Packing Meals for Our Neighbors In Need

Impact of  this service project: The group packed 510 boxes of food which will provide 5,994 meals for our neighbors in need.
Member Spotlight - Scott Thomas
February Member Spotlight is Scott Thomas. South Austin Rotary is all about service, community and family! Meet Scott Thomas: I am from Lockhart, TX. I have been in Austin TX off and on since 2002. I worked for a short time in Fredericksburg TX at my uncle’s Vineyard. I decided I wanted to go to college. I graduated from TX State in 2013 with a bachelor's degree in management.
Upcoming Service Projects

·         We will be joining the Southwest Club collecting Styrofoam and working at their booth.  They take clean food/drink containers, egg cartons, packing foam, ice chests, colors and print on them is OK.  Break it down if possible.  No packing peanuts, foam rubber or shiny foam sheets used for packing.  Shirley will collect for our club or you can take it to their booth at the Farmers Market at Tony Berger Center the 1st Saturday of the month.  Also if you can work a shift  8:30-11:00 or 11-1:30 please sign up when Jenny sends you the sign-up sheet and be sure to wear a Rotary t-shirt if you have one.

·         Jim announced that we are going to build a Gaga ball pit for and with the Girl Scout troop at Sunset Valley Elementary as one of our DAP grant projects.
