The International Service Committee has chosen to support a project to develop libraries in the elementary schools in the neighboring municipalities of Veracruz. This is an approved matching grant project, so The Rotary Club of Sedona's contribution of $2000 will be matched by our district and again by Rotary International to yield a total of $7000 for the project.
The Boca del Rio Costa de Oro Rotary Club has supported, with its own resources, the development of two public elementary schools in the urban area. Part of this support has been the development of their school libraries. Having completed that project, they decided to create a larger project to add libraries to more elementary schools in their area. This project aims to provide full libraries to 20 schools for an estimated cost of $36,500. The Rotary Club of Sedona and District 5490 are pleased to be part of this well planned project. Here is the project description and plan.
The Northern Arizona Chapter of the Association of Fundraising Professionals honored the Rotary Club of Sedona as the Outstanding Nonprofit Organization at its annual Philanthropy Day Award ceremony. Linda Clark, a member of the Association who had nominated the Rotary Club, was on hand to present the award. Among other community services, she cited the Imagination Library project, a literacy program, which mails books monthly to preschool children under the age of 5 in Sedona. She also highlighted the Slide Fire photo exhibit, which raised money to abate the post-fire ecological damage from the Slide Fire and to provide training for forest fire fighters.
