ROTARY CLUB OF TEXAS CITY MEETINGS SUSPENDED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE

In light of the ongoing concerns related to the COVID-19 virus, the Board of Directors and I have decided that we will suspend our weekly meetings until further notice.. 

To paraphrase one of our Past Rotary Presidents:   Our club has a history of facing every adverse situation with courage and fortitude,

and I truly believe the wisest plan for now is for us to do our part to prevent the rapid spread of the virus until the transmission is slowed and/or resolved. 

While cancelling our meetings – even for a short time – is painful to do, I believe it is wise, and we will come back stronger when the coast is clear!! 

Judy Slocumb, President, Rotary Club of Texas City

10th Annual Mardi Gras Mainland Gala
The Rotary Club of Texas City held their major fundraiser on February 8.  It was a huge success, raising over $75,000.00.  It involved three of the Galveston County Rotary Clubs as well.  Those clubs are invited to nominate a King and Queen nominee from their club to participate in the crowning of a Mardi Gras King and Queen.  In return for their participation our club donates $500 to a “Cause” of their choice.  Their clubs provide an auction item with a $100 value.  If their King and/or Queen nominee is crowned then their club receives an additional $500 for their cause.  Below are those clubs nominees and their causes. 
 
Friendswood:  Jim and Lucy Woltz nominees and the Gary Sinise Foundation is their cause
League City:  Kevin Smith and Julia Gallagher nominees and the 4-Way Test Competition for Students is their cause
Mainland:  Joe Carothers and Lori Carnes nominees and Habitat for Horses is their cause
Texas City:  PDG Emken Linton and Kitty Potter nominees and their cause Shriner’s Burn Institute
 
Congratulations to the King Kevin Smith from the League City Rotary Club and
Queen Lori Carnes from the Mainland Rotary Club.
