This event asked us to visit local businesses in the Clear Lake City area, advise the owners of the presence of human sex trafficking in this region, and ask them if we would allow us to post signs in bathrooms and vending areas that would offer victims (or observers of this crime) a number to call and seek help and assistance. Over 25 businesses were contacted and 75% of them offered their immediate support.

4. Remember— now is the time to prepare!   Have food and water, keep the car  gas tank full, have extra cash on hand, batteries and medicines on hand.  Now would be a good time to do a home insurance check-up!

Space Center Rotary Helps Save Lives!

Space Center Rotary Club is the International Partner on this Global Grant to help save lives of refugees and local women and children in Cucuta, Columbia.
 
 
Bill Davis said "Another wonderful Rotary day in Cúcuta, Colombia.
We visited the second and third Global Grants developed by Gladys Maldonado both at the Erasmo Meoz hospital in Cúcuta. A $55,000 project to provide equipment for the pediatric ward (RC of Baytown) and $127,000 to provide equipment for the Gynecology ward (RC of Space Center). The hospital President was most appreciative."
 
 
"These Colombians are so kind.  I was able to complement the hospital for their compassionate assistance provided to the Venezuelans under most difficult conditions.  More than one half of the patients are Venezuelans having fled their homeland. Cúcuta is in the border with VZ."
 
 
Bill Davis, second from the left, is a member of the Rotary Club of Humble and a master at creating partnerships between Rotary Clubs and Districts to make Humanitarian Service Happen!!  Bill was able to redirect the funding we had originally raised for a WASH project in Ethiopia to this awesome project after the Ethiopia project had to be cancelled due to the security risk in the region.

"Helping others through the gift of giving is such a gratifying experience for me and on today which is “ Giving Tuesday “ , with the help of the  Space Center Rotary I was able to do just that and what a blessing it was. I would personally like to thank the Space Center Rotary for helping me make this single mom and her family’s life a little easier and hopefully their new house into a home."

Random Act of Kindness in conjunction with Communities In Schools!!

Thank You, Space Center Rotary, 
for your Random Act of Kindness!
 
Stephanie Hornung, CIS Campus Coordinator at McWhirter Elementary with students
 
 
 
A single mother of 4 came to the Communities In Schools - Bay Area office at McWhirter Elementary holding an eviction notice in her hand.  She had three days to pay her rent.  While speaking with her, the CIS Campus Coordinator realized this was her last chance at keeping her home.  She had already called or visited several social service offices around town to no avail.  Mom had hoped to get some extra hours at work, but that didn't happen.  CIS got right to work and contacted Space Center Rotary and was put in touch with someone in charge of their "Random Acts of Kindness" program.  Within 12 hours, Rotary had the approval to assist this family and presented her with a $1,000 check to pay rent.  Needless to say there were tears of joy, relief, and appreciation in the CIS office.  CIS also provided the mom with information about the United Way Thrive program to help her improve her monthly income and budget for future month's expenses.  It was WIN-WIN day for everyone.

Another Local Act of Kindness

Lillian Alexander was nominated by Janice Albro recently to receive a Local Act of Kindness.  This woman, a bit down on her luck as of late, had been visiting the YMCA.  Several workers recognized that she would spend hours sitting on a bench or sipping a single cup of coffee began talking with her and found that she is homeless and was just seeking the shelter of the porch overhang or a warm cup of coffee.  The YMCA administrative staff took it upon them to offer her a complimentary membership so that she could use the showers and enjoy a frequent cup of coffee.
 
Meeting Lillian today she was pleased to share that she is doing her best to volunteer as she is able at the YMCA so that she is giving back to the people that have helped her.

PDG Floyd Boze (96) Passed Away Feb 20

Posted by Jon R. McKinnie on Feb 28, 2014
story thumbnail

It is with great sadness that I must report the PDG Floyd Boze passed away February 20th.  PDG Floyd lead a great life (see bio below), and was the kindest Rotarian that I have know.  Floyd was president of the Lubbock Rotary Club, became a member of Space Center Rotary Club on August 20, 1973.  Floyd was elected Governor of Rotary District 589 (now 5890) in 1984. His District Conference was held in Guadalajara, Mexico.  Floyd & Nancy were both Paul Harris Fellows & Floyd Boze Fellows.  As of this Rotary Year, 2013-14, Floyd had 63 years of perfect attendance, having made up missed meetings of his home club in more than 20 countries outside the U. S. Please say a prayer for PDG Floyd Boze's family.  Floyd was a true Rotarian, who lived the life of "Service Above Self".  And now we must say good-by to one of the truly good guys.  I'm sure God has already scheduled a Rotary meeting in heaven to honor the arrival of PDG Floyd Boze.  I can see the banner now, "Well done thy good and faithful servant".  And to no surprise, Brother Floyd will have perfect attendance into perpetuity.

Space Center Rotary's EarlyAct FirstKnight Program Tremendous Success at Whitcomb Elementary

Space Center Rotary's EarlyAct FirstKnight program has been a tremendous success.  Teaching chivalry and building champions -- that's what the program is accomplishing at Whitcomb Elementary School.  The program teaches children how to be role models and hold high standards for character. You haven't experienced Rotary, until you hear 700 young students recite Rotary's 4-Way Test "every morning".  Organizers hope the examples will rub off on other kids.  It was the last day of school for students at Clear Creek ISD, and some of them went home with proud parents and new titles for the summer.  Click on Houston's ABC Channel 13 News Reports

Stove Project in Honduras

Posted by Sheryl Berg on Aug 25, 2012
story thumbnail
As I look at the inception of our club’s involvement in this project, I am reminded of the First Principle of Rotary:  The development of acquaintance as an opportunity for service.  It was May, 2010 and my husband and I traveled to visit our son, a volunteer third grade teacher in a bilingual school in a small rural community in northern Honduras. We took a side trip to a beautiful Mayan community near the Guatemalan border—Copan Ruinas.  Enjoying the ruins and other sights there, we stayed at Don Udo’s a popular tourist destination and struck up a conversation with the hotel’s proprietor, Udo Van der Waag.  Seeing the familiar Rotary wheel on his lobby wall, we discussed our involvement—he a past president of his club, Distrito 4250, and me, a member of Space Center Rotary.  He invited me to view a project with which his club was assisting. It was a nothing more than a simple stove, called an ecocina.

RNASA Gala

The Rotary National Award for Space Achievement Foundation (RNASA) 
Celebrates its Silver Anniversary
with a Grand Gala Event

 
   Recipient of the
National Space Trophy 
 
General Kevin P. Chilton (USAF)

The Rotary National Award for Space Achievement (RNASA) Foundation is proud to be celebrating its silver anniversary with a gala event on May 6, 2011 at the Houston Hyatt Regency hotel. Founded by the Space Center Rotary Club in 1985 to organize and coordinate an annual event to recognize outstanding achievements in space and create greater public awareness of the benefits of space exploration, the Foundation has presented the National Space Trophy to an outstanding American who has made major contributions to our nation's space program since 1987.

The RNASA Board of Advisors selected recently retired Commander of U.S. Strategic Command, and former Space Shuttle Astronaut, General Kevin P. Chilton, USAF (Ret.) as the 25th recipient of the National Space Trophy. "General Chilton, as an Air Force commander and a former astronaut, is being recognized for his leadership in both our civilian and military space programs," Rodolfo González, President of the RNASA Foundation, said.

The Trophy will be presented to General Chilton by Astronaut Steven W. Lindsey, Colonel, USAF (Ret.) who commanded the last flight of the Space Shuttle Discovery that landed on March 9. Harris County  Judge Ed Emmett  will welcome guests to the event; the Clear Creek High School JROTC Color Guard will present the colors, and veteran reporter Miles O'Brien  will serve as emcee. Former Apollo Astronaut Lt. Gen. Thomas Stafford, USAF (Ret.) will present an Omega watch to Gen. Chilton.

The winners of the annual RNASA Stellar Awards will be announced at the National Space Trophy gala in the evening of May 6 at the Houston Hyatt Regency. Veteran NASA Astronauts Stephanie D. Wilson  and   Richard R. Arnold, II  will announce the winners and present them with engraved marble trophies.

"We had a record number of 151 Stellar Award nominees this year," reported Jennifer Mitchell, the RNASA Stellar Awards Committee Chairman. The nominations are subdivided into four categories, and the Foundation received 29 early career, 51 middle career, 35 late career, and 36 team nominations.  NASA nominated 19 individuals and seven teams, the USAF nominated five individuals and four teams, and industry nominated 91 individuals and 25 teams.

Winners are selected by a Stellar Awards Evaluation Panel based on which accomplishments hold the greatest promise for furthering future activities in space, the extent to which the nominee played a key role in the accomplishment, and the extent to which the nominee meets the goal of recognizing "unsung heroes." The 2011 Evaluation Panel consists of former National Space Trophy winners, Dr. Christopher C. Kraft Jr. and Dr. Glynn S. Lunney, and former National Associate Administrator for Space Systems Development, Arnold D. Aldrich.

Prior to the evening banquet, the Stellar Award nominees and their spouse or guest will enjoy a behind-the-scenes tour of Johnson Space Center and a special Stellar Awards Luncheon at the Nassau Bay Hilton. Hubble Servicing Mission (STS-125) Pilot, Captain Gregory C. Johnson,  UNS (Ret.) is the featured luncheon speaker.  

Each nominee will receive a special commemorative certificate at the luncheon and a special ribbon to identify them at the evening's banquet event.

The banquet is open to the public, but seating is limited. Please visit http://www.rnasa.org/tables.html for ticket information or contact Bill Taylor at 281-488-2733 prior to April 8, 2011.The RNASA Foundation is supported by corporate sponsorships.  Proceeds remaining after each year's event are donated to an organization involved in aerospace education.

Kay & I want to thank each of you for your support during the sad loss of our son, Ty (48), who passed away on 25th of Aug, my birthday.  Ty had been working in OR, got where he couldn't breathe well, drove home on Aug 15th. Went to Dr next day, was in intensive care 9 days where he succumbed from congestive heart failure.  Kay & I were with Ty until the end. Ty asked to be cremated and his ashes scattered in some of his favorite places. 

Ty loved to hunt and fish, never liked a crowd, so we have following his wishes with small gatherings of family & friends to scatter his ashes in a beautiful stream on his property in Arkansas (Aug 29), Toledo Bend Lake where he made many fishing trips (Sep 19) and my LA homestead which has been in family for 179 years (Oct 10).

Thanks again for your prayers and support for my family as we struggle through this hard time.  Ty is probably hunting in Heaven right now and is mad because God won't let him shot anything there.  HA 

May God bless Ty, our family and each of you.
