We are thrilled to start up the Student of the Month program again by honoring Grace Liberati as the Student of the Month (October) for Ponderosa High School.  Grace joined us at our October 8 Zoom meeting, along with her parents Jon and Sandra Liberati and her math teacher Neal Rosengren.
Grace has served the Ponderosa community in a variety of roles, including as an English tutor, on Student Council, Ponderosa Activity Cabinet, Ponderosa Athletic Council, Link Crew, and as an officer in DECA.  She is a member of the National Honor Society and the National English Honors Society. She has also been on the varsity tennis team throughout her high school career and serves as the manager of the boys’ tennis team. 
Grace has applied to a variety of colleges and is considering majors in criminology, political science and journalism.  Congratulations, Grace!  We wish you the best in your future endeavors.
Honoring the Parker Police Department looks a little different in a pandemic, but behind those masks are Parker Police Chief Jim Tsurapas and Club President Pat Kendrick.  Pat is presenting Chief Tsurapas with a copy of the resolution adopted by the club on July 2, honoring the service of the department.  As the resolution notes, the "Parker Police Department has long been at the forefront of community-oriented policing and has practiced transparency when dealing with the public and in the implementation of policies that ensure fair and respectful interaction with the citizens it serves."  For the full text of the resolution, click here
We mourn the death of long-time Rotarian Irv Buck on August 17, 2020.  Irv had just celebrated his 86th birthday.

A group of Rotarians was able to get together in person to launch a project to refurbish the garden at Praying Hands Ranch, a therapeutic riding center.  Judging by the amount of debris that was generated, the work mornings were a great success!  See the before and after photos below.  Thank you to Ron Sorlein for organizing the event.
What the garden looked like when we started -- a jungle
After the first work morning -- the garden structure revealed!
