On Thursday February 25, 2021 members and guests will meet Dr. John Tanner.  
Dr. Tanner suffered near-fatal cardiac arrest eleven years ago. Since then, he has studied intensely the causes of heart disease, the leading killer in this country. To his surprise, he found that heart disease can be completely avoided through a proper diet, and that cancer, stroke, diabetes, high blood pressure, and about 30 other diseases can be reduced, avoided, or reversed by this same diet. While the overwhelming majority of us think we are eating healthy, unless we change, research indicates that about ⅔ of us will die needlessly from diseases caused by our poor diet. In this talk, John will tell us his story and the scientific information we need to avoid heart disease and other leading killers.

On Thursday February 18, 2021 we enjoyed again learning about the great program worldwide that is provided by Shelter Box.  Donald Jorgensen Ph.d.,CEAP, Past President of the Marana Rotary Club was our speaker on Shelter Box. Donald is a 10 year Rotarian and chose Shelter boxes as his service project.

85 million people around the world have been made homeless by natural disaster and conflict. We're working to change this.
By providing emergency shelter and tools for families robbed of their homes by disaster, we're transforming despair into hope.

Oro Valley's Future is Bright
Oro Valley's Outlook is Bright
Rotarians from Saddlebrooke and their guests were treated to a remarkably interesting presentation by Dave Perry, President of the Oro Valley Chamber of Commerce during their regular meeting on Thursday, February 11, 2021.  Perry himself a former Rotarian reviewed the many exciting developments and initiatives that residents and visitors to Oro Valley will see in the future.
One such development that Perry discussed was the Town West Realty's multi-purpose development in the Marketplace at the southwest corner of Oracle Road and Tangerine Road.  He also spoke of the new University of Arizona College of Veterinary Medicine located in the Foothills Business Park across from Steam Pump Ranch on Oracle Road.
Perry emphasized the need for improvements in Oracle Road as the rapid growth in Oro Valley and other communities has significantly affected this important arterial road in northern Pima County.

The Rotary Club of SaddleBrooke
It takes the work of many members to run a very active club like The Rotary Club of SaddleBrooke.  We are very thankful to our members who contribute so much to our club!  We could NOT do all we do without the leadership of a number of our members!

Please keep Bill "Doc" Pohnert in your prayers as he continues his treatment for cancer.
Also, please keep Peggy and Emerson Knowles in your prayers.  Peggy was recently diagnosed with breast cancer and will be undergoing surgery.  The good news from Peggy is that: 
"Found-out today that my tumor is cancer.
On the up-side, it is contained and should be treatable with a lumpectomy and follow-up radiation😊
I have an appointment to consult with a surgeon next Monday, and hope to get it scheduled here on Kauai ASAP.  All in all, I couldn’t be more blessed to be here in Kauai while dealing with this!
My prognosis is pretty good and I’m feeling very positive about it!!
God Bless,"
Finally, Our Rotarian friend, Leslie Hawkins, fell while walking her dogs and found she needed a cast on her arm.  Please remember Leslie as she may need a helping hand.
We would LOVE to see all our members on Zoom.  The hard part is getting the FREE app and set up your smartphone, iPad, tablet, laptop, or desktop computer. After that, it's easy.  You just click on the link in the email.  If members need help getting set up with Zoom, please let Joe Guyton at 520 820 0134 know so he can help you!
