Looking Ahead

RLI Coming to Prescott this Saturday, May 20
You’ve heard about it, and our district’s Rotary Leadership Institute (RLI) will prove to be one of the best investments you can make of your time, it you really want to understand more about this incredible organization known as Rotary — beyond what you may experience in a single Rotary club. 
RLI is divided into three 1-day levels of sessions, and it will never be easier to climb aboard the RLI Train than when it arrives this Saturday, May 20, from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., in Building 19 at Yavapai College.  These are interactive, facilitated sessions when you are discussing these key Rotary subjects with members of other Rotary clubs, learning how they successfully do Rotary in their clubs, and how it is done in other parts of the world.  The three RLI levels are offered at least 4 times each year, rotating each time to a different location.
The cost to register for RLI is $60, which includes lunch and the printed materials.  Our Rotary Club reimburses RLI registration fees for any of our members who elect to participate in this 3-tiered enlightening educational adventure. Register now at

Double Down Casino Night Update

Let's sell tickets and get donations
Jane Anne suggests that when people ask for donations they lead with the amazing scholarships we gave last year- $18,000 worth, and that we want to raise $35,000 this year! 
Please have donors fill out the form, and get it back to us.  Also- very important!  Jane Anne reminded everyone that you actually have to collect the donation, in whatever form! 
The donation or sponsorship isn't complete without the money or item in hand!  We need 16 blackjack table sponsorships at $250 each, and three crap tables at $450 each.
Club members are being asked to bring to our Rotary meeting a nice bottle of wine, spirits or a 12-pack craft beer.  We also need baskets to use help create gift baskets for the silent auction.
Saturday, June 17th  5p-9p at the Prescott Vibes Event Center. 
Located at: 6200 North Rt. 89, Prescott (near the Prescott Airport) 
Contact Jane Anne Shimizu928-636-4565 Ext. 4 or
Club members will be going out to the other Prescott Rotary Clubs to share information about DD and sell tickets. 
Club members will be selling hard copy tickets, and for the internet/Square- savvy amongst us, you can also buy tickets by going to our website and clicking on the Double Down logo. 

Every club member is expected to sell 10 tickets. Get table sponsors and donations! Go now!

We need dealers for our 21 tables. Celebrity dealers and Prescott Residents encouraged.

Remember, our ability to offer scholarships is directly related to our success with Double Down.  The more donors, the more money raised, the more scholarships we're able to give to deserving graduating seniors- for both college and vocational schools.


Help us support our youth!
