Check out our video all about Four Peaks Rotary club!  Rotarians in Action, "Service Above Self and One Profits Most Who Serves Best."
Four Peaks Rotary Club is an international service and humanitarian organization based in Fountain Hills, Arizona.  Our members focus on the needs of our community, world, environment, promoting peace, fighting disease, saving mothers and children, supporting education and our future generations.
Four Peaks Rotary Foundation raised over $100,000 for giving in 2022-2023. The funds were distributed amongst Non-Profit organizations within the local Fountain Hills community and around the world.  The Foundation graciously thanks all Rotarians and Rotary supporters who helped us accomplish our club purpose of bringing warmth, commitment and care to those in need.

On May 29th Four Peaks Rotarians participated in their annual Memorial Day Flag presentation.  Thank you to all of the community volunteers who helped us place nearly 2500 flags around the Fountain Park walkway and Avenue of the Fountains this morning. We honor and remember those brave individuals who made the ultimate sacrifice in securing our American freedoms. We wish you all a very peaceful Memorial Day.  A special mention and thank you for some our Fountain Hills Toastmasters group joining in to help.  
In May of 2019, Rotary International and Toastmasters International formed a unique strategic alliance, drawing from the strength of their many similarities and complementary differences.  The opportunity for Toastmasters members is primarily to establish fellowship and make new connections, contribute more to communities, and potentially elevate clubs. Rotary members have the opportunity to develop new skills and may ask to visit Toastmasters clubs or receive evaluations. Toastmasters also developed eight educational courses for Rotarians and Rotaractors, available on Rotary International’s Learning Center, which can be accessed by their members in nine languages.
On May 6, 2023 the Four Peaks Rotarians held a FUN DAY at their 2nd Annual Kentucky Derby Run for the Roses fundraiser to support the Midwest Rotary Disaster Fund and Rotary Polio Fund.  Special guest appearance by Tender Little Heart ponies who were "making friends, warming hearts, sharing smiles and spreading joy, one tender little heart at a time." This year's event was held at the beautiful Desert Canyon Golf Club.
On behalf of the Four Peaks Rotary club we appreciate the generosity from participators, sponsors, and the Rotarian Derby Committee; Robin Brand, Debbie Clason, Sandy Davis, Julie Ewald, Denise Ricketts, Gary Shuey and Coco Pameditis who supported our event to a successful outcome. 
Here's a big dose of cuteness to brighten your day....

Thank you to all who contributed labor hours and materials. We couldn't have done it without all the kind supporters for the school.  The next school season the Middle School students will be attending their classes in the newly painted rooms at the High School location.

Meals will be distributed locally to the Extended Hands Food Bank of Fountain Hills, AZ Brainfood, which serves school children in the Valley, Native American Urban Ministry and Native American Connections.

In addition, meals will also be distributed internationally by the Food for Kidz organization, wherever the meals are needed for victims of disaster, wars or unrest. This year’s meals will be sent to Ukraine, Haiti and Honduras.

On Saturday, February 11, 2023 the 1st Annual Fountain Hills Community Health Fair was held by Four Peaks Rotarian Debbie Clason of Clason Communications in efforts to support Healthy Fountain Hills lifestyles and health awareness for the Fountain Hills Community! Exhibitors, Educational Presentations, Blood Mobile and MOM (Mammogram Mobile) made for an outstanding afternoon at the FHUSD Learning Center.  Congratulations Debbie for a well-attended community event and project for you club Rotarians. 
Four Peaks Rotary participates at the annual Activities & Volunteer EXPO on January 25, 2023 at the Community Center sharing their message with the community, recruit new members and network with   other clubs and organizations in town. Attendees learn about Rotary opportunities, gather information  and speak to club representatives Todd Harris (President), Julie Ewald (President-Elect), and John Gianotti   (Foundation Member). A wonderful time spent with the Community of Fountain Hills! 

To think there are thousands of people living in Arizona without access to basic plumbing and clean, running water is unimaginable. But that is precisely the case for the Navajo Nation, located in parts of Arizona, New Mexico, and Utah.

In 2019 Jeff Poynter was optimistic that the project fits well with Four Peaks Rotary’s vision. “We’re a club that wants to help as many people as possible. This is a tremendous opportunity for Four Peaks Rotary to step up and really make a difference in many lives.”

DigDeep was able to install nine home water systems to Navajo families in Dilkon before the pandemic brought the project to a halt. Dilkon is a town on the Navajo Nation located in Northeastern Arizona. Below, Rotarian Project Champion, Paul Perreault and 2022-2023 President Todd Harris on location with the DigDeep team.  Future updates coming in Spring of 2023
Back in 2019, Four Peaks Rotary President-elect Jeff Poynter (left) and Rotary International project coordinator Jim Bissonet shared Rotary’s plan to initiate underground cistern systems to hundreds of homes in the Navajo Nation. Four Peaks Rotary is hopeful of becoming a part of this Rotary International effort to supply clean water and electricity to the Navajo Nation.  

A wonderful evening at FireRock Country Club celebrating the successes of 2022 with fellow Rotarians.  In addition to celebrating the 25th club year, the club also celebrated the year of giving by distributing over a $100,000 to local and global non-profits and people in need.  Congratulations Four Peaks Rotarians, cheers to a prosperous 2023 and next 25 years!  See our FaceBook Reels highlights.
