With less than one month to go before the Caballeros de Yuma’s Tacos & Tunes Festival, which will be held on Friday, September 24th and Saturday, September 25th at the Desert Sun Stadium Complex, we need volunteers to fill all of the open slots on the attached schedule.  This festival is very similar to the Midnight At The Oasis (MATO) car show that our club has participated at since 2013, as our club will be selling beer tickets and serving beer in the “Food Court” area of the Desert Sun Stadium complex.
 
 
 
 
Post Pandemic Bowlio 2021 was a great success. Yuma Area Rotary Clubs came together on  August 14th at Inca Lanes, 1250 West 16th Street to support the Rotary International Polio Plus fund.  There was plenty fun, food and liquid refreshments. It was great to get back into the community and share our Rotary message to improve the lives of others here in Yuma and around the world. The thoughtfulness from our local Yuma Rotarians and the support from our Sponsors raised $4,655. After all expenses paid a check for $3698  was sent to the Rotary International Pilio Plus fund.
 
The winning Rotary Club with the highest score was Rotary Club of Yuma Crossing. They received the Mary McCloud Memorial Trophy and bragging rights for a year.
 
A second team from the Rotary Club of Yuma Crossing also won the Thomas Crapper Trophy for the lowest team score. 
 
Thank you Rotarians, friends and sponsors for your support.
