Last week we met at McCormick-Stillman Railroad Park in the refurbished Pullman Car in preparation for our 33rd annual Special Day for Special Kids (SDSKs) on Saturday, 2/24/2018.  Bill Bergdoll provided an overview of our event and made sure everyone had an assignment for SDSKs. Nick Molenari, McCormick-Stillman Railroad Park, Manager gave us some history of the park and plans for the future.
Saturday morning was chilly with temps around the low 40's, but by 10:00 AM, the entrance to SDSKs was jammed when it was opened for our guests. As the temps climbed, so did attendance, and by most estimates, we hosted approximately 2,700 special needs children and their families.  Great job Bill Bergdoll for your last hurrah with Scottsdale Sunrise Rotary Club as you  head off to Biloxi, Mississippi. Thank you. We wish you well and hope you will include SSRC whenever you return to Scottsdale.  Bon Voyage!
Our program for this week will feature Neil Sutton, who will bring us up-to-date with our plans and activities for our Golf Tournament and silent auction which will be held on Friday, March 23 at Starfire Golf Club.  We will also hear from Mamie Wood, the new golf pro at Starfire, who will assist us in managing our tournament.  Our silent auction still needs everyone's assistance by donating a nice bottle of wine (~$20 category), and any nice items like jewelry, resort hotel packages, gourmet restaurant certificates, etc.  Bill Adams still has "Hole Sponsor" opportunities, along with our 50/50 Raffle tickets which you may sell or purchase.
March SSRC board meeting will be at 5:30 PM on Wednesday March 14th at the Haberer's (7329 E. Carol Way, Scottsdale 85260).  All SSRC members are invited to attend.  If you plan to attend, please RSVP by Monday 3/12.
