As one great term comes to an end, another one begins. Paul Gray was elected and sworn in as our 2022-2023 President of the Rotary Club of Weatherford. His plans for our organization are nothing less than progressive, impactful, and formulated by his servant's heart. We are excited to see what the new board of Weatherford Rotary Club are capable of as we continue to serve our community with open arms and love for Parker County.
 
Charleton Dechart with First Tee spoke to the club at the May 17 meeting. First Tee is a youth development organization that enables kids to build the strength of character that empowers them through a lifetime of new challenges. By seamlessly integrating the game of golf with a life skills curriculum, they create active learning experiences that build inner strength, self-confidence, and resilience that kids can carry to everything they do.  There are approximately 150 chapters around the world, reaching 2.2 million youth. Participants (ages 7-18) progress through the program over time, deepening their understanding of life skills and golf development.  Parker County acquired a First Tee when the Ben Hogan Learning Center opened at Squaw Creek in May 2021. Squaw Creek offers all levels of Life Skills Curriculum sessions, as well as a number of camps during spring break and summer.

WEATHERFORD — Three Ikard Elementary fifth grades were excited to accept a check from Rotary Club of Weatherford members Tuesday morning.Rotary
Club members and Weatherford ISD staff were present to donate the check to the Ikard library after students won the pancake building contest at the 66th annual Pancake Supper in February, quizzing the students this week on how they prepared for the contest — they did manage to practice beforehand but did not know what materials they would be able to use.
