Halloween Food Drive This Wednesday!
Hey don't forget to bring a can of soup or box of cereal to this weeks meeting. Rich Hernandez will be taking it to Yavapai College students who sometimes come up a little short after paying tuition. Maybe you have forgotten but college is expensive and students burn a lot of calories in those brain cells. Lets give them a hand! Thank you.
Meeting Highlights Oct 24, 2018
Meeting Highlights and Great Extractions:
Jane Anne brought in the words from a song from World War 2 called Thank the Lord and Pass the Ammunition and Ray Carlson was able to play a YouTube video to accompany us. This song was written in response to the bombing of Pearl Harbor.   It was great fun.  AJ won the Pot and there were happy bucks all around.  Richard Hernandez reminded everyone to bring food next week for the Halloween food drive.
Our Speaker for Last Meeting: Makenzie Rogers and Darla DeVille from APS were our speakers.  Darla is the Community Affairs Manager at Arizona Public Service (APS) and Makenzie is the new division manager     for North West Arizona.  Makenzie related that APS is all about Service Above Self.  They have been keeping Arizona ON for over 135 years.  She over sees construction and maintenance.  Makenzie said that safety and reliability is who APS is and what they stand for.  She stated that ‘We walk the talk’. 
APS serves 11 of the 15 counties in Arizona covering 34,646 miles of service to over 2.7 million people.  APS is the largest taxpayer in Arizona. Arizona gets 50% of its electricity from solar and it ranks third in the Nation.
The 2018 storm season was the worst storm season in 5 years.  In 2016 there were 2,813 lightening strikes, in 2017 there were 2400 lightening strikes and in 2018 there were 12,000 lightening strikes. 
As far as Prop 127 is concerned Arizona Public Service believes that we have a much better ‘clean energy’ plan because Arizona utilizes nuclear power with solar and wind.  If Prop 127 is passed Arizona’s electric rates would be increased 5X what it is now.  Prop 127 ‘s verbiage ‘irrespective to the cost to consumers’ makes it a negative proposition for Arizona.

Good morning Sun-Up.  … As Rich reminded us this past Wednesday, we have a great “giving” opportunity coming up with The Yavapai College Roteract club’s food drive.  Actually, this event is something of a “twofer” … and demonstrates the power of Rotary to amplify the effect of service to the    community.  Participating in the food drive is a great way to give back to the community, and it’s also a great way to show our support for the Yavapai College club.   Sooo .. be sure to mark this coming Wednesday’s meeting date and bring some “donatable” food items.
