R otary International is a volunteer organization with 33,000 clubs in over 200 countries and geographical areas. It initiates humanitarian projects that address today’s challenges affecting the world today, such as hunger, poverty, and illiteracy. Rotary club members represent a cross-section of business and professional leaders around the world. These 1.2 million men and women donate their expertise, time, and funds to support local and international projects that help people in need and promote understanding among cultures. Rotary International is the worldwide association of Rotary clubs united under a motto of Service Above Self.

Rotary’s flagship program is its effort to protect children against polio. It aims to eradicate the disease from the world. We are "this close" to succeeding

 
 

Support Rotary by displaying Texas Rotary Service Above Self license plates on your vehicle! The specialty plate fee is $30 or $40, depending on the plate, in addition to the regular registration fee and any other applicable fees.
Twenty-two dollars ($22) of the plate fee goes to the Texas Department of State Health Services to help fund Tuberculosis (TB) prevention and for improving the delivery of TB prevention and control services.

 
Tuberculosis is a major public health problem in Texas. In 2009, a total of 1,501 TB cases were reported to the Texas Department of State Health Services. The Texas-Mexico border region is significantly affected by TB. The frequent crossing of citizens from both Texas and Mexico to visit family, to shop, and to work opens the door for the cross-border transmission of TB.
This is a very painless way to both promote Rotary in our community and to assist in the fight against TB.
You can order a set of plates on-line from the Texas Department of Motor Vehicles (TxDMV) Vehicle Title and Registration Services website.

 
 
Our club meetings were a tight squeeze at IHOP, and as our club continues to grow, we wanted to have a larger space to fellowship. Starting September 15, 2011 we will meet at 7 am at St. Paul Hasang Catholic Church's OLD Parish Hall. The Old Parish Hall is the one just across 2410 from Harker Heights High School, next to the church proper. The newer Parish Hall is the big building that is removed a bit away from the church and has its own big new parking lot that you enter from FM 3481 (Stillhouse Lake Road.) It is our hope to one day be such a big club that we use THAT Parish Hall, but for the time being, we will give the Old Parish Hall a whirl.

Bringing education to rural Mexican area, one school at a time
When Mariana Day moved in 1989 to the small beach town of Chacala, in Nayarit, Mexico, she noticed that the surrounding rural areas struggled to maintain schools. And most children weren’t able to go beyond an eighth-grade education. Day, who is a member of the Rotary Club of Bahía de Jaltemba-La Peñita, in Nayarit, had started a local scholarship program before she joined Rotary. Called Changing Lives, the program provided students with high school tuition, uniforms, school supplies, and transportation. In addition, Rotary clubs from the United States and Mexico have been investing in the...
Member spotlight: Peak performer scales Kilimanjaro
From the September 2015 issue of The Rotarian When Carole Kimutai was growing up in Nairobi, family members were always coming for long stays – a grandparent one month, a cousin the next. "Anyone who needed school fees would come to Nairobi, and my parents would assist," she says. "Or if my grandmother was sick, she would come to live with us until she was better. It was natural to help others." Years later, Kimutai was invited to a meeting of the Rotary Club of Nairobi-East, where she instantly felt at home. "I grew up seeing my parents help relatives, and now I am seeing people help quote-...
Convention: Hear the music
From the September 2015 issue of The Rotarian Chances are, you’ve heard of Psy and his signature song, “Gangnam Style.” He’s the Korean pop star with dark sunglasses and a distinctive galloping horse dance who was everywhere a few years ago, including on a This Close ad for End Polio Now. But what you might not know is that Psy is merely the tip of the colossal iceberg known as K-pop, short for Korean pop. If you plan to attend the 2016 Rotary International Convention in Seoul from 28 May to 1 June, you won’t have to search for K-pop – you’ll hear it in the streets, in cafes, in taxis, and on...
Member interview: Jay Cook helps young people through Rotary Youth Exchange
From the September 2015 issue of The Rotarian A Rotarian for nearly three decades, Jay Cook has helped hundreds of young people broaden their horizons through Rotary Youth Exchange. Recently, while working for the nonprofit Water Missions International, he’s turned his attention to bringing safe water and sanitation solutions to developing countries and disaster-stricken areas. Cook is a member of the Rotary Club of Charleston Breakfast and the Water and Sanitation Rotarian Action Group. THE ROTARIAN: How did you become involved with Rotary Youth Exchange? COOK: My club was hosting a young...
Technology: To please in a pod(cast)
From the September 2015 issue of The Rotarian When I was a college student in Wisconsin in the 1970s, those of us who worked at the 10-watt radio station hoped our signal would reach not only the 1,500 students on the Beloit College campus and the 35,000 residents of the town of Beloit but also the people in the cars and trucks passing by on the interstate 3 miles to the east – and possibly, late at night, the 150,000 who lived in the bustling metropolis of Rockford, Ill., 20 miles to the south. Some of us hoped to get jobs in radio after we graduated, and there was even talk about starting...
