Presidential Induction Dinner

Welcome new SunUp President Laura Vanderberg.  Wednesday night was the annual Installation Dinner at Goldwater Lake.  It was a fabulous dinner, with delicious pulled pork & chicken, all the fixin's and strawberry shortcake. 

We honored all the Rotarians and their spouses for their service (who knew that Val Ripley has been a Rotarian for 46 years?!?).  Attendees included our Asst District Governor Joe Sweeney, Embry Riddle Rotaract President Caleb and Joe's guest, Rotarian Roy

Now past-president Richard Hernandez handed over the reins to now-president Laura Vanderberg, and Sargeants at Arms Matt Greenlee and Val Ripley sent Richard off with a great roast (ask Richard about his new t-shirt!).


Meal Coordinator Still Needed

We are looking for a volunteer coordinator for PASS meals.  Sunup Rotary provides meals one day a month and reimburses the cost of the meal.  This role signs up members to shop for and deliver the meal to P.A.S.S. on Rush Street in Prescott.

For everyone who's here on Wednesdays, we're still gathering with some great programs & you can sign up for breakfast on the SunUp Rotary website (corporate members do not need to sign up for breakfast).

Looking forward to seeing all of you soon!
