Club News
A Peace Pole is an internationally-recognized symbol of the hopes and dreams of the entire human family, standing vigil in silent prayer for peace on earth. Each Peace Pole bears the message May Peace Prevail on Earth in different languages on each of its four or six sides. There tens of thousands of Peace Poles in nearly every country in the world dedicated as monuments to peace.
 
The Rotary Club of Green Valley is working to put a peace pole in our community in the near future.

Judge Ray Carroll, who majored in philosophy at Regis University in Colorado, became a Pima County District 4 Supervisor in 1997, serving (as a Republican in spite of being from Chicago) until retiring in 2017. Later that same year he became Presiding Judge in the County’s District 7 and was certified by the AZ Supreme Court in April 2018. He’s had 100’s of hours of training in not letting politics interfere with the job of judging.

Judge Carroll told us distracted driving is the #1 killer of teens with over 4000 deaths in the last year. Distractions include alcohol, of course, along with texting. He highly recommended the GVC Safety Briefing Forum coming up Monday, March 2, from 1:30 PM to 3 PM at the GVR West Center. Part of the presentation is a movie made for just $15,000 with a phone. There was quite a lot of discussion with the Club, tales of horrible driving from the senior citizens in Green Valley (none of us, of course) on La Cañada, and we all remember drivers missing the brake and going through the walls of local buildings. In speaking of penalties, he said the only thing (fine) under $100 these days is a parking ticket. 

Last September, acting as Justice of the Peace, Judge Carroll performed the marriage ceremony for Pat and Michael’s grandson.

Makerspace Presentation (Rotary Club of Green Valley and Rotary District 5500 Matching Grant Project)

Jerry Kriebel volunteered to share his career with the Makerspace Club at a local school. The presentation included quite a bit of science, with details like the electron beam used to sterilize medical equipment can punch a hole in ¼ inch stainless steel in a fraction of a second. He described other methods -- gas and gamma rays – and the advantages and drawbacks of each. Pat Pease used a chemical dye and UV light to show how easily contagion can spread, and Michael modeled an epidemic with the MIT Scratch program.

Rotary News Around the Globe
Scientist, farmer, innovator, Rotarian

A plainsman with a PhD, Bob Quinn uses his 4,000-acre Montana spread as a laboratory to revive an ancient grain, rethink agricultural practices, and reinvigorate rural communities

Exodus

Since 2015, more than 4 million people have fled an economically devastated Venezuela. Tracking the stories of three who left puts faces on that staggering statistic.

More than a library

After the genocide of 1994, Rotarians led a successful campaign to build Rwanda’s first public library.

 
Thanks Green Valley
Thanks Green Valley, for making our Spaghetti Dinner a success!

February 12, 2020 It seemed like half of Green Valley showed up to help us raise money and eat spaghetti, garlic toast, cookies, etc. at the GVR West Social Center. Most of the Rotary Club of Green Valley turned out to volunteer for the event and all seemed to have a great time. President Paul Loomans gave out lots of money in the 50/50 raffle and gift certificates to Dominick's restaurant, our vendor for the event, to some lucky people.

  Stay tuned for our next event, coming right up!
