Thought of the day from Phil Goode : If you don’t read the newspaper you are uninformed. If you read the newspaper you are misinformed.
Jeff Lewis was welcomed back. Art Harrington reported that Rotary International has declared the African Continent Polio free. Richard Hernandez had 22 people respond to the live meeting survey with 81% for and 19% against.
Sergeant Greg Fined Clent, Jane Anne and himself for business plugs, Jeff Lewis for visiting and Terry and Teresa for their anniversary. Lots of happy bucks!
 Our speaker was M.J. Smith, Executive Director of Downtown Prescott Partners. M.J. was previously Executive Director of the Laughlin, Nevada Tourism Commission before moving to Prescott. Many of the downtown businesses such as bars, restaurants and retail outlets are members of the Prescott organization.
Downtown Prescott Partners oversee all events on the Plaza, including Christmas lighting and work with the Yavapai Health Service to put on the Summer Concert series on the Plaza which is also lived streamed. They also sponsor Prescott Rodeo Days which is the largest, most profitable event for Prescott businesses.
Many Businesses have been closed due to the pandemic. The City Council has approved the reopening of bars operating at 50% capacity and must serve food and are monitored by the State Board of Health and the State Liquor board. The City Council has begun a campaign to raise 10 thousand dollars to assist local businesses and will host a Labor Day weekend motor cycle rally Saturday through Monday with outdoor bars, closing Whiskey Row to facilitate parking, charging $15 Per bike with 50% going to local businesses and 50% for Christmas lighting. Interstate tourism is a continuing to increase.

Greetings fellow Sunupians,
I hope you all had a great weekend, and if all goes well, I hope we will have an even better week. With last weeks COVID cases for Yavapai County seemed to moving in a more favorable direction, I’m hoping we’re moving closer toward a great installation event and our first in person meet for this Rotary year. However, I must admit that we are having some fun virtual meetings, but I know there’s nothing like the real thing. So, let’s continue to hang in there, keep having fun and be ready to do what we do better than any other club when we’re back together in person. Until Wednesday, stay safe and invite someone to join us.
