ANNOUNCEMENTS AND CLUB BUSINESS

 
  • President Matt Ruppert reminded everyone of the District Assembly coming up on April 23 in Payson and April 30 in Scottsdale, providing a great opportunity to learn more about Rotary and incoming Board positions.
  • The Conference of Clubs will be May 20-21 at the Chaparral Suites in Scottsdale, including awards, mystery speakers, and fun-filled surprises.
  • Superstition Mountain Rotary will be presenting ten $500 scholarships to selected honorees at Apache Junction High School on April 20, 7pm at the Performing Arts Center. Members are welcome to attend and celebrate the culmination of our fundraising efforts!
  • Mike Dungan reported the news:
    • Locally - According to Forbes magazine, Apache Junction is among the Top 25 Places to Retire.
    • Mike also noted that Jim Erickson was recently in New Mexico visiting the site where the atomic bomb was developed. At the same time, Secretary of State John Kerry was visiting the Hiroshima Memorial in Japan. Interesting…
  • With only 9 cards left, Matt tortured us by postponing the raffle drawing until its usual time. The pot was worth $751.50 today.  Sharon Stinard won the drawing and $10 but drew the 8 of spades.  Next week we are down to 8 cards which means your chance of winning is 12.5%.  Not bad odds for that much money.
