What's going on?
Our great member of the Rotary Club of Houston Heights, Chad Greer, accepts a check from President Stephen Monson to help Habitat for Humanity in its efforts to build housing for veterans and others in need.  Thank you, Chad for your work.  Rotary makes a difference in the lives of people!
Wade Bradford, our good Rotarian with the Rotary Club of Houston Heights, is presented a check by President Stephen Monsen to promote Pure Water for the World in Guatemala and Central America.  Wade is tireless and devoted to delivering pure water systems that are so dearly needed in countries that struggle to get sanitary water to drink.  Rotarians making a difference!
 
For almost 8 years, Fratelli's Ristorante has served as our "home" for our club meetings.  Barbara Marquis and her staff have made us feel welcomed and have always taken good care of us at our luncheons.  Thanks to this wonderful lady, her staff, and everyone at Fratelli's.  You have made Rotary better because of your help!
President Stephen Monsen (in the red shirt) and Richard Gruen (right) present a check for $1500 to Don Sweat with Today's Harbor for Children.  For years, Richard has been involved in this work and has had the support of our club.  Children who might not have the advantages of a safe place to live and be nurtured are given a "step up" by this good organization.  Our Rotary club cares!
Each year, through our club Foundation, we award scholarships to local students from The Heights.  These scholarships help these fine young people to go forward with their education and become valuable members of our community.  Shown here are Tony Allman, our club scholarship director, and three of the young people from Heights High as well as their sponsor.
Each year, the Rotary Club of Houston Heights donates bicycles to kids who have had perfect attendance at their elementary school.  Gary Miller took this photo of kids at Love Elementary.  Scott Thompson made sure the kids at Helms  Elementary got their bikes, and Dave Mase did the same at Harvard Elementary.  Congratulations to these great kids!
 Norman Adams with Adams Insurance Services in the Heights was the lucky winner in our fundraiser raffle event last month.  He walked away with a check for $7500!  And guess what??? Being the kind of good fellow and supporter of the Rotary Club of Houston Heights that he is, Norman donated the check back to our club with his good wishes.  Norman is an example of one of our Rotary mottos..."He profits most who serves the best."  Thank you Norman! (shown here is Norman on the left with club member Scott Lester)

Wade Bradford, past Heights Rotary President, presented on Pure Water. Check out their incredible mission and vision on their website. 
Welcome to our newest members, Sue Marshall and Drew Aston!  President Steven Monsen presents these most recent inductees to the club.  Sue and Drew are outstanding individuals who have become a part of a world-wide organization which values Service Above Self!  Be sure to introduce yourself to these two new members and get to know them.
Last week our club inducted three new members.  All of these new Rotarians have unique talents and will add greatly to our ability to remain an active and meaningful club!  From left to right:  President Stephen, Kevin Hollister, Sajjad Hyder, and Paul Urquhart.  Be sure to introduce yourself when you see them.
Find a friend and join us at the Rotary Club of Houston Heights!  You are always welcomed, and we would like to have an opportunity to tell you about our Club and Rotary International.  If you value service to your community, you'll be in the right place.  Here are Clint Horne and Chris Boyles with his guests, Tal, Ben, and Aubry.  And...once a month we have a great off-site social at an area club/restaurant in the Heights.  Come check us out and bring a friend!
Join us at our weekly meetings to hear informative and interesting speakers from our community!  On November 1st the club heard from the Southwestern Guide Dogs volunteers.  What a wonderful gift their dogs are to those who are in need of assistance.  Come join us...you'll have great fellowship and an informative program!

Together, we provide. Children received backpacks and supplies to ensure a successful start to school- that's what people of action do. Join us Wednesdays at noon at Fratelli's to learn about our community service projects. Heightsrotary.org.

Our Global Grant to Ghana has been approved!  Our club contributed $1000 toward this grant, along with other clubs in District 5890 to bring needed agricultural benefits to this region...here is a little bit of information about the nature of the grant:

The goal of this two-year project is to increase economic prosperity and build resilient pro-poor communities around Mole National Park. This objective is pursued by diversifying the local economy and reducing dependency on limited land resources, while creating opportunities for people to be included as suppliers, managers, and owners of economic infrastructure. The project seeks to employ strategies that enhance existing social, natural, human, and financial capital in an environment where distance to markets makes all the difference in livelihood strategy decisions.
 

The Heights Rotary participated in an international project with eight other area Clubs to build four classrooms at the Cheheltan Middle School in Kabul, Afghanistan.  Before the classrooms were built, students were holding classes outside in the sun and under tents.  Girls in the morning and boys in the afternoon.  The project, started by the Humble Intercontinental Club, raised over $10,000 to build and furnish the classrooms.  The project was completed in October, 2012.

Check out the Photo Gallery to see pictures of the project, especially the girl holding the Heights Rotary banner.
