Ryan Garcia (executive director) presented  our club on November 15th with an update on the Kingman Area Food Bank.  Our club has been a strong advocate and supporter of the food bank and was excited to present Ryan with a check for $500.   We also plan to make another donation in December.   Visit the food banks website at to find out more information! 
We are so pleased to announce that we have resumed meeting live at the Dambar. Please make every effort to attend, there is plenty of room for social distancing and we have some great programs lined up for you.
Due to the rising cases of COVID-19 in Kingman, we have decided to halt our weekly meetings.  We hope everyone stays safe and makes good choices.  See you in 2021.
The Kingman Rotary Club has resumed meeting for lunch at the Dambar Steakhouse, Wednesday @ 12 p.m. Social distancing is encouraged and if you prefer to wear a mask you are welcome to do so. We look forward to seeing you once again!
We were pleased to hear a presentation from Kingman's Police Chief Rusty Cooper. Chief Cooper shared current events in the law enforcement spectrum and talked about keeping our officers safe as well as the public. He answered several of our member's questions as well. Great information Chief! 
We sang "Happy Birthday" boisterously to our Chief Deputy to celebrate his great day. Happy Birthday Evan Kunert !!

District Governor Dave Simmer attended the club lunch on Sept. 25, 2019. He shared the importance of Rotarians being "People of Action" by sharing everywhere what we do and proudly wearing our Rotary pins. He also talked about our new theme "Rotary Connects the World" and shared that there were only 3 reported cases of polio this year due in large part to the efforts of Rotary and vaccinations in many countries. There are only 2 countries remaining, Afghanistan and Nigeria, for polio to be completely eradicated. His presentation was very enthusiastic and motivational. 
Kingman Rotary Club Welcomes 4 New Members! We were very happy to induct new Rotarians from left to right: Suzy Conklin, Kurtis Yoakum, Kristen Ott, and Gretchen Dorner. They bring their individual areas of expertise and knowledge to our club. 
Mr. John Blake gave the club a presentation on what support he provides the schools athletes.  He had the Lucero girls demonstrate how to properly wrap an ankle before a game.
Charlie and Tammy Lucero have much to be proud of, their oldest daughter Paige is accomplishing great things.  Paige spoke about her years at Lee Williams and her accomplishments as well as her goals for the future.  She will be an asset to athletic medicine someday.

Matt Grimes, Student Rotarian.  Matt is involved in the Key Club as President, they participate in conducting blood drives.  Last year they were able to draw 250 units of blood that ultimately effected 500 people.  He is a member of the National Honor Society as well as a percussionist in the schools marching band.  Matt was honored with a scholarship for $84,000 to attend the prestigious school, Embry Riddle.  Matt's goal is to ultimately become a commercial airline pilot.  Good luck to you Matt!
Debi Sherwood had the program honors today, she invited Bill Ward of The Club for Youth, formerly known as The Boys and Girls Club.  Bill fosters an environment rich in positivity, structure and support consisting of many forms.  Whether the children need assistance with homework or help with everyday problems, the Club is there.  Bill is anticipating a move to a larger facility, construction to start as early as 2020.  Donations are not only welcomed but necessary to make their goals.  Thank you to Bill for making a difference in Kingman's youth.
Courtney Mossor, Senior at Kingman High School.  Courtney has many achievements here in Kingman and will undoubtedly achieve many more in the US Navy.  She is our first Student Rotarian of 2018.
