Having fun at Rotary is one our top goals this year. I'd say we are hitting the mark!
 

 
Congratulations to Jessica Johnson as she received her permanent badge from Susie Smith.
 

 
Bryan D'Spain, of Broadway Bank Boerne, spoke to our club about the difference between the ages and how to relate to each. It was great to have such a comprehensive look at how to relate to those younger and older than ourselves.

We had a great Breakfast with Santa event this year at the Kendall Elementary School.

The kids were treated to breakfast, songs, face painting, cookie decorations and presents from Santa himself!

We had a great time serving our community and thank everyone who made this event possible for underprivileged children in our area.Image 

 

 
 

We had our first parade float in a very long time this year at the Boerne Christmas Parade. It was a fun evening and we got to wave and say hi to thousands of people. If you are interested in learning more about our club, click on any of the director's email addresses on the left hand side of this home page and send us an email. We would love to have you visit our club as our guest!Image

 

 
 

The first Knighting of the new school year was awesome. The club reaches out to our community through sponsorship of a character education program in the elementary school where students are recognized for their efforts by being knighted. The look on their faces says it all. This is a great program that reaches over 600 students in our community.Image

 

 
 

Centennial District Governor John Peterson, better known as "PaPa John" at Kendall Elementary School, takes his duty very seriously by attending every Knighting and EarlyAct meeting. Please join him sometime and see the good work our club is accomplishing.

President Elect, Ralph Lehner is leading an effort to raise $1,000.00  by October 24th ‚Äčto send in to assist in Rotary's efforts to eradicate polio. If each of us donates $20.00 we can easily meet this goal. At present, Rotary is on track to eliminate this disease from the face of the planet by 2018. Please help.Image

 

 
 

David McGovern was inducted as a new member this week. If you see David around, please welcome him in.Image

 

 
 

ImageHappy Birthday to Dillon Snell!

Dillon has been a Rotarian in our club for decades and he literally wrote the book on the foreign exchange for Rotary. We were all very excited to have him come to our club assembly where the club presented him with a check for $1,000 to the Rotary International Foundation in his honor.

Dillon also brought his Daughter Ann, nephew Norman and former exchange student to our club from 1980, Marion from South Africa.

Recently, the City of San Antonio was the location of a reunion of members of the U. S. Naval Academy class of 1962 organized by Don Allee and other local members of the class. One of the planned events was a ceremony at the Vietnam Memorial. Graduates of the Naval Academy can be commissioned as officers in the Navy or Marine Corps (and historically, in the Army and Air Force). Many members of the  class served in Vietnam. Some were stationed on ships that either provided gunfire support for operations ashore, or operated with aircraft carriers from which air strikes were launched. Those on ships at sea had the safest missions. Those exposed to the greatest danger were the Marines ashore and the Naval Aviators who flew fighter and attack aircraft or  helicopters providing support to the troops ashore or attacking enemy forces and installations in North and South Vietnam. Seventeen members of the class perished in Vietnam; others were captured and became POW’s. The scene depicted in the Vietnam Memorial was taken from a battle that took place in Vietnam in April 1967 when a large force of North Vietnamese tried to overrun the air field located at Khe San. A member of the class of 1962, Ray Madonna, now a retired Lieutenant Colonel, U. S. Marine Corps, was a Marine company commander at the time and participated in the battle. The Vietnam Memorial in San Antonio was the project of a group of citizens, including John Baines, who commissioned the memorial. On Saturday, May 10th, following a memorial brunch where all deceased classmates were remembered and honored, members of the U.S. Naval Academy class of 1962 held a memorial service at the Vietnam Memorial in San Antonio. As host, Don Allee, a retired Navy Captain and member of the Boerne Rotary Club,  introduced John Baines who told the group about how the memorial had been planned, funded and constructed on the site. Ray Madonna was then introduced and told the group about the battle and his involvement in the battle. One photograph is of John Baines, Ray Madonna and Don Allee as they are speaking to the group at the memorial, which included classmates, spouses and friends.  The group photograph is of members of the class of 1962 gathered around the monument.Image
