Welcome to the Rotary Club of Dripping Springs web site. We invite you to take a look around our site and to find out more about our club and about Rotary International. If, after considering what we offer you and the community, you would like to look into membership, please consider contacting us here. If you are interested in speaking for the club, please contact us here.
The Rotary Club is a service organization focusing on local and international needs. Locally, we have sponsored projects such as a multi-year character building program at a local elementary school, construction of concession and restroom facilities at the local sports park, construction of therapeutic gardens at a local assisted living facility, construction of picnic area improvements for the Dripping Springs Chamber of Commerce, supporting the local food bank, and helping a local center for disadvantaged youths with repairs and improvements. We also put on an annual tribute to veterans on Veteran's Day. To pay for all of this we raise funds through dues, and various fund raisers.
We meet at Flores Mexican Restaurant two miles or so east of Dripping Springs on 290, Mondays at noon. We conduct club business, have some social time for the members and have a variety of speakers about local and broader issues of interest. We occasionally have a social event, including our annual Officer Induction Dinner and a Christmas Party. All of our activities are open; we have no secrets and we are proud of who we are. We enjoy our Rotary membership and seek to support our community and the greater good through service. After all, the motto of Rotary is "service above self," and we seek to embody that.
If these types of activities appeal to you, then we invite you to consider applying for membership in The Dripping Springs Rotary Club. As Hays County enters into an exciting time of unparalleled growth the opportunities and need for our services are expanding. We hope to continue growing our club to meet the challenge.
Spring Family Fun Fest
On May 3 we hosted our first annual Family Fun Fest. We provided family friendly activities, including a magic show (Thank you John Magic!), live music (Thank you Tommy Mojica and his ukulele students!), a pet parade, inflatable Adventure Course, custom poetry, croquet, face painting, and horse shoes. We grilled free sausage wraps, chicken sandwiches, and hot dogs, and provided cold drinks for a hot day. Proceeds will be used by the Dripping Springs Rotary Club to support our many local service projects.
We want to thank our many sponsors who helped make the event a success:
