This is a yearly friendship/ grant conference where Rotarians from both sides of the border meet to socialize (with mucho gusto!) and evaluate mostly Mexican grant proposals dealing with the Rotarian Seven Areas of Focus: Environment, Peace and Conflict Resolution, Disease Prevention and Treatment, Water and Sanitation, Maternal/Child Health, Literacy, and Community Development. The conference is held on both sides of the border in alternate years and next year it will be in Prescott, AZ! Because this year's event was held during the solemn yet festive Day of the Dead week, we visited  the 200 year old Colonial town of Zacatlan. We found a beautiful central Mexican town that has a rich and pure tradition of celebrating their much revered ancestors, their native foods and traditions, and the Catholic Church all rolled into one widely colorful time. Our timing was excellente!  Seven proposals were jointly funded by 11 binational clubs and three Districts, including a children's burn unit where, in time, the  15-16 children a month who need skin grafts following serious burns will be able to get the care they need. Viva la Rotary!

2022 Grapes for Good broke attendance records with 420 in attendance at the Sept. 25 event at Watters Garden Center.  Final numbers are pending but the successful event raised over $100,000 gross with a whopping $70,000 net to support our community.
 

Since its inception in 1974, Prescott Frontier Rotary has always had its focus on the children of our community and those of the international community.  Beginning in the mid-80’s we helped with funding for the PUSD summer school program for elementary students, and that program is now called the Frontier Rotary Summer School Program.  We have also contributed to the middle school summer school program.
Several years ago, we began helping to fund the Prescott High School Path to Graduation program that provides online classes so that students can graduate on time.
Two years ago, we became involved with Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library program.  This program provides a child from age 0-5 with a FREE book every month!
And there many others: Hungry Kids, Books to the Rescue, Caborca Children’s Hospital, Rotary Youth Leadership Awards, Polio Plus, Shelter Box, to name but a few.
 
Rolling Hills Cemetery is located just south of the northern city limits of Prescott, off Hwy. 89 that goes north from Prescott and is off Ruger Road by the Airport. 
This month's Rolling Hills cleanup turned out to be a bigger project than anticipated!  The weather this last month really caused it to get overgrown in a hurry and what was going to be a touch up turned out to be a clean up.  Eight Club members, two Interactors, and a community volunteer (who has family members buried there), got it done.  One of our volunteers, Linda Crogan, went out and bought a new flag to replace the one that was in tatters, and wit was hoisted up.   Another Rotary job well-done! 
 
Another good thing done by Frontier Rotary! 
On Saturday, September 24th, flowers were delivered to five Gold Star Mothers, those women who have lost a son or daughter in the service of their country.  I believe in each case, those making the deliveries had the opportunity to spend some meaningful time with the mothers, talking about their child's service.  A huge thanks to the following: Linda Mast, Robert Wertz, George Umlauf, Liberty Cesarez, Ken Caplin, Tom Hendershott, Wendi Lancy, Rex Townsend, Lori Dekker, Amore Cianciola, myself, and friends of Wendi and Liberty.
        
Every 2 months the generous neighborhoods of Prescott and beyond collect food for other food insecure neighbors and school kids.  Rotary Club of Prescott and Prescott Frontier Club come together to pitch in to sort car and pickups full of donated food for schools and food banks. Some of this food was earmarked to go home on Fridays for week-end school kid nutrition. One in three children in Yavapai County either face or are at risk of not having enough food throughout their week. Rotary Clubs in Prescott work hard to help hard working families in our Quad-City area.
 
Rotarians, students and caring members of our Quad City Area gather together one overcast morning to sort and pack 2 U-Hauls and a school bus to feed hungry families in our area.
 
Two hours later we FILLED this truck and two others with food so generously donated by caring neighbors.
