PDG C. W. "Billy Settles, 68, of Victoria, Texas passed away Thursday, October 2, 2014.  PDG Settles was a very active Rotarian, and an active member of his community.  For anyone who knew PDG Settles, you know he was a "Johnny on the Spot" type of guy.  No matter what issue you may have had or situation that needed resolving, he was able to assist.

I had the opportunity to visit with Jo Ann and the family during the visitation scheduled for Tuesday, October 7, 2014, at the First United Methodist Church in Victoria, Texas.  It was no surprise to me when I pulled up to the church and saw a parking lot full of cars and when I walked into the building and saw all of the individuals paying their respect to the family.  The family had placed several pictures and plaques out for friends to reminisce about the past.

A memorial Service will be held at 10:00 a.m. Wednesday, October 8, 2014, at First United Methodist Church in Victoria, Texas.  The Rotary Club of Corpus Christi Northwest has voted to make a Donation to Rotary International for the Polio Plus project in honor of PDG Settles.  If you would like to make a personal donation and need contact information for Rotary International, please contact Donna Weiss, Secretary/Treasurer.

A few topics from the September 17, 2014, meeting you need to know about!

Adoption Awareness Picnic - HAVE YOU SIGNED UP TO HELP???  Our club is a co-sponsor of the Adoption Awareness Picnic.  President, Vicki King, attended the September 9, 2014, planning meeting.  Our club is responsible for several events and we will need the assistance of our members and interact club students.  These events include:  1)  Inflatable Games (3); 2)  Book Corner Reading Center; 3) Hellum Balloons; 4)  Fishing Tank; 5)  Bean Bag Toss; and 6) Face Painting.  Please sign up and let us know where you would like to help.  During the planning meeting, a decision was made to only have 10-15 Interact Students from each Interact Club assist during the picnic since there are five (5) Interact Clubs that will be involved this year.

IT'S PARTY TIME!!! - - - The following request has been in the newsletter for two weeks and the only response I have received is that the 18th is not good for some.  Please let me know if the 11th or the 25th of October is good for you.  I do not want to book the room at K-Bob's if no one is going to attend.

     When are you available?  We are planning a night for a social...either Saturday October 11, 2014; October 18, 2014; or October 25, 2014.  Let Vicki King know which Saturday evening is best for you. Please bring your spouse or significant other and join us at K-Bob's in the bar section for a dutch treat social.

CHRISTMAS PARTY - - - To be announced!!!  Be thinking about the dates.

 

 
 

Our meeting helpers for last week were "Johnny on the Spot" as usual.  Thank you to all members for the assistance with the meeting.  I would also like to thank the visitors for coming to our meeting.  It would not be successful without you.

 

 
 

LAST WEEK!  If you were unable to join us for last weeks meeting, you were greatly missed. Our speaker was Daniel Schwart, Managing Librarian of the Owen R. Hopkins Public Library.  Mr. Schwart's informed us that the public library is not just books, movies, or magazines to be checked out, but it is about so much more...computers, Kindel Fire and 64 hours of library access..  You may obtain more information about the library at www.cclibraries.com and www.facebook.com/owen hopkinschildrenspage.  If you live within Nueces County, your library card is free.  However if you live outside the Nueces County area, your library card is $25.00 per membership.  All replacement cards are $2.00.  With your library card,  you will also have online resources. If you by chance already have a membership with the library and have overdue fines, September is Hunger Action Month where the Library is accepting "FOOD FOR FINES."  You may deliver non-perishable food items (no expired, dented, or opened cans less than 10 oz.), which will benefit the Food Bank of Corpus Christi and Senior Community Services Division - Elderly Nutrition Program.  Check it out...it is a great place for you, your children, or your grandchildren.

 

 
 

IT'S NEVER TO LATE TO GET STARTED

   CAN YOU BELIEVE IT???  It is time to start thinking about the 10th Annual Scholarship Fundraising Fish Fry.  We have scheduled the event for FridaClick to viewy, March 27, 2014, at the VFW Hall on Leopard.  YOU CAN HELP!  Start thinking about auction items, patrons to invite, and new people.  We had a great event last year...let's make this one bigger and better.  Let's make each year bigger and better.  The harder we work, the more we are helping the students with their education.  REMEMBER...IT'S FOR THE STUDENTS.

 

 
 
 
 
 

IT'S A NEW YEAR!  The Rotary Club of Corpus Christi Northwest would like to welcome all of the new members of the Calallen High School Interact Club and NEW SPONSOR, Charlene Dietrich.  The Northwest Club is looking forward to meeting everyone and working with everyone at all the upcoming events.  Each year has been amazing.  Let's make this year a year to remember.

 

 
 

HELPING THOSE IN NEED!  Don't forget our 50/50 drawing each week.  Keeping with the spirit of giving to the community and helping the kids, the club has voted to donate the proceeds of this drawing to the Refuge of Hope.  As you know, the Refuge of Hope helps pregnant women and teens through whatever situation they may be in.  Every little bit counts!
