Carrying on with the vision of Past Member and President, Bill Beamish, Four Peaks Rotarians built a scaled replica of the Twin Towers surrounded by 411 American Flags representing the Firefighters, Paramedics and Police Officers that died at the 9/11 site.
The display served as a backdrop for the Town of Fountain Hills celebration.
 
 
 
Our beloved Four Peaks Rotary Member, Bill Beamish, passed away on September 13th, 2021.

 To think that 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.

     Four Peaks Rotary learned at the Club’s June 13 meeting of a Rotary International project that provides construction of individual water systems for Navajo homes. Solar panels and electrical connections are included for families that do not have electrical service, as well.

     Guided by Rotary project director Jim Bissonet at the June 13 meeting, Four Peaks heard how the Club can get involved in helping the Navajo Nation with their water needs. According to President-elect Jeff Poynter, the Club will have an opportunity to vote on receiving a Rotary Global Grant that would allow Four Peaks to work hand-in-hand with Rotary International in solving the water crisis with the Navajo Nation.

     Poynter is 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.” 

     The Club hopes to make an announcement within the next few weeks of their partnership with Rotary International and the Navajo Nation.

     Four Peaks Rotary meets the second and fourth Thursday of every month at 7 am at Fountain View Village. For more information regarding the Club, visit
