An important announcement to members and guests.
At our club meeting this week, April 8,  we will be adding to our weekly Zoom at Noon meeting format a limited "in-person" get together at Saddlebrooke One Clubhouse.  Here is how it will work. 
Those who would like to begin meeting in person can gather at the Roadrunner Grill beginning around 11:00- 11:15 am to enjoy fellowship.  Our members, by a substantial majority, voiced their preference that for the next 2 months the club adopt a policy that requires participants in the in-person meeting to have completed the Covid vaccination program.   We agreed that this restrictive policy would be reevaluated prior to June 1.    Following lunch and beginning at 12:00 Noon we will open an in-person meeting in the back of the Agave lounge area.  There will be no service at that time.  We will also link in the Zoom at Noon meeting in a Hybrid meeting format.  Please feel free to call Joe Guyton or Ed Treick if you would like additional information.
At our meeting on Thursday, April 8, our featured guest speaker will be James Horvath.

Oro Valley Marketplace by James Horvath
On Thursday, April 8, 2021 Saddlebrooke Rotarians and Guests will meet James Horvath, Founder and Chairman of Town West Realty.  If you would like to join us for this interesting presentation please contact Bob Christadore, Program Chairman, at or Joe Guyton, President, at
Established in 1980, Town West Companies are a conglomerate of real estate investment, development, and property management firms. TWR, Inc. and its affiliate companies own, operate and manage a significant real estate portfolio including approximately 2 million square feet of commercial/retail/office property, multi-family residential, and future development projects in Arizona.
The Oro Valley Marketplace, a once-envisioned community hub for the town, has coped with vacant storefronts for years. Town West purchased the 100-acre property in 2019.  Town West has already gone to work filling empty spaces. News of the purchase came with the announcement that Ashley Furniture HomeStore will move into a 45,000-square-foot space formerly occupied by Dick’s Sporting Goods.

On Thursday at the weekly meeting of  the Rotary Club of Saddlebrooke, members and guests will hear from Jim Horvath.   Jim is leading the redevelopment of the Marketplace.   The group plans to build an entertainment district, three new hotels, park, pool, apartments and more.

You don't want to miss this outstanding program.


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.
Baskets of Love From Saddlebrooke Rotary
Can you imagine fighting to make ends meet and receiving a "Basket of Love"?!
I think the 55 struggling families that we are serving will be THRILLED!
Our Rotary Club of SaddleBrooke was able to fund, shop, assemble and deliver these "Baskets of Love" full of laundry detergent & softener, cleaning supplies, sponges, ziploc bags, foil, toothpaste, shampoo/conditioner, kleenex, clorox wipes, and some little tokens of love - jelly beans, hershey kisses, and a cake with frosting!
A huge thank you to
- those that sponsored an item - Jim, Harvey, Wendy, Eric E., Gordon
- to our shopping elves: Ed T, Diane, Patsy, Linda
- to Harvey and Heather for hosting & yummy baked treats
- to all our assemblers
- to Liese, Harvey, Dan, Julia, Chris & Sheila who will be delivering the baskets!

Please keep Bill "Doc" Pohnert in your prayers as he continues his treatment for cancer.

Lessons From the Blue Zones

Program Speaker for March 4, 2021

Denise Steffan

My journey into health and wellness began in 1997 when I started receiving massage while working as a paralegal and competing as a cyclist. Faced with the demands of working full time and training for bike races, massage therapy proved to be a vital component to relieve stress and maintain a healthy body for competition. Inspired by the tremendous benefits, I made the decision to pursue a career in massage therapy.

I graduated from the 1000 hour program at the Desert Institute of the Healing Arts (DIHA) and have been a licensed massage therapist since December, 2000. Following graduation, I continued training through numerous continuing education programs and seminars which included Neuromuscular Therapy, Cranial Sacral Therapy, Ayurvedic Therapy, Hot Stone Massage, and Body Wraps.

As I worked with my massage clients, I realized nutrition played an integral part in how our bodies respond and heal. After many years of studying nutrition on my own, I began studying at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition and in December of 2013,  I became a Certified Health Coach.

During my training, I studied over 100 dietary theories, practical lifestyle management techniques, and innovative coaching methods with some of the world’s top health and wellness experts. My teachers included Dr. Andrew Weil, Director of the Arizona Center for Integrative Medicine; Dr. Deepak Chopra, leader in the field of mind-body medicine; Dr. David Katz, Director of Yale University’s Prevention Research Center; Dr. Walter Willett, Chair of Nutrition at Harvard University; Geneen Roth, bestselling author and expert on emotional eating; and many other leading researchers and nutrition authorities.

My education has equipped me with the knowledge and  skills to work with my clients to help them make lifestyle changes that produce real and lasting results.
