DG Eric Liu Praises West U Rotary
It is good to be us. A leading club in the District, and our District a leader in the world! We did a wonderful job of being welcoming and respectful to DG Eric and wife Sandra. We showed off a little by inducting two new members, Margarita Hernandez and Frank Eggleston. We gave out funds to Small Steps Nurturing Center for one student to go to pre-school for a year, and we gave the District Grant funds to Disaster Aid for a water filter in the Philippines. We presented our 100th Anniversary of The Rotary Foundation check for $10,000 to Eric. We streamed his presentation LIVE.
We had many guests from foreign countries and some local visitors expressed a desire to join our fantastic club. Yes, it is good to be us.
Thank yous go out to Honey Leveen, Frank Parrilla, David Redford and Roger Martin for sponsoring and mentoring our new members. Thank you to Chad Spencer, for finding matching funds for our Small Steps donation, turning our $5K into $10K. Thank you to Terry LeFebvre for hosting the Bolivian PDG Javier as he and his wife on numerous occasions when they came to Houston for cancer treatment.
Thank you to the Membership Committee, who are attacking the cause of growing membership with gusto. Visitors seemed absolutely delighted to be at our meeting on Thursday. Great job!
