Unfortunately, we must report that long time Space Center Rotarian Chuck Jacobson has passed away.  The Memorial Service was held at St. Mary's in League City on Tuesday, October 27, 2015 at 11:00 a.m.  Please keep Chuck's family and friends in our prayers.

WOW!!  Great Shrimporee this past Saturday, despite the rain.  Many thanks to Darryl, Gary and all the others who planned for months to make this a huge success.
No rain is going to spoil the sunshine this club can shed.  Check out the pictures that Carl took at Shrimporee at the link below.

With such sadness, I must report that a very brave Marine, Hector Marin, has lost a long battle, but our Lord has taken Hector off the battle field on his shield to a permanent home in heaven.  Memorial Services were held in Florida this week for Hector Marin.  It was a private service for family and close friends.  Space Center Rotary sent a card and made a $100.00 dollar donation to Rotary Foundation in honor of our fellow Space Center Rotarian, Hector Marin.  Please continue to keep this family in your prayers.

The memorial service for Dennis Dillon, long time Space Center Rotarian, is scheduled for Tuesday, September 15th at 10:30 a.m. in the Nassau Bay Baptist Church Sanctuary at 18131 Nassau Bay Drive, 77058.   Please pray for his son Bob and wife Kirsten during this time of loss.

Joni DeGuzman was very touched by our Random Act of Kindness today.  They have not been able to be in their house for the past 7 weeks after the storm.  And, she is not sure when it will be ready!  When you think you have a big problem, think of this family.
Thank you CCISD for bringing one of your student's families to us for help.  CCISD is much more than just a school district.  They are a family who cares and helps one another.
Thank you for all you have done this past year and Go And Do Likewise.

Please see the below press release about our Interact club at Clear Lake High School.  I can not begin to tell you what a wonderful job Kim Scofield and Michael Porterfield are doing with our Interact clubs.  Read this and join me in being so proud of the work these students have occomplished.  It has been a pleasure to see the work side by side with our club and also take inititive to do projects on their own.
Also, when you see Kim, bow down and thank her for the many hours she has spent to help this club achieve greatness.  They have truely Gone and Done Likewise!!!
Peace and Happy Easter to all.

Rotarian Jerrald Dewease has created a wonderful review of our Space Center Rotary Club's 50th Anniversary.  Our celebration took place at Space Center Houston on August 6 2014, the date of our original charter.  Please click on 50TH ANNIVERSARY RECAP to review the events of our celebration.



Space Center Rotary's EarlyAct FirstKnight program has been a tremendous success.  Teaching chivalry and building champions -- that's what the program is accomplishing at Whitcomb Elementary School.  The program teaches children how to be role models and hold high standards for character. You haven't experienced Rotary, until you hear 700 young students recite Rotary's 4-Way Test "every morning".  Organizers hope the examples will rub off on other kids.  It was the last day of school for students at Clear Creek ISD, and some of them went home with proud parents and new titles for the summer.  Click on Houston's ABC Channel 13 News Reports
Space Center Rotary Club has a small group of golf enthusiasts who want more members!  We golf almost every Thursday (depending on weather and interest) at local public courses.  All the courses offer a reduced rate for seniors – if you fit in that category.  Non-senior rates are very reasonable.   Tee times are usually early in the morning.
