Our speaker this coming week will be Noel Campbell, Arizona District 1 Representative, from Prescott.  Representative Campbell was instrumental in passing legislation (HB2107) to regulate Sober Living Homes during regular session; it passed overwhelmingly with 42 ayes, 12 nays, and 6 not voting.

Mr. Campbell's career is comprised of service to our country as a Naval Commander, a US Customs agent, and as a helicopter and tanker pilot for the US Forest Service.  He grew up in Phoenix in a family of law enforcement officers.  He lives in a historic home listed in the National Register and owns a small business in town.  In his off-time, he leads motorcycle tours through Mexico and Central America.  He has two adult children, two grandsons, and a new granddaughter.

Bring a friend!

Why should YOU join this Rotary Club?  A few of the reasons are:  Friendship, Business Development, Personal Growth and Development, Leadership Development, Citizenship in the Community, Citizenship in the World, and FUN!  Join us as a guest on any Tuesday of the month and if you like what you see, ask for a membership packet.  You can also contact Ron Williams, Membership Director, by clicking on the email link on this home page.

If you are just starting out in the local business world, or you are a seasoned veteran, you should be a Rotarian!

 

 
 

Do you know the power of the EREY concept?  What could the Rotary Foundation do if every Rotarian contributed $100 minimum every year to the Rotary Foundation? Eradicate polio? More water projects? Starving children?  Grants to our club? It's all possible if we each do our part.

President Noel reminded us that we should all make this contribution every year.  Our Club makes it practically painless by adding an optional charge of $25 to the quarterly billing.  Currently, 23 of our 28 members are contributing to the cause.  $25 in a 90-day period works out to only 28 CENTS per DAY.  You will never get a BIGGER bang for your buck than that!

If you are already contributing regularly ... be proud of what your contribution has meant to Rotary.  If you are not contributing, please join us to make Prescott Frontier Rotary an "EREY" club and help change the world!

Hall of Fame singer Donovan becomes a Rotary polio ambassador
Legendary singer and polio survivor Donovan Leitch, better known simply as Donovan, has joined Rotary in its fight to eradicate the paralyzing disease that afflicted him during much of his childhood. Donovan contracted polio at age three in Glasgow, Scotland. The disease weakened his right leg and left it thinner and shorter than the other. Confined to his bed for much of his childhood, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame singer said his father would read him poetry. In a recent interview with the Daily Express, Donovan said that listening to poetry piqued his interest in creative writing. “If I...
World Polio Day toolkit available — start planning now
Rotary's fourth World Polio Day celebration, on 24 October, will highlight extraordinary progress in the eradication campaign and emphasize the work that remains before we wipe out the virus for good. With the number of new cases worldwide nearly halved from this time last year, we have the opportunity to rally our resources and see the last case of polio this year. Health officials and Rotary's celebrity polio ambassadors will head to Atlanta, Georgia, USA, for the event, the first to be held at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). It will be streamed live and then will...
Young member uses leadership positions to promote diversity, inclusion
The way Rotary member Todd Jenkins puts it, he's the first generation in his family "to do everything": first to go to college, first to fly on a plane, first to visit another country, and the first to live across state lines. Jenkins, 28, grew up in a low-income neighborhood in Columbia, South Carolina, USA. His family worked hard just to make ends meet. So travel and college seemed out of reach. The eldest of ten children, Jenkins says his goal was to break out of the family status quo and set a positive example for his siblings. He credits his mother with helping him avoid falling into the...
Rotary recommits to ending polio in Nigeria
The World Health Organization has confirmed two cases of wild poliovirus type 1 (WPV1) in Nigeria, the first cases in the country since July 2014. After passing a year without a case of the wild poliovirus, Nigeria was removed from the list of polio-endemic countries in September 2015. These cases – from two local government areas of Borno state – occurred in July 2016. The Government of Nigeria – in partnership with the Global Polio Eradication Initiative – will take immediate steps to respond quickly to the outbreak to prevent further spread of the disease. This response will include...
