Welcome
 

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, suggest a project or 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 - Early Act First Knight

 * 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

 * Helping a local center for disadvantaged youths with repairs and improvements

 * 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 Monday at noon at Flores Mexican Restaurant, two miles or so east of Dripping Springs on Highway 290..  We conduct club business, have social time for the members and have a wide variety of speakers discussing issues that impact our community, our country, or internationally.

We host several social events as well as fund raising events throughout the year.  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.

Stop by, you don't need a reservation, or drop us a note and we will answer any questions about our club.

Convention: Southern hospitality
The Atlanta Host Organization Committee is offering some good old-fashioned Southern hospitality at the Rotary International Convention from 10 to 14 June. It has planned a wide range of activities featuring everything from good food and music to inspiring tours of local landmarks. If it’s your first convention, these events are chances to meet fellow Rotarians from around the world, and if you’re an experienced convention goer, you can catch up with old friends. Hall of Fame baseball player Hank Aaron will host Rotarians for a “Strike Out Polio” night at the new SunTrust Park, where you’ll...
Member spotlight: The power of the press
When Teguest Yilma helped found the Rotary Club of Addis Ababa Entoto in 2002, she thought polio had already been eradicated from most of the world. But while Ethiopia had been free of the disease, Yilma was shocked to learn that new cases had started cropping up in surrounding countries such as Somalia. “I was thinking, it’s not possible, we can’t be free if the countries around us are not free,” she says. Yilma, the managing editor of Capital, Ethiopia’s largest English weekly newspaper, has brought a journalist’s skills to the fight against polio. She became vice chair of the Ethiopia...
Member interview: Writer sheds light on FDR’s right-hand woman
Battling breast cancer in 2000, Kathryn Smith found comfort pursuing her lifelong interest in Franklin D. Roosevelt. The more she read, the more intrigued she became with the 32nd U.S. president’s private secretary, Marguerite Alice “Missy” LeHand. “I thought, what a fascinating life she had because she was by his side through the polio crisis, establishing the polio rehabilitation center in Warm Springs and then after his return to politics,” she says. Smith, a past president of the Rotary Club of Greater Anderson, S.C., and a longtime newspaper journalist, turned that curiosity into a book...
The Rotarian Conversation with Ban Ki-moon
One of United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon’s earliest memories is of fleeing with his family into the mountains during the Korean War, his village burning behind him. His father and grandfather had to forage for food in the woods; his mother gave birth to his siblings away from anything remotely resembling a health facility. “I have known hunger,” he says. “I have known war, and I have known what it means to be forced to flee conflict.” The soldiers who came to their rescue were flying the blue flag of the United Nations. The UN provided them with food and their schools with books....
Culture: Life in the bike lane
Like a lot of us, I spent much of my childhood riding bikes, but fell out of the habit for a while. Forty years. Then my wife and I moved to New York, where cyclists risk their necks in a daily Thunderdome of cabs, police cars, firetrucks, double-decker buses, messengers on motorbikes, and delivery trucks backing around corners at 20 miles an hour. Not for me! At least not until my 50th birthday, when my metabolic furnace flamed out. Calories started going directly from beer bottle to beer belly. It was time to start exercising. Either that or give up Samuel Adams, and I couldn’t do that to...
