Club History
The Rotary Club of Goodyear PebbleCreek received their official Charter from Rotary International at the special Charter Celebration & Dinner on November 2, 2017, inducting 22 members in the Chianti Room of the Tuscany Falls Clubhouse.   Rotary District Governor Nancy Van Pelt presented the Charter to Joan Smith, the new Club President.
 
The Charter Night Celebration included a wonderful dinner and an inspirational talk by Craig Wilson, Past District Governor and member of the Phoenix 100 Club, was a highlight of the program.
 
In addition to the District Governor, Nancy Van Pelt, and the 22 Charter Members of the new Rotary Club, several distinguished guests were present including Rotary International Past President, Ray Klinginsmith; past district governors and local club representatives from across Arizona gathered to support and applaud the first club in District 5495 and the newest club in Arizona
 
We are proud and excited to have the spirit of Rotary thriving again in the Goodyear PebbleCreek community,” said John Spooler, long-time Rotarian and PebbleCreek resident who inspired and was the organizational lead in the formation of the club.  “Over a decade ago, a local club which met at PebbleCreek moved and I have been committed to re-building a Rotary presence in the PebbleCreek community.” At the ceremony Spooler was also recognized as a Paul Harris Society member for his generous contributions to the Rotary International Foundation.
 
Concluding the charter ceremony, Smith underscored that Rotary is simply a mix of neighbors, community leaders and global citizens uniting for the common good.
 
 
 
Club News
John Spooler is an strong advocate for The Rotary Foundation. Being the charitable arm of Rotary, it helps clubs and districts work together to perform meaningful, sustainable service such as clean water, medical care, literacy classes and other essentials. Rotary leads the charge in ending polio and promoting peace.  91% of each dollar donated goes directly to Rotary projects around the world!   
 
John honored two club members with Paul Harris Fellow awards because he believes these two individuals have shown leadership and service above self. John recognized Sheryl Driscoll for all her hard work and participation in the community. John's quote was, "Everything that Sheryl works on turns to gold!" "She is very deserving of this Paul Harris Fellow." Joe Miles was the second Rotarian recognized by John. "Joe helps with the set-up and take down of the room each week, says the invocation and believes that you get the most out of Rotary by getting involved in club projects and activities. Joe is a great person to have on our team", John says. 
 
Thank you John, for your continued work of encouraging and helping all our members to become Paul Harris Fellows!

Throughout India and around the world, Rotary clubs are celebrating a major milestone: India has gone three years without a new case of polio. The last reported case was a two-year-old girl in West Bengal on 13 January 2011. To mark this historic triumph, Rotary clubs illuminated landmarks and iconic structures throughout the country with four simple but powerful words, "India is polio free."
 
The three-year achievement sets the stage for polio-free certification of the entire Southeast Asia region by the World Health Organization. The Indian government also plans to convene a polio summit in February to commemorate this victory in the global effort to eradicate polio.
