Good job to all!!! In my book, the Duck Race was a huge success. You all make it look so easy. Thank you, thank you, thank you! The day went as planned. It was a beautiful day. The interact club came out in full force. It is nice to be associated with such a vibrant Interact Club. We haven't had time yet to add up all of the proceeds, but I can tell you we exceeded our goal of $15,000. It is so rewarding to know that all of this money will go toward supporting the educational needs of kids throughout the Verde Valley. I can't think of a better cause. We should all be proud. Our hard work is paying off and by the way, it's fun! Tania will provide us with a final report as we pull together the numbers.
The first place winner ($1000) is Spectrum Health. Way to go Richard! Second place ($250) goes to our friend and fellow Rotarian Lois Kelley. Third place ($100) goes to Rick & Kathy Heinrich from Cornville.
On September 17, 2015 the Rotary Club of the Verde Valley presented four amazing students with its prestigious Student Ambassador of the Month Award at Nate’s Cowboy Cafe. These wonderful students are nominated for the award by teachers, administrators and counselors based on characteristics that may include leadership, teamwork, academics and service to the community. Pictured left to right (front row) are Maisie Babcock (MVP), Shacee Backus (CJS), (middle row) Sean Williams (MUHS), Lucy Showers (CVHS), Brian Sawyer (Rotarian), (back row) Richard Dehnert (Rotarian), Tom Taylor (Rotarian) and Carrie King (Rotarian).
