Animal Rights Advocates
Last Wednesday, we heard from several animal rights advocates in the Kerr County area.
 
City Council member Brenda Hughes is active in Hill Country Animal Advocates, which is a volunteer organization whose focus is to save dogs and cats from being euthanized. 
 
The Kerr County Rabies and Animal Services (Animal Control)  duty is to protect people and property from roaming uncontrolled animals. Rabies control is their primary focus, and although they offer pet adoptions, they are understaffed to provide homes or owners of all the animals in their care. This is where several local non profit groups help out by rescuing animals, finding veterinary care and finding good homes for these animals.
 
 
 
Freeman Fritts is a low cost vet clinic and shelter that provides help for folks that can't afford the typical veterinary fees. They are a non profit, and are often the last stop for saving animal lives. They work with a number of other rescue organizations, and can often someone who can help. The clinic was very busy during the recent winter storm, taking in a number of animals whose owners either couldn't get back home to care for them, or others who feared their animals wouldn't survive the low temperatures in homes without power and heat.

Fund raising is under way for a new shelter facility.

Families in Rotary
  Jack Pratt is recovering in ICU after a Triple bypass. Dr. says the surgery went well.
 
  
Rotary prayers work! I would like to pass along a conversation with another Rotarian who shared a very personal story with me. Little over a year ago, Rotarian Guy Overby was diagnosed with cancer and began treatment. He told me that the prayers, notes, phone calls and support he received from his fellow members of the Rotary Club of Kerrville was so appreciated. Guy told me that he felt the love and support, which in turn motivated him to get through the difficult situation.
 
Today, he is cancer free and thankful.
 
 
The chef at the Kroc Center, Ed Lawrence , was recognized for making corn beef and cabbage and Irish stew. Both were great.
 
   Jeff Harris told of an event. as he was driving home he saw his neighbor walking home. He stopped and ask if the neighbor Glen Crain would like a ride home. Glen said I don't ever take rides from folks I do not know. Jeff said 
he was in Rotary with Glen and they were neighbors. Then Glen took the ride home.

Phone bank volunteers needed

Rotarians historically have stepped up to help the world, nation and their respective communities in times of crisis. Rotary Club of Kerrville members have a unique opportunity assist in the historic effort to help local residents receive the long-awaited COVID-19 vaccine by helping man the planned phone bank to help set appointments for local residents.

The COVID-19 Community Vaccination Phone Bank will be headquartered at 333 Earl Garrett Street, thanks to the space loaned specifically for that use by the American Red Cross Hill Country Chapter.

The phone bank will be operational Monday through Friday, from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Volunteers will work 4-hour shifts. President Tammy is currently in communication with Kerr County officials to determine detail on how many daily volunteers they need. More information will be forthcoming.

 

Code Red

Vaccine distribution information will be available through the county’s Code Red system.

To register for CodeRed alerts, just visit co.kerr.tx.us/eservices/ and click on the underlined link that reads “Click here to sign up for free.” A link to registration for CodeRed is also available on the City of Kerrville’s website, kerrvilletx.gov. at the bottom of the home page under “Helpful Links.”

Help needed for Zoom Meetings

As you know, Dave Rittenhouse has been doing a great job of hosting our virtual guests each week. However, we need more help. If you are willing to facilitate our Zoom meetings, we will provide the training you need to do so. 

It is very important to have backup for Dave. When this began, we did not know how long the need for virtual meetings would last. As it turns out, we still do not know how long we will need to offer virtual attendance.

Please let President Tammy know if you would be willing to rotate in as a Zoom facilitator for our club.

Texas Multi-Chem follow up
Note from: Steve Caraway / Texas Multi-Chem, Ltd., who was our presenter at Rotary on February 17th

I want to thank Rotary Club members for allowing me to tell our story on February10. However, I would like to properly introduce my son, Blake Caraway, who is
our general manager.

Blake is a 1993 Tivy graduate and besides being a very good student, played baseball and basketball for the Antlers. Graduated from Southwest Texas State University with a degree in Computer Information Systems. Blake is married to Kristy and has 3 kids, Mackenzie 11th grade at Tivy, Grant 9th grade at Tivy and Davis 7th grade at Peterson. Blake worked for Dell, Callaway Golf and Headsprings of Austin, to gain valuable IT experience. He brought that experience back to the Hill Country and TMC. During the past 12 years Blake has inserted technology into every phase of our daily business, managing information and allowing the company to grow. As our general manager, Blake handles day to day operations, scheduling, employee relations and payroll just to name a few. It has truly been a blessing to be able to work with our son to make TMC bigger and better.

Also, I want to thank Dennis Glenwinkel. Dennis has been our business consultant for several years. He has helped us navigate our expansion and growth plans at TMC.
