Officer Dan Hullings

Maureen Alger

The Sun Lakes Rotary has a variety of interesting meetings each week!

On March 3, we will have a presentation by Officer Dan Hullings, 19-year veteran of the Chandler Police Department. He is a K-9 officer and will talk about the program and bring his four-year-old Belgian Malinois Benzo. Benzo is a dual-purpose police canine who serves with patrol functions and narcotics detection.

On March 10, there will be a presentation by Project Healing Waters. Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing, Inc. (PHWFF) began in 2005 serving wounded military service members at Walter Reed Army Medical Center after their return from combat in Iraq and Afghanistan. Since then, PHWFF has expanded nationwide, establishing its highly-successful program in Department of Defense hospitals, Warrior Transition Units, and Veterans Affairs Medical Centers and clinics. Project Healing Waters brings a high-quality, full-spectrum fly fishing program to an ever-expanding number of disabled active military service personnel across the Veterans Affairs Healthcare System, in military hospitals and the Warrior Transition Command. PHWFF has become recognized as an innovative leader and model in the field of therapeutic outdoor recreation for the disabled, through its successful application of the sport of fly fishing as a rehabilitation tool.

On the morning of March 17, Dr. Rob Romanin, DDS, will be our speaker. Dr. Romanin has been serving the Sun Lakes community for many years and is an active member of the Sun Lakes Rotary. His presentation will drill down into the world of dentistry.

Chandler Mayor Kevin Hartke will speak on the morning of March 31. Mayor Kevin Hartke began his term in January 2019. He previously served nine years on the city council, first as an interim council member in 2008, and then was elected to consecutive terms and served from January 2011 to January 2019. Kevin served as vice mayor twice, in 2015 and 2017.

During the month of March, there will be three Tuesday morning meetings on the 3rd, 17th, and 31st and two Tuesday evening meetings on the 10th and 24th. The meetings are held in the Sun Lakes Oakwood Country Club ballroom. Morning meetings are from 6:30 to 8 a.m.; the evening meetings are from 5:30 to 7 p.m.
