Stories
Guy Overby provided the annual program announcing the selections for the Tivy Athletic Hall of Fame. He was joined by selection committee member Mike Dyal, a former inductee and professional football player.
 
 
There were sixty four nominations this year, and three selections.
 
Tamera Poppe, Joe Lara and Johnny Manziel are the selections for the 2022 season.
 
Tamera graduated in 2000, and was a four year letterman in basketball and softball, and went on to play softball at the University of Texas.
 
Joe was a 1971graduate of Tivy, and was a three year letterman on the football team, earning many honors including first team All-State defense. He played baseball for three years, and notched two no hitters as a pitcher.
 
Johnny graduated in 2010, and won many awards and set records on the football field playing quarterback, and he played baseball as well. He went on to play football for Texas A&M at quarterback for two years, winning the Heisman trophy as a redshirt freshman.
Various years of Tivy Graduates lined up to sing the Tivy fight song to start the meeting, with George Eychner leading the way.
 
Austin Hayes is a UT graduate, and former recipient of a Rotary scholarship. He thanked our club, and gave a presentation about his recent experience in the Czech Republic, in a summer learning program with other college age students. 
Thank you to the Salvation Army for scrambling to accommodate us in a different room when the air conditioning went out in the room we usually meet in. Thank you to Captain Jeremiah and the staff!
 
August is membership month, so bring a guest that could be a potential new member, and introduce them to Rotary.
 
The annual Rotary Walk-a Fun is scheduled for September 5th at Louise Hays Park. Check your email to sign up for this event that spreads the word about Rotary.

Rotary members used their decades of experience in the fight against polio to support local health authorities' response to Covid-19. Members volunteered at clinics, combated misinformation, helped prevent the spread of the virus, and advocated for fair and equal access to vaccines.

Darrell Beauchamp, executive director of the Museum of Western Art, provided the program about the latest happenings at the museum.
 
 
The museum has gained a reputation as a first class facility, and has been voted one of the top ten museums of the west by True West Magazine. Visitors come from all over, including eight percent of folks from outside the U.S., and forty percent from outside of Texas.
 
The MWA recently acquired one hundred and thirty seven pieces of art and sculpture from the L.D. Brinkman Foundation Collection on a permanent loan. The museum's artwork is rotated out on a consistent basis, so there is always something new to see including four different exhibits this year.
 
The museum also hosts private events, educational workshops, as well as lectures and tours for the public and schools highlighting western art and the history of the west. The last Saturday in each month is Family Free Day, and one week summer camps are offered each year for school age kids.
 
It was founded in 1983, so the forty year anniversary is coming up.  Give the museum a visit and see what you've missed.

George Eychner led us in singing a Guadalupe River themed song to the tune of Rolling on the River, for the efforts of all who participated in the River Clean up.
Dr. Mark Mosier, a local dentist and pilot,  provided the program last Wednesday on his family members who were awarded the Congressional Gold Medal. This medal is the highest award available to civilians, and is for those who have performed an outstanding  deed or act of service in the national interest of the United States.
 
 
Mark's father and grandparents were awarded the Congressional Gold Medal for their service and leadership during WWII while serving the the Civil Air Patrol in Herington, Kansas. In 1941, Congress approved using civilian aircraft and volunteers to help protect the mainland. Services included search and rescue, anti-submarine patrol and warfare,  intelligence gathering, and training and education.
 
 
Mark's father, who got his pilot's license when he was just 16, joined his parents in the Civil Air Patrol and trained troops and collected intelligence data. His grandfather was head of the large  Herington CAP unit, and his grandmother was head of intelligence and developed a navigational instruction classroom teaching system.
 
The discovery of Mark's father and grandparents roles in the war became apparent when documents and photos describing their service were found in a safe, which survived a building that had burned down in 2019. The documents were eventually handed over to the Civil Air Patrol, and the trio's accomplishments were rewarded with the Congressional Gold Medal.
 
 
 
Dave Rittenhouse led us in the Junior Birdmen song. This was an national organization which started in the 1930's for boys and girls interested in aviation and model plane building, and was founded by the Heart newspaper organization.
