Dove Mountain Rotary Says Goodbye to Mary Ann Tatum

 
Dove Mountain Rotarians said their goodbyes to Charter Member Mary Ann Tatum at a celebration of life at The Highlands on July 20. The event was organized by Mary Ann's daughter, Michelle Barry. Michelle's husband, Philip Barry, read excerpts from Mary Ann's favorite poem, The Vagabond, by Robert Louis Stevenson. Mary Ann and her late husband, Howard, loved to travel, and the poem is about having an unplanned, adventurous life by traveling one road after another. Many of those who attended the event shared memories of Mary Ann, including Mary Feldsien, a friend since childhood. Rotarians wishing to make a gift in Mary Ann's memory may donate to the Howard and Mary Ann Tatum Scholarship Fund. Instructions for donating are on this homepage.

Club Members Have Off-Site Tours

 
Dove Mountain Rotarians had 2 off-site tours in July. The first was at La Sonora, a new assisted living and memory care facility in Marana. The first residents had moved in only 3 weeks before the tour, so there was not a lot of activity. The building and rooms were designed with careful attention to the needs of those who will occupy the facility, and all rooms have beautiful mountain views. More information, photos, and prices are available online. Even though the facility is new, major upgrades are already in the planning stage, as the management company wants the facility to have a "wow" factor.
 
The second tour was of Modern Studios, a little-known film production site near the Pavilions shopping area. General Manager Eric Larsen showed the club members the editing rooms, green room and production studios. He was proud that the studio hosted Oprah Winfrey just before the lockdown. She was doing a promotion for a film version of American Dirt, an Oprah's Book Club selection in 2020. The studio has state-of-the-art equipment and was set to do a number of projects when the COVID cases surged in Arizona causing cancellations.
