Flatonia Rotarians joined District 5870 and local Days for Girls chapters in Cedar Park, Georgetown and Belton to make the Gift of Literacy and an Education possible to girls and women around the world.
 
WHY WE ARE DOING IT
This VERY impactful project will change and provide equity of not only the girls/women that will receive the kits, but also their children and the communities they live in. Investing in a girls’ education through something as simple as personal hygiene kits can tranform communities and even their countries.
 
WHAT WE ARE DOING
Making personal hygiene kits, that once completed, will be shipped to girls in over 144 countries like Nepal, Guatemala and Uganda.
 
Kristine Schaffner (first row R) headed up the project for the Rotary Club of Flatonia and was joined by her daughter Jennifer (first row L), along with Flatonia Rotary Club president Gerald Freytag and his wife Beckie in Cedar Park to help package the hygiene kits to be sent to girls overseas. 
On January 29, 2022, during the District 5870 Foundation Gala, Flatonia Rotarians, Pat and Bernie Satterwhite were presented with their first Major Donor Award, signifying cumulative donations to the Rotary Foundation totaling over $10,000. The presentation was made by District Governor Beverly Luedke, assisted by DGE Shannon Coleman and the evening's keynote speaker, David C. Forward, author of "The Rotary Foundation: Doing Good in the World."

On Saturday, 5 February 2022, the Rotary Clubs of Flatonia, Hallettsville, Shiner, and Yoakum co-sponsored a global service project, Rise Against Hunger, at the Flatonia Civic Center.  

Driving Rise Against Hunger’s work, since their founding in 1998, is the recognition that ending hunger is more than just feeding people, which led Rise Against Hunger to focus its feeding programs in areas where they can have a real impact and expand its hunger-fighting programs beyond meal packaging and distribution. Because there are over 720 million people across the world that don’t receive enough nutrition to lead an active, heallthy life, Rise Against Hunger, is growing a global movement to end hunger by empowering communities, nourishing lives, and responding to emergencies. Their meal packaging program harnesses the passion of local volunteers and has impacted 2.8 million lives in 2020 alone.Since 2005, volunteer groups have packaged over 540 million meals, and each year hundreds of thousands of volunteers are engaged.

This Rise Against Hunger meal packaging event in Flatonia had 91 volunteers, young and old, from over 6 local communities, 6 Rotary Clubs, 4 Rotary Interact Clubs, and packaged 10,152 meals in less than 2 hours. It also embodies Rotary’s motto and theme, along with being able to share it with their local communities and friends. Thank you to all who volunteered to make this a successful global service project. For more information visit www.rotary.org and www.riseagainsthunger.org

Flatonia Rotarians gathered at the Flatonia Gazebo on January 11, 2022 at 12:15 PM wearing blue in support of Rotary's efforts to raise awareness of Human Trafficking. 

On Thursday, 30 September 2021, The Flatonia High School Interact Club had a service project to clean up the frontage road north of I-10 between FM-609 and State Hwy 95 for the “Adopt-A-Highway” program. The Flatonia High School Interact Club, students ages 14-18, is sponsored by the Rotary Club of Flatonia and was chartered in February of 2003. The purpose of Interact is to provide opportunities for young people to work together in a local and world fellowship dedicated to service and international understanding. The officers for this year are Senior AnaLyn Kozelsky, President, Junior Reece Ramirez, Vice President, Junior Elizabeth Palomera, Secretary, and Junior Nayeli Rodriguez, Treasurer, and the Interact Teacher Advisor is Mrs. Lora Cherry.

Rotary members support Interact as sponsors, guides, and mentors, working alongside Interactors to serve the local schools and community. Rotarians play an active role in the Interact Club by helping Interactors develop leadership skills, build connections in the community and become a part of Rotary’s family. “These Interact students are great kids and yearn to do service projects for their community. We had fun and had a great turnout today. They worked hard to help beautify our city.”, commented Lora Cherry, Interact Advisor.

 

(Above) INTERACT students of Flatonia High School helped to make our community more beautiful by picking up nearly 30 bags of trash along the I-10 north frontage road. (Below) Flatonia Rotarian mentors and supervisors helped with the highway cleanup.

Sponsor and mentor, Judy Pate (l) and President Gerald Freytag (r) welcome Tammy Collins (c) as the newest member of the Flatonia Rotary Club. Welcome Tammy!
