News Around The District
I am more proud than ever to be a Rotarian!
 
On the weekend of November 3-5, 175 Rotarians and family members converged on the Embassy Suites in San Marcos for the 33rd Annual Multi-District Reunion of Districts 5870,5930 and 4130. Rotarians of our sector of the world banned together here to help each other overcome recent challenges and plan for the future.
 
Inspired by a keynote address from Frank Devlyn, PRIP 2000-2001, from Mexico City, the participants banned together to raise close to $12,500 during the "disaster recovery" auction to benefit storm victims in South Texas, Mexico and Puerto Rico.  Frank challenged us... and we responded. With our hearts and with our wallets.
 
RI President Ian Riseley has challenged each  Rotarian in each district WORLDWIDE to plant one tree for each member during this Rotary year. It can be planted in your yard, a park, in a business area, wherever your personal desire to plant your tree. It can be a 12" tall sapling or a towering 20' oak. Your choice.
 
To garner the most publicity possible for our Rotarians' actions, we have designated Saturday, February 10, 2018, as Rotary District 5870 Arbor Day, similar to the district-wide Pints for Polio event last month. So that we can garner the most possible publicity, we are encouraging all clubs in the district to concentrate their planting efforts on or around this specific date. We want to highlight to our communities that Rotarians in District 5870 planted 2500+ dresses locally on a single, united day, to Make a Difference.
 
More details will be forthcoming.  Regional Urban Foresters from the Texas A&M Forest Service will be working closely with us, via regular communiques (to come) and other helpful hints regarding which types of trees to plant where, etc. They will also guide us through proper planting procedures for our respective regions, to assure strong growth.
 
Please mark your calendars with this district-wide date so you will be ready to join the initiative when further details are formalized.
On November 1st, 20117 The Rotary Club of Lakeway/Lake Travis (RCOLT) and the Ladies of Charity/Lake Travis Thrift Shop (LOC-LT) entered into a strategic partnership that will leverage both non-profit organizations’ long-term goals in supporting humanitarian projects in the Lake Travis Area. The $60,000 donation from the RCOLT will help the LOC-LT Building, Community, Service Capital Campaign program and in return the LOC-LT will support the 18-year effort of the RCOLT’s Lake Travis High School College Scholarship program.
