Rotary Club of Sedona Red Rocks

Last Week's Topic

Posted by Dionna Prow on Jul 18, 2017
Last week we hosted Meredith Potts from Fire (Flagstaff International Relief Effort) and a member of the Flagstaff Rotary club.  She spoke about the Hepatitis Free Mongolia Project which was created through a partnership with FIRE, a Rotary Global Grant, the World Health Organization, and others.  Their goal is to reduce the rate of hepatitis infections in Mongolia through the education of healthcare workers and the public, promoting proper disposal of medical sharps waste and a large scale vaccination and screening program.  Mongolia has one of the highest rates of hepatitis, a blood born liver disease which can lead to liver cancer and other health complications.  The goal of the project is to eradicate hepatitis infections, similar to the Rotary goal of eradicating polio.  Keep up the good work, Meredith!
Our own Donna Hawk gave her Assistant District Governor report to start off the new Rotary year!  The RI theme for this year is Rotary: Making a Difference.  One of the goals of the new RI president is that one tree be planted for every Rotarian during this year, so stay tuned for how our club will be helping to accomplish this goal.
Our annual Softball Social will be this Thursday, July 20th!  Join us for the game at Posse Grounds Park starting at 6:15 and then head to 1902 next to Whole Foods for food, drinks and fellowship.  Family and kids are welcome.  The restaurant closes at 9:00 so it won't be a late night (unless there's an after-after party somewhere!!).  Hope to see you there!  Thanks Desiree for organizing this. 
Raye, Donna and other members of the committee are hard at work putting together a fashion show fundraiser for Sept.  7 from 6-8 PM at the Sedona Public Library.  Please help out with this event as opportunities arise so that it is a great success.
Another Glow Golf event is coming up August 4th!  Get your teams together and sign up to help out if you can.
The next Rotary Leadership Institute (RLI) is coming up Saturday Aug. 5th at the Doubletree in Flagstaff.  Please let Donna know if you would like to attend or sign up online.  The club pays for the attendance dues.
Sunday Sept. 10th is Rotary Night at the Diamondbacks.  Start thinking about getting a group together to travel down for the game.
