Rotary Club of Space Center 50th Anniversary Celebration
Since 1964, the Rotary Club of Space Center has been serving the Clear Lake area with dedicated community service and engaged volunteerism. On Wednesday, August 6 the club celebrated its 50th anniversary with a cocktail dinner and reception at Space Center Houston. To mark the occasion, Council Member Martin presented a certificate of recognition on behalf of the City of Houston honoring the club's service over the past half century. The event also featured memorabilia and video presentations celebrating the history of the chapter, and Rotarians and guests shared stories from the club's past activities.


Council Member Martin congratulates the Rotary Club of Space Center on the big milestone and thanks all involved with the organization over the past 50 years for their service to the community. He also thanks Scott Rainey, President of the Rotary Club of Space Center, for the invitation to attend the event.

Space Center Rotary's EarlyAct FirstKnight program has been a tremendous success.  Teaching chivalry and building champions -- that's what the program is accomplishing at Whitcomb Elementary School.  The program teaches children how to be role models and hold high standards for character. You haven't experienced Rotary, until you hear 700 young students recite Rotary's 4-Way Test "every morning".  Organizers hope the examples will rub off on other kids.  It was the last day of school for students at Clear Creek ISD, and some of them went home with proud parents and new titles for the summer.  Click on Houston's ABC Channel 13 News Reports

On Dec 10-11, District 5890 was honored to have Rotary International General Secretary John Hewko take time from his busy schedule to come speak at our Dec 10 District Foundation Dinner, which was well attended.  The next morning, Chief of Staff Jon McKinnie had organized an executive tour of NASA's Johnson Space Center for Hewko and several members of our District leadership.   Some of the highlights of the tour included observing current Mission Control activities, walk through the Apollo Mission Control (remember Tom Hank's movie, Apollo 13), walk through astronaut training area (space station, space shuttle cockpit, next generation rover) and Russian Soyuz.  For more details & photos, click on this story heading.

Space Center Rotary Club has a small group of golf enthusiasts who want more members!  We golf almost every Thursday (depending on weather and interest) at local public courses.  All the courses offer a reduced rate for seniors – if you fit in that category.  Non-senior rates are very reasonable.   Tee times are usually early in the morning.
