In 1989 Vietnam Veterans of Yavapai County erected the Veterans Memorial on the west side of the courthouse. Neil Logan a Vietnam veteran created the bronze statue. Tony Shaw, also a Vietnam veteran and Sunup Rotary member gave the original dedication speech in 1989.  The base of the monument is granite stone from the quarry the courthouse was built with in 1916.
 
In 2006 John Stewart of Sunup Rotary Community Service spoke to Yavapai County about improvements to All Vets Memorial. Sunup added night lights, sprinkler system, benches and handicapped access.  There was a re-dedication in April 2006 and Tony Shaw once again gave the key note speech.  Since that time, Sunup and Ken Lain from Watters Nursery have teamed up to refresh and restore the site each year. Each year plants are added and the irrigation system is maintained. This year the bronze veteran was waxed and polished. 
 
 
Our second annual Double Down Casino Night was a huge success this year thanks to all those who stepped up not only from the Sunup Club but also Frontier Rotary, Prescott Rotary and Chino Valley Rotary. Rotarians that work together on projects and events get more our Rotary and our community. Special thanks once again to Jane Anne Shimizu for chairing the event and Jerry Fohrman for bringing in the tables, dealers, sponsors and drinks. Shoutouts to Ben Tuttle, Dan Davis, Billie Orr, Susan Cohan, Barbara Oemcke, Par Wood, AJ Sheridan, Bud Ackerman and those that stepped up to be dealers. This Tuesday evening at 5:30 at the palace, the committee will have a wrap up meeting to discuss what we have learned to make the event even better than last year.

Eye Opener!

 

Many thanks to Par Wood. Last Tuesday several Sunup members had the pleasure of touring the Yavapai College School of Career and Technical Education facility otherwise known as CTEC. John Morgan Dean of CTEC provided our group with Lunch and a 2 hour tour of the facility.

 
CTEC provides training and college courses that provide good paying jobs. They can learn trades such as 3D Printing using sophisticated state-of-the-art equipment.
 
 
 
 

The largest and most popular program is now fabricating and flying drones. Students learn how to use their drones in agriculture, search & rescue, firefighting and many other areas. The student built drone pictured is valued at about $15,000.

 

Other programs include Pre-Engineering, Computer Numerical Control, Gunsmithing, Welding, Air Traffic Control and many more. Salaries can range from $25/hr up to $100,000 per year.

At a recent Sunup Rotary Meeting several members of the Prescott Fire Dept. joined our group to demonstrate what happens when you call 911 for a heart attack victim. What an eye opener for Sunup Rotary members. Highly trained fire department personnel demonstrated with an actual person how they handle an emergency. Each person has a specific job in a specific position for a reason. It's a choreographed concert of professionals that saves lives. Never a dull moment at a Rotary Meeting!
