Dear Incoming Presidents Elect:
Congratulations for being chosen the new President Elect of your Rotary Club for the 2018 
2019 year. This is indeed a great honor and the beginning of your personal commitment to
Service above Self. The New Rotary Year will begin with the largest Rotary function of the
District, The Marble Falls Fish Fry. For the past 68 years, Marble Falls Rotary Club has been
hosting all of the Clubs in the District. The Fish Fry is not a fundraiser. It is a time for all of the
presidents, officers and members to get together and enjoy the best catfish around, prepared
by our own club members. This year it will be held on Friday, July 13, 2018 at the Lakeside
Pavilion, 307 Buena Vista, on scenic Lake Marble Falls. Doors open at 6:00 p.m. Bring your
officers, club members and spouses and join us in our annual celebration! Your club will be
recognized at the event.
We are proud to announce that this year's speaker is Past District Governor, Lisa Herring, of
San Antonio District 5840. She will be a delight to all in attendance.
As if this isn􀍛t enough, after the meal and wonderful speaker, we begin the Afterglow Dance.
We will have live music by our Clubs own Bill Rives Band until 10:00 p.m. Have a fun time with
fellowship and acquaintances and make new friends from other clubs in District 5870.
For all of this, tickets are $12 for adults and $5 for children and can be purchased online at
www.marblefallsrotary.org or at the door.
We hope to see you there!
Sincerely,
John Salem
Past District Governor

PRESS RELEASE

Area Rotary Clubs helping to control Cholera in Mexican Mountains
 
The Rotary International Foundation of Evanston, Illinois has awarded a $50,000 Global Grant to the Rotary Club of Marble Falls and the Huejutla (way-hoot-la) Centenario Club of Huejutla de Reyes, Mexico. The purpose of the grant is to establish water purification stations primarily in the indigent Sierra Madres Mountains just outside of Huejutla. The program will be a joint effort of the Rotary, the County of Huejutla and the CECyTE magnet school also located in Huejutla.
 
Although no longer as common worldwide, cholera is still highly prominent in this region that struggles with poor water contamination and unregulated sanitation. The disease is spread from person to person through water and contaminated feces, from both animals and humans, causing serve sickness and even death. According to the World Health Organization (WHO) 90% of Mexico’s cholera cases are from the state of Hidalgo, where Huejutla is located. Hidalgo lies north east of Mexico City.
 
The initial project will place 4 purification stations in the region. One of the stations will serve as a training site that will teach students to maintain and operate the purification sites. The CECyTE School has an enrollment of over 500 students many from the indigent areas.  The school also plans to maintain a permanent program of water purification and sanitation. Along with area Rotarians they plan an extensive sanitation education program. This project, if successful, will be sustaining leading to dozens more stations in state of Hidalgo.
 
In addition to the Marble Falls Noon Rotary Club, the project is also being funded by other area clubs including the Rotary Daybreak Club of Marble Falls, The Rotary Club of Burnet and the Rotary Club of Lakeway/Lake Travis. Rotary is one of the world’s most prestigious service clubs with over 1.2 million members, with more than 33,000 clubs in 200 countries worldwide. The foundation was recently voted as the Worlds Outstanding Charity in 2017 by the Association of Fundraising Professionals. The cornerstone of this excellence has been its 30 year Polio Plus campaign to erase polio. Starting in 1985 it has reduced the number of worldwide reported cases from 350,000 yearly to just under 300 in 2017. Also the number of countries where polio has been reported to be just 3. The foundation along with the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation has raised over 1.3 billion dollars for this effort.
 
For more information please contact Rotary at www.rotaryorg. The Rotary Club of Marble Falls meets every Thursday, noon at the River City Grille ;www.marblefallsrotary.org. The Rotary of Marble Falls Daybreak Club meets every Tuesday 7 AM also at the River City Grille; www.marblefallsdaybreak.org.

Rhonda Clifton has demonstrated the Rotary motto of "service above self" in so many ways since I've known her.  She has been involved with prison ministry, addiction recovery groups, meals on wheels and many other services to help other people.  She always puts the needs of others before her own. She is well deserving of this Paul Harris award.

RAW (Rotary After Work) will be this Thursday, from 5:30 -6:30 at On the Rocks. It was supposed to be at Bella Sera but they have scheduled another group there.
 
Starting in November, RAW will meet on the 2nd and 4th Tuesdays at Enotecca in Marble Falls from 5:30-6:30.
 
If you are a current member, do a make-up with us.
 
If you are a former member, consider rejoining Rotary and making us your regular meeting time and place. We are looking to increase Rotary membership by having this evening meeting a couple of times a month. It will be informal but will give you an opportunity to stay involved with the community and serve others without the weekly obligation. The idea is to make participating in Rotary work with your schedule with membership tied to the existing clubs in Marble Falls. We are not starting an additional club.
 
We look forward to seeing you this week or in November.
 
Kathy

Area Rotary Clubs Announce New “RAW” Meetings

 
Now you have a choice morning, noon or nights to attend a Rotary Meeting. The Rotary Club of Marble Falls and The Daybreak Rotary Club of Marble Falls announce RAW- Rotary After Work.

The meeting is a joint venture between the Rotary Club of Marble Falls which meets every Thursday at noon, and the Daybreak Club of Marble Falls which meets every Tuesday at 7 AM.
 
“This new meeting time will give members of both clubs, former members, and perspective members of Rotary an alternative meeting time for them to attend” says Rotary Club of Marble Falls President Mandy McCary.  There are no charges to attend. The meeting will start with a social and have a formal presentation. Members and guests are encouraged to stay for dinner afterwards. However this not required and will not be part of the meeting.
 
“This new meeting is a response to those whom cannot make the morning or noon meeting and have time constraints during the day”, sites Rotary Daybreak President Taylor Smith .This will also provide an opportunity for those interested, in joining Rotary  a more convenient time to preview the activities of the two clubs.  Those guests wishing to attend will be asked to join the one of the two local clubs.
 
For current members and visiting Rotarians, this will count as a regular meeting or a makeup. RAW will be held every other week for now until the concept grows. The clubs are also looking for another venue which they intend to announce soon. Those wishing to attend are urged to attend the first meeting.
