 April 30, 2024 - 

Several members and a couple guests of the KRC visited AZStRUT and Stardust on Tuesday, April 30. Most of the group met afterwards for lunch at Ted's Hot Dogs just down Broadway from the 2 organizations.

AZStRUT is a 501c3 non-profit that supports Az technical education as well as community efforts towards a more sustainable future. They accept used electronics and reuse, recycle, or divert as much as possible. The effort started with help from Intel and Motorola. Current efforts include a technology camp that concludes with donation of 1500 laptops to a Phoenix area school.

Stardust is a material reuse non-profit with the goal of “starving the landfill.” They accept working donate appliances as well as having several “deconstruction teams” to reclaim materials from homes. There was a broad range of home improvement materials ranging from wine coolers to doors to fireplaces to cabinets; well organized, at good prices.

 April 23, 2024 - Dylan Valenzuela talked about how he started his new business, I C.A.N. WELLNESS, after working with/for an M.D. for 14 years. I C.A.N. Wellness is a medically supervised wellness program that provides a method to optimize the patient's health and wellness through dietary strategies, nutritional counseling  and blood analysis and body composition testing. Dylan described his philosophy and method of working with patients. He puts a heavy emphasis on regular, detailed conversations with his patients. His new business is thriving and growing. His presentation generated lots of discussion with club members. 
 April 08, 2024 - Jennifer Adams (Tempe Vice Mayor) and Brooke St. George visited the club and got a surprise. Dave and Lourdes brought eclipse glasses and shared with visitors and Olive Garden staff. Jennifer reviewed the Safety Corridor program that Tempe has deployed. The primary focus is to reduce late night drag racing. It involves cameras and coordination with the neighboring cities of Mesa and Phoenix. Police are identifying drag racers and tracking them for later arrest. No high speed pursuit is planned. They are also using surveillance at gathering places like Circle K's to disperse crowds before they form. Tempe as well as most Valley police forces are understaffed so they are trying to avoid crowd control activities. The program has been active for several months, and they are preparing initial reports to determine its effectiveness. 
 April 1, 2024 - Club member, Bill Perkins, gave us an overview of the NCAA from the 1990's, early 2000's and what has happened since then. His presentation included the changes made in NIL (Name, Image, Likeness) over time. It was an excellent presentation that generated many questions and lots of discussion.  Thank you Bill
