Club & Rotary Happenings...
Marc Ashton, CEO at Foundation for Blind Children, was the guest speaker at Scottsdale Sunrise Rotary Club on October 19th, and provided an excellent overview of all the good work their organization is doing to assist their community of over 2,000 visually impaired individuals of all ages in Arizona.
Following Marc’s presentation, a discussion was held by the Board of Directors for the Scottsdale Sunrise Rotary Vision Care Foundation, and it became clear that this was an organization our Vision Care Foundation would like to help support.
Marc Ashton was invited back to Scottsdale Sunrise Rotary Club on November 9th where he was presented with a donation of $10,000.00 for the Foundation for Blind Children from the Scottsdale Sunrise Rotary Vision Care Foundation. The presentation of our donation was made by Tom Georgiou, Foundation president. In attendance were John Prenzno, Foundation vice president, Dennis Haberer, Foundation treasurer / secretary, and David Ortega, Scottsdale Sunrise Rotary Club, president. 
 
Great meeting with District Governor Nancy Van Pelt as our speaker.  DG Nancy brought us up to date on what is happening in the District and the goals and objectives for this District year.  
 
Scottsdale Sunrise Rotary Rascals played in a Miracle League of Arizona (MLAZ) Whiffle Ball Fund Raising Tournament on Saturday, September 9, 2017.  We played two games to assist MLAZ in raising money for their upcoming season for special needs kids being able to play baseball.  Team was represented by David Ortega, Rosemary  Gampm, David Lewis, Mary Holman and Jay , Keith Walter, Duncan Jensen, Barbara Bakwin, Steve and John Clasen, Jake Duffy, Terry Kutzbach, Mike Locher, Craig Rethwill, Neil Sutton, Cindy Weisser , Dennis and Evie Haberer, and Maeve from our Saguaro Interact Club.  It was a  fun experience and a great way to give back to one of our favorite charities.
Scottsdale Sunrise Rotary delivered dictionaries all third graders in six Scottsdale Elementary Schools, Kiva, Navajo, Pima, Pueblo, Tavan and Yavapai.  Teams of Rotarians met with the third graders and explained the dictionaries and walked through a couple of uses for this fantastic book.  Everyone was excited to get their dictionary.  This is a wonderful project for our club.
Michelle Reagan, Arizona Secretary of State, (second highest elected office in Arizona), spoke to Scottsdale Sunrise Rotary on some of the duties of the office, recent accomplishments, and visions and goals for the future.  She provided us with interesting insights of the archiving resources of her office.  It was great to get first hand information on what's going on in state government.
