This year from June 8-13, for the first time in Utah Rotary District 5420 history, their annual conference was held not only outside Utah, but outside the U.S. Puerto Peñasco was the appreciative beneficiary of a phenomenal amount of Rotary services, donations, and presentations of valuable and needed equipment and funds during the conference…
Non-profit, all volunteer Friends In Deed, operating out of Green Valley, Arizona, have been providing equipment at no charge to the handicapped for nearly 20 years. They receive donations of equipment every year and to make room for new equipment this year, they want to donate items to help the Rocky Point needy. Our Guest Blogger, Jack Hecker, is hoping to facilitate this generous offer helping to find good folks with a pickup or trailer who can bring the equipment to Rocky Point. Read about it and get the contact details in this blog!

Circus Mexicus is not just a musical event. What many of us look forward to each year is our Peacemaker Family coming together. I started a Facebook page four years ago in an effort to compliment fundraising efforts of the annual Hot Dog and A Smile event. It started out initially with the help of our good friends and Rocky Point residents Mark and Barb Olszewski getting us the Wish List. Each year our group has grown and now we have well over 500 members.
So put your money on a Ducky’s behind for just $5 dollars—or even better, get three numbers on three Duckies for just $10 dollars, and the coup de Ducky?, get six Duckies racing for you for just $20 ducks—err–bucks! All your money is going to make a bunch of Puerto Peñasco school children able to study more with the right kinds of supplies through the nonprofit organization, Adopt-a-Classroom, which helps thousands of kids in 13 schools, including one school in Port Lobo.
Sandy Spain and Barb Olszewski get together every year and throw a great old fashioned pancake breakfast and silent auction that raises money to pay the electric bills to keep the non-profit Esperanza Para Nueva Vida Community Center in San Rafael open during the summer. This has kept the kids off the streets and the parents learning skills such as sewing, haircutting and computer use for years…
This is a very popular boat trip that sells out every year because folks love to help Mark and Barb Olszewski raise money for school supplies and other needs of the 13 schools and 4400 students they’ve been helping for the last 15 years. Tickets are only $55 per person and this year the trip will be aboard the beautiful and spacious 96 ft. Pacifica. So there’s plenty of room for your ice chest (this is a BYO affair), your snorkel gear and most anything else you want to bring along. The trip departs at 8:00AM on Sunday May 24th.
