Food Drive Report 

Thank you to all who participated in the food drive.  Cathleen Cherry, Interact Club Advisor at Prescott High School reported a huge success of  2, 516 items donated to the Prescott Community Cupboard.  
She writes: "Wow! That is astounding.  Thank you so much for all your help promoting, donating, counting, and loading."
Prescott Sun Up Rotary donated 128 items plus $120 
Cathleen shared the photo above and said: "The photo was taken at the Prescott Community Cupboard at 777 Hillside where we took all the donations.  It took 3 loads in my Yukon to get it all there! 
Really amazed at the awesome outpouring and the organization  of our club for this project.  I think that all the officers who attended your training were really empowered by what they learned. Awesome job!"


39th Annual Prescott Christmas Parade!

Come out and join us for our Rotary entry in the 2021 Prescott Christmas parade.
The parade is scheduled for Saturday, December 4, from 1 pm - 5pm.
Sunup Rotary has registered a parade entry for all Prescott area Rotary clubs. Ron Williams will once again be providing the float and his fabulous Cobra.
The 2021 parade theme will be “It’s a Who-Ville Christmas” and thus we are strongly urged to dress in a similar fashion as those characters of the fictional town Who-Ville in the Dr. Seuss cartoons. Basically any kind of missed-matched, outrageously distasteful clothes. Google Who-Ville for ideas.
Thank you!!!

Camp Wamatochick Service Project 

The winterizing of Cabin 12 at Camp Wamatochick so it can be used year-around is underway.
Join Prescott Sunup Rotary workdays on Saturday, Dec. 11, and Saturday, Jan.22  
On Saturday, Dec. 11:  cutting, hanging, taping and texturing the drywall inside the cabin. 
On Saturday Jan. 22: assembling the new steel bunks and painting. 
Club members who may wish to arrange to help Mike with some of the other work at other times will be welcome to do that; but we are committing our club to just these two workdays.
Thibeautiful, rustic camp, nestled in the Prescott National Forest, is one of the oldest camps in this area, being established in 1926.  It was operated for many years as a Campfire Girls camp.  Most of the cabins were solidly built by volunteers back in the 1930s, and they have withstood the test of time quite well,  However, they were built primarily for summer use. 
Over a period of years, a number of the camp's buildings have been winterized; but five of the cabins still remain to be upgraded.
This is the camp which hosts our annual Interact District Council Retreat.  In addition, we will be launching our first JR RYLA at this camp in June.  We have developed a great working relationship with the current owners of this nonprofit Christian camp, and we anticipate basing more Rotary programs there in the future.
