SaddleBrooke Rotary is More Than Retirees
July 18, 2021
 
SaddleBrooke, Arizona
 
 
SADDLEBROOKE ROTARY IS NOT JUST FOR RETIREES
 
Yes, it is true that in 1997 when the Rotary Club of SaddleBrooke was chartered it was the first Rotary Club in the nation whose members were retirees.  The SaddleBrooke communities, Robson Communities, restrict residents to 55 and over.
 
Since its founding the Rotary Club of SaddleBrooke has welcomed over 200 new members, mostly retirees who enjoy the fellowship and service so important to Rotary.  You might be surprised, however, to learn that today the Rotary Club of SaddleBrooke is much more than a retirement club.
Diversification has become a critical factor in the success and development of a Rotary club.  We want you to meet some of our members who are not retired.

Saddlebrooke Rotary Summer Meetings

Join us Thursday, June 3, 2021 for a special meeting.  The Rotary Club of SaddleBrooke will be meeting at SaddleBrooke Ranch during the summer months. Historically speaking, one reason why the world’s largest volunteer organization is called Rotary is because it originally met in rotating locations. In that spirit, and due to a growing number of new members from SaddleBrooke Ranch, the Rotary Club of SaddleBrooke will be meeting at the Ranch House at SaddleBrooke Ranch during the summer.

Our summer move will include weekly lunches and interesting programs on Thursdays, in the private room at the Ranch House. It will also include monthly happy hours at the Ranch House patio. This move will include meetings from June to October. Then the Rotary Club of SaddleBrooke will return to its home base at the SaddleBrooke One Clubhouse.

Saddlebrooke Rotary Plans In Person and Hybrid Meetings
WE ARE ANXIOUSLY ANTICIPATING REINSTATING IN-PERSON MEETINGS !!!!!!!
 
The Saddlebrooke community is blessed to have organizations such as Saddlebrooke Rotary and Saddlebrooke Senior Village, not to mention the Desert Life Pharmacy.
 
What a year we have had.  Thanks in a large part to Saddlebrooke Senior Village and Desert Life Pharmacy we are fast approaching full vaccination of our members, and we are now looking forward to once again meeting each other in person.  One of the great lessons learned has been the inclusive benefits of having a virtual meeting option.  We call ours Zoom at Noon.  During the Covid pandemic our club has been able to maintain active participation through this format, continuing to average about 30 participates per meeting.
 
We are developing alternative meeting options that may include hybrid (in-person and virtual) meetings, alternative meeting sites and other meeting upgrades.  In the weeks that follow we hope to begin limited in-person meetings which are consistent with safe Covid guidelines.  We are hopeful that by the beginning of the next Rotary year, July 1, 2021 we will be again meeting in person, but with the addition of Zoom access at the same time.  
 
Mark your calendars for a Celebration on Thursday, July 1, 2021(in person) as we Pass the Gavel to our next president, Liese Razzeto.
 
If you would have suggestions the following key meeting contacts are available to discuss these with you:
 
Joe Guyton, Club President
Ed Treick,  HOA1 options
Dan Watson, Saddlebrooke Ranch options
Gordon Wainwright and Joe Guyton, conferencing technology.

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.
