Reagan Interact Club Needs Help!

The Reagan interact Club was inactive last year due to a lack of a Faculty Advisor, so this year is a major reboot.  We have a new Faculty Advisor, and the club will be a whole new club.  In many ways, we will be starting over, so it's all hands on deck, especially at the beginning.  Our Interact Advisor, Henry Alvarez, will be taking lead on the Interact Club, but we may need 2-3 members who are willing to be "on-call" to help market the club to the students and get them started.  The good news is that we have the full support of the Principal in getting it going!
Interact will be doing 2 projects during the school year: One will be School/Community Focused, and the other will be focused on International Understanding.  The students will be doing ALL the heavy lifting, but we need to get them off the ground for them to become successful.  Please contact Henry if you are willing to help out.
Remember to Network with the other members of our club.  They can be a resource to you personally and professionally.

Since Last Week


Rotary International Mourns the Passing of our President Elect, Sam F. Owori

Below is a letter from the President of Rotary International.
Ian Riseley
President, 2017-18
T +1.847.866.3467
F +1.847.866.3390
Dear fellow Rotarians,
There has been an outpouring of heartfelt messages since President-elect Sam’s passing last week. Rotarians and members of the public have been sharing memories and recalling how Sam inspired them through his hard work as a Rotarian and as a dedicated civil servant. It is clear that his impact and legacy were felt worldwide.
There will be a service for Sam on Friday, 21 July, from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m., at St. Vincent’s Cathedral in Bedford, Texas. Friends in the area are encouraged to visit. Funeral services in Uganda are currently being planned.
Memorial contributions in honor of Sam will be directed to the Sam F. Owori Memorial to Polio. This fund has been established to honor his commitment to Rotary’s polio eradication efforts. Sam was a member of both the Africa Regional PolioPlus Committee and the International PolioPlus Committee. You can make online contributions to the fund here.
The 2017-18 nominating committee will select a new president-elect, in addition to the president-nominee, during its scheduled meeting in early August.
Thank you all for your continued support during this difficult time.
Ian Riseley
Rotary International President, 2017-18

President’s Corner

Welcome to a new year!  I would like to again thank each and every one of you who attended the Installation Banquet.  A special thank you to Chief Justice, Fourth Court of Appeals (retired), Catherine Stone for inducting our board members and officers.
Also, thank you to our Assistant District Governor Joel Azrikan for attending our event.   We hope to see a lot of him this year. 
Throughout our interactions this year, let’s remember this year’s Rotary Theme: Making a Difference.  We are going to make an effort this year to once again meet the Every Rotarian Every Year foundation goal and to plant a tree for each of us.   
This year, keep track of your service hours.  We do a lot for our community and we’d like to recognize our members for their hard work. Let’s make it a great year!
~Yolanda Delgado
SORC President 2017-18
P.S.~ I would also like to thank Dr. Dianna Carmenaty, SAPD retired officer and now professor at Our Lady of the Lake University.
