El Campo Club mourns loss of life-long Rotarian, Joe E. Richards.

The Rotary Club of El Campo is saddened to report the loss of a life-long Rotarian, Joe Edward Richards, who passed away on August the 9th, 2018.
Joe began his love of Rotary while attending Palacios High School by becoming a Junior Rotarian and held the distinction as a Rotarian for 75 years. 
After high school he joined the U.S. Air Force. Upon his return to El Campo, he was nominated for membership to the Rotary Club of El Campo in 1944. Two years later, he moved to Wharton , where he and then Rotary District Gov. Farley Sanford helped to charter the Wharton Rotary Club in 1949. 
Richards eventually moved back to El Campo and rejoined the El Campo Club in 1967. He served as president from 1976-1977 and was also a Paul Harris Fellow. 
In 1973, Joe E. nominated his son, Joe H. (Little Joe) as a member and in 1996, son-in-law Tom Perilloux was nominated by Joe E. At that time they were the only family to have three members as Rotarians in the El Campo Club.
In 2014, Richards was selected as the honoree of the Rotary Club of El Campo's annual fundraiser and celebrated his 70th year as a Rotarian. Richards had faithfully supported and attended Rotary meetings and events throughout his 75 years as a Rotarian.
Even in his later years, after he could no longer drive, Richards made sure someone could get him to Rotary.Well done, Good Fellow, well done.
 
Today, Chad Waligura, creator and Editor of Able Outdoors, described how Able Outdoors got its start. It brings the entire accessible outside world into one place, to be an information source for everything outdoors: hunting, fishing, travel and all types of outdoor recreation. They connect individuals with the resources that will help them explore their abilities despite any challenges that may exist and to promote the opportunities that are out there waiting to be experienced.
