2020 is certainly a year we will all remember, but not as a year that we had to cancel our Annual Fundraising Golf Tournament.  
 
Please join us June 22, 2020, with an 8:00 am start for the 25th West U Rotary Golf Tournament.  This year, our recipient is Second Servings, Houston, a very unique non-profit organization that "rescues" unwanted food and redistributes to agencies that assist the needy.  Learn more https://secondservingshouston.org/

On Sunday, May 17, 2020, West U residents celebrated all graduating high school students who are residents of West U.  All schools, Bellaire, Lamar, St. John's, Episcopal, St. Agnes, Strake Jesuit, etc.  The West U Rotary Club lined University Blvd. and Edloe St. with US and Texas flags and the neighborhood cheered them on.
 
Congratulations from West U Rotary Club to ALL students, and we wish you the very best for your future. 
 
Thank you to all who put in a few dollars as a donation to our club, and the proceeds will go to the Lamar FFA program whose on-line auction was not as robust as a live auction would have been.  The FFA program is a scholarship to help with college expenses.

Dear Friends,
 
I hope everyone is staying healthy and safe. Second Servings has been working long hours, doubling our normal food volume in March and April. We continue to rescue surplus food from our regular daily donors (i.e., retailers, distributors, and manufacturers), in addition to the many hotels, business cafeterias, schools, restaurants, and others whose businesses have been severely interrupted by the COVID-19 crisis.

Houston needs our help! Please read this email fully.
 
As we all know, small businesses are the backbone of our economy and employ about 50% of workers in the US. Small businesses are hurting and we need to help in any way we can. In an effort to support small business owners, my friend Mark Enis, from the Houston Rotary Club, and I, from the West U Rotary Club, want to do something to help small business owners in Houston and surrounding areas during this unprecedented time.

Another launch successfully wrapping up!  Thank you, everyone, who participated and especially those that did double, and even triple duty!  I think there were some bored, or restless, Rotarians because the launch was done by Saturday afternoon, and that may be a first.  Love it!
 
We rolled out a new e-commerce data platform, which had quite a number of hiccups, but the programmers were very quick to respond and we learned what worked and didn't.  More than 400 payments were made between May 1 - 30th, generating over $40,000 in fundraising through subscriptions.  These transactions would have had to be entered manually, so even with the hiccups, we are very happy with our transition.  
 
Our administrative team stayed close by to address concerns with our subscribers and kept up through the weekend.  Aside from the few missed flags (which happens anyway), most issues were completed by Sunday.
 
We are well prepared, but expect July 4th to be much smoother!
 
Thank you again, everyone!
