We are not meeting this Friday! Instead, we are having a social outing at "Original #1 Brothers Pizza" on Wednesday, August 2nd at 6 PM. This restaurant is on the northeast corner of 75th Avenue and Cactus Road (7440 W Cactus Rd, Peoria).
At last Friday's meeting, we talk about a Rotary Zone pilot opportunity called "The Sustainable Rotary Club Project." This initiative fits very nicely with the discussions we've been having about our club's strategic plan. The club's Board of Directors will vote on August 9th to determine if we indeed join this pilot program. The Zone folks are holding a spot for us. Stay tuned for more details in the coming days and weeks.
On Sunday, our club participated in an Arizona Blue Ribbon event for foster families and group homes. The event saw 500 foster children and their caregivers attend a Phoenix Mercury game in downtown Phoenix; those who volunteered helped to greet and check-in these families. From our club: Dave Evans, Chuck Fitzgerald, Susan Fitzgerald, Marla (& Steve) Lazere, and OYE Ben Lazere, OYE Hannah Lazere, and recently arrived from Sweden IYE Noah Blomme. Ben and Noah taught children in a free tennis clinic prior to the game. We were also joined by Rotarian Peter Mayangi, with the new Thunderbird Club. Here are a couple photos:
Finally, we have been approached by the clothing bank coordinator at the Vineyard Food & Clothing Bank about a current need they have, with the hopes that we might be able to help. They are in need of boys and men's socks. From now through our meeting on September 1st, please bring boys and/or men's socks (or money to purchase them) to our club meeting. They must be either new or like new. Thank you for considering this; it is a critical need for many families in our area.
See you Wednesday for Pizza (or salad, or wings, etc.)!
With gratitude,
