1. President Ed has appointed Len LaFlesch as our new club Treasurer.  He will help Jandi with her various Rotary bookkeeping tasks.
2. Jack Beveridge is looking for sponsors and donations for the 7th Annual Power of Wellness Luncheon on April 27th.  You can also donate to their Foundation and receive AZ tax credits for your donation up to $800 per couple. The Foundation will help pay for people to attend the luncheon.  Contact Jack with questions or donations.
3. The club presented Paul Harris Fellow awards to Chief Paul Bourgeois of Superstition Fire and Medical and to Chief Tom Kelly of the Apache Junction Police Department. Both awards were for the excellence shown by their organizations and their leadership in providing public safety services to our communities. The presentation was made by AJ City Manager and club Past-President Bryant Powell.
4. Mike Dungan brought us the news of the day.
5. Aaron McDermid raised fine money "for the children".
6. President Ed announced he will be gone for the next 3 weeks to have shoulder surgery and physical therapy.  Several past presidents will fill in for him while he is recovering.
7. The drawing was worth $67 today.  Alex Blais won the drawing and $10 but drew the ace of hearts. 
City Manager Bryant Powell brought us up to date with some happenings in Apache Junction.  The Flatiron Community Park will be inaugurated on April 22 from 5:00-8:30 PM.  Our club donated $10,000 toward the splash pad in the park.
The Pinal Regional Transportation plan proposes a north-south freeway connecting US 60 in Apache Junction with US 10 in Eloy.  The US 60 link would be at Mountain View Road.  There is a public hearing on the proposed route on Thursday, March 23rd at the MultiGen Center in AJ from 5:00-9:00 PM.  There is no Gold Canyon bypass in ADOT's current 5-year plan but what is planned is an extension of US 24 from Mesa-Gateway Airport east to join Ironwood Rd. The AJ City Council has approved a closure plan for the landfill.  It will remain open for the next 17 years but then a new landfill site will have to be found. Construction on the Fry's Marketplace store is proceeding.  There will be several other businesses located next to Fry's as well.  AJ is considering an 0.5% sales tax increase. 
Thanks Bryant for being a dynamic force for positive changes in Apache Junction and for your membership in our club.
