GRAND CANYON, Ariz. - On Saturday, stomp your feet and jingle those spurs with the Grand Canyon Rotary Club as they celebrate one of the club's biggest events of the year.

If you live in the Tusayan/Grand Canyon area, this is an event you won't want to miss. The Rotary Sunset Supper promises to be packed with good old-fashioned delights for all ages. Rotary organizer Clarinda Vail said she guarantees there will be something for everyone to enjoy.

From 4-9 p.m., there are games for kids, great food, square dancing for all generations, great music by local famed musicians, and a cowboy poet that you won't want to miss.

"Tony Norris and Paul Karlsburger are going to be playing," Vail said. "With Exit 64 backing them up."

When all the bidding and dancing gives you an appetite, $10 steak dinners or $5 burger dinners will also be on offer, with vegetarian options to boot. Beer, wine and soda will also be available.

Proceeds from this event will help to create a school/community park for the families of Tusayan. Over the past year, the Grand Canyon Unified School District and the Town of Tusayan have partnered with the Rotary Club to create a school-community play area.

"We are doing square dancing and music, and a horseshoe contest at 5:30 p.m.," Vail said.

The Rotary Club had not planned to do both an auction and a raffle, but due to the massive influx of donations, they are happy to announce otherwise.

"We have overnight stays in Sedona and Phoenix for the silent auction, dinners, we are really working on getting a houseboat trip locked down," Vail said. "For raffle items we have giftcards, tickets to Harkins Cinemas, awesome prizes like that."

Rotary community grants will be announced at the event.

The Sunset Supper will be held at Moqui cookout site, which is just north of Tusayan off Highway 64. Turn on Moqui drive, follow the signs and you can't miss it.

The Squire Inn, Xanterra, Red Feather Lodge, Canyon Plaza Resort and McDonalds are all contributors to this annual community event.

Tickets can be purchased from any Grand Canyon Rotary Club Rotarian or by calling the Grand Canyon School at (928) 638-2461, ext. 400.
