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.

Intense summer program gives Israeli and Palestinian teens new perspectives
Students from Israel and Palestine sat together at a local art studio in Encinitas, California, USA, one day last summer, drawing portraits of one another and learning how to live in peace. Kelly Mellos, an organizer of the project from the Rotary Club of Encinitas Coastal, says that drawing someone who is sitting so close helps break down social barriers between the young people. "They see how many similarities there are between them," she says. "And they begin to understand we are all just people. There is a respect and trust that builds." The students were participating in a program run by...

Man in iron lung discovers Rotary
One might think a man living with polio in an iron lung would know about Rotary. But it wasn't until Paul Alexander had a business meeting with a member in Duncanville, Texas, earlier this year that he learned Rotary fights to eradicate the very disease that left him almost completely paralyzed. "I was completely blown away by the idea. For all these years, I didn't know the work they were doing," says Alexander, a practicing attorney in Dallas. "It's such a perfect fit for me." Alexander contracted polio during a major U.S. outbreak of the disease in the late 1950s when he was six years old...
Alumni recognized for expanding mental health services and supporting Rotary’s work
Dr. Geetha Jayaram has dedicated her life to helping people in her native India and the United States overcome the torment of severe depression, bipolar disorder, panic attacks, and other mental illnesses.

Her work expanding access to mental health services is much needed. Depression affects at least 350 million people and is the leading cause of disability worldwide, according to the World Health Organization. "In India, there is no mental...
