What We Are Up tp...

2023-2024 President Emma Batty passes the gavel to incoming President for 2024-2025, Mike High. The ceremony was held at a dinner event at Inn on the Desert Cielos Restaurant on June 22, 2024.


Shirleen Lee, the Elementary School Band Director at Ventana Vista Elementary, asked for Tubano drums to help students learn rhythms and note durations, and to act as an instrument for student composition or performance. The Rincon Rotary understands the value of music education and partnered with Tucson's Instrumental Music Center to help this educator with the materials she needs.
