Imagine what we would accomplish if we work together! Click on the link below to hear John Germ's vision about joining forces between Rotary and the American Legion.

http://www.legion.org/legiontv/FLlEg8BvcEH4ZVkK6f9s_Z6Q/qCJjwYkGH9I

John Germ, current president of Rotary International, AF vet, and 25 year member of American Legion Post 14 in Chattanooga gives his thoughts on why American Legion and Rotary work so well together in helping communities. John states "I want my community to be a stronger, better community, and I can do it working with the Legion in various programs to make it happen."

ShelterBox.  What is it?  That's what John from the Rotary Club of Hutto asked while Ambassadors were set up at a booth at the District 5870 Conference of Clubs.  I was privileged to give a Shelter Box USA presentation to their club today.  Every person educated, every dollar collected, every box given--that's one more family given shelter, hope and dignity.  Please let Chelsea or Jim M. know if anyone needs an Ambassador to answer questions or give a presentation.  This is Rotary branching out to Service Humanity.

What an amazing visit with our DG Melinda Osborn, incoming DG Bruce Golden, and our AG John Barber!  Such a wealth of information.  Don't pforget to hashtag your club posts to share with the District.  Hashtags allow other clubs to see what we do and bring in more people that believe in Service Above Self.  Our District hashtag is #1districtstrong
 
Any social media posts that have #1districtstrong will show up for most of Texas, and as Rotary gains momentum.  It goes National and then Global!  Our club has a new member percentage of 17% this year.  We are not even half way through the year.  Keep up the good work!  The more amazing members we have, the more good we can do in our community and throughout the world.  Thank you for all you do!

What does the best Rotary Club do after a long few months of Golf Tournament Planning?  Why, make 20 gallons of chili, of course!
 
Special thanks to Rob House and Kenneth Kidd, as well as all who made chili, volunteered at the booth, and generally had a grand time!  Pflugerville Rotarians were also involved in our big, little town's Chili Pfest as organizers, Volunteers, and even Celebrity Judges!  Rotary continues to "do good" in our Community.  Although Chili Pfest isn't a Pfundraiser, it is important for us to be out in the Community showing all just how much Pfun being a Pflugerville Rotarian is.  Good job All!

Upcoming International Speaker scheduled for September 17th at the noon meeting.  Earl Follis of the Round Rock Sunrise Rotary Club has brought us the opportunity to host James Manyror, one of the Lost Boys of Sudan (who've been profiled several times on 60 Minutes, New York Times, and a few films).  We will be extending an invitation to all local media as well. James moved from Sudan to Denver in the '90s before returning to Sudan in 2005 to start an orphanage for other lost boys. He is flying in from Denver to speak to a select few clubs in the area.  All members and friends of Rotary are invited.  Special thanks to Earl for thinking of Pflugerville!  Here is his non-profit's website with more info: http://www.saoro06.org/ and here is background info on the Lost Boys of Sudan: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lost_Boys_of_Sudan .

Faith / Service / Fun

by Kevin Ward

AHG was started in 1995 and has been growing like wildfire since. It is a scouting equivalent to the girl or boy scouts, it is structured and works closely with BSA. AHG is a girls organization (ahgonline.org) and is designed to work with girls from 5-18 yoa to build women of integrity through service to God, family, community and country. It is to help build confidence as they grow and is faith based, owned by churches.

The Rotary Club of Pflugerville would also like to recognize with our greatest appreciation our three RYLA Camp Counselors and previous RYLA students: Tori Vaughan (Texas Tech), Anisa Ruiz (Texas A&M), and Mary Shirley (President Interact Hendrickson HS). Pflugerville Rotary continues to have great representation at RYLA. We are extremely proud of these students!
 
Our club and community have been very fortunate with these future leaders as well as the many more who are currently actively involved in our Interact Clubs. Aatiq has already expressed that he will begin working towards starting the Interact Club at Connally HS. He has our FULL support as well as the FULL support of the District 5870 Staff! We are also very thankful to PISD for their support of these great programs!
