The Desert Chapter of the Circumnavigators Club is holding its last meeting of the season at 1 p.m. on Sunday, April 8, at the Arizona Country Club.

Funds are raised through the Club’s Foundation to potentially send an Arizona State University undergraduate student on a competitive, vetted research project while doing a circumnavigation.

April’s featured speaker is Lisa E. White, president of Scottsdale Sister Cities. Cost for the luncheon is $35, and the deadline for reservations is Wednesday, March 28.
