Each year the SaddleBrooke Rotary Club passes the Gavel from the current President and Board to the incoming. This year was no exception. Fortunately, the Club's positive finances permitted hosting the lunch for the attending Club Members and their spouses.
These pictures tell the story far better than any words could ever do:

A Shout Out to Linda Turbyfill for her had work with the Dictionary Project.  During our Coronado K-8 follow up visit, kids talked about the many uses they have for these dictionaries both in class and at home.  Coronado and Sycamore Canyon Academy are both supplied with these Mini Encyclopedias.  Again, thanks to Linda for her 16-year term as Saddlebrooke Rotary Club's Chair of Community Services.

This is a Testimonial to Saddlebrooke Rotary Club Member-Emerson Knowles.  On March 31st Emerson and fellow Team RWB member, Kristin Trapp spoke to our club about their involvement in bringing our young Veterans of War home and keeping them healthy.  Kristin is retired from the Air Force and works as an Occupational Therapist.   The Veteran's Administration estimates over 400,000 Vets are not being treated for Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, resulting in 22 suicides a day.  The VA is not equipped to handle the problem alone.  Team RWB is taking up the slack with People, Health & Purpose.  RWB has over 960 members in Tucson alone.  Thank you to Team RWB and it's dedicated volunteers for your commitment to our returning War Vets. 

The purpose of the Fore For Kids Fundraiser is raising money that is then contributed to youth organizations in Pinal & Pima Counties. As it is for most of us, when we have money to spend [contribute] it burns a hole in one's pocket. The SaddleBrooke Rotary Club Foundation is no different. On April 21st, less than two weeks after the fundraiser, the Club Foundation hosted an award ceremony during our weekly meeting. The recipients were:
Little Hoovers Big Hearts represented by Amy Armour and Terry Mockbee - Gary Terrell presenting.
Connections in Learning | Mountain Vista School represented by Principal Nanette Soule', Dennis Blauser presenting
Math Plus Project | Coronado School represented by Robert Springer, Joe Jones presenting

Teens Sew Cool | represented by Linda Shannon-Hills, Bill Pohnert presenting
