Film Production in AZ: Past and Future

While Chuck is known locally as the Co-owner of Disney Premiere Properties, and the face on countless Fry's grocery carts, he also has a history in the film industry, and a passion to see it bloom here in Arizona.  With past experience as both pruducer and assistant director, and a substantial career in land development, Chuck planned for and proposed a serious film studio project some time ago...and you'll want to join the Verrado Rotary Club at 7am Tuesday, June 18 to enjoy the twists and turns in that story.   

Now, there is a possibility of a new film studio project West of our community, and Chuck will share what's known about that effort to date as well.  Join us Tuesday June 18 for this unusual and exciting conversation!

Last Week

Noel Carter, General Manager of The Buckeye Water Conservation and Drainage District was our guest speaker last week.  
The Buckeye Water Conservation and Drainage District (BWCDD) has a rich history that dates back to the 1880s, starting with the formation of the Buckeye Canal District. Over the years, as the local population expanded, the district adapted by constructing dams and implementing changes to safeguard the water rights of the Buckeye area. The transformation from a canal district to the BWCDD in 1907, marked a significant evolution in water management and conservation efforts. Today, the BWCDD continues to ensure that water resources are managed effectively, reflecting a commitment to sustainability and foresight. Notably, the current water usage per capita in Buckeye is lower than it was decades ago, demonstrating the success of these conservation strategies. Additionally, ongoing legislative efforts aim to further reinforce the protection of Buckeye's water resources, ensuring that they remain secure for the enjoyment and use of future generations.

Welcome Matt Pentland

The club welcomed Matt Pentland as our newest member, introduced by his sponsor Doug Bredow.  Matt's classification is Aerospace Sales Professional, but he will tell you the best job he has ever had is being a dad.  Matt his the father of two wonderful kids (his words) and husband to an amazing woman (again his words) Kristen Pentland.  Matt was born and raised in Mercer Island, Washington, and joined the Marine Corps after graduating from high school.  Matt graduated from Washington State University with a degree in Marketing and Economics in 2008 and entered the aerospace business.  In 2017, the Pentland family moved to Charleston SC to take over the east coast sales territory for a company based in Seattle. Matt and his family moved to Buckeye in October 2023, to be near his parents who now live in Victory and his sister who lives in California.  Matt enjoys fishing with his father, hunting, camping, and following economic conditions and the complex relationships between markets.  
Welcome to Verrado Rotary Matt.
