On Thursday, Oct. 3, the Rotary Club of SaddleBrooke will proudly present Chief Counsel Rebecca Masterson speaking on GenJustice and legal support for children at the SaddleBrooke One Clubhouse. Rebecca was recently honored, along with other outstanding Arizona women, for her pioneering work by the Women Achievers of Arizona, sponsored by the Arizona Capitol Times. Abused children in Arizona have “Becca” as their lifeline as well as 911!

More than 35,000 Arizona’s of children and kids across the country are benefiting from this work. Generation Justice or “GenJustice” includes expedited searches for relatives, faster and safer placements of infants with family, improved access to special education in classrooms, and a shorter time to adoption for teens. Becca also works with court appointed special advocates, guardians ad litem, social workers, kinship and foster families to offer training on the rights of children in care.Members of the community are welcome to attend our programs.

Visitors are welcome to join us for lunch before the program, and we begin ordering lunches around 11:15 a.m. There are three menu options ranging from $7.50 to $12.50 or less. After a short meeting, our programs usually begin at approximately 12:20 p.m.

The Rotary Club of SaddleBrooke is not only an award-winning organization devoted to making a difference locally and globally, but it is also a club that enjoys coming together for life-long learning. We meet weekly for lunch with friends and have an excellent program of learning. If this sounds like something of interest to you, come visit our friendly club, and learn more about Rotary.

If this sounds like something of interest to you, come join us for lunch on any Thursday at 11:30 a.m. at the SaddleBrooke One Clubhouse and meet our members.
