GFWC db Harbor City Juniorettes help clean-up

On September 15, members of the GFWC db Harbor City Juniorettes took part in GFWC’s Environment Community Service Program by participating in a cleanup and a Save The Planet- National Recycle Day scavenger hunt at Aransas Child Care Center.

AP Rotary Club at “Leading the Way”

On the evening of September 15, 2021 the Chamber of Commerce of Aransas Pass held “Leading The Way”, a community empowerment and unity event. It was an evening of conversation and cocktails and a means to contribute input on community enrichment as well as learn how one can be a part of the process. Civic and Community organizations were invited to man a booth at the event in an opportunity to educate the community and citizens of Aransas Pass on their organization’s purpose in the community. Our Club felt it would be an opportune event to answer the question “What is Rotary?’ and to disseminate information regarding what Rotary does Internationally and what Rotary does in and for Aransas Pass. Our booth provided a handout outlining how we support our largest project, education. Meg, Karen and Juli offered explanations and answered questions related to our Club and to Rotary International. Many visitors expressed an interest in Rotary and were invited to come to one of our meetings
