Rotary News
From Marnita Stinnett:
 
Thank you to all Rotarians that came out and participated in the Games of Weatherford! Rotary won (WhooHoo!) with 100 points to the Lions' 80 points. It was a lot of fun and a special thank you goes out to Peggy Hutton for assisting in organizing the event.
 
The best part of the competition is the fact that between the 2 clubs, we raised about $2700 to be split between Center of Hope, Manna and Weatherford College Foundation. Amazing!

Eladio Montalvo faced a stark choice: risk drowning in his one-story home or climb through a window into the house next door. It was under construction but had a second floor where he could escape the rising floodwaters. He boosted his dog through and scrambled in after him. The two huddled inside an upstairs bathroom for 22 hours while Hurricane Maria raged over Puerto Rico. With 155 mph winds and torrential rains, Maria was the strongest hurricane to hit the island in more than 80 years.  

After the storm, Montalvo went out to see what was left of the home he had lived in since 1958. The walls were standing, but the water inside had risen chest-high. Everything was destroyed. Without any family nearby, he had nowhere to go. He moved into his car. 

“But after the storm came the calm,” he says. “Good people came.”

New York Rotary members used support from international partners to help them fight a major U.S. problem: opioid addiction. 

After attending a wrenching funeral for a young man who died from an opioid overdose, Lana K. Rouff, a member of the Rotary Club of Binghamton, New York, USA, knew she had to do something. 

“It was awful,” says Rouff. “I was so shaken by the shock and sadness at the funeral. The experience really stuck with me but also sparked me to do something.”

The Weatherford Christian School Interact Club met on Wednesday, November 28, and constructed 50 gold headbands for the Brooke’s Blossoms Foundation supporting pediatric cancer research. Brooke’s Blossoms will be doing a pediatric cancer fundraiser fashion show in NYC in December in conjunction with the Runway Heroes foundation.  As part of it they would like to offer the pediatric cancer patients gold headwear to have and wear.

Seventeen of our club members (the boys were in football practice) met in the WCS cafeteria and put together these 50 gold flower & feather headbands.

It was a great day for a great cause!
