One of the challenges of an E-Club and of the pandemic is building better friendships.  So the goal of Rotarian of the Month is to know each other better.  Jerry Lozano is our first Rotarian of the Month and he will name the next Rotarian of the month.  When you are named please forward me a picture and lots of information about you- like where you grew up, family, schools, career, hobies, Rotary service.  We want to get to know each other.  We would also like for you to do a "classification talk" at our monthly zoom meeting.  Let's keep working towards getting to know each other better.  
2019-2020 E-Club Recognitions
Rotary E-Club had a prominent role in the District 5870 Celebration of Clubs held July 18, 2020 via Zoom.  Kent Bohls led the Celebrationof Life remembering 21 district Rotarians who have died over the past 14 months.  Sam Haddad, Martha Myers and Nancy Keck were recognized for their leadership in the district.  Ashley Rodriguez will chair Youth Services for the coming year. 
E-Club was recognized for being one of 34 clubs for being 100% TRF (every member giving at least $25 to one of the Rotary International Funds); we were 1 of 33 clubs who achieved EREY (each member gave at least $25 and the club average was over $100 per member); we were 1 0f 24 clubs who were Sustaining Members (each member was credited with giving at least $100).  Our club also is 100% Paul Harris Fellows.   Our club members also gave over $1500 to Polio Plus.
District 5870 created the Rock Star Challenge last fall to get us onboard for branding;  there were 5 levels.  29 clubs made levels 1 and 2; 20 made level 3; 17 made level 4; 15 made all 5, including E-Club!  We will receive a specially created banner and a Facebook Cover photo! 
We were notified we will also be receiving the Rotary Citation for the 2019-20 year!  
We have done awesome service projects during the year and now have the approval for our $96,525 Global Grant with Nepal!  
Well done, Rotary E-Club Central Texas!
 

 


 

ROTARY E-CLUB OF CENTRAL TEXAS

MOBILE FOOD DRIVE

Thank you to everyone who donated to our food drive. It was a great success with over 1000 pounds of food donated.

Rotary E-Club of Central Texas is part of Rotary International, the largest service organization in the world with over 1.2 million members.  We work in our communities and globally to make a positive difference in the world!

We are in unprecedented times for certain.  With the pandemic deaths over 100,000, the treatment of people of color, and the response of protests turning to violence, I realize that we need Rotary more than ever.  We need a place where all people of the world can work together and be in conversation, a place where service counts before any judgment, a place that strives for hope, health and compassion in the world and in our communities.  We need one another.  Rotary does connect the world and doors are opening to the healing possibilities that are called for.  I hope and pray that we can continue the fine work that Rotary that has been advancing for over 100 years.  Together we can make a difference.  Thank you for being a Rotarian.

Two quick reminders:  June 2, Tuesday evening at 6 p.m. Lalaina Rabary will be our guest speaker for our meeting; please came and share in the message of this dynamic Rotarian.  Tuesday June 16, 3-8 p.m., we are having a mobile food drive gathering food at 8207 Summer Side Austin, Texas.  Make a difference wherever you are!

Please be aware that June is the month we have chosen to make contributions to our E-Club Foundation.  These contributions fund the upcoming Rotary year – July 2020 to June 2021.  Patrick O’Farrell, Chair of the RESCUSA Foundation will be contacting all members to encourage your donation to RESCUSA.  All donations are used to fund E Club programs; Youth Programs, Water Well Projects, Pecan Springs Elementary School, Rotary Youth Exchange just to mention a few.  Whether it’s promoting peace, economic growth, establishing health clinics or providing children with school books or educational equipment, your gift helps Rotarians take action against the world’s most pressing humanitarian challenges.  RESCUSA Foundation is a 501c3 and all donations are tax deductable.  You may add a contribution to RECUSA when you pay your dues for the coming year.  Thank you for supporting our club foundation. 

At Rotary, we have no tolerance for racism. Promoting respect, celebrating diversity, demanding ethical leadership, and working tirelessly to advance peace are central tenets of our work.

We have more work to do to create more just, open and welcoming communities for all people.

We know there are no easy fixes and that challenging conversations and work lie before all of us. Rotary’s strength has long been our ability and commitment to bringing people together. We will tap into that strength now as we stand with those who are working for peace and justice.

Rotary will do our part to listen, learn and take action to ensure that we continue to contribute to making positive change.

District 5870 has contributed a total of District Designated Funds of $111,102 to Covid-19 related activities. We created and funded a District DAP Grant in the amount of $61,102.  We were awarded from The Rotary Foundation a District Disaster Response Fund Grant in the amount of $25,000.

This total of $86,102 will be contributed to three hospital organizations who have a footprint in all corners of our District.  These organizations are Baylor Scott & White Central Texas Foundation, Ascension Seton Foundation and St. David’s Foundation.  The donations are exclusively to be used for the purchase of Personal Protective Equipment to be distributed to hospitals and clinics throughout our District.

Small scholarships help Illinois adults build their careers

Small scholarships help adults return to school and trade a job for a career - In a seemingly affluent Chicago suburb, poverty stops many adult students from affording classes to advance their skillsets. Local Rotary clubs are helping pay for school.
