The Golder Ranch Fire District was created in 1977 by a vote of the residents in the area. The homeowners wanted to have a voice in their fire and medical care and at the same time, monitor costs. Today the District serves a 222 square mile area with a population of nearly 60,000 residents. Included in the District are the communities of Oro Valley, Catalina, SaddleBrooke and southern Pinal County.

In 2018, the 20th Annual Fore 4 Kids Charity Golf Tournament will partner with Make A Wish.  Make a Wish grants children with terminal or life altering illnesses with precious life experiences.  Ava Tomae was able to realize her dream of going to New York City with her family to be behind the scenes in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade.
Joe Pinella with Wendy Guyton
Instructor Joe Pinella has studied and practiced the ancient Chinese healing arts of Qigong and Tai Chi Kung for over fifty years. The real test of his experience came in 1991 when he broke his neck and back in a horrific auto accident in Flagstaff Arizona, that left him quadriplegic. Using these arts he was able to overcome severe disabilities and regain the use of his body, with no pain and no limitations. Desire.....Determination......and Dedication, coupled with these arts, gave him back his life! He now uses his personal healing experience to empower others to rehabilitate and recover their health and live a better quality of life using his “Healing Movements System”.
Jimmy Simmons, Wildlife Manager Supervisor Region V Tucson, fascinated members and Amigos of the SaddleBrooke Rotary Club meeting on January 25th as he described a Day in the Life of a Game and Fish Warden.  Jimmy described the many ways the department touches our lives, even if we don’t fish and hunt.  No taxpayer dollars support this department as all funding comes from licensing.
