They say all good things must come to an end.  And so it is for our wonderful Club.  After much discussion and debate, the Rotary Club of Sierra Vista West has merged with the Rotary Club of Sierra Vista Sunrise effective March 1, 2022.  We thank all our past and present Rotarians for the great times and memories, but more importantly for what you have done for the Sierra Vista community, District 5500, and Rotary International.  We also thank all those wonderful organizations that saw the importance of our mission and provided assistance to make sure the projects came to fruition.  We couldn't have done it without  you!
On the bright side, we are merging with another outstanding Rotary Club in Sierra Vista and we look forward to continuing to support our wonderful city, its people, and its future.  Thank you Rotary Club of Sierra Vista Sunrise for welcoming us to your team.
