Club News

 
I nearly forgot to mention something until I was reminded at my Rotary Club meeting....Remember, just a few weeks remain to get one of the limited remaining sponsorships to build your business and the greater Katy area.  I hope to hear from you and see you there.
 
 
 
 
I represent the Rotary Club of Katy for our fourth annual Wild West Brewfest, the only craft beer dedicated event in Katy.  ... I would like to have the opportunity to discuss this event with you and how your sponsorship can benefit you, the community, and the noble undertakings of our non-profit service club.
 
 
 
 
The Wild West Brewfest (WWBF) is a Katy, Texas area community event conducted once a year and produced by the Katy Rotary Club.  Over 90 craft brewers from across the United States come to enter the Craft Beer competition and to serve event attendees with over 250 taps (in 2.5 oz mugs).  This is a Brewers Association of America sanctioned competition.  Local restaurants will serve an abundance of free food.

With over 4,000 people on the grounds of the Villagio Town Center on May 10th, your impact was quite substantial.  We appreciate your commitment and capital and we understand your trust that we will deploy the funds in the proper manner to impact many people.

Books donated in the name of our weekly guest speakers by the Club were presented to the Activities Director and several Brookwood residents for their Community Library.  Using our annual Valentine Luncheon as the backdrop, members were present to greet the residents and watch their happy acceptance of the new additions to their Library.  On the way into lunch the wrapped gift books were spotted by one of the residents who was serving in the Cafe today.  He gleefully said as he pointed to the stack, "Oh wonderful, my favorite, Scholarship Books!  I love them and read those all the time."Image

 

 
 

On July 25, 2013 The Rotary Club of Katy hosted a luncheon honoring their 2013 scholarship recipients.  There were 15 scholarships awarded in the amount of $1500 each for this group of outstanding Katy ISD seniors.  We had over 150 applications for these scholarships among all Katy ISD high schools.

The proceeds used to fund these scholarships comes primarily from the Katy Triathlon at Firethorne and the Children's Film Festival that are both hosted annually in the late summer and early fall by the Rotary Club of Katy for the benefit of the Katy Rotary Fund.

Rotary member takes fundraising to new heights -- the summit of Mount Everest
Despite his longstanding interest in polio eradication, polio was not on Joe Pratt's mind as he prepared for a mid-April 2012 climb of Mount Everest, the highest mountain on earth. But that changed in late 2011, when the resident of Nottingham, New Hampshire, USA, participated in a polio immunization project in Pakistan with fellow Rotary member Steve Puderbaugh. Moved by the efforts of the Pakistanis to battle the crippling disease, and by the vulnerability of the young victims, Pratt reset the focus of his climbing adventure. Pakistan is one of three countries where polio has never been...
San Francisco club reveals formula for growth and retention of members
Members of the Rotary Club of San Francisco Evening meet at a wine bar after work, share a social outing, and promote all their activities on social media like Meetup and Facebook. As the first evening club in the city, it has attracted many young professionals from Silicon Valley tech firms whose work schedules keep them from joining a more traditional club that meets for breakfast or lunch. But more than that, the evening format has helped the club grow by 30 percent since it received its charter in mid-2013. Danielle Lallement, who was its charter president, says the club has been...
Colorado joins Kosovo club to restore sanitation in blighted local schools
Blighted schools in the mountain city of Peja in western Kosovo are a reminder of the ethnic strife and war that ravaged this area in the 1990s. To restore ruined sanitation facilities in some of those schools, local Rotary members recently partnered with their counterparts from Colorado, USA. Though residents have been slowly rebuilding the city's infrastructure after years of neglect under earlier governments, most resources are going to improve roads, rebuild homes, and create new businesses. Little money remains to restore the schools. As a result, students have fallen ill, stayed home...
Rotary releases $34.8 million for polio immunization activities worldwide
Rotary International released an additional $34.8 million in grants to support polio immunization activities in 10 countries, including Afghanistan, Nigeria, and Pakistan, the three countries where the disease has never been stopped. The funds, whose release was announced 20 January, will be used by the World Health Organization and UNICEF for polio immunization and surveillance activities in the 10 countries, as well as to provide technical assistance in several other countries in Africa. The grants include $8.1 million for Nigeria to support its final push to eradicate the disease. Nigeria...
President-elect urges Rotary members to ‘Be a Gift to the World’
Using their talents, expertise, and leadership, Rotary members worldwide are asked to be gifts to the world this upcoming 2015-16 Rotary year. Rotary International President-elect K.R. "Ravi" Ravindran called Sunday's address to incoming district governors the "most significant moment of my life." "All of you have been given so many gifts. And you have now been given this great gift: one year to take all your talents, all your gifts, everything that you are and can become -- and Be a Gift to the World," said Ravindran, revealing his presidential theme at the annual five-day training meeting...
