Rotary Club of Marana – Dove Mountain Banner
 
Our club is located in the Dove Mountain area of Marana, Arizona.  We are in the southern portion of the state, northwest of Tucson.  The area is famous for beautiful skies and mountain views, endless hiking trails, and many golf courses.
 
The club banner was designed by Alexis Gibson, a student at the Marana Unified School District’s Mountain View High School.  Alexis submitted the winning entry in a contest sponsored by our club.
 
The banner highlights our namesake dove and depicts the Dove Mountain setting.  The Tortolita Mountain range is in the background with a giant saguaro cactus as a prominent feature.  The saguaro is only found in the Sonoran Desert of southern Arizona and its blossom is the state flower.  The rock outcrop at the base of the cactus represents the state’s mineral deposits that contain gem stones as well as silver and copper ore. 
 
When describing her design, Alexis said that she chose the desert color pallet because it is the view that she enjoyed from her home patio each evening.
