Another memorable and proud day for our Rincon Rotarians

September 21, 2020

On behalf of our Members of the Rincon Rotary Club, President Steve Pedigo and Wendy Hobbs presented a $1275.00 check to THREAD (Together for Hope, Resiliency, Empowerment, and Development); organized and led by the Imago Dei Middle School.  The School's leadership that were present (and pictured) for our check donation were Renee Downing, Bibi Zahva and Susan Gamble.  THREAD is a project supporting refugees giving them the tools they need to produce and sell face masks.  Shown by the photo next under, Steve and Wendy received a tour of the robust face mask operation which was quite impressive. 

September 17th Guest Speaker:

Our speaker was our member, Dr. Glenn Shaw, Professor Emeritus, University of Alaska

International Arctic Research Center.  His presentation was titled “Clouds in Art”.  He explained

that although the science of cloud physics has been studied since the 1800’s, clouds have been

also been studied for visual art purposes.  He shared a variety of artwork from throughout the

world depicting clouds in various ways including seasonal scenes, skies after volcanic eruptions,

battle scenes, etc.  He challenged everyone to pay special attention to the clouds in art the next

time you’re in a museum.

September 11, 2020 Rotary Local delivery

Our club continues to support teachers through our Rotary Local project as they persevere in teaching their students while maintaining social distancing. 

 

On Sept. 11, we delivered two science books to an AP Biology teacher for his 30 students at Tanque Verde High School.  The students will check out the books to read at home.  

August 21, 2020:

Four Tucson-area Rotary Clubs from Southern Arizona’s Rotary District 5500 worked together to raise and donate $4,000 to Youth on Their Own (YOTO) on August 21, 2020.  Pictured are Steve  Pedigo, President of Rincon Rotary Club, Pat Kerr, President of Old Pueblo Rotary Club, Paul Bennett, President of Catalina Rotary Club, and Richard Marcello Member of the Pantano Rotary Club.  Also pictured is Steve Pedigo handing the presentation check to Ms. Katrina Calderon, the YOTO Marketing and Outreach Director. 

 

Rotary is a service organization of business and professional people worldwide who unite to provide humanitarian service, encourage high ethical standards in all vocations and help build goodwill and peace in the world. 

 

These four Rotary Clubs are pleased to support Youth on Their Own because of their demonstrated success in our community working with Tucson's homeless youth to remove barriers to completing their education and empowering them to lift themselves out of poverty.
