Club History
The Rotary Club of Goodyear PebbleCreek received their official Charter from Rotary International at the special Charter Celebration & Dinner on November 2, 2017, inducting 22 members in the Chianti Room of the Tuscany Falls Clubhouse.   Rotary District Governor Nancy Van Pelt presented the Charter to Joan Smith, the new Club President.
 
The Charter Night Celebration included a wonderful dinner and an inspirational talk by Craig Wilson, Past District Governor and member of the Phoenix 100 Club, was a highlight of the program.
 
In addition to the District Governor, Nancy Van Pelt, and the 22 Charter Members of the new Rotary Club, several distinguished guests were present including Rotary International Past President, Ray Klinginsmith; past district governors and local club representatives from across Arizona gathered to support and applaud the first club in District 5495 and the newest club in Arizona
 
We are proud and excited to have the spirit of Rotary thriving again in the Goodyear PebbleCreek community,” said John Spooler, long-time Rotarian and PebbleCreek resident who inspired and was the organizational lead in the formation of the club.  “Over a decade ago, a local club which met at PebbleCreek moved and I have been committed to re-building a Rotary presence in the PebbleCreek community.” At the ceremony Spooler was also recognized as a Paul Harris Society member for his generous contributions to the Rotary International Foundation.
 
Concluding the charter ceremony, Smith underscored that Rotary is simply a mix of neighbors, community leaders and global citizens uniting for the common good.
 
 
Club News
The installation of new officers for the Rotary Club of Goodyear PebbleCreek took place on April 24. The dinner was hosted by out-going club president Joan. She reviewed the club's progress and achievements for the last 18 months. Major milestones recognized included membership growth of 30 members and over $35,000 donated to charitable organizations in the greater Goodyear community., including Agua Fria Food & Clothing Bank, SW Family Advocacy Center, Mutts on a Mission, SW Lending Closet, Hope Community Services and four high school scholarships. The club has also planted trees at the Goodyear Community Park, collected 2800 pounds of canned food for the food bank, delivered food and book boxes during the holidays, rang bells for the Salvation Army and participate in monthly road clean-up.
 
The highlight of the evening was the recognition of John Spooler as Rotarian of the Year. "John has been a dedicated Rotarian for over 20 years and he was the inspiration and driving force to organize our Goodyear PebbleCreek Club", said Smith. "His spirit of service and charitable giving really reflects the heart and soul of our club."  Spooler, in addition to his long tenure of Rotary Club volunteer work, is also recognized as a multiple Paul Harris Fellow for generous financial giving to Rotary International. "John is the epitome of Rotary's ethic of service above self and we are fortunate to benefit from his decades of Rotary experienced," noted Smith
John Spooler is an strong advocate for The Rotary Foundation. Being the charitable arm of Rotary, it helps clubs and districts work together to perform meaningful, sustainable service such as clean water, medical care, literacy classes and other essentials. Rotary leads the charge in ending polio and promoting peace.  91% of each dollar donated goes directly to Rotary projects around the world!   
 
John honored two club members with Paul Harris Fellow awards because he believes these two individuals have shown leadership and service above self. John recognized Sheryl Driscoll for all her hard work and participation in the community. John's quote was, "Everything that Sheryl works on turns to gold!" "She is very deserving of this Paul Harris Fellow." Joe Miles was the second Rotarian recognized by John. "Joe helps with the set-up and take down of the room each week, says the invocation and believes that you get the most out of Rotary by getting involved in club projects and activities. Joe is a great person to have on our team", John says. 
 
Thank you John, for your continued work of encouraging and helping all our members to become Paul Harris Fellows!
 
Great Rotary meeting today with DG Jim Erickson as our speaker. Excellent program focusing on the need to finish the fight to eradicate Polio worldwide!
