EVANSTON, IL (October 2, 2017) — More than 1 billion people around the world live in inadequate housing according to the United Nations Centre for Human Settlements. Through a partnership between Rotary and Habitat for Humanity, more will have access to safe and affordable housing across the globe.

The partnership will facilitate collaboration between local Rotary clubs and local Habitat for Humanity organizations, enabling Habitat to extend their volunteer pool by tapping into Rotary’s 1.2 million members in 200 countries and regions.

“Habitat’s aim to bring people together to build homes, communities and hope aligns perfectly with Rotary’s commitment to make positive, lasting change in communities around the world,” said Rotary General Secretary John Hewko. “With Habitat’s expertise and the power of Rotary’s volunteer network, we will help build the foundation for stronger communities.”

Every year our club presents a new dictionary to each Fourth Grade student in the Weatherford ISD. Dictionary Day will be Tuesday, October 24 following our regular club meeting as our members fan out to the 7 local Elementary schools. Contact Kathy Meyer to assist or sign up at our next club meeting.
At its September meeting, the Board of Directors approved to send $1000 to the McAllen North Rotary Fund (District 5930) for Hurricane Harvey Relief.  This district covers the Rockport area.  We are privileged to be able to give to those in need.  If you become aware of a service project that we could possibly be a part of in the relief efforts, please contact Marnita Langford.

“It is definitely a defining moment,” says Jackson, a member of the Rotary Club of Trenton, Mich., of that first jump at 14,000 feet, done in tandem strapped to a professional skydiver. “The rush of the free fall is beyond anything I have ever experienced before. Just the speed and acceleration is unbelievable. You don’t even have time to figure out if you are enjoying it or not; it’s just a sensation that happens.”

Jackson did enjoy the sensation, so much so that he agreed to do another jump, with Shiva Koushik, a Rotarian friend in nearby Windsor, Ont.
