Until our new president sends us his official "Presidential" photo,
this is the closest we could find!

Rotary Minute
 
Since the launch of the Global Polio Eradication Initiative (GPEI), the global incidence of polio cases has decreased by 99 percent. In March 2014 India, once deemed the most difficult place to end polio, was declared polio-free, making the entire Southeast Region polio-free. Now that 99 percent of the world’s population lives in regions certified polio-free, the goal of eradication is closer than ever.

Five things you may not know about . . .

John Boyce

Partner
Williams-Boyce 
Insurance Agency
Rotarian since 1951
Served as Club President
Perfect Attendance - 64 years
 
1) I have four sons (all Rotarians) John III, Beaumont, Peter and William.  My dog answers to the name Coco (most of the time).
2) My favorite reading genre is the newspaper and when I'm not reading it, working or going to Rotary I like golf.
3) My favorite sweet indulgence is COOKIES and my favorite thing about Rotary is seeing old friends and eating cookies.
4) My "hot button" is most remembered by my children.  They knew that at the dinner table they needed to keep their mouths shut until I had time to eat.  Of course that is there story.
5) Something most people do not know about me...I am an excellent gauge of Rotary Programs.  If I'm dozing, the program is not so hot.

Congratulations everyone!
 
 
Snak Pak
Rotarians Volunteer for Kids
 
Our Raise the bar fundraiser netted $18,000 which was presented to Caprock High School, September 17th, to begin their Snack Shak program. 
Snack Pak 4 kids received a $20,000 challenge grant from a foundation in Austin Texas. Caprock students needed to raise the matching $20,000. This timely fundraiser made it all come together for these students.  Snack Pak 4  kids plans to have Snack Shaks available in all AISD middle and high schools by the 2015 school year.
 
The story continues.  District 5730 Grant funds where distributed and the share allocated to the Rotary Club of Amarillo allowed us to support the launch of the Snack Shak program at Fannin Middle School.  A check for $5000.00 was presented on January 15th to the school principal Nathan Culwell.
