March 30 Meeting
Our speaker was Harold Christ, owner of Windmill Winery in Florence, AZ. Harold is a long time Gold Canyon/Pinal County resident who has been involved in many successful endeavors over the years. Windmill Winery, with popular venues of 'The Lake House' and 'The Barn', make it a sought-after location for weddings. A number of popular local wines are grown and bottled at the winery, and there is a wine tasting room, where individuals can enjoy the wines, as well as book private events. Making the facility even more special are the iconic resident animals, including burros, chickens, turkeys, cats and more. For more info about Windmill Winery -
March 23 Meeting
Visiting Rotarians from other Clubs were our speakers. They shared information about a wide variety of interesting and profitable fundraising activities their respective Clubs have implemented over the years. Speakers included Phyllis Chambers, Tom Halazon and Mary and Terry Drader. Events they shared ranged from small, exclusive dinner events to large activities -- one event mentioned even included airplane rides. It was evident a lot of creativity exists among Rotary Clubs and their respective service and fundraising activities.
A check was presented to the Gold Canyon Missions Food Bank to help support their agenda of providing food to those in our area who are food-challenged. For more information about -- and learn how you can help support the food bank -
March 16 Meeting
Our speaker was Club member, Aaron McDermid, who shared information about the organization, 'Run Ranger Run' /also known as 'Gallant Few'. The 'Gallant Few' is a non-profit organization providing one-on-one transition assistance and veteran support to any service member or veteran seeking support and guidance along their transition from the military and reintegration into American society. The organization was founded by veterans for veterans. According to the Department of Defense, every day approximately 1,300 new veterans, spouses, and children begin their journey of reintegration into local communities. The transition for these individuals and families brings many unique challenges and no two transitions are the same. There are various opportunities for individuals and service groups (such as Rotary) to provide donations, as well as other support to the organization and the veterans and families which it serves. For more information about the group -
New Club members, Jordan Capozzi and Tyler Gates were inducted and welcomed into the Club.
March 9 Meeting
Our speakers included Superstition Mountain Rotary Club members, Lee and Roberta Holmes, Bill and Nancy Pettus, and winter visitor Rotarians, from their Club in Canada, Terry and Mary Drader. All three couples shared their experiences, having been attendees at a large number of Rotary International Conventions in many locations over the years. Their shared experiences were both informative, as well as entertaining. A common thread was when a Rotarian attends an International Convention their circle of fellow Rotarians grows by leaps and bounds - and it matters not where the convention is held - regardless of location, all Rotarians are accepted and treated as new friends and partners in being involved in service projects and working to try and make the world a better place.
March 2 Meeting
Our speaker was Ellen from Road Haven Resort. Ellen shared information about a project that she and others have been involved with called 'Homeless Mat Project', which utilizes plastic shopping bags. The type of plastic shopping bags we all get at grocery stores, and other retail establishments, when we make purchases are collected and re-purposed into mats that are given to the homeless. 
These mats can be used by non-sheltered /homeless individuals to provide a waterproof barrier for sleeping on the ground. The mats help with comfort and well as temperature issues.
Ellen would appreciate any donations of plastic bags/or monetary donations, as she also includes additional items with the mats she gives away, such as hygiene items, socks, etc.
Anyone interested in becoming involved with making plastic bag homeless mats can find a number of on-line videos covering exact procedures for making the mats utilizing crocheting, knitting or using a loom that is created especially for homeless mat projects.
