Hi to all my Rotarian friends and those who support Rotary. I have chose as my community giveback a coat and blanket drive. As it gets colder we have adults and children that don’t have coats or blankets to keep warm with. I’m asking you all to look thru your closets and get rid of those coats you haven’t worn in awhile. Blankets can be any size. Drop off locations are at Nevada Realty Roy Mankins or at the Nye County Assessors office. We will collect items until November 11th. Thank you in advance for all your help! Sheree

Thanks to all the Rotarians that donated candy and to Guy, Jan, Sherri, Diane, & Cheryl for dressing up for photo opportunities. Thanks to Cecilia, Dan, Eddie, Linda, Jeffrey, Ellen, Phyllis, and Barbara for helping to set up and pass candy to all the trick or treaters. It was a fun time had by all.

Pahrump Valley Rotarians, Guy and Jan Piersall gave a presentation on the Global Hope Network. They both grew up in Oregon and attended the University of Oregon. After college Guy entered the business world of finance and insurance. Jan became an elementary and middle school teacher. In January 2017, Guy and Jan joined GHNI as staff in Partner Development in the US. They work with existing and new donors to assist them in partnering with GHNI projects and staff around the world. Guy and Jan travel primarily in the western US and leading trips to visit overseas GHNI projects and spread the mission of GHNI. It was very interesting all the work that these dedicated Pahrump Rotarians do worldwide and how easy it is for Rotary to join in.GHNI is helping villages worldwide come out of poverty and become self sustaining. They are also fighting human trafficking and slavery. Besides Rotary they are interested in partnering with individuals, businesses, and churches.

tribute to ron frazier


President Eddie Williams holds a paver to be placed at the Rotary Memory site at the Calvada Eye in tribute for the community service provided by Long time humanitarian, philanthropist and Pahrump businessman Ron Frazier. Frazier co-founded the popular Pahrump Life magazine with his wife, Marion. He was involved in the Pahrump Chamber of Commerce and opened Frazier Furniture store on Calvada Boulevard in Pahrump in 1995 and was instrumental in bringing the Chili Cook Off To Pahrump. Ron Frazier passed away from complications related to COVID-19


President Ed has once again brought a top notch program to the Pahrump Valley Rotary Club. Thru his efforts the Rotary Club was treated to a tour of one those gems in the Pahrump Valley that may not be well known but provides an educational service not found in many locations. The Great Basin College was founded in 1967 and has established itself as a fully accredited college currently with over 3500 students specializing in many discipline but considers itself having a top of the line Nursing degree program.

Our tour began with Academic Advisor Amanda Sprayberry with her assistant Courtney Rohleder giving an overview of GBC and then a tour of the nursing facility and training classrooms. These included initial training room where students learn the basics in nursing, followed by virtual instruction via manikins controlled by professors to simulate actual nursing conditions in a hospital. We than visited the Biology lab and finally we were enlightenment by David Hernandez, Computer technician Specialist, demonstrating the latest technology of a  3D surgery table used to learn about all aspects of the human body and its surgery simulations. Our final stop was in the expansive computer area.

Thanks goes to Pres Ed and Great Basin College for making this tour available to the Pahrump Valley Rotary in a very short period of time. Enjoy the photos.
