Convention: City of peace
Though Atlanta has seen its share of violence and inequity over time, today it brims with reminders that there is another way. Get inspired while you’re visiting for the 2017 Rotary International Convention from 10 to 14 June. Take a short walk from the convention center to the Center for Civil and Human Rights. There, you can see the handwritten notes, speeches, and sermons of civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr., experience an interactive 1960s-era lunch counter “sit-in,” and learn more about persecuted groups all over the world. A streetcar will take you to the Martin Luther King Jr...

Arch Klumph’s hometown raises over $2 million through centennial celebration
Rotary members in Cleveland, Ohio, USA, celebrated 100 years of The Rotary Foundation on 23 October with a banquet and a concert by The Cleveland Orchestra that have so far raised more than $2.1 million for the Foundation's next century of good work. Arch Klumph, a Cleveland Rotarian, planted the seed for The Rotary Foundation in 1917, with his idea of having an endowment fund dedicated to "doing good in the world." Today's District 6630 leaders thought that a concert was a fitting way to honor Klumph and mark the centennial because of Klumph's love of music. Klumph performed in several...

Rewarding Notes
 

Being named the #1 Brewfest in the country by BeerYeti.com takes on a whole new meaning when you see the impact that the event has on our communities. 

On August 18th 2016, several thousand dollars were given away as a direct result from the 5th annual Wild West Brewfest held in Katy at Katy Mills Mall. 

Boasting over 500 beers and over 130 brewers and attendees representing 19 states and 3 foreign countries this brewfest has a life of its own. 

•    KISD Special Rodeo $2000 - helping special needs children by putting on a rodeo with face painters, animals, clowns and a catered lunch

•    KISD Fine Arts $15000 - assisting the youth of Texas in buying band and orchestra instruments for those less fortunate in able to participate in an activity whereas they otherwise would of not had that chance

•    Katy Christian Ministries $5500 - assisting in helping young students with study classes after school and providing the basic essentials such as backpacks and paper.

•    KISD Career Technical Center $3000 - helping our young leaders attend conferences that teach and instruct how to become tomorrows leaders

•    KISD FFA $21000 - helping young students participate in projects whereas they would of not had the eans to do

•    Fort Bend Charities $3000 - providing art scholarships to young students

 

What a great Thursday meeting this past week, times like that spark a renewed understanding of why we work hard at what we do, supporting those young students is what we do!  Great job to all that helped out on that task, remember that our Triathlon is coming up and it is because of that long standing event in our community we are able to give back to the youth of Texas similar to what you say on Thursday.  
What a year this has been and recognizing our members for their valuable cooperation is a must. Working as a team is what we do best and this year's leadership team was amazing!
 

Proceeds and turnout set another Wild West Brewfest record in Katy
