wrap up Rotary announcements

The Rotary Vocational Fund of AZ (TRVFA) is a way to donate $400 (single) or $800 (married filing jointly) and receive a tax credit on the AZ return.  This fund is a non-profit organization under IRS Code 501(c)(3) whose purpose is to assist those people who qualify under Arizona law to obtain financial assistance to further their vocational studies.  It's a great program, please give!
Our weekly ‘50-50 split the pot’ card game aka “Hoppy Bucks” ..Dino won the chance to win$530 but failed to win, as he pulled the ace of clubs. The total pot is up to $1061 and Tonya noted the deck is getting smaller!
