ASF Scholarship Awards
 There will be a sign-up sheet next Monday, Feb 3, at our luncheon to be a scholarship presenter at the Arnold Sports Festival.  You may even get to  meet and get a photo with Arnold Schwarzenegger, like Bill Harris did in 2019.  Let alone being able to shine a light on a great, young athlete!
 The scholarship presentations will take place at various times Friday, March 6 through Sunday, March 8 and there will be a total of 11 opportunities of which individuals will be assigned. 
Call for scholarship applicants
Rotarian - 
We would like your help getting the word out to potential Phoenix Scholarship Candidates.  Phoenix scholars are returning students, who have faced some challenges and could use a scholarship to an accredited college or program. They need to be local students.   Where would you find a Phoenix? In your place of worship, your work, or other organizations where you volunteer.
How can you help?

More travelers.  More pictures.

Greetings from our hotel on the shore of Lake Titicaca (ele.12,500ft.).  The other pic is me with Hermosina, a Bolivian potato farmer, we met hiking on the Inca Trail near Machu Picchu. Rotary is visible in most cities we have driven through, but our schedule has kept us moving, so I haven’t yet visited a local club meeting
