Thank you to all the Pflugerville Rotarians who attended the 2015 District 5870 Foundation Dinner on Feb. 7th.  It was an invigorating evening full of old friends and new ones!
 

 
Wonderful turnout for our February 7th Adopt-A-Trail at Pfluger Park.  Thank you to the City for the trash bags and to the many Rotarians (and Pfuture Rotarians) and their families, as well as our honored guests The American Legion.  Great prizes for Highest Count, Largest item, and Most Unusual Item.  Thank you all for what you do at home and abroad!
 

 
 
What does the best Rotary Club do after a long few months of Golf Tournament Planning?  Why, make 20 gallons of chili, of course!
 
Special thanks to Rob House and Kenneth Kidd, as well as all who made chili, volunteered at the booth, and generally had a grand time!  Pflugerville Rotarians were also involved in our big, little town's Chili Pfest as organizers, Volunteers, and even Celebrity Judges!  Rotary continues to "do good" in our Community.  Although Chili Pfest isn't a Pfundraiser, it is important for us to be out in the Community showing all just how much Pfun being a Pflugerville Rotarian is.  Good job All!
 

 
 
Our 14th Annual Golf Tournament was a success because of you!  Yes YOU.  Every Rotarian who was there.  Friends of Rotarians volunteering.  Players. Sponsors.  Steve Gore for Photography.  We can't do it without each and every one of you.  Thank you for helping us raise more than $30,000 to go towards our Scholarships and other charities.  It really is a blessing to spend a day in the sun with so many Pfriends for a good cause.  Numbers and album coming soon!
 

 
 
Upcoming International Speaker scheduled for September 17th at the noon meeting.  Earl Follis of the Round Rock Sunrise Rotary Club has brought us the opportunity to host James Manyror, one of the Lost Boys of Sudan (who've been profiled several times on 60 Minutes, New York Times, and a few films).  We will be extending an invitation to all local media as well. James moved from Sudan to Denver in the '90s before returning to Sudan in 2005 to start an orphanage for other lost boys. He is flying in from Denver to speak to a select few clubs in the area.  All members and friends of Rotary are invited.  Special thanks to Earl for thinking of Pflugerville!  Here is his non-profit's website with more info: http://www.saoro06.org/ and here is background info on the Lost Boys of Sudan: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lost_Boys_of_Sudan .
 

 
 

August 2014 Adopt-A-Trail
 
 
 
Another great year for our Deutschen Pfest fundraising!  We matched last year; and refilled the Scholarship funds for our 2015 PISD Seniors.  We had some wonderful help from our Interact volunteers and Pfriends of Rotary.  With all hands on deck, we put the Pfun in Fundraising!
 

 
 
The Rotary Club of Pflugerville was privileged to present $31,500 of higher education scholarships to 14 PISD Seniors.  This was a great increase from $23,000 to 13 Seniors last year.  Congratulations to all of the recipients!
 

 
 
 
Welcome to Terry Hatcher!  We are so happy to have you in our Pfamily.

Four Way Test

Of the things we think, say, and do...
1. Is it the truth?
2. Is it fair to all concerned?
3. Will it build goodwill and better friendships?
4. Will it be beneficial to all concerned?
