  • Adoption Awareness 
    Each March, our club hosts an Adoption Awareness event.  Our club provides the venue and activities so Texas Child Protective Services can bring together older adoptable children with pre-screened prospective families.  Children and potential parents can spend time together in a casual setting.   This event has facilitated the adoption of nearly 50 children in the past few years.
  • Adopt-A-Highway
    Our Rotary Club has adopted a two mile stretch of road on Pace Bend Road in Spicewood to help keep our local Lake Travis roads looking beautiful!   We've been a part of the program for many years and pick up litter approximately 4 times a year.  The Texas Adopt-a-Highway program began in 1985 and has grown into a nationally and internationally recognized litter-prevention effort, saving taxpayers’ dollars and helping to keep our roads looking beautiful!  The Adopt-a-Highway program currently has more than 3,800 participating groups across the state, with thousands of individuals, like our dedicated Rotarians, who dedicate their time to actively making a difference!

  • Lake Travis High School and Hudson Bend Middle School Interact Clubs
    Interact is a club for youth ages 12-18 who want to connect with others in their community or school. Interact club members have fun while carrying out service projects and learning about the world. Interact clubs organize at least two service projects a year: one that benefits their community and one that encourages international understanding.  Lake Travis High School and Hudson Bend Middle School have newly-energized Interact clubs that are a sanctioned part of school activities.  While Interact clubs receive guidance from individual Rotary clubs, they govern and support themselves and learn leadership skills.
     
  • Scholarships for Lake Travis High School
    A major portion of our fundraising proceeds goes towards scholarships for college and vocational education.    Local high school students fill out an application that delineates both need and merit and our Rotary members conduct interviews and select awardees.  To date, we have awarded more than $450,000 to Lake Travis students.
     
  • Rotary Youth Leadership Award
