Please remember to bring a new toy to the November 9th Rotary meeting for the Camo Santa Toy Drive.  Toys collected will be used at Santa's Workshop held on Fort Hood and will be used by the 36th Sustainment Brigade of the Texas Army National Guard.  
The Lakewood Elementary Service Club is collecting socks this month for local homeless shelters.  Please bring your sock donations with you to the Thursday meetings in October and they will be collected and delivered to the school.  
Save the Date! The 34th annual Spaghetti Supper is Friday November 10, 2017. This is our club’s largest annual fundraiser, and we need everyone to get involved by selling tickets and volunteering on the day of the event! Please pick up your tickets at this week’s noon meeting if you haven’t already done so. Contact Coleman Hampton or Jessica Bozon if you can’t make it to the weekly meetings and need to arrange to pick up your tickets at an alternative time. Coleman Hampton: (254) 933-5243 or Jessica Bozon: (979) 421-0971 or Links for volunteer shift sign-ups will be sent out through ClubRunner, and there will also be sign-up sheets on the tables at the weekly noon meetings.
Calling all bakers! We will be needing lots of yummy desserts to sell at the dessert tables during the Spaghetti Supper. Homemade items such as cookies, brownies, and rice krispies tend to sell well. Email Gail Peek to let her know what you can bring ( Sign-up sheets will also be on the tables at the weekly noon meetings. 
Since October 2010, the Rotary Club of Temple and its members have actively supported the Lakewood Service Club at Lakewood Elementary.  Students participating in the Club are exposed to important character lessons like truth, goodwill and better friendships as they elect club officers and run meetings similar to Rotary Club meetings. Providing opportunities for 4th and 5th grade students to demonstrate leadership and character, the entire school is involved with the group's service projects. Sustaining a multi-year partnership that has connected hundreds of students to the service and ideals of Rotary has been possible thanks to both the financial commitment and dedicated time of many people.
We have two socials in August. The first is on August 16 at 6:30 pm. We'll meet at Cheeve's to celebrate our Major Donors. Anne Penney Newton became a major donor just before the District's gala Foundation Dinner, but got quite sick and was unable to attend. We're also honoring Don Cast, John & Jeanne Cunningham, Leland Gersbach, Jonathan & Jennifer Graham, Harry B. Macy III, Harry B. Macey Jr., Gail Peek, Bill and Lynda Stokes, Doug & Marilyn Streater, Erroll and Barbara Wendland and David Yeilding.  We'd love to have as many as possible join us for a Dutch Treat dinner and terrific fellowship. Please RSVP to Jennifer Graham if you'd like to attend.
Our second social is by invitation only. In conjunction with the Temple South club, we will be honoring those members and their guest who had Excellent Attendance (80% and above) with a free steak dinner at the Gober Party House on August 25th. Invitations were mailed out, and a list will be on tables on Thursday. Please RSVP to Jennifer Graham. Remember that by attending socials, board meetings, district events, and make ups at other clubs, you can increase your attendance percentage. Just report your participation to Jackie Basile so you get credit for it.
Our two book shipments are on their way by rail to Los Angeles where they with ship by boat to Manila, Philippines. There they will be received by the National Council of Women in the Philippines. The group was organized after WWII from the resistance to the Japanese in the Philippines. The books will be inventoried and a book plate added by ghetto youth employed by their Department of Social Services before they are distributed to needy schools identified by NCWP.
Our club coordinated another shipment of books for the Books for the World project. We partnered with Ben Winkler from BISD, Maggie Gonzales and Gloria Allen with TISD and Brian Ranly with Wilsonart. Wilsonart provided two 18 wheelers free of charge to take the books down to Pasadena to the warehouse. BISD provided 21 pallets and TISD provided 25 pallets of school books that are no longer used. Books are shipped worldwide to third world countries and other impoverished areas that badly need educational materials. The next shipments are going to Manila and Beirut. Gail Peek, Robert Jones and Barbara Bozon met the trucks at the two school warehouses and got to see the loading in action.
We thank all of our partners for assisting with this project!
