Rotary News
The 67th Annual Rotary Pancake Supper was held at the Weatherford High School cafeteria last Tuesday night with enormous success. President-Elect Beau Rees knows that it takes a village to put on an event of this magnitude. He wants to thank both the individuals who helped out the day of the event and the sponsors who generously donated money to make the event a success. 
 
"I'm so proud to be part of such and amazing group of Rotarians. Thanks to everyone for stepping up and making the 67th Annual Pancake Supper a success," Rees added.  
 
As to the numbers and how much was raised, those will be announced at the March 7 general meeting at the Pythian Home. Make plans to be there. 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Turkey and Syria were struck by a devastating earthquake on 6 February that has killed tens of thousands of people, destroyed thousands of homes and other structures, and left people across the region without shelter in bitterly cold winter weather.

The Rotary world responded to this catastrophe immediately. RI President Jennifer Jones activated our disaster response efforts, communicated with the affected districts, and encouraged governors in those regions to apply for disaster response grants and share information about their relief efforts so that Rotary can amplify the calls for support.

The Rotary Foundation Trustees decided that all donations made, from now until 31 March, to the general Disaster Response Fund will be used to aid earthquake relief projects. In addition, the Trustees made available more than $125,000 to Rotary districts affected by the earthquake through District Response Grants.

Rotary's project partner ShelterBox also has an emergency response team assessing the needs in the region and how it can respond. That team is communicating with Rotary district leaders. Rotary's service partner Habitat for Humanity International is also working on its response. Many Rotary members are asking how they can help. Here's how to have the greatest impact:

  • Give to The Rotary Foundation's Disaster Response Fund. Donations help clubs and districts provide aid and support rebuilding efforts where the need is greatest. The funds are distributed to affected communities through disaster response grants. The Disaster Response Fund can accept cash contributions and District Designated Funds (DDF).
  • Support local initiatives. As we learn about local response efforts that are being led by clubs and districts, Rotary raises awareness about how to support them. People can then support these projects by working directly with Rotary members in the region. If you want us to publicize information about local response efforts, write to relief@rotary.org.
The Weatherford Club placed flags around the square for Presidents Day. Great job, Rotarians. 
 
Bill Baker in charge of flag duty for our club. If you're interested in participating, watch for upcoming announcements for our next flag duty day. 
 
This past Friday morning, our Rotary Club sponsored the Weatherford Chamber of Commerce‚Äôs monthly breakfast, Breakfast Before Business or BB4B. Our club was able to inform local business leaders about Rotary and its core values, as well as advertise for the Pancake Supper on Feb. 28. Great work!
