Rotary International 2023-2024 President R. Gordon R. McInally 

from Rotary Club of South Queensferry, Lothian, Scotland 

July brings in New Leadership (Transition) Month. Welcome to the new Rotary year and our theme "Create Hope in the World."
Todd Harris turns the Rotary Bell and Gavel to our 26th Club President, Julie Ewald, who looks forward to supporting the mission and vision of Rotary International incoming president Gordon McInally theme focusing on Peace, Mental Health, Empowering Girls and building upon prior years. 
On July5th,Four Peaks Rotary Club in Fountain Hills Arizona USA and a few of the Fountain Hills High School students providing Community Service (graduation hours) participated this glorious morning at Fountain Park to assist the town clean-up the grounds from the fabulous Fireworks Display at the Fountain on the 4th! Thank you Rotarians, Students and a few other residents for your dedicated "Service Above Self" time keeping our Fountain Park environment top notch! We had a lovely breakfast at Phil's to end the morning.
A two-month Community Paint Project calls it a wrap this Father's Day weekend.  To President Todd Harris's "A Team."  a sincere and grateful "thank you", including many other Fountain Hills Community Service Groups, Businesses, Rotarians, Kiwanians, etc who participated in the beautification endeavor for the FHUSD. The Middle School students will be transitioning to the High School location this fall to a fresh new start!  Also, the paint project included a hallway mural representing spirit of education, and to welcome the students and staff by Heather, of Heather's Interior Design and Painting.  In appreciation, Todd Harris awarded Heather with the Clubs Presidential Gratitude Chain.  The Gratitude Chain is given to a Rotarian or Humanitarian Leader recognizing their humanitarian service, encouraging high ethical standards in all vocations, and helps build goodwill in our community and the world, demonstrating "Service Above Self." and "People of Action."
How do you say "thank you" to an out-going president?
Well, if you're a Four Peaks Rotarian, you roast them thoroughly (thank you, Jeff Stack), then toast to their passion, dedication, and timeless effort.
Thank you, Todd Harris, for your selfless service above self. We appreciate you!
Are you still reading?  Then it's probably because you're wondering why we're all wearing bright yellow safety vests. Todd wears one at practically every Rotary community service project, most especially the golf outing, so we thought it would be fitting for our members to wear one for his salute farewell toast in his honor.

On May 29th Four Peaks Rotarians participated in their annual Memorial Day Flag presentation.  Thank you to all of the community volunteers who helped us place nearly 2500 flags around the Fountain Park walkway and Avenue of the Fountains this morning. We honor and remember those brave individuals who made the ultimate sacrifice in securing our American freedoms. We wish you all a very peaceful Memorial Day.  A special mention and thank you for some our Fountain Hills Toastmasters group joining in to help.  
In May of 2019, Rotary International and Toastmasters International formed a unique strategic alliance, drawing from the strength of their many similarities and complementary differences.  The opportunity for Toastmasters members is primarily to establish fellowship and make new connections, contribute more to communities, and potentially elevate clubs. Rotary members have the opportunity to develop new skills and may ask to visit Toastmasters clubs or receive evaluations. Toastmasters also developed eight educational courses for Rotarians and Rotaractors, available on Rotary International’s Learning Center, which can be accessed by their members in nine languages.
On May 6, 2023 the Four Peaks Rotarians held a FUN DAY at their 2nd Annual Kentucky Derby Run for the Roses fundraiser to support the Midwest Rotary Disaster Fund and Rotary Polio Fund.  Special guest appearance by Tender Little Heart ponies who were "making friends, warming hearts, sharing smiles and spreading joy, one tender little heart at a time." This year's event was held at the beautiful Desert Canyon Golf Club.
On behalf of the Four Peaks Rotary club we appreciate the generosity from participators, sponsors, and the Rotarian Derby Committee; Robin Brand, Debbie Clason, Sandy Davis, Julie Ewald, Denise Ricketts, Gary Shuey and Coco Pameditis who supported our event to a successful outcome.   
This years event raised $3400 which $400 was donated to Rotary International Polio Fund and $3000 benefited Mississippi Rotary District 6820.  Pictured Derby Committee members Debbie Clason, Denise Ricketts,  Sandy Davis and Julie Ewald presenting the check to Mark E. DiBiase, Mississippi District Governor on June 22, 2023 at the club meeting. 
Here's a big dose of cuteness to brighten your day....

Four Peaks Rotary participates at the annual Activities & Volunteer EXPO on January 25, 2023 at the Community Center sharing their message with the community, recruit new members and network with   other clubs and organizations in town. Attendees learn about Rotary opportunities, gather information  and speak to club representatives Todd Harris (President), Julie Ewald (President-Elect), and John Gianotti   (Foundation Member). A wonderful time spent with the Community of Fountain Hills! 

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.”

Alongside Rotary and DigDeep bring a vital commodity to their ancestral homeland RI article  

DigDeep was able to install nine home water systems to Navajo families in Dilkon before the pandemic brought the project to a halt. Dilkon is a town on the Navajo Nation located in Northeastern Arizona. Below, Rotarian Project Champion, Paul Perreault and 2022-2023 President Todd Harris on location with the DigDeep team.  Future updates coming in Spring of 2023
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.
