Feeding the Hungry

Club members volunteer monthly to pack and distribute food at the El Buen Samaritano Food Pantry. 

What's Happening
We sponsored a wheelchair ramp build in conjunction with Texas Ramp Project on Saturday, May 11. Volunteers assisted in the construction of the ramp under the guidance of experienced contractors. Keith, Bill, Bob, Holly, Enrique, Beth, Gary and George were present from our club along with Andres, Reyna & Rafique from El Buen Samaritano. Plus Stan Barnes, Gary's son and two grandkids, and two friends of Beth's. What a turnout! 
 
 
George Kennebeck was inducted into the Roll of Fame at District 5870's Conference of Clubs. George joined Rotary in 1998. He joined because he liked our service projects and wanted to be involved. He served as our Vocational/New Generations committee in 2004-5, Sergeant at Arms in 2008-9, and as a Director in 2017-8. George spearheaded and led our Coats for Kids project with West Rural Center for many years, and we now call it "George's Coats for Kids." In 2022, George was named "Dependable George" by the club as he participates in 90% of all service projects. He contributes weekly to the club by offering a "joke of the week" or as President Brenda calls it "laughter for the soul." George is truly a dedicated Rotarian and a fine example of Service Above Self.
We'll be at the SFC Farmers' Market this Saturday, May 4 for our New Home for Styrofoam project. We have two spots open for the morning shift (8:30am-11:00am), and you can sign up HERE if interested. 
Thank you to our Title Sponsor, Roger Beasley Mazda for taking drone footage of the start of our golf tournament!  It was a beautiful day and we hope everyone enjoyed being out supporting our 25th Annual Charity Golf Tournament.  It was one for the books!
 
Club representatives for El Buen's 35th Anniversary Celebration are Beth Long, Gary Cataldo, Jack Gabig, Roblyn Thorne and Bill Poplin.  It was a fun day and we are proud to support El Buen.
