Rotary Club of East Montgomery County (RCEMC) heard from Mike Flinn at their October 27, 2020 meeting. Mr. Flinn is the General Manager of Big Rivers Waterpark and Adventures located in New Caney. He gave details of the Park’s upcoming events and how they did during the summer with a pandemic. Big Rivers is a supporter of Rotary’s work and has played an active role in the community. As a token of appreciation, an elementary school book “Room on the Broom” will be donated to Timber Lakes Elementary in Mr. Flinn’s honor.

The Rotary Club of East Montgomery County (RCEMC) has resumed many of its activities. Over the past three weeks, members have enjoyed hearing from some dynamic speakers and started planning ways to help within the community and the world. Speakers Kevin Gainer of Performance Foot Orthotics;  Nutritionist Dr. Charles Campbell; and Past District Governor, current rotary member, and now author Dr. Rose Austin informed RCEMC members. The Club also sent 750 cotton t-shirts to be shipped to a Rotary Club in Nicaragua where they will be made into baby diapers, and will be gearing up for an underwear drive.

 

Rotary 5910 District Governor Becky Mason made an official visit to the Rotary Club of East Montgomery County (RCEMC) at their weekly meeting on September 22. While the official visit was held virtually, RCEMC members shared the Club’s activities and accomplishments over the past year and District Governor Mason provided direction for the club during these unusual times. 

In May 2020, despite a pandemic shutting down schools, the Rotary Club of EMC awarded ten area seniors $1,000 each to further their education. 
Rotarians donate clothes to New Horizons. The New Horizons is located in New Caney and provides training and employment opportunities to help individuals with disabilities live as independently as possible, operates a resale shop six days a week, provides shredding services and disposable shop rags, and sells home-grown herbal products.
 
 

In honor of Black History Month, the Rotary Club of East Montgomery County (EMC) was privileged to have Cpt. Paul J. Matthews, Buffalo Soldier Museum Curator, present to the Club at their weekly luncheon.  Cpt. Matthews has been researching military history and collecting military artifacts and memorabilia for over 30 years prior to his founding of the Buffalo Soldiers National Museum. This is the only museum in the United States that chronicles the entire African American military experience from the Revolutionary War to the Persian Gulf War. 

Interact Club students from New Caney, Porter, and Infinity High Schools were the guest speakers at the weekly Rotary Club of EMC. These students attended the annual Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA) camp on January 10-12 and spoke about their experiences. The Rotary District 5910 camp is held at the Pineywoods Baptist Encampment in Woodlake, TX.  
 
RYLA is a leadership program coordinated by Rotary Clubs around the globe. Each year, thousands of young people participate in this program. Young people ages 13–30 are sponsored by Rotary Clubs to attend the event run by the club's district committee.
