Luggage for Foster Kids
The Club is collecting new or gently used luggage to give to Arizona's foster kids. Many of the kids only have plastic bags to carry their personal belongings. If you have a dufflebag, a backpack or luggage, please donate cash or luggage to assist these children and young adults. 
Please contact Ed Shockley at or call 602-616-0145 and Ed will pick up any donations at your convenience.
Annual Charity Golf Tournament
Mark your calendars for Saturday December 18th, 2021 for the Superstition Mountain Rotary 21st Annual Charity Golf tournament. Our golf tournament is one of our major annual fundraiser events.The proceeds benefit a wide number of local area youth and non-profit causes, including AJ Boys & Girls Club, local area food banks, non-profits serving the homeless - as well as a wide range of other local area needs. Revenues from the event also helped provide more than $12,000 for scholarships ~ which helped a number of high school seniors proceed with educational goals. 

Your help is needed  -- regardless if you are a golfer/or not a golfer

---- If you are a golfer, gather your friends and sign up to play in the event

---- Regardless of whether you are a golfer or not, you can help play an important role, by purchasing sponsorships, purchasing ball drop tickets, providing raffle items -- or asking others to provide raffle items, or purchase a sponsorship

Some suggestions for raffle event items are gift certificates for restaurants, hair salons, oil changes, nail salons, massage therapy, gyms, etc ------- all the sorts of goods and services that people regularly need and enjoy. Consider helping a small business by purchasing a gift certificate from them to be donated for use as a raffle item at the Golf Tournament.

September 15 Meeting
Our speaker was Abe Fedor, who spoke about 'Micro Credit in Mexico'. He shared a video and Powerpoint with many interesting details about the program, and gave a number of examples with stories about individuals who have received a micro credit loan and how it has been very beneficial to their life and allowed them to have a business and support their family. Carole Kralicek presented him with a $1500 donation from the club.
September 7 Meeting
Our speaker was club member and Past District Governor, Bill Pettus. Bill has been a Rotary member for 37 years, and recently transferred to the club from the Rotary Club of Jackson Hole, Wyoming. Bill spoke about his life experiences, as well as Rotary experiences. His speech was quite interesting, and several members expressed regret that we ran out of time. We're all looking forward to hearing more of his story.
Our two newest members, Terralle Moore and Sarah Snyder, removed the red 'new member' ribbons from their badges today. Terralle and Sarah have gotten involved in a variety of Club activities and have also made a big effort to get to know the other members. Welcome to Superstition Mountain Rotary Club, Terralle and have now officially been declared 'old members'!
Roberta had the honor of awarding Brian Kabat with a Paul Harris +2!
September 1 Meeting
Our speaker was Rotary District Governor Bret McKeand. Bret talked about the theme for this year - 'Serve to Change Lives' - and encouraged us to 'double-down' on community service this coming year. He also encouraged us to focus on combining last year's Rotary theme with the theme for this current year - 'Rotary opens opportunities for all of us to serve to change lives'. Rotary helps to provide well intentioned individuals the opportunities to achieve things that one/single person would not be able to achieve by themselves.
Bret awarded Ed Shockley with the Community Service Champion award. Ed is a past president and is currently our Community Service chair. In April, he also took over Harvey Clark’s presidential duties when he became ill, and has continued to make our V.I.P. meeting format possible by doing the necessary equipment setup each week. Ed has definitely changed a lot of lives during his years in Rotary. 
Sharon Stinard was awarded a Paul Harris +2 by DG Bret.
