The Rotary Club of SaddleBrooke is celebrating the many accomplishments of the 2020-21 year and the beginning of the 2021-22 year with dinner and dancing at the Ranch House at SaddleBrooke Ranch. Each year, our club celebrates the passing of the gavel with a special meeting. We are thrilled that this year’s celebration will be in person.

Joe Guyton has served as president of the Rotary Club of SaddleBrooke during one of the most trying years, 2020 and 2021. The club never missed a beat. We continued to have weekly gatherings on Zoom, as well as a hybrid option with both Zoom and an in-person lunch and meeting.

During the pandemic, the Rotary Club of SaddleBrooke never stopped serving our community and its needs during these trying times. On a monthly basis, members of the club continued to provide for the special needs of our community during these unprecedented times. From food distribution to necessities for young mothers, the Rotary Club of SaddleBrooke was there for those in our area.

Everyone who has been the president of an organization knows that being a club president is a full-time job, which needs full-time support from the team on the home front. Joe Guyton’s sidekick, Wendy, has been there to support the club in every way. In addition to helping with the day-to-day needs of the organization, Wendy also serves as the membership chair.

The Rotary Club of SaddleBrooke is excited about our upcoming year. We have been meeting at the boardroom of the Ranch House at SaddleBrooke Ranch for lunch and a program on Thursdays. The meetings are hybrid, as we also stream the event on Zoom. We will continue to meet at the Ranch until October, when we will return to having meetings in SaddleBrooke.

Rotary is the world’s largest organization of volunteers. Rotary is found in more countries than the Red Cross. We gather as friends in local clubs to learn, grow, and make a difference. If this sounds of interest to you, check out our friendly club. We’ll be meeting for lunch on Thursdays at the Ranch House from June through October. We’ll also be hosting some happy hours at the Ranch House. If you would like more information, contact Wendy Guyton at 520-404-5712 or [email protected].
