In a great game with remarkable skills and sportsmanship for team members at both Vista Grande HS and Union HS in Casa Grande, the winner this year was Union HS.  Thanks to Rotarians Robert Romo and Imelda Marquez, also parents of the Union HS Football Stars, for presenting the trophy to the winning team. Congratulations Union HS and thanks to Vista and Union players for their great skill and sportsmanship.
 
 
 
The Casa Grande Rotary Club established a Go Fund Me page to invite those with a generous heart and the financial ability to assist in the ongoing project of providing meals to families in Casa Grande impacted by the COVID pandemic.  The city experienced and increase in unemployment and the club started providing hot, ready to eat meals on June 13, 2020. Since then two additional meal distributions providing more than 3600 meals to 600 families.
 
Our costs average $3.75 per meal and we welcome any donation. Our foundation is a 501(3) c organization. All donations will be used to provide meals to those in most need, single parent families, unemployed and underemployed and seniors.  
 
The students at Cottonwood Elementary School are on home bound instruction due to the COVID Pandemic. Many of the students live in remote areas without internet service.  The club donated $1200 for the school to purchase additional hot spots for these students. This not only helps the elementary students, but their siblings in older grades who are also receiving home bound instruction.
The CG Rotary club in partnership with APS, Walmart, Fitzgibbon's Law Offices, Western State Bank, District 5500 Foundation Grandts and various club members provided meals for 800 families since June 13, 2020. Each family received a box of prepared food including enchiladas, rice, beans, salsa, and chips for a family of 6 people. The food was prepared by Fernando Cornejo and his staff at Eva's Fine Mexican Restaurant. The preparation is completed the evening prior to the event and Rotary members packaged and distributed to the residents who came.  It was obvious to all of us that most everyone who received a food box needed our assistance.
The CG Rotary club was grateful that we were able to provide this service to our community.
We plan a second event in the coming weeks. Anyone interested in making a donation to assist our efforts can send a check to the CG Rotary Club, PO Box 11301, Casa Grande AZ 85130.
 
Rotarian's and their spouses or family members assisted in the distribution. Thank you to Steve and Carolann D, Brian and Shelly G, Louie and Carrie S, Matt H, Randy and Anita L, Nick D. Don K, Ed V and his family, Fernando C, Dave and Elly R, and the staff and management of Eva's Mexican Restaurant. 
 
IN cooperation with the CG Daybreak Rotary, the CG Rotary club contributed to and attended the installation of the Rotary Peace Pole at Peart Park.  This was a cooperative venture with our sister club, and the installation ceremony was attended by approximately 50 residents and members.
