 'Angel Tree' Project
Some of our members responded to an urgent request for volunteers from the Salvation Army in Mesa, in response to a major crisis. The 'Angel Tree' project uses gifts that have been turned in to them, as well as items that have been donated by stores and others to fill the gaps on each child's wish list.  
The crisis came about when ten members of the Salvation Army staff in Mesa recently tested positive for COVID and they had to shut everything down so other staff members could be tested and wait for results.  The many tasks they would normally be doing this time of year had not been done.
December Service Project
Club members volunteered for bell ringing in conjunction with Salvation Army.

Celebrate with us!

We could also use more silent auction and raffle items. The golf team mentioned that valentine-themed items are particularly popular this time of year. There are also sponsorships available.
Highlights of December 16 Meeting
The Club held our annual meeting on December 16th. Several year end items were covered in preparation for the coming year ahead. The slate of upcoming 2021-2022 Superstition Rotary Club officers was reviewed, voted on and approved.
Additionally, the golf committee reviewed with the Club what the planning status is for the upcoming Jan 23, 2021 -'20th Anniversary Annual Charity Golf Tournament' event. A number of upcoming service projects which the Club will be involved with were discussed.
Rotary's monthly focus for December, is 'Disease Prevention and Treatment' ---- which is certainly a timely topic for the world, as we are all feeling the challenges of Covid-19 and it's effects on our communities and lives.
With the next 2 weeks containing Christmas and New Years holidays, there will be no club meetings until the New Year on Wed January 6th.
Highlights of December 9 Meeting
Our meeting on the 9th was a club assembly. President Harvey Clark led the meeting, with attendees discussing a variety of upcoming Club events, service projects and other items, including conversation and planning for our upcoming 20th anniversary Annual Charity Golf Tournament event that will take place Saturday, Jan 23, 2021 on Dinosaur Mountain course at Gold Canyon Golf Resort.
Club member, Dr. Krista Anderson, Superintendent of the Apache Junction School System, was congratulated for being named 'Superintendent of the Year for Medium Size School Districts' by the Arizona School Administrators (ASA) organization.
Highlights of December 2 Meeting
Our speaker was Natalie Ackerly, a Licensed Insurance Agent with IHC Specialty Benefits.

Natalie assists individuals by sorting through the jungle of insurance options and plans that are available, and helps the person to have the information needed to make the best insurance choice for themselves.

She spoke about the various types of Medicare supplement plans and prescription drug plans that are available in the marketplace. There are HMO, PPO and Advantage plans with differing rules about providers that can be used, and if a referral is needed for some doctors - and other assorted variables that exist from plan to plan. Some plans may cover only medical, while some plans may cover medical and also other items such as dental, vision, hearing, or even gym memberships.

Medicare drug plans can be quite confusing as well, with some plans covering different drugs, and at different levels of cost and coverage. Depending on the prescription drugs an individual regularly needs, different plans may be most suitable.

Weighing all the possible insurance choices, and comparing the costs, and coverage can be extremely confusing for most individuals -- which is why it is helpful to consult with a licensed insurance agent who is staying on top of the ever changing landscape of medical and drug insurance companies and plans.
