  Rotary E-Club of Central Texas gave away 650 Virginia Pine tree seedlings as a effort to help save our world.  Rotary E-Club members helped give away the trees both in Austin, Bastrop and nearby.  Members of Rotary E Club, Bastrop Rotary, Smithville Garden Club and many friends and neighbors took seedlings to plant on their own land. Donations to Rotary E-Club foundation were suggested in order to continue doing good in the world.

“We want to make a difference in the world for our children and grandchildren,” Club President Joan Bohls said, “and protecting the environment is one of the very best and necessary ways to do that.  Trees serve as an indicator for the health of the air and the world around us," Bohls said.
     The Rotary Foundation is the backbone of Rotary work.  Our DAP grant money and Global Grant funding are from The Rotary Foundation determined by what we give as a club.  
     The appeal for foundation giving was a great success and everyone had fun participating in the drawing for prizes.  Thank you to the following for donating prizes: Tiesa, Erin, Joan, Gene and Betty.  The prize winners were Tricia, Brigitte, Linda, Sam, Joan Celeste, Kent, Tiesa, Ashley, Carol and Twyla.  Congratulations to all for giving and winning!  We all win when we give!  Thank you!
      Dan Leal was our speaker this week and he shared the mission of the Seedling mentoring program.  Children of incarcerated parents are at great risk and Seedling Mentor program provides opportunity to make a difference in the life of a child.  Hopefully some Rotary members will become mentors.   
 
   
    November is The Rotary Foundation Month and our Rotarian of the Month is Gene Davenport, Foundation Chair.

     Rotary E-Club of Central Texas joined NxNE Rotary in a very successful project packaging rice, beans and dried vegetables to be sent where food and hunger are a big problem.   We bagged 10,152 meal kits and Rise Against Hunger will let us know soon what country it will be sent to.  Members  Martha Myers, Linda Tyler, Joan and Kent Bohls and their grandchildren Conrad and Smith Bohls helped package food at Casa Chapala Mexican Food Restaurant owned by President of NxNE Rotary Lupe Barragan.  Lupe was so generous to provide breakfast tacos, coffee and O.J. for everyone.  It was a wonderful opportunity to serve.  
     This project was funded by our DAP Grant which is a reminder that what we give to the Rotary Annual fund on My Rotary comes back to us to use for projects!  
   
On September 30 Rotary E Club of Central Texas held our second very successful food drive.  It was all about "Stuff the Truck" with food.  The truck was parked in a central location in Austin.  Friends and other Rotary Clubs were told about the Mobile Food Drive and the food came- 1060 pounds of food filled the truck and was donated to St. Louis Catholic Church Food Pantry.  We sat in lawn chairs by the truck under the shade of big oak trees and it became a Party during the Pandemic.  Neighbors and people driving by were curious and stopped to ask what we were doing.  When they knew, they went in their homes and brought more food.  Other Rotary Clubs that participated were Rotary Club of Cedar Park-Leander, Austin Rotary, Rotary Club of N.W. Rotary, NxNE Rotary, University Rotary Club, and Cosmopolitan Rotary. We all felt so good about the project and had fun doing it.  Thank you to all who came and helped!
   On September 27, the Rotary E-Club of Central Texas enjoyed a picnic at the 9E Ranch Cabins between Bastrop and Smithville. 

Support the Rotary Foundation

Every member who sets up an automatic monthly donation of $10 or more  in MY ROTARY -Annual Fund or has donated at least $100 since July 1,2020 will be entered in a drawing at the January meeting.  So far the prizes include:  One night stay at the 9E Ranch Cabins Lost Pines, honey from "My Hot Honey" from Tiesa Hollaway and Soap from  http//Bocamicrofarm.com donated by Erin Bocanegra.        

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.   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.
