What a great Thursday meeting this past week, times like that spark a renewed understanding of why we work hard at what we do, supporting those young students is what we do!  Great job to all that helped out on that task, remember that our Triathlon is coming up and it is because of that long standing event in our community we are able to give back to the youth of Texas similar to what you say on Thursday.

The Wild West Brewfest 2015 was a smashing success, we took a risk by moving to Katy Mills, but we believe that this move paid off in spades for us and for our recipients said David Loesch – Chairman of the Wild West Brewfest.   “At the end of each event, we surveyed our guests; overwhelmingly the number one thing that came back as positive was the new space and the awesome selection of beer” Loesch said.

Dear Rotarian,
 
We express our profound sadness and extend our sympathies to all those affected by the devastation resulting from the 25 April deadly earthquake in Nepal. Rescue missions and emergency aid continue to arrive in Nepal for the 8 million people impacted by the massive 7.8 magnitude quake.
 
As we mourn the thousands of lost lives, Rotary joins many international agencies in providing immediate relief to survivors and mobilizing our expertise to support long-term recovery and rebuilding efforts.
 
How to help: 
  • District 3292, Nepal, has established a disaster relief fund to provide needed equipment and supplies to affected communities. Contact District Governor Kumar Piya for information about contributing to the fund.
  • Rotary’s service partner ShelterBox is working closely with Nepali Rotarians to coordinate immediate relief efforts. On Monday, 27 April, and Wednesday, 29 April, Rotarians greeted ShelterBox response teams in Nepal who will mobilize temporary housing and relief efforts. An initial 1,000 housing tents and 1,000 shelter kits will be distributed throughout affected communities. Two more ShelterBox relief teams and additional kits are ready to be deployed once further assessments are complete. Learn more about supporting ShelterBox’s relief efforts.
  • As with all disasters, the Rotary family may apply for global grants to support long-term recovery efforts in Nepal. Once immediate health, safety, and relief efforts have been addressed, work with local Nepali Rotary members and their international partners to develop projects within Rotary’s six areas of focus.
Monitor the announcements section of My Rotary for more information as it becomes available and do not hesitate to contact relief@rotary.org with any questions.
 
Our thoughts are with our Nepali neighbors during this difficult time. Thank you for continuing to Light Up Rotary through your compassion and generosity.
 
Yours in Rotary,
 
Gary C.K. Huang

The Wild West Brewfest (WWBF) is a Katy, Texas area community event conducted once a year and produced by the Katy Rotary Club.  Over 90 craft brewers from across the United States come to enter the Craft Beer competition and to serve event attendees with over 250 taps (in 2.5 oz mugs).  This is a Brewers Association of America sanctioned competition.  Local restaurants will serve an abundance of free food.

Books donated in the name of our weekly guest speakers by the Club were presented to the Activities Director and several Brookwood residents for their Community Library.  Using our annual Valentine Luncheon as the backdrop, members were present to greet the residents and watch their happy acceptance of the new additions to their Library.  On the way into lunch the wrapped gift books were spotted by one of the residents who was serving in the Cafe today.  He gleefully said as he pointed to the stack, "Oh wonderful, my favorite, Scholarship Books!  I love them and read those all the time."Image

On July 25, 2013 The Rotary Club of Katy hosted a luncheon honoring their 2013 scholarship recipients.  There were 15 scholarships awarded in the amount of $1500 each for this group of outstanding Katy ISD seniors.  We had over 150 applications for these scholarships among all Katy ISD high schools.

The proceeds used to fund these scholarships comes primarily from the Katy Triathlon at Firethorne and the Children's Film Festival that are both hosted annually in the late summer and early fall by the Rotary Club of Katy for the benefit of the Katy Rotary Fund.
