    On Saturday, April 29, 2023 more than 150 Fountain Hills community volunteers showed up to paint 14 Fountain Hills Unified School District (FHUSD) classrooms. Representatives from both Fountain Hills Rotary clubs (Four Peaks Rotary and Fountain Hills Rotary), Noon Kiwanis, Town of Fountain Hills and Town Council, Dark Sky Association, Scottsdale Bible Church, Pelligrini and DeGeorge Partners, and Firerock Country Club, joined school staff, students, Key Club and other Town residents to complete the project. President Todd Harris was the Project Champion leading the efforts to a successful community project.

    To think there are thousands of people living in Arizona without access to basic plumbing and clean, running water is unimaginable. But that is precisely the case for the Navajo Nation, located in parts of Arizona, New Mexico, and Utah.

    In 2019 Jeff Poynter was optimistic that the project fits well with Four Peaks Rotary’s vision. “We’re a club that wants to help as many people as possible. This is a tremendous opportunity for Four Peaks Rotary to step up and really make a difference in many lives.”

    Back in 2019, Four Peaks Rotary President-elect Jeff Poynter (left) and Rotary International project coordinator Jim Bissonet shared Rotary’s plan to initiate underground cistern systems to hundreds of homes in the Navajo Nation. Four Peaks Rotary is hopeful of becoming a part of this Rotary International effort to supply clean water and electricity to the Navajo Nation.  
     

    A wonderful evening at FireRock Country Club celebrating the successes of 2022 with fellow Rotarians.  In addition to celebrating the 25th club year, the club also celebrated the year of giving by distributing over a $100,000 to local and global non-profits and people in need.  Congratulations Four Peaks Rotarians, cheers to a prosperous 2023 and next 25 years!  See our FaceBook Reels highlights.
