Club installs new president 

Dr. Jean Barton was installed as Rotary Club of Sedona's President for 2022-23 during the Installation Ceremony held July 12 at Courtyard by Marriott. Inspired by Rotary International's 2022-23 theme, "Imagine Rotary," she asked club members to "Imagine Rotary in Sedona" and what its three clubs can do when they unite to make Sedona a better place for its children, youth, and its working families. Barton kicks off her term with the Great Sedona and Verde Valley Chili Cook-Off, being held for the first time in several years at a new date and location: Sunday, Oct. 2, 2022, 12 to 3:30 p.m. at Sedona Performing Arts Center. The fundraiser’s theme, “Working Hard for Working Families,” will benefit programs that help kids, their parents, our school and our workforce: West Sedona School’s Extended Day Program, Imagination Library, Hope House, and Rotary's Junior High Youth Leadership Programs, Barton said.
