A variety of colorful backpacks will greet forty at need elementary grade students as they return to classes in the Sedona Oak Creek School District in August.

The back packs, provided free of charge by the Rotary Club of Sedona Red Rocks, also contain essential school supplies. Each backpack, suitable for grades K – 3, holds one spiral notebook, a dozen pencils, a glue stick, one wedge eraser, a box of 24 colored pencils and a set of 24 assorted crayons.

Delivered to the Sedona Oak Creek School District Administrative Office on July 19, this is the sixth year that Red Rocks Rotary has donated the backpacks and supplies. They will be distributed where most needed by the SOCSD to students at both West Sedona School and Big Park Elementary School.

The backpack donation comes every year just following the completion of Red Rocks Rotary’s longest running service project which is the summer school literacy program at West Sedona School. The club’s support of the program began in 2003 at the urging of its founding member the late Ray Myrvold.

Red Rocks Rotary annually provides $1,500 toward the cost of the program. Red Rock Rotarians also personally visit the campus and assist the students with their reading lessons during the summer session.

                                
Raye Speirs braves the coldest morning of the season to assist Donna Hawk with the delivery of gifts to the seniors in the program.

A field of 69 golfers teed it up at the club's annual charity golf outing on May 18 at the Sedona Golf Resort. A great time was had by all and a net profit of $16,000 was realized.

On Sunday May 19, ninety-two golfers participated in the club's annual charity golf event at the Sedona Golf Resort. Following the round of golf, the tournament includes lunch and its wildly popular raffle. This year the festivities also featured the live auction of an electric guitar autographed by Rock and Roll Hall of Famer, Phoenix resident and avid golfer Alice Cooper. Capping off nearly three months of soliciting donations and organizational efforts, the tournament generated a net profit of $18,600 which will be used to fund Red Rocks Rotary's youth oriented projects and programs.

Dr. Mike Hughes organized "Give Kids a Smile" event in cooperation with the Arizona Dental Foundation. This great example of service to the community through his vocation, landed him an award by the club. Congratulations Mike!

Our Javelina "Piggy" Bank continues to be a steady source of revenue for the club. The bronze sculpture was created by Sedona artist Barbara R. Brown. A plaque on the base invites passing tourists to "Drop a Buck and Have Good Luck".
