Our speaker was Carianne Campbell, Restoration Director at the Sky Island Alliance. She spoke about the many programs that the alliance carries out in Southern Arizona and into Mexico. Carrianne highlighted the diversity of the species of mammals, birds, insects and plants that live in the area as well as the spectacular scenery. The organization utilizes the service of volunteers for their projects in protecting open spaces, keeping wildlife connected, restoring land and waters, and responding to climate change. This is an opportunity for Rotary members to participate in some of these projects.
 
 
Our Speaker Today was Sa’ad Allawi who spoke on The Unfortunate State of Yemen covering the history, geography and demographics of Yemen. Yemen was the poorest country in the Middle East even before the outbreak of war in 2015 between Houthi rebels and government forces. The conflict has heaped devastation and poverty upon the population. Sa’ad also updated us on their current situation and the new invention of “Green Cake” which is a creative cheaper alternative to cement blocks for construction. The blocks were developed by Majd Mashhrawi, a Palestinian female engineer from Gaza, utilizing ash from restaurants and factories combined with war rubble. The blocks are half the weight and cost of traditional concrete blocks and have better insulation factors.

Evening club members plus visitors from the morning club (Dave and Bruce) meeting at Noble Hops. The meeting was to support Noble Hops for its participation in the Taste of Oro Valley.
A small amount of Rotary business was conducted with the rest of the time spent in merriment - as you can tell from the happy faces.
