Rotary Club of Space Center 50th Anniversary Celebration
 
Since 1964, the Rotary Club of Space Center has been serving the Clear Lake area with dedicated community service and engaged volunteerism. On Wednesday, August 6 the club celebrated its 50th anniversary with a cocktail dinner and reception at Space Center Houston. To mark the occasion, Council Member Martin presented a certificate of recognition on behalf of the City of Houston honoring the club's service over the past half century. The event also featured memorabilia and video presentations celebrating the history of the chapter, and Rotarians and guests shared stories from the club's past activities.

 

Council Member Martin congratulates the Rotary Club of Space Center on the big milestone and thanks all involved with the organization over the past 50 years for their service to the community. He also thanks Scott Rainey, President of the Rotary Club of Space Center, for the invitation to attend the event.

 

 
 

Rotary National Award for Space Achievement (RNASA) Foundation announced a total donation of $29,466 to various programs during their annual RNASA Volunteer Appreciation Dinner held at Cullen's Upscale Grille.

Rotary National Award for Space Achievement Foundation President Rodolfo González said, “The RNASA Foundation is very grateful to our generous corporate sponsors who accomplish so much in our nation’s space programs.  It is very fitting that the proceeds yielded from the 2014 Space Gala be invested in programs that inspire our future engineers and leaders”.
