Last week's program was a tall one.................19,341 feet to be exact, and Greg Podd was on hand to provide us with a private tour of his experience to the top! What a great program and what a great experience. Truly, a monumental lifetime achievement over both mental physical challenges.  I'm so jealous!  We are truly grateful to Greg for sharing his fantastic adventure.
This week's meeting will be hosted by Jake Duffy, our President-Elect, as Evie and I will be heading off to Kentucky to catch up with old friends and family, and then off to Washington, D.C. for a brief visit.  This week's speaker is Thomas Shannon, Scottsdale Fire Chief.
If anyone has an interest in attending the Club Leadership Academy (CLA), you still have time to register. This is a great program for any club member who may be thinking about becoming more involved in our club and Rotary in general. The program will be held in Phoenix this Saturday, April 21st.  Please go to for details and to register. Our club will reimburse you for the registration fee.
