She shared highlights about 3 of her projects --- 'Ripple- the biodegradable boogie-board' --- 'Phoenix - a circular economy model' --- and 'Cora - coralline algae manufacturing'. 
'Ripple' has received a number of design awards, both in the USA and Europe. The project idea came from her work for several years as a beach lifeguard, as well as personally being a surfer & someone who loves water sports.
'Phoenix' is a design strategy focused on the building industry. The concept is to repurpose buildings instead of demolishing and reconstructing, thereby saving money and being eco-friendly - ('the greenest buildings are the ones that already exist'). 
'Cora' is a lime manufacturing center that grows coralline algae. Algae is needed for many industries. The current method of manufacturing is not eco-friendly and Cora, and its processes, would change that.
All of April's projects have a focus of using sustainable materials and getting away from 'using forever materials for temporary projects.'
June 2 Meeting
Our speaker was Glen Walp, (former Apache Junction Chief of Police) current President of A.D.O.B.E.  Glen shared a wealth of information about A.D.O.B.E., including information about the early days of Gold Canyon. 
Gold Canyon's early days started with being  a cattle ranch and also a dude ranch. Over time property developers have developed the Gold Canyon area to become the community currently enjoyed by the local residents. 
In about 1989 there were approximately 300 citizens living in our area who got together and decided they wanted to create some form of comprehensive plan to help guide how the Gold Canyon area would be developed - and A.D.O.B.E. evolved. Names of some individuals who played important roles in the development of the group throughout the years were Rosemary Scherer, Genevieve Bricker, George Johnston, Harold Christ, Sandi Smith, and many others.
A.D.O.B.E. was instrumental in creating and owning the publication - 'Gold Canyon Ledger'. Content came from community writers, and advertising was sold to local businesses, with the publication being printed by AJ  Printer, Ray's Printing. This publication became the 'voice of Gold Canyon'. (In the past few years, the publication has been renamed 'Superstition Living', and Ray's Printing has been acquired by Mansur Design Company, who currently publishes the publication. This free publication is delivered at the beginning of each month to AJ and GC community residents via USPS. )
Glen talked about issues and concerns that A.D.O.B.E has been involved with for a long time -- ie, highway 60 bypass issues, annexation issues, conservation, business development and other topics that have been important to the Gold Canyon area.

May 26 Meeting
Our newest members, Terralle Moore and Sarah Snyder, gave inspiring 'Classification talks'.
Sarah worked in finance for 18 years at a large university, as well as a stock market manager, but she found that the work was not something she as very passionate about. She wanted to work with people on a more personal level. Her experiences led her for awhile to the home health care field, and now she is a Supervisor at AJ restaurant - 'Taradiddles'.
Terralle was born and raised in Alaska. He has a military background, working in military police. His background has led him to different career experiences, and currently he is a Manager at the 'Walgreens' in Apache Junction.
They are exploring a number of ideas focused on the goal of eventually owning their own business. Some of the Rotary meeting attendees had ideas, resources and tips for them, regarding owning a business
Both Terralle and Sarah are very positive community oriented individuals and actively look for ways to be involved with their community - whether it is their HOA, other community organizations/groups/city government -- or now as Rotary Club members.

May 19 Meeting

Our speaker was Cody Deppen, Co-ordinator for Phoenix Chapter of 'Heros On the Water' - a national veteran non-profit organization with 70 Chapters in 30 states. The organization creates free alternative wellness programs serving veterans, active-duty military personnel, first responders and their families. The primary proven therapy is kayak fishing. Recurring activities give heroes/their families a lifelong social network with like-minded people. An added benefit is that kayak fishing is adaptive to those with disabilities. During Covid, the Phoenix Chapter went into hiatus. Cody (from a military family) has recently jumped in as Phoenix area coordinator to re-energize the Chapter and get it going strong again. When Covid hit, the local Chapter sent most of their equipment to other more active Chapters -- which were able to better keep active during the pandemic. Currently the local Chapter needs additional funding, and equipment to bring the Chapter back to it's fully functioning capabilities. More information about 'Heros On The Water' can be found on their website -
The Club was excited to induct our newest members, Terralle Moore and Sarah Snyder!
Bill Pepple brought the Club up to date about Rotary Foundation activities. Over the summer months he will be available for Foundation questions via Zoom/phone.

May 12 Meeting

John Iannarelli (a.k.a. "FBI John") spoke about his more than twenty years as an FBI Special Agent and the Bureau's national spokesperson. His cases included the Oklahoma City Bombing, 9/11 attack, Sony hack, numerous bank robberies, kidnappings, and other assorted crimes. And there were so many other cases - some funny, bizarre, very odd -- but always interesting. John has written a book covering many of the stories about cases he has been a part of throughout the years. While most law enforcement matters are deadly serious, there's another side to the job that every cop, agent, trooper, investigator, and detective knows is humorous.
His book, 'Disorderly Conduct' is a collection of the lesser known true stories from the FBI -- lesser known, but not any less entertaining. His new book gives readers the chance to learn about the oddities of an FBI Agent's job, from the memorable arrests to truly bizarre search warrant discoveries. 'Disorderly Conduct' takes the reader behind the scenes to reveal the lighter moments of law enforcement that are 'arrestingly funny'. John's book is available for purchase on Amazon -- 'Disorderly Conduct - The Oddities of My 20 Year Life As An FBI Special Agent'

Teen Strong is a boutique website dedicated to making a difference in the lives of teen girls in Arizona. The website is a unique blend of life resources, info and inspiration. Additionally the website has expanded to offer resources to individuals in Colorado. There are future plans to develop similar resources for other states. Young women don’t always know what resources are available, or how to access them. The pandemic has been challenging for all of us. Young people have been out of school / in school/ doing Zoom school - and have missed out on activities/sports and being with friends. Resources have become even more important during the pandemic which has effected all of our mental health. Families and teenagers may be struggling to maintain balance and happiness. The website is attempting to provide resources and information needed to get through the teen years and help create a strong path for positive growth. Sherry reported that previous contributions from Rotary to her organization had made it possible for her website to get more exposure, traffic, and subsequently reach more young teens who are in need of resource information. From August 2020 to April 2021, her website's traffic increased more than 60% - to currently more than 1000 visitors monthly.

Rotary Week of Service
The Superstition Mountain Rotary service project of painting hand railings at the Apache Junction High School was a successful effort. Several Rotary members came to the High School on Friday and Saturday (April 23 & 24). Everyone grabbed paint & paintbrushes, and did what was needed to get the hand railings painted. Additional community members also came to join in. As an added bonus, the High School football team came and joined the volunteers---(the Club sends a special thanks to the football team for showing up and participating. Their youthful enthusiasm really helped to move the painting project along to completion.) The finished painting effort made the hand railings both look better, as well as be safer. Thank you to everyone for making the project a success.
