Last Meeting Highlights
President-elect Richard Hernandez presided over our meeting today as Clent was visiting relatives out-of-state. Richard also guided us in prayer, Val Ripley led us with the pledge to our flag, Phil Goode with the Four Way Test, and Art Harrington led us in our song. Congratulations to Art for taking the pot.
 
Richard introduced his guest and prospective new member Scott Welby, and we also welcomed back Bill Mosher as our guest. Our president Clent Walker surprised us with Zoom visit from an airport departure lounge. Safe and happy travels Clent!
 
Thought of the Day by Amy: When you talk you are only repeating what you already know, but if you listen you may learn something.”
 
John Stewart announced that three of the four vehicles involved in the Rotary procession for the Veterans Day Parade were driven by Sunup members, including Jerry Fohrman pulling the float. John also pointed out that we were all very pleased to have Tony Shaw join us for the parade.  Jane Anne reminded our members to look for new and fabulous items on our charity auction website https://www. charityauctionstoday.com/ auctions/sunuprotary-online- scholarship-auction-15979.
 
Community Service had several announcements: 1) Sunup welcomes and thanks Laura Vanderberg for assuming the position of coordinator of our club’s association with Prescott Area Shelter and Services (PASS),  2) Our club is organizing a parade float/procession for the Dec. 5 Prescott Christmas Parade and all are welcome to join (see email for further details), 3) Our club will be in charge of ringing the Salvation Army Bell on Saturday, Dec. 19 from 9 AM to 6 PM on the NW corner of Cortez and Gurley (see email for further details), and 4) The Salvation Army has assigned our club a family of five for their Adopt-a-Family for Christmas program. Each year our club provides Christmas to family, including presents and stockings for the kids, gift certificates for the parent(s), and a complete Christmas dinner.
 
Dan Beyer was the Sergeant at Arms and we were all happy to see Val Ripley. The fiber optic cable outage last Saturday had Art scrambling as he had three online presentations scheduled and was happy to have had a hotspot. Jane Anne was happy to announce we are almost at $5000 for the charity auction, AJ happy that Linda Mast and Jerry Fohrman donated big bags of coats to the warm clothes drive, and Katheryn paid for good luck as she travels to Philadelphia with husband, daughter and a ten-foot U-Haul.
 
Sunup Membership had a windfall this morning as Linda Mast inducted three new members to our club: Linda’s husband Bard Schatzman, Doug Fiske whom Bud Ackerman introduced to the club, and Jean J. Gurga, the new Medical Center Director for the Northern Arizona VA Health Care System. Welcome aboard!
 
Bud Ackerman introduced our speaker Nigel Reynolds. Nigel was born near Leeds, England and immigrated to the US at the age of 25. After a career in telecommunications he retired in Arizona, where he enjoys exploring and writing about the outdoors and history.
 
Nigel announced to our club that he would be showing us photos of his travels in Arizona. Nigel presented the club with a slide show that illustrated some of the more unique and historical aspects of locations such as Butte Creek, West Creek Falls, early mining in Crown King, Cherry and Jerome, lava tubes north of Flagstaff, and concluded with photos of donkeys in Oatman, the largest Cottonwood tree in the world, and the oldest Alligator Juniper in the world. Thank you, Nigel.
