2015 Katy Triathlon
Sunday, September 27, 2015
Registration is open!
Proceeds from The Katy Triathlon benefit the scholarship fund of the Rotary Club of Katy which provides grants to graduating seniors of the Katy Independent School District and other valuable community projects. Rotary Club of Katy, founded in 1946, has raised approximately $380,000 for its community service projects since taking over the Katy Triathlon in 1998. In July, the Club will present 15 deserving Katy ISD high school graduates each with a $1,500 scholarship at its annual college scholarship luncheon.

We express our profound sadness and extend our sympathies to all those affected by the devastation resulting from the 25 April deadly earthquake in Nepal. Rescue missions and emergency aid continue to arrive in Nepal for the 8 million people impacted by the massive 7.8 magnitude quake.
As we mourn the thousands of lost lives, Rotary joins many international agencies in providing immediate relief to survivors and mobilizing our expertise to support long-term recovery and rebuilding efforts.
How to help:
Monitor the announcements section of My Rotary for more information as it becomes available and do not hesitate to contact firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
Our thoughts are with our Nepali neighbors during this difficult time. Thank you for continuing to Light Up Rotary through your compassion and generosity.
Yours in Rotary,
Gary C.K. Huang
President, Rotary International 2014-15
Yet another check, $1000 given to Brookwood Community to assist in buying defibrillators!
With over 4,000 people on the grounds of the Villagio Town Center on May 10th, your impact was quite substantial. We appreciate your commitment and capital and we understand your trust that we will deploy the funds in the proper manner to impact many people.
Books donated in the name of our weekly guest speakers by the Club were presented to the Activities Director and several Brookwood residents for their Community Library. Using our annual Valentine Luncheon as the backdrop, members were present to greet the residents and watch their happy acceptance of the new additions to their Library. On the way into lunch the wrapped gift books were spotted by one of the residents who was serving in the Cafe today. He gleefully said as he pointed to the stack, "Oh wonderful, my favorite, Scholarship Books! I love them and read those all the time."
