Rotary Club of Sedona Red Rocks

Last Week's Topic

Posted by Dionna Prow on Sep 19, 2017

Last week was the annual District Governor visit and cocktail party to welcome DG Nancy Van Pelt and her husband Tom Hutchinson.  The evening started with a welcome from Assistant Governor Donna Hawk.  Our own President Mike Hughes, Dave Young from the Rotary Club of Sedona, Eric Young from the Verde Valley Club and Laurie Selenski from the VOC Satellite Club gave updates on their exciting programs, projects and fundraisers over the past year.  Janette Bill and friends also gave an update on the Imagination Library Program, which thanks to the joint effort of the area clubs has grown exponentially in a short time.  DG Nancy Van Pelt then spoke about her goals and hopes for the year.  She believes that at their heart Rotarians are dreamers and that every project, such as Shelter Box, Polio Plus and the Homeless Youth Connection, likely all started with one Rotarian coming forward with an idea.  She challenged each Rotarian to come up with an idea, big or small, for a program this year.  Who knows what it may lead to?!  Nancy also acknowledged the hard work of the many volunteers in merging two districts into one.  Let's help honor DG Van Pelt's hard work and help make this a great year for District 5495!
