Dear Rotary friends:
The GSE Team from D9980 on the South Island of New Zealand left for home via Houston Intercontinental, and llanded successfully in New Zealand.
I thought you'd enjoy reading the blog that they created during their stay here, so here's a link (once there search for "D9980 to S.E. Texas"):
Our team landed in New Zealand on the same flight.  
Through the wonders of the internet, please share the experiences of our GSE Team in New Zealand. The name of their group Facebook page (which you can join with a click), is GSE TX to NZ 2015. The only way I've been able to access it is to log in to Facebook and then search using those characters. If you can get to it without joining Facebook, please let the rest of us know.
To figure out the time of day and day of the week there, just subtract 7 hours from our local time and add one day. 
Feel free to send  them "likes" and comments. They'll be happy to know someone is watching and enjoying.

Thank you, Rotary, for blessing these fine Americans with this experience, and the host District 9980 with the joy of sharing with them.

GSE Chair

The Spotlight is Out!

The theatre is now dark in Beaumont as the 2015 District Conference is now a wonderful memory.  Thank you to all who engaged in the celebration and festivities.  The Rotary Club of Beaumont was delighted to have you participate and to share the spotlight with every amazing club and Rotarian in the District.  

We had fun!  We made memories!


We are so fortunate that PDG Hugh Summers is passionate about photography, and about recording and archiving events of the District in pictures and film.  It is through his eye and talents that we are able to re-live special moments.  And it is phenomenal that he is able to take so many still photo and do video recordings at the same time!  His multi-disc collection will be uploaded as we are able so you will want to check the website often for updates.   


The Conference Committee also had a cadre of professional photographers on hand under the direction of Karen Bourdier, working diligently through every aspect of the weekend to capture the memories. They are being uploaded and posted also.   Many are also posted on the Facebook page.  Feel free to download what you would like in your personal collection.  Thanks to all those who shared their special talent in this way.

The breakout sessions during the Conference were coordinated by Bobbie Applegate and facilitated by three members of the Rotary Club of Beaumont: Judy Kelfstrom, Craig Escamilla and Craig Lively.   Each one had lively discussion and generated some great thoughts.  The comments and ideas were recorded and can be read thoroughly by linking to them here.

     In the 1920's, the Hull-Daisetta area was a booming oil field. Once the Rotary Club was established there, they realized there was not only a shortage of residents, but they did not have a place to meet.  As enterprising Rotarians, they built a small structure in which to hold their meetings. It was a six-sided building, with a peaked roof, a brick fireplace, and a lean-to on the outside that acted as the kitchen. The location served them well for a number of years, but as the oil business dried up, so did the Rotary Club there.

Tom Plumb of The Port Isabel, Texas Rotary Club spent over 4 years
pursuing the creation of a Texas Rotary International license plate. 
They are now a reality. The specialty license plate fee is collected in addition to
the regular registration fee and any other applicable fees. 
From the $30 specialty plate fee, $22 goes to the Texas Department of State

the delivery of TB prevention and control services.
This plate is available for Passenger,Truck, Motorcycle, Trailer/Travel Trailer, and
