Water is Life: the history of the Buckeye Irrigation Canal
Water is Life:  the history of the Buckeye Irrigation Canal

Noel Carter, the general manager of Buckeye Water Conservation and Drainage District (BWCDD), is dedicated to protecting valuable water resources for farmers in the same area where his ancestors homesteaded and farmed in the late 1890s, attracted by the 1885 Buckeye Canal. Now, in sprawling nearby Phoenix, legislators and state agencies are eyeing his district’s water as tiered shortages are declared on the Colorado River.  Noel knows West Valley water, and we're grateful to have him with us to share it's background...the Buckeye Irrigation Canal.

Last Week

Our speaker last week was our own Dr. Richard Mucci.  Dr. Mucci is a retired surgeon who had devoted a great deal of time to the issue of healthiness and ways to achieve improved health through changes in behavior, lifestyle and self-care.  Last weeks presentation was very carefully researched and organized and offered a number of suggestions for improving our health especially as we age.  A few hightlights
  • One thing is certain...if you treat hour health casually, you will become a casualty
  • Allowing yourself to be unhealthy is one of the most selfish things you can do.  It impacts you and everyone who loves you, both family and friends (society)
  • Self-care is the very best health-care

David Johnson Honored by Club

In a recent ceremony, President Cheryl honored David Johnson with a distinguished Paul Harris Fellow pin adorned with two sapphires, signifying his substantial contributions exceeding $3,000 to the Rotary Foundation of Rotary International. This esteemed recognition reflects David's commitment to the Foundation's global efforts to foster peace, goodwill, and international understanding through various humanitarian projects. The Rotary Foundation, established over a century ago, has been instrumental in channeling over $4 billion into sustainable initiatives that have profoundly impacted health, education, environmental sustainability, and poverty alleviation.
David's philanthropy has been pivotal in supporting the Rotary Foundation's mission, which is lauded with the highest 4-star rating from Charity Navigator, reflecting its exceptional governance and effectiveness. His contributions aid the Foundation in its noble pursuit, representing the collective spirit of the 1.3 million Rotarians around the world.

The culture of giving is deeply ingrained in the ethos of the Rotary Club, with many members regularly contributing to the Foundation's annual fund. These donations are vital in sustaining the Foundation's ongoing projects and initiatives. For those interested in joining this cause and making a difference, Mike Hosking stands ready to guide potential benefactors on how they can contribute to this remarkable journey of global service and impact.
