It is with great sadness that I must report the PDG Floyd Boze passed away February 20th. PDG Floyd lead a great life (see bio below), and was the kindest Rotarian that I have know. Floyd was president of the Lubbock Rotary Club, became a member of Space Center Rotary Club on August 20, 1973. Floyd was elected Governor of Rotary District 589 (now 5890) in 1984. His District Conference was held in Guadalajara, Mexico. Floyd & Nancy were both Paul Harris Fellows & Floyd Boze Fellows. As of this Rotary Year, 2013-14, Floyd had 63 years of perfect attendance, having made up missed meetings of his home club in more than 20 countries outside the U. S. Please say a prayer for PDG Floyd Boze's family. Floyd was a true Rotarian, who lived the life of "Service Above Self". And now we must say good-by to one of the truly good guys. I'm sure God has already scheduled a Rotary meeting in heaven to honor the arrival of PDG Floyd Boze. I can see the banner now, "Well done thy good and faithful servant". And to no surprise, Brother Floyd will have perfect attendance into perpetuity.

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.

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.
