Who We Are & What We Do

Rotary International is the world's first service club organRIhomepageization, with more than 1.2 million members in 33,000 clubs worldwide. Rotary club members are volunteers who work locally, regionally, and internationally to combat hunger, improve health and sanitation, provide education and job training, promote peace, and eradicate polio under the motto Service Above Self. Deer Park Rotary sponsors many efforts in the Deer Park area to enhance the quality of life in our community. Each year, our club awards several scholarships to deserving Deer Park students and makes a difference by giving to many area non profit organizations.

 

 

Making a Difference In Our Community

Rotarians motto is "Service Above Self." Living this motto was apparent in a recent service project, where Rotarians, spouses and children worked at Dow Park to update several areas. New netting was place on the tennis court fences and mulch was spread in several areas to be enjoyed by citizens all summer long.  Other service projects include working on Habitat for Humanity, Ella and Friends Dog Park, Living Water International, school beautification projects, walking tracks in city parks and many other community projects.
 
 
 

 
 

The Deer Park Rotary Club awarded 13 students a total of $12,000 in scholarships at its weekly luncheon on Wednesday.  Deer Park High School Interact Club students Justin Martin, Kyle Young and Logan Campbell were awarded $500 each.  The club also awarded $500 scholastic scholarships to Ali Dupin, Mariah Mills, Bethany Cole, Timothy George and Alyssa Rodriguez.  The $500 Chris Williams Memorial Scholarship was awarded to Kelsey Lindsey. Two more memorial scholarships – The Dorris Memorial Awards were presented to Shelby Mitchell and Yekaterina Malyavina. The Dorris awards are $750 each.  The Deer Park Rotary Club also presented scholarships to two San Jacinto College students.  The $1,000 Rotary San Jacinto College Award went to Sky Davis while the $5,000 Associates Degree Scholarship went to Denise Ochoa.  "We're so proud of these students. None of them will disappoint you. They have done great things and they have great futures ahead of them," said Dr. Ronda Kouba, a Rotarian and principal at Deer Park High School.

Stories about Rotary
Global movement needed to reverse water crisis
This year's World Water Summit on 27 May in Seoul highlighted the progress being made: Over the last 25 years, more than 2.5 billion people gained access to improved drinking water, and 2 billion who didn't have adequate sanitation now do. Child deaths from water-related diseases dropped from 1.5 million to just over 600,000. The UN Millennium Development Goals' target for clean drinking water was met five years ahead of schedule. But for the 1.8 billion people whose drinking water remains contaminated and the 2.4 billion without access to proper sanitation, progress is still too slow, said...

Rotary districts mobilize to support survivors of Ecuador, Japan quakes
After a series of three earthquakes -- two in Japan and one in Ecuador -- killed hundreds of people, injured thousands, and caused billions of dollars in damage late last week, Rotary members in those regions have created disaster relief funds to help survivors. In Ecuador, the powerful 7.8-magnitude quake that struck Saturday night has killed more than 400 people, with 2,500 injured. Those figures are expected to rise. Rotary District 4400 established a service fund to raise money for relief efforts. Contact District Governor Manuel A. Nieto Jijon for information on how to donate. In Japan,...

Get live updates and vote totals from the Council on Legislation on Rotary.org beginning on 11 April. Representatives from Rotary clubs worldwide will gather in Chicago 10-15 April to consider changes to the policies that guide Rotary International and its member clubs.  Many of this year’s proposed changes are designed to increase membership by giving clubs greater flexibility in the timing and the nature of their meetings. Other proposals would amend membership requirements.
UNESCO-IHE scholarship applications now available
The Rotary Foundation and UNESCO-IHE Institute for Water Education are offering up to 10 scholarships for graduate study at UNESCO-IHE's Delft campus in the Netherlands.

The scholarships also are designed to promote long-term relationships between Rotary members and skilled water and sanitation professionals. Scholars will receive a Master of Science degree in urban water and sanitation, water management, or water science and engineering. The...
Ensure recognition for your Interact clubs
Interact clubs are making a positive difference in schools and communities around the world. Leaders of sponsor Rotary clubs and districts should make sure their Interact clubs get the recognition they deserve by verifying that they qualify for a Presidential Citation.

If a sponsored club is not listed, submit the Interact Club Certification Form by 1 March. Then, verify by 15 April that your Interact clubs have qualified for the...

Live Auctions events enable buyers to participate in auctions across the United States -- held at such auction houses as Sotheby’s, Swann, and Freeman’s -- without leaving home. Under this proceeds-sharing...
