Latest News
On the fifth Thursday of each month SaddleBrooke Sunrise Rotary takes a break from formal meetings and gets together for a social. On August 30, club members and friends met at the Mountainview Country Club and shared drinks, stories, and dinner. Pictured is one of several tables. The smiles tell the story!
A hardy crew of SaddleBrooke Sunrise Rotary Club tree planters braved the cold and hard dirt at the Arizona Veterans’ Memorial Cemetery in Marana. Pictured are Maggie DeBlock, Doug Sweetland, Dick Kroese, Mark Douglas, and Roger Swett.  
 
Our own Debbie Foster created this video of the many activities our members do to make a difference in our community. Click on the image.

On August 19, SaddleBrooke Sunrise Rotary members again contributed materials and time to help stuff a bus with school supplies. 
 
The members of the SaddleBrooke Sunrise Rotary Club are going to hear plenty of "y'alls" and "all y'alls" now.  Past President Tim Johnston handed the gavel over to Debbie Foster, the club president for 2017-2018. Debbie spent forty years in community college education and recently retired as academic dean for the Central Arizona College District Communications Division and the Campus Dean of Aravaipa Campus located in the Copper Corridor.  Her hometown is Jacksonville, Texas, which is “Behind the Pine Tree Curtain” in the heart of the Piney Woods of East Texas. She is married to Glen Foster, has one daughter and son-in-law and a two year old granddaughter, Hazel Jane. They live in Texas. And if you know Debbie really well, she might tell you the story of her bullet wound.
