News About The Club
Meet member, Shirley Moyer Diepenbrock .. "After retiring, I began searching for a way to meet other professionals of integrity who enjoy doing community service when a good friend invited me to the South Austin Rotary club. I joined in January of 2022 and I'm making friends and having fun...it’s just what I was looking for!"
Last Saturday five members worked a shift at the SAFE Austin Alliance warehouse organizing donations.  Laura, Satch, Erica, Lisa and Shirley reported that it made them feel fulfilled, it was well organized and fun! February service project will be the Hungry Souls food drive, plan to join us!
 

It all started with a Wish List.  Jim McComb noticed that Mainspring Schools had two toy sheds on their Wish List last year.  He made a visit to the school and saw the very old, quite small, worn out storage sheds on their playground and said to himself, “This would make a good Rotary project!”.
