Rotary News
The Rotary Club of Weatherford awarded 10 scholarships at their regular meeting on July 20. Students from Weatherford High School, Peaster High School, Weatherford Christian, and Weatherford College received scholarships this year. Each scholarship came from money raised from the annual pancake supper in February, amounting to $1,000 each. It was a blessing for the club to award the scholarships after the turbulent time of COVID.
 
"The Weatherford Rotary Club persisted in times of chaos to make sure that the kids in the community had an opportunity to apply for scholarships without club by raising funds in a creative way, " President Rachael Watson explained. 
 
Scholarships were awarded to the following students: 
 
Kurt Hatch                Emily Kemp 
Jordan Cash              Anna Yoder 
Madylen Wolfsen     Bryson Smith 
Peter McDow           Emily Allen 
Emma Groce            Keller Warren

The "creative way" was holding the annual pancake supper outside and as a drive thru, allowing attendees to be able to participate while social distancing. It was radical contrast from previous years when the event was held at the Weatherford High School cafeteria.

The club also inducted two new members at their regular meeting: Allison Bedore and Dan Robertson. The club is excited to welcome these two new members. Allison is a transfer from the Aledo Rotary Club and Dan is joining under the American Legion Post #163. Welcome!  It's a great time to be a Rotarian!
