Club RI Representative Chris Ashcraft (and Executive Director at CPAC)
reported on the fight against polio.  If we don't completely eliminate it, it could
rebound to 10 million cases in the next 40 years.  The goal is achievable because
we have the tools and vaccines to reach all the kids.  As an investment, the $9
billion cost nets a $40 to $50 billion benefit in the next 20 years.  Our efforts
have strengthened the global disease control system, and the stage is set for our
next global health initiative.
  Secretary Michael Pease used mathematics to illustrate what thinking
outside the box might be.  3 people who report an object as being a
square, a circle, and a triangle might all be right, since a 3-dimensional
object can have all 3 silhouettes. He used probability trees to analyze a
conflict situation, then showed the best solution required a creative leap
beyond that analysis.   
Jennifer Pullen, a research economist at U of A's Economic and Business
Research Center, demonstrated the features of their MAP (Making Action
Possible) website, which aims to improve Southern Arizona through data driven
collective civic action and education.  Give it a look:

  Club Foundation VP Joyce Finkelstein presented 3 of our local high school
students with $1000 scholarships.  The Foundation awards scholarships to local
students, including home-schooled, every year.  The number given depends
very much on donations to the Foundation and the state of the economy.

SERVICE ABOVE SELF
John Kmiec, President of the Southern Arizona Water Users Association, gave
the Club a history of water use in our area, including the dropping water table in
the '80's, and a very optimistic description of what has been done in the last 2
decades to allieviate the problem.

our new Bacchanal fundraiser (along with Paul Loomans and Marvin
Hass), which brought in over $4000 for the Club's activiies.
