June's events and activities.
 
West U Rotary Happenings for the week of June 5, 2016 ….
 
Well, we made it! Whew!! We go 19 years with no rain out and for a while it looked like we were going 0 for 2 this year. As recently as this morning, we had a 50% - 60% chance of rain this afternoon. Many of us fully expected to shut the tournament down early but that was not the case. We were able to complete the golf tournament with no rain at all. In fact, it was a “perfect” June day in Houston – hot and humid but cloudy. By all accounts, our 20th annual golf tournament was deemed a success. The team consisting of 3 Rice graduates and a retired pro golfer took home 1st place by 1 stroke.
 
Thanks to Bob Geary, Geoff Lanceley, Kandy Glover and everyone who sponsored, volunteered and played!! Thank you for your support! The final numbers are not in yet but we had one of the most successful tournaments in our tournament history – the proceeds benefitting the Emergency Aid Coalition and West U Rotary Club Foundation.  
 
This week is the 2nd half of our RYE presentations. Maciej Aniukiewicz – our exchange student from Poland will present his year in Houston. Most of you have gotten to know Maciej over this past year as Maciej has been very involved with our club. I know you are in for a very entertaining presentation. So, come on out and hear what will be a fun filled presentation. Maciej is in town for a few more weeks so call him and invite him to play tennis, work out, have a burger, catch a movie or anything else you have in mind.  
  
Where’s Carol? Carol had a great time in Seoul and Japan and will be in route home very soon. I am sure she will have lots of amazing stories to share about the International Convention. Remember, the 2017 Rotary International Convention will be in Atlanta. Several of the club members have already signed up. So sign up and let’s make it a well- represented event.
 
We have a special request from the flag team. They are seeking egg cartons and old (preferably clean) socks. Why would the flag team be asking for egg cartons and old socks? Well … I think it has something to do with putting Humpty Dumpty back together again but I am not sure. If you come out to one of the next few flag repairs you will see why. Please bring your socks and / or egg cartons to the one of the next few meetings.  
For June, we still have several events coming up:
  • June 11th – Books for the World book Sorting – 10 AM in Pasadena
  • June 14th – Club Board meeting at The Merrill House – 7 AM
  • June 17thDistrict Governor Elect Eric Liu’s Installation Banquet – Hilton of the Americas. We have several members and spouses attending.
  • June 28th – West U Rotary 2016 – 2017 Officer Installation – Maggianos. Come on out! Bring your spouse, significant other or family for this special evening.
And don’t forget – our annual 4th of July Celebration will be happening on … well … the 4th of July. Come help decorate our float, play a kazoo in the marching band or help with the picnic. Regardless, please come out and support our annual event that supports the Challenger League.
Did everyone figure out the plates from last week? The answers to last week and this week’s selections are provided below.
This week:
  • IXFE (in honor of our golf tournament) – Nine Iron
  • IDH82BU – I’d Hate to be You
  • TI3VOM (one of my favorite phrases in traffic) – Move It (in your rear view mirror)
Something to ponder:
What do you throw away the outside and cook the inside, then eat the outside and throw away the inside?
 
Have a great week. Peace!
