Meetings & Events
 November 3, 2023 - Doug and Dave, were the first to deliver dictionaries to the Roosevelt School District this year. This was a unique experience because the teacher made a video of the event.  Click HERE to see the video.
 October 30, 2023 - Karen Jayne, Chief Executive Officer of Stardust Building Suppliesgave us a good overview of how her non-profit organization functions.  They have a permanent staff but rely on assistance from volunteers. They have been in the Valley since 1997. Stardust is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. They operate two reuse centers for home improvement which sell gently-used, salvaged, and surplus building materials at affordable prices. Additionally, they provide deconstruction services that salvage building materials, divert waste from landfills, and support sustainability in the community. Karen's presentation was well received and generated many questions. Our Kyrene Rotary club will explore ways in which we might volunteer with this organization.
October 15, 2023 - 5 members of the Kyrene Rotary Club and our exchange student, Lotte, labeled dictionaries at Kline's house. The dictionaries will be delivered later in the month to 3rd grade classes in the Roosevelt Elementary School District. The photo shows Lourdes, Doug, and Lotte.
 October 9, 2023 - Dawn Hocking, Director of Development for The Centers for Habilitation (TCH), gave us an update on the status of her organization.  Our club also presented her with a $6,500 check in support of their programs.
The TCH mission statement is:
At TCH, we support some of the most vulnerable people in Arizona. We ensure the more than 23% of Arizona adults with developmental or physical disabilities have the support and opportunities they need to live life to the fullest. From helping adults with disabilities develop critical life skills to guiding them through career training with the goal of independent employment, we offer Arizonians with disabilities the tools they need to make their own choices, improve their abilities and gain control of their lives. 

October 02,2023 - Today we had a visit with our District Governor, Kevin Pitts. He gave a very informative presentation which generated many questions from the club.

Kevin Pitts is the District 5495 Governor for 2023-2024.

Kevin Pitts joined the Rotary Club of Prescott in 2004 and has been an active member since, both at the club and district levels. His experience living in Mexico City over 12 years gives him ties to that country and he has followed that passion, serving as international service chair for his club and as the co-chair of the Mexico USA Friendship Conference and Global Grants Exchange.

Kevin and Elizabeth are Rotary Foundation major donors and benefactors. His passion for the Rotary Foundation is focused mostly on global grants and he has participated in numerous projects, often as a technical advisor with his club serving as the international sponsor club. Kevin believes in active participation in grant projects and has visited various project sites in Mexico and Kenya.

He also has an interest and background in teaching and served as district Rotary Leadership Institute coordinator, as well as a PETS facilitator. Working with Interactors and Rotaractors, he was part of the Crutches 4 Africa team that coordinated mobility device distributions with the Rotary Club of Naivasha in 2018.

Kevin is Chief Investment Officer and partner at EverVest Financial and in his spare time can be found in the wild, fishing and hunting, often with his three sons.

 September 30, 2023 - Members David, Lourdes, Doug, and Andy, along with exchange student Lotte performed various tasks on Saturday morning. Dave presented a check to T4T from one of our club members on behalf of the Kyrene Rotary Club.
