Rotary Club of Sedona #1 for Giving
District 5495 Governor Elizabeth Mahoney announced Rotary Club of Sedona is number one in the district for annual giving per capita for 2019-20. She made the announcement during the club's virtual Holiday Social held Dec. 15. "You are such a giving club," Mahoney said. "I just wanted to stop by and say thank you for your generosity." The club, which averages about 30 members, raised just shy of $1,000 per person during the past year, through annual donations to Rotary Foundation, club fundraisers, and now leading phase 2 of Rotary's Navajo Water Project.
