There will be a blood drive coming soon, and details will follow.
The Labor Day Walk-A-Fun is scheduled for Labor Day, September 7th, and has been adjusted to meet the requirements of the City of Kerrville amid COVID-19 concerns.
It will be at Louise Hays Park, and Rotarians will be handing out cold water and sharing the story of Rotary  from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m.. We will be able to post our awareness signs along the River Trail and hand out invitations to NEXT YEAR'S EVENT! We will not have groups of more than 10 people and will be wearing masks and following CDC guidelines for social distancing.
Service Above Self Award
In early August we presented the "Service Above Self Award" to Maggie Rector, a Kerr County 4-H student as part of KC 4-H annual awards night. Maggie was selected by her peers to receive the award, which is based on the Rotary motto. She was unable to attend the awards banquet, so we recently met to take a photo to commemorate the event.
Maggie has performed nearly 100 service hours, even during a Pandemic and is an active member of three local service organization boards, in addition to volunteering on many levels. It was an honor to meet her.
'Thank You' note received
We recently received a "Thank You" note from scholarship recipient Liz Twiss. I want to share with each of you her words to our club. She wrote:
"Kerrville Rotary Club, 
Thank y'all so much for your generous scholarship! I appreciate it way more than you think! Without your generosity, college would be even tougher. Thank you for seeing the grit in me to pursue my dreams, while positively representing y'all. I promise to give nothing but my best in consideration for y'all. Thank you again.
Liz Twiss"
Concession Stand help needed
Past President Stephanie Miller has asked for help manning the Ingram Tom Moore High School concession stand on Friday nights during home football games.
She would appreciate help from membership or businesses. Volunteers can wear club or business shirts for visibility. It would mean a lot to her and the athletes to receive some help.
If you or your business would like to provide the assistance she is requesting, please contact her at
What could be better than spending a night at a high school football game?
