TUESDAY, July 18

Our Speaker on Tuesday will be
John Hamon from
Sharlot Hall Museum
speaking on the subject of
TRAINS, TRAINS, TRAINS
 

Discover the history, heritage, greed and glory of multiple railroad enterprises around Prescott beginning in the 1870s and waning in the 1960s.

Mines in Congress, Yarnell, Humboldt and Mayer needed the railway to ship their ore. And passengers and freight needed a connection to the Atlantic and Pacific Railway that crossed the Arizona Territory to the north.

Two companies, the Central Arizona Railway Company and the Arizona Central Railway competed for funds and support to build a line from Seligman to Prescott. The two finally consolidated in 1885, and the connection was completed by the end of 1886.

But there were problems with this line, including the fact that trains had no place to turn around and had to back all the way from Prescott to Seligman.

The Santa Fe, Prescott and Phoenix Railway, also known as the Peavine, incorporated in 1891. The new line required engineering feats involving long timber trestles and blasting through rock along the connection to Ash Fork via Chino Valley.

SEE YOU THERE!

Five years since its debut, Rotary Club Central is getting a big upgrade
When we introduced Rotary Club Central in 2012, it revolutionized goal tracking and planning for clubs and districts — no more filling out paper club-planning forms or passing along boxes of historical club information every time a new leader took office. Rotary Club Central offered clubs and districts a quantifiable way to begin measuring local and global impact, specifically membership initiatives, service activities, and Rotary Foundation giving. But as with any technological advancement, in a few short years, Rotary Club Central began to show its age, and Rotarians took notice. They...
Rotary International Board adopts new zone structure
At its January 2017 meeting, the Rotary International Board of Directors adopted a new zone structure for Rotary clubs. Rotary bylaws require the Board to complete a comprehensive review of the 34 Rotary zones no less often than every eight years to ensure that each zone has an approximately equal number of Rotarians. The Board’s previous review of the zones occurred in 2008. The Board earlier approved the creation of three regional workgroups to develop rezoning proposals for Asia, Europe/Africa, and the Americas. These workgroups comprised one representative (either a current director,...

Convention: Southern hospitality
The Atlanta Host Organization Committee is offering some good old-fashioned Southern hospitality at the Rotary International Convention from 10 to 14 June. It has planned a wide range of activities featuring everything from good food and music to inspiring tours of local landmarks. If it’s your first convention, these events are chances to meet fellow Rotarians from around the world, and if you’re an experienced convention goer, you can catch up with old friends. Hall of Fame baseball player Hank Aaron will host Rotarians for a “Strike Out Polio” night at the new SunTrust Park, where you’ll...
Member spotlight: The power of the press
When Teguest Yilma helped found the Rotary Club of Addis Ababa Entoto in 2002, she thought polio had already been eradicated from most of the world. But while Ethiopia had been free of the disease, Yilma was shocked to learn that new cases had started cropping up in surrounding countries such as Somalia. “I was thinking, it’s not possible, we can’t be free if the countries around us are not free,” she says. Yilma, the managing editor of Capital, Ethiopia’s largest English weekly newspaper, has brought a journalist’s skills to the fight against polio. She became vice chair of the Ethiopia...
