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.

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.

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.

CLHS Interact club has been notified that they will be awarded Rotary International's Presidential Award for their outstanding work for Rotary in the year 2014-2015.  CLHS Interact Club is a Service Organization following the Rotary Motto of "SERVE ABOVE SELF".
 
The Club ran projects to benefit: Rotary Polio Plus, Rotary Beads of Hope-Nicaragua, Rotary Global Water Project, and Rotary Disaster Relief worldwide.  They also provided service locally with a food and clothing drives for San Jacinto College and GoodWill organization, service at Space Center Rotary Annual Shrimporee and also service at Space Center Rotary Endowment Foundation Pancake Breakfast. Interactors began a new program this year called a RANDOM ACT OF KINDNESS, which occurred  monthly, alternating between Rotarians and CLHS Staff. A Holiday Hayride for all Interactors to celebrate a traditional holiday was in honor of Interact and Rotary Youth Exchange students, Adam from Poland and Chiarra from Italy.  Space Center Rotary gave Leadership scholarships to two of our Interactors to attend RYLA Camp and continues to support the Interact Club with annual Senior Scholarships.

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.
