Doug May joins speaker, Lockwood Carlson
Lockwood Carlson PhD. is the President of SaddleBrooke's Astronomy Club.  Astronomy, the science of looking upward, is particularily popular in Tucson, because of our clear skies.   Lockwood Carlson received his PhD in theoretical physics from the University of Wyoming and did thesis research at Wyoming and Princeton on electrodynamics of black holes. Dr. Carlson is a SaddleBrooke resident who's research has promoted advancements in energy technology and medical devices.

L to R  Doug May, Kate Jenson, Scott Matlick and Robert Christadore
Ronald McDonald House Charities of Southern Arizona has been serving Tucson and Southern Arizona for 35 years.  In 2017 they will partner with SaddleBrooke Rotary Club to co-sponsor the Annual Fore For Kids Charity Golf Tournament.  Ronald McDonald House is a home away from home for families with critically ill children at no cost to families.  Hospitals served include Diamond Children's Center and Tucson Medical Center.  Respite Care; a circle of support; and a nursing conference for continuing education are three of the services they provide.

L to R  Linda Turbyfill, Julia Young, Joe Dylewski and Brian Ticknor participated in Saddlebrooke 
Rotary's annual Dictionary Visit at Coronado K-8 School in Catalina, Arizona.  Each year Coronado's 3rd grade classes (72 students) are presented with new Dictionaries/Almanacs which they can use throughout the school year.  These books are given to the students to take home when they graduate into 4th grade for family members to learn from. Saddlebrooke Rotary Club's Community Service Director, Linda Turbyfill, has headed this ten year project for three years.  This service is made possible by Amanda Magelli who is the Assistant Principal at Coronado K-8. 

Doug May presents Steve Wilson a plaque to thank him for speaking to Saddlebrooke Rotary.  Steve is a Saddlebrooke Resident who has has an illustrious career as a referee for College and Professional Football.  This dynamic man is from Spokane, Washington and now acts at a Pastor for Saddlebrooke Community Church.

Neil Deppe presents Mike Levin with a thank you plaque.  Mike is a representative from The Port of Tucson, which is 
Arizona's active Inland Port.  This active port makes it possible for Tucson to participate in International and Domestic Inter mobile Boxcar Train Service.  Most importantly, the port is 
Southern Arizona and Mexico's connection to the world by sending inland products to sea ports worldwide and reduced export cost.

Jay McCall has been successful in recruiting new members as he has started new clubs in District 5500.  Jay started Dove Mountain Rotary Club 10 years ago and it continues to thrive.  He also started Foothills Rotary and Presidio Rotary Downtown where he is a member today.  Mr. McCall stresses that the keys to Rotary Club survival are Leadership and Membership.  The two are intertwined.
