Get prepared for wildfire and other emergencies

Linda Niles, with Yavapai County Emergency Management, is helping the community prepare for wildfire and other emergencies. She said Stage One fire restrictions will be in place on Friday (April 20) for Yavapai County and some restrictions for Coconino County. Her function also oversees the Medical Reserve Corp and emergency phone banks. She said they are also working to identify those who will need evacuation assistance i.e. persons in wheel chairs. Linda said the number one reason people don't evacuate is safety of their pets. She said they've opened an animal disaster shelter next to the Red Cross. And people can keep their service animals with them. Linda recommends everyone pack a 24-hour bag and/or a 72-hour kit, preferably on rolling wheels. She adds the kits should be changed out every 30 days. For items to include in evacuation kits go to:  You can also sign up for emergency alerts from the Sheriff's Office at:
Club President Dave Young announced the book "My Friends Make Me Happy" will be donated to the Sedona Public Library on Linda's behalf. Thanks for visiting Linda!
Meeting Highlights

Rotary Student Ambassador Hunter White has desire to run for President of the United States

Sedona Charter Middle School student Hunter White (3rd right) was recognized by the club during its April 17 meeting for leadership and encouragement of fellow students. While Hunter served as one of three directors of the Middle School's film project, he inspired and encouraged students to work together, said his acting teacher Lauren Hendler (4th left). "Hunter excelled at this. He served as director, peace-maker and leader of the film," she adds. Hunter was also selected by the head of SCS's Anti-Bullying Prevention Committee to act as a member of the Compliance Team. The position provided Hunter the opportunity to listen to an active bullying case and collaborate with three adults in deciding its outcome and consequences. Hunter's principal teacher Lauren Rondeau said he has the ability to articulate about difficult subjects as well as his passion for the world and how it operates. "He has expressed a desire to run for President of the United States, and I do believe he can achieve this lofty endeavor." Also celebrating his award are grandparents Jean (far left) and Patrik Dummigan (sitting front), parents Josh and Maureen White (2nd & 3rd left), Rotarian Russ Snider, Village Club (2nd left) and Club President Dave Young.

Outbound Rotary student preparing for Sweden

Past President Jennette Bill presents Miranda Di Angelo with club flags to take to Sweden for her Rotary exchange year. Her first weeks will be at a language camp. Since deciding to go on exchange, Miranda has been engaged in Rotary. She spent a weekend with her parents at outbound orientation, attended RYLA at Camp Pinerock in Prescott, and was a junior counselor at RYLA Camp Ponderosa outside Payson.  She will also be at District 5495 Conference at the Wigwam with all of our inbound and outbound exchange students. You go Miranda!


Jean Barton receives PHF +1 Pin --Learn how you can become a Paul Harris Fellow

Club Foundation Chair Dick Youngberg (center) and Club President Dave Young present Rotarian Jean Barton with her Paul Harris Fellow plus One Pin. Dick says when you give $1,000 or more to the Rotary Foundation Annual Fund, PolioPlus, or an approved Foundation grant, you are awarded a point from the Rotary Foundation for each dollar contributed. In our club we have given an incentive bonus of 500 points to first time donors once they reach $500 in personal donations. When the Rotary Foundation is notified of the bonus they forward the Paul Harris Award pin and Certificate to the club. Subsequent awards are presented to members for each $1,000 donated. There are many other ways to support the foundation such as through estate planning or Rotary Direct which is an automatic donation to the foundation on a monthly, quarterly or annual basis. For more details on supporting Rotary Foundation's important work go to:
You can also submit a check to the club. Please make your check out to: Rotary Club of Sedona Charitable Fund, and on the memo line write the name of the type of donation  (Rotary Foundation Annual Fund, Polio Plus, etc).
Way to go Jean!
