Interact District 5495 Blood Drive Update 

Written by Art Harrington
Here are the Interact Prescott Virtual Blood Drive results as of 12/23/21. We are having great success! Thank you so much to everyone! 

Results as of 12/23/2021

Total Pledges         51

Total Donations     24 (fantastic!)

Total Unsuccessful donations     5

Total Pledged but have not donated at this time      21

Great Job!!!

Thanks so much for helping our community keep a stable blood supply during the holidays!

Typically we have 6,000 fewer donations during the holidays than needed to supply our local hospitals – your VBD was a great help!


Our Prescott High Interact was the first club in our district to sign up to help make our first-ever Interact Virtual Blood Drive a success.   
The club's flyer includes both a link and a QR code to use to sign up to donate blood to help save lives during the holidays. 
By using that link or code to pledge blood and schedule an appointment at one of the dates and locations in this area, credit is given to our PHS Interact Club. 
The Interact club which recruits the most donors before January 7th, 2022 will receive free registration for all of its members to our Interact District Conference at Centennial High School in Peoria on February 26th. 
Help make a difference!


It's that time of year again when Rotarians from the three Prescott Area Rotary clubs are asked to assist with the Rotary Youth Leadership Awards program.
Please volunteer your pickup or large SUV at RYLA (or as a driver of someone else's pickup/SUV) on the morning of January 15 or 16, 2022 (Sat or Sun) to transport delegates from the main camp area through the woods to the high Ropes course (about a half mile). 2.5-hour shifts are available: 7:00-9:30 and/or 9:30-noon.
Camp Pine Rock - right here in Prescott, will again be the site for RYLA, which will again be held over the Martin Luther King weekend, Friday to Monday, January 14-17, 2022. Individual members from the clubs in our Area have traditionally provided this simple, yet integral service for the RYLA delegates.
Here's how to get involved:
1. Contact indicating that you would like to serve and your day and time preference. Having your own pickup or LARGE SUV is recommended, but we have a couple available for you to drive if needed.
2. Register as a volunteer at RYLA  You will be required to upload a picture of yourself in the registration form and a copy of your Covid vaccination card within the Health form. An email acknowledging your successful registration will immediately be sent to you.
3. Within a few days you will receive an additional email asking that you fill out a background check form. This is required for all RYLA volunteers every year.  Among other information, you will need to fill in your Social Security number on the form.
Thank you for providing this service to our Rotary community and our RYLA delegates.

Many of you have asked how you and your clubs can assist with the disaster relief efforts in Kentucky. The tornados devastated communities in 18 counties in Rotary District 6710.

Donations are now being accepted by District 6710 to help the tornado victims.
Please click HERE for a letter from RI Director Elizabeth Usovicz containing additional details and donation information as well as a video message from District 6710 Governor Gail Story.
Dear club and district leaders:

What would it mean for Rotary if we were the first choice for people seeking both a greater sense of purpose and the person-to-person involvement the digital realm can’t provide?
When we think beyond traditional membership or partnership opportunities, we demonstrate that positive change starts with welcoming the talents and ideas of others. 

Join us for the third webinar in our Engaging Members + Delivering Value series, Expanding our Reach. Register now for one of the sessions using the hyperlinks—this is also where you can learn about the speakers and submit your questions. A recording will be available to everyone who registers. Please note these sessions will only be offered in English.  
REGISTER NOW: Thursday 13 January 11:00 (UTC-6). See the time in a city near you.
REGISTER NOW: Thursday 13 January 18:00 (UTC-6). See the time in a city near you.  
During this webinar we will speak to participants who are sharing our values with new audiences, creating new ways to bring people together to experience the power of Rotary, and proving we are an organization that’s inclusive, engaging, compassionate, and ambitious. 
We look forward to hearing your thoughts and questions.
