Rotary News
It wasn't hard to see a Rotarian driving a golf cart at the annual Peach Festival on Saturday. The annual fundraiser for Meals on Wheels provided rides on "people mover" golf carts to and from the festival. The golf carts were operated by current Rotary Club of Weatherford members, as well as some  special friends, which included former Parker County Judge Mark Riley. 
 
"The motto of Rotary is Service Above Self and that's what we did on Saturday," said President Andy Browning. " We were serving our community, while at the same time raising money to provide meals to those less fortunate. Yes, it was hot; but we can count ourselves all truly blessed and must never miss an opportunity to give back of our resources, especially our most valuable resource, our time. It cost us very little, but can benefit A Lot."
 
While the amount of money raised is yet forthcoming, it was a hugely successful day for all concerned. Thank you to all those who came out and served. 
 
The Rotary Club of Weatherford's new board was sworn in last week. This past year was an eventful year with some big accomplishments and community outreach. Our club delivered Meals on Wheels, worked with Habitat with Humanity building a new house, served Christmas meal to the seniors at the Parker County Committee on Aging, and much more.   One big accomplishment was the $5000 grant given to Stars and Strides to purchase saddles. This money came from a Rotary Foundation district grant that helps fund activities in our community. The work and dedication of our club this past year also helped award 12 scholarships to local students. In looking over the past year, past president Beau Rees says that it's been an honor to serve as president. 
 
"I am proud of what we've accomplished together and look forward to continuing to support our club in new ways," Rees stated. 
 
New president Andy Browning says he is looking forward to serving as president in the upcoming year. 
 
"We have a great group of individuals serving Rotary this year," Browning stated. "We have some who have served on the board for many years, and others who are stepping out and stepping up to serve our club. It is going to be a great year to be a member of the Rotary Club of Weatherford." 
 
Our club also named Joe Wilkinson this years' Rotarian of the Year. Joe has been an integral part of Rotary for many years, serving as both president of the Weatherford club and assistant governor of our district. He has volunteered his time with numerous activities including flag duty, driving golf carts at the Peach Festival, and other activities.  He is a true staple to our club and is well deserving of this honor. Congrats!
