Jazz in the Desert is now in the books. If you are wondering how we did financially, you will have to wait until Jim Rusk and Gary Friedman make their report during the meeting. I was very impressed with all of Valle Verde Rotarians, both regulars and Sojourners, who work during the day on Saturday. It was good to see so many new and old faces involved. You might have missed three of us during the matinee performance--Phil Silvers, Ray Cook and myself. We were on site at the Peaks, La Posada and Silver Springs as the matinee was being, in one case trying to be, lived streamed. We had some technical difficulties but we are getting better at this endeavour. Hopeful, we will get it right at all of the sites next year.
 
Here are some reminders of other activities and up coming events:
  1. March is the Food Fight to End Hunger month. We will be collecting money for the local food banks--Green Valley-Amado and the Sahuarita food banks. Check can be made to the food bank of your choice for the AZ Tax Credit program. Cash and checks are welcome.
  2. Thirsty Thursday is next Thursday at Las Agaves. This is a venue change if you have an old events calendar.
  3. The Sojourners Farewell Party is a week from Saturday at the Sunset Ramada. Max Perry has taken this over from Ron Darrah who is missing at sea.
