Jim Donaldson of the Mammoth San Manuel Education Foundation receives a donation from Benny DeSantiago of the San Manuel Rotary.

  The San Manuel Rotary Club closed their doors on March 16, 2016. The Rotary was a large part of the Tri-Community for 59 years, providing opportunities for everyone in the community. The Rotarians gave of themselves and their donations helped support and improve the community over the years. A few of the programs they were involved with included: the Rotary track meet; sponsoring Little League and other sports teams; support for 4th of July fireworks and other community events; support for education including student scholarships.

  The closure of the San Manuel Rotary involved their final donations to the community. They donated $663.25 to the Central Arizona College Aravaipa Campus – College for Kids Program. CAC College for Kids is a hands-on science program that has been bringing local children together to learn about science in a college setting for over 30 years.

  The Rotary has been assisting San Manuel High School graduates reach their higher educational goals by offering scholarships for many years. To keep that tradition alive. They have donated $5,000 to the Mammoth – San Manuel Education Foundation. This money will go towards two $500 scholarships for two senior graduates each year for five years.

  The San Manuel Rotary club will be missed. Thank you, Rotarians, for your service and dedication to the Tri-Community.
