The Sportsman’s Club of Sun City West will host a general meeting 1 p.m. Monday, Jan. 21 in the social hall at R.H. Johnson Recreation Center, 19803 R.H. Johnson Blvd.

New membership is available at the next general meeting. This month’s speaker is Mr. Glen Vortherms, P.E. who is the Maricopa Water District general manager. His topic is the history of Lake Pleasant with attention to the Maricopa Water District and its important role in the West Valley of Phoenix.

The club offers Sun City West residents a multitude of outdoor Arizona activities, including big wheels (off road vehicles), easy riders, birding, fishing, GEOcaching, hiking, horseback riding, whitewater rafting, target and clay shooting, and travel (“Adventures with Marilynn”). Information about these activities is available at under “Activities.”

The Sportsman’s Club offers activities designed to make one feel more connected to Sun City West and to Arizona to learn about area history, geology, geography, flora and fauna. These activities are also a way to help maintain one’s body and brain health.
