Rachael Watson thanks everyone who has volunteered so far to assist the club with their efforts to help the PCCOA Meals on Wheels Program. As of September 1st, out club will be taking over a Thursday route instead of doing it on Wednesdays. This route will be our permanent route as was set before COVID.  
 
"I encourage all of you to sign up for a Thursday," she explained. "If everyone Rotarian of the Club volunteered once, maybe twice, no one member has to carry the load. Thanks for stepping up and helping those in needed." 
 
Here is the sign-up email for Meals on Wheels:  Rotary Club of Weatherford: Meals On Wheels (signupgenius.com)

The Rotary Club of Duvall, Washington, celebrated Valentine’s Day by hanging 133 double-sided hearts from light poles along a mile-long stretch of Main Street, where they loomed large from late January through early March. Bearing messages sponsored by residents and businesses at a cost of $50 each, the signs raised about $13,500 for food pantries and other organizations serving youth, seniors, and the needy in the community northeast of Seattle. The club was inspired by a long-running fundraiser of the Rotary Club of Loveland Thompson Valley, Colorado, whose sign subscriptions routinely sell out within hours.

Since 2009 the Rotary Club of Barquisimeto-Nueva Segovia has overseen more than 350 surgeries to correct congenital craniofacial deformities in children. In late April the club, based in the capital of Lara state, administered nine cleft lip and palate surgeries. Patients and their mothers are interviewed by club members who are specialists in children’s maxillofacial surgery. Proceeds from the club’s golf tournament fund the surgeries and follow-up care, which costs about $150 per patient. “Children with these malformations generally require several surgeries, and our club guarantees them all,” says Rafael Cárdenas, a club member. “Our goal is to change lives permanently.”

It was a full room as the Rotary Club of Weatherford awarded 10 Jim Bozell Community Service Scholarship to local students at their July 19 meeting.
 
"These scholarships were based on community service and written essays about completed service and what it meant to them [the recipients],” Director of Vocational Services Services Mary Helen McDow explained.  “Not only did these students go above and beyond in volunteer hours, but they will continue to volunteer in their community no matter where their education takes them.”
 
Rotary Club of Weatherford raises scholarship money each year at their annual pancake supper.  The 2022  Rotary Club of Weatherford Jim Bozell Community Service Scholarship recipients are as follows: 
 

· Madison Hand Peaster High School

· Mathew Bednarz Weatherford High School

· Keegan O'Connor Weatherford High School

· Dakota Thomas Weatherford High School

· Hailey Toten Weatherford High School

President Paul Gray was excited to move the club meeting location to a more centralized location. The club is looking forward to meeting in the Strain Room in the foreseeable future.
