Welcome to the new section of our newsletter, Rotary Basics. We aim to provide basic education about Rotary to new members and guests to enrich their experience in our club. This will also help you be prepared when your friends ask you what is Rotary and what do you do? Stay tuned for more in our future newsletters.
 
What is Rotary?

“Whatever Rotary may mean to us, to the world it will be known by the results it achieves.” - Paul Harris, 1914
Rotary is an international membership organization made up of people who share a passion for and commitment to enhancing communities and improving lives across the world. Rotary clubs exist in almost every country. Our members change lives locally and connect with other clubs to work on international projects that address today’s most pressing challenges. Being a member is an opportunity to take action and make a difference, and it brings personal rewards and lifelong friendships in the process.
 
DID YOU KNOW? The name Rotary was selected by early members because meeting locations rotated among their offices.
 
How is Rotary Structured?
 
We have been blessed regarding the Rotary Fire Fighters Home second apartment!  Through the diligent efforts of Jerry Harris and Marsha, Mattress Mack of Gallery Furniture has committed to providing all the furniture for the second apartment! He is actually holding a press conference at the apartment the end of this month, to announce his donation and support of our project. We will be signing the lease on the second apartment the third week of July.  Then, we will begin moving in the dishes/housewares/wall decorations.  The weekend of July 27th, Gallery Furniture will deliver their furniture.  
 
Your help is needed in three ways: 
 
1) We still need houseware items for the apartment.  Please post the link to our Target Registry on your social media pages or make a purchase yourself.  The link is: 
 
2)  Volunteer to help us set up the apartment (we need two or three volunteers for this at most), and the date will be sometime between July 22nd and July 26th;
 
3)  Volunteer to help us with the Open House, which will be held on Sunday, July 29th from 2-4 PM. We need a couple of volunteers to help set up for the Open House and a couple of volunteers to help clean up afterwards. Set-up begins at 1:15 pm and clean-up should be completed no later than 5:00 pm. Please confirm with Brittany Johnson, Community Director, to sign up as a volunteer (832-725-0079).
 
FYI...Everyone is invited to attend the Open House, purpose of which is for you to see the apartment and to better understand the project in general.
 
We are excited to be expanding the number of apartments and we are excited to now be partnering with Gallery Furniture and Mattress Mack! Our first occupant, a firefighter from Beaumont, moves in on August 1st. The other apartment is occupied through September, as of right now.  Of course, this is a moving target because cancer is so unpredictable.
 
Thank-you for your support.

You're cordially invited to a special dinner created by Chef Soren Pedersen to take you on a unique culinary adventure. He catered to those with a passion for fresh and natural cuisine from local farmers. This exquisite experience will feature 6-course dishes and pair with 6 different wines hand selected by Stephanie Earthman Baird, DWS, CWE to enhance your culinary pallet. This event is hosted by Rotary e-Club of Houston & Vox Culture in honor of Rotary Wine Appreciation Fellowship.  

In loving memory of Martin Bailey. We dedicate this fundraiser to raise funds for the Martin Bailey's Garden at Wisdom High School. This project will provide Wisdom High School with a sustainable green space in the school that can produce resources to students including food, educational, and employment opportunities. Upon creation, it can also be used as a space for live teaching, while building agricultural, business skills, a sense of personal responsibility and opportunities for teamwork.
