A third new Rotary Club is being formed in the Northwest.

Jay McCall, a Northwest resident who helped found the new Foothills Rotary Club and served as its charter president, is beginning the Canyon Rotary Club.

It will meet on Thursday evenings at the Metropolitan Grill, with a 5:30 p.m. social time and a dinner meeting at 6.

Its first and informational meeting is scheduled for Thursday, Jan. 29.

Before forming the Foothills Club, McCall facilitated the Dove Mountain Rotary Club. “My goal is to form at least four new Rotary Clubs in the Tucson metroplex to add at least 100 new members to Rotary,” he said.

Rotary was founded in 1905 in Chicago by young attorney Paul Harris to build a circle of friendships for social and business purposes. The organization grew. Early on, members became involved in meeting community needs.

Today Rotary International offers “Service above Self” for more than 1.2 million members in 200 countries and territories through more than 32,000 clubs.

“Rotary membership offers professional networking while working on projects and programs that enrich communities locally and globally,” he said.

The Marana capital improvements improvements are expected to take years to complete as Marana finds the best plan of action to complete the projects and fund the improvements. Do you think this is a good idea?

The town of Marana is looking at ways to do capital improvements to the oldest neighborhoods in Marana. Over the next few months the town will survey older neighborhoods and see what amenities they need and form a plan to make sure neighborhoods have paved roads, sidewalks, adequate drainage, lighting and even pocket parks. “We want to make sure that every neighborhood has a base standard for infrastructure,” said Marana Town Manager Gilbert Davidson. The improvements are expected to take years to complete as Marana finds the best plan of action to complete the projects and fund the improvements. Do you think this is a good idea?

How do you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women?

During the Jan. 20 town council meeting, a vote was unanimously passed to look into the feasibility of a “Memorial Public Art Project,” at the request of Oro Valley resident Dick Eggerding to potentially be placed somewhere in the town to honor military veterans and first responders. Though no concrete plans were then ready to act on, there was a show of overwhelming support for such project from residents and staff alike during the council meeting. In an effort to poll to community at-large, The Explorer would like to know how you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women.
