About the Scholarship.
Ross Roberts was a charter member of the club way back in the 1980's.  He passed away a few years ago.  His wife, Colleen passed away in January of 2020.  After Ross passed away, the family funded 50% of the scholarship at MSU and Wichita Falls North RC funded the remaining.  They were both huge supporters of education.
connect people to the natural environment of Texas.
They hold camps and learning classes for
children of all ages as part of their mission. 
 
Of course providing these leaning experiences for children comes at a cost. Our members want to assure these wonderful programs continue regardless of cost. The Wichita Falls North Rotary Club has made a donation of $2000 that will be matched by "Texoma Gives" providing $4000 that River Bend Nature Center can use to assure no child is turned away due to lack of funds for teaching programs"

Food Pantry serving food insecure
children at Scotland Park Elementary School
 
Hungry children don't learn. That is why local schools provide breakfast and lunch to qualifying children. However, many of the kids do not have food when the get home. The Rotary Club of Wichita Falls North is providing food to stock a school pantry so that teachers and counselors can give these children food to take with them. We love our children at our adopted school and seek to support their needs. 
 
This is just one of several community service projects our members do. To find out more, be our guest 7 am Friday mornings at the Vantage Point Condo Meeting Room, 2100 Sante Fe in Wichita Falls, TX.
Wichita Falls North Rotary Club and our partners
from the adopted Sheppard AFB Squadron
and the Rider HS Soccer team completed
its Labor Day Flag Launch this week.
 
We put up and took down 665 flags at residential homes in the subdivisions areas of Fountain Park, Edgemere, Quail Creek, Willow Bend  and Sikes Estates.  Each of members and partners devoted 2 hours putting up the flags in the morning to 2 hours in the evening taking them down.
Clubs first in-person meeting since start
of pandemic is welcomed carefully as Troy Secord
provides some excellent virtual meet-up information.
 
Next week's meeting will be held live and in living color at the Vantage Point Condomenia.  But we are going to try and do a virtual meeting as well.  Remember, we have to wear mask.  There is no food service, but it is OK to bring coffee and perhaps a breakfast from McDonald's or elsewhere. Virtual meeting link will be provided later next week.
Rotary Club of Wichita Falls North along with District 5790
assists in $161,000 Grant with focus on COVID-19 relief efforts
in North Central Texas, including the greater Wichita Falls area
 
Rotarians are People of Action and this was on fine display recently when they were asked to support Covid-19 related needs in their community.  Rotarians in District 5790 (North Central TX) put out the call to Club members and friends and raised $65,000 in just ten days.  Contributions came from Rotarians and clubs throughout North Central Texas as well as District 5870 in the Austin area.  Our global partner, District 9810 in Australia, remembered our contribution to their wildfire relief fund and donated to our effort as well!  Our $65,000 raised was matched by the Rotary International Foundation, becoming $161,000 to benefit healthcare and hunger in our communities!
Local hospitals will receive financial support, funds will be used to purchase personal protective equipment, testing kits, thermometers, hazmat suits, and other consumable medical goods.
