Rotary Clubs Pull off Casino Night!
WOW! Saturday night for the Rotary clubs of Prescott and Chino Valley was a huge success. Official crowd estimates were upwards of 300 for the second annual Double Down Casino night. Jane Anne and Jerry "The Cardman" Fohrman deserve many accolades and praise for getting the committee organized early and moving our venue to a larger area within the Rodeo grounds. We were at capacity so the question for next years committee is where do we go from here? There were plenty of tables for your favorite card game with celebrity dealers as well as professionals. The BBQ dinner was terrific and many, many silent auction items and raffle prizes. The committee learned a great deal from the first Casino Night so this years event operated more smoothly and efficiently. There were many positive comments from event goers on what a great location we had and the delicious food. "What a deal for $50!"
Meeting Highlights 5-14-2018
Meeting Highlights: Mike Bennett of Findlay Automotive visited again. Norm Samuelson introduced Argentina youth exchange student Quinn Routson, and Bud Ackerman introduced new resident Brett Ray. It was great to see Matt and Heidi Greenlee, Ben Hansen, and Terri and Terry Smith back in attendance. Dan Beyer thanked Ben Tuttle for completing the sign up and announced schedule changes for Snack Shack. John reminded us of road cleanup on June 2.
Great Extractions: Rusty Parker was Sarge and Par Wood toted the pot. Sarge promptly collected bucks from all the just happy’s and IOU’s. Jane Anne Shimizu was recognized multiple times for the Casino Night progress. A.J Sheridan paid for counting the meetings left in his year. Ben Hansen was happy to be anywhere and also announced moving to Texas in September. Art Harrington was happy that United gave the Interactors discounted prices. Phil Goode won the drawing.
Speaker Last WeekEd Reilly, sculptor and owner of Bronzesmith Fine Art Foundry and Gallery in Prescott Valley, reported on the construction of the “Cowboy in a Storm” piece. The 14-foot-high sculpture is a replica of a miniature by renowned western artist George Phippen and will ultimately be installed in the center of the new Highway 89 roundabout near the Phippen Museum.  Ed walked us through the seven major steps of the “lost wax” casting process. Because of the size, it was necessary to cast 65 separate pieces before assembly. He plans to transport the piece to the Courthouse Plaza for a special sneak peek on May 25, with an unveiling ceremony at the annual Western Art Show and Sale on May 26. Bronzesmith offers tours and bronze pourings Thursdays at 11am by appointment.

Howdy My Fellow Rotarians and Friends,
Okay, not that I am counting, but can we all hang on for six (6) more weeks, five (5) meetings, and one installation celebration. Although you may see incoming President Neal McEwen handling meeting No. 5. Can hardly stand it? LOL
Good news! I had thought to have a final report/review June 13, but decided to just do a few notes in my corner over the remaining weeks rather than bore you with a formal event.
My general view is that it's been a pretty good year overall. There have been some challenges as we struggled with a few changes that I thought might be good - bringing on ClubRunner, adjusting the meeting layout, looking at how we operate, and making recommendations to the board for ways to enhance our club, all come to mind. 
But there have also been some great fun moments. Working on service  projects, attempting to lead both Club and Board meetings (and missing a detail here and there, even with an agenda in hand...What can I say!), I may have even learned a thing or two.
If I have done nothing else, some of these ideas have worked to energize us to get us past a level of complacency, and hope that this change will continue.
A high note for me has been working with a really great group of people. I hope that you will never forget that our Prescott-Sunup is "THE Wicked Good Club!" And that is thanks to the many members who are supportive of Rotary and your leaders. Those who can be counted on to step up and contribute money and/or their time and effort to make it so.
Till Wednesday, keep the peace and keep smilin',
