.Speaker:  Marilyn Fisher, Ronald Reagan Presidential Library Curator. Marilyn has degrees in art history and western art and was senior editor for Cowboy Way and Living Cowboy magazines and was an archaeology illustrator in the aerospace industry.She now has an art appraising business on Whiskey Row. Marilyn was the first curator and preservation officer of President Ronald Reagans’beloved Rancho Cielo retreat, spent 8 years serving the former President at the Reagan Presidential  Library and Museum and 19 years in the preservation of his ranch home The Young America Foundation purchased the ranch in 1997 and it was designated a Presidential Home site. Marilyn became the curator and her research reinforced the importance of the Presidential retreat. Rancho Cielo was equipped with everything the White House would have in the way of  security and communications to seamlessly transition to the ranch. Purchased by Reagan in 1974, with a 1500 square foot adobe house built by hand in 1872,  Reagan replaced the roof and added a front porch and an additional fireplace for heat. While exploring the ranch trails of the 688 acre property on horseback, he decided to run for president. Reagan spent 345 days of his 2 term presidency at Rancho Cielo doing chores, conferring with cabinet members and often receiving dignitaries. Reagan signed many important bills there and gave 42 radio addresses from the ranch. The 2 bedroom, 2 bath home has a small kitchen with 1970s appliances. The bed in the master suite is simply two double beds tethered together and the President slept with his feet resting on a bench at the foot of the bed. In the closet are Reagans Stetson hats and presidential cowboy boots along side a spur that flew aboard the space shuttle Challenger and his well worn US Mounted Cavalry boots from the 1930s. This was the final, most beloved ranch, providing relaxation. Reagan had a blue Jeep that he used to drive Mikhail Gorbachev around the ranch in 1992 and a well worn 1962 red Jeep he used for ranch chores. Reagan had many books written by world leaders in the ranch library. Today the ranch is preseved in perpetuity by Young America foundation.
The Russians Came, and they Danced
The Kaluga Russia Dance Troupe arrived last Thursday evening after a sightseeing trip to the Grand Canyon. They were dispersed to Rotary members’ homes from Sunup, Frontier and Prescott. Friday evening an audience of approximately 100 were treated to an exciting and fun evening of old world Russian folk dances and music. It was far beyond our expectations. Audience members were invited to go on stage and join in the dances. Even Dan Beyer was recruited to lead a tambourine ensemble. I'm sure he can replicate that for our Sgts at the next meeting.
It was a great show and we really enjoyed hosting our guests. Kudos to AJ Sheridan for setting it up.

Good Morning Sunupians,

After hosting our Russian Guests I can honestly say it was a wonderful experience. Hopefully you all had a chance to see their dance presentation last Friday evening. Little League is almost upon us, don't forget to sign up and help Todd and Jim man the snack shack. I am looking forward to seeing all of you at this weeks meeting.
