FFA students announced the Humble ISD Livestock Auction will be held on Feb 8-11at  our meeting this past week.. Present from left to Right are Aubrey Thompson, Todd Noite, Rotary President Alan Derby, Zachary Boggs, Caitlyn Anderson, Madison Emmert, Cheyenne Jumper and Olivia Blair.
The FFA Mission is as follows.
 
FFA makes a positive difference through agricultural education in the lives of students by developing their potential for premier leadership, personal growth and career success
 
Participants invest a significant amount of time and money raising animals for the Auction. The School Sponsor related that one of the participants lost her swine due to pneumonia in the past few days. A very disappointing experience .after spending lots of time and  love in raising the animal.
 
Humble Rotary participates in the auction by purchasing several animals and then donating the processed meat to several non-profits. We have provided the annual meat needs of FamilyTime Crisis and Counseling Service Center the past several years
Charolette Rekers, our Youth Exchange Student from the Netherlands presented an excellent program about the Netherlands. She was asked numerous questions and one question was "what are significant changes being in US?". Her response was the ability to travel, she is used to being able to travel by bike. Does not work here.
Her English is excellent and her presentation was excellent. Received a standing ovation. Presentation was augmented by a slide show.

It’s a new year, and here’s something you can resolve to do for your club and for Rotary in 2017.
Think about the last time someone gave you a “word-of-mouth referral” that influenced your decision to do something. Maybe a friend shared a new favorite restaurant over Facebook, or your neighbour recommended a plumber. Or maybe it was that friendly suggestion to come along to a Rotary club meeting that got you involved in Rotary in the first place. Regardless, you probably acted on the referral, in part, because it came from someone you trust!
If you’re passionate about Rotary like I am, I encourage you this year to become an ambassador for your own club — and more importantly for Rotary — by using your “word-of-mouth refNNew erral” power. Here are a few things you can do:
  1.  
Pam McNair and Kathy Lemman presenting a check to Mission NE for $7,000!
 
Rotary International utilizes the Rose Bowl Parade to tell the world about Rotary. This years entry was entitle 'Doing Good Thins In the World". The float is assembled by Rotarians from across the world who donate their time and expenses. Clubs across the world donate to help offset expenses of construction.
 
Enjoy
 
President’s message January 2017
 
DEAR FELLOW ROTARIANS,
 
As we enter 2017, we also enter the second year of the initiative known as the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. These goals, usually referred to as the SDGs, pertain to a list of 17 areas where the people of the world can come together to address our most pressing economic, political, and social challenges. It is a hugely ambitious list, and it has to be. The ultimate aim of these goals is nothing less than peace, prosperity, security, and equality for all of humanity. How do you even begin to tackle such a project? At Rotary, our answer is simple: one step at a time. These goals are nothing new for Rotary: They’re already reflected in our areas of focus. We also understand that all of these 17 goals, just like our six areas of focus, are interrelated. You can’t have good health without clean water. You can’t have clean water without good sanitation. Good sanitation in turn helps keep children in school, which improves education, which improves economic prosperity and health. When you are talking about the advancement of an entire planet, no one indicator, no one goal, no one country, exists in isolation. To make real and lasting progress, we must all move forward together. The idea of sustainability is key to the SDGs – and to our service in Rotary. Sustainability simply means making progress that will endure. It means not just digging a well, but being sure that a community can maintain it. It means not just running a health camp for a week, but training local health workers. It means empowering families and communities to take charge of their own futures by giving them the tools they need to succeed.

Convention: City of peace
Though Atlanta has seen its share of violence and inequity over time, today it brims with reminders that there is another way. Get inspired while you’re visiting for the 2017 Rotary International Convention from 10 to 14 June. Take a short walk from the convention center to the Center for Civil and Human Rights. There, you can see the handwritten notes, speeches, and sermons of civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr., experience an interactive 1960s-era lunch counter “sit-in,” and learn more about persecuted groups all over the world. A streetcar will take you to the Martin Luther King Jr...

Arch Klumph’s hometown raises over $2 million through centennial celebration
Rotary members in Cleveland, Ohio, USA, celebrated 100 years of The Rotary Foundation on 23 October with a banquet and a concert by The Cleveland Orchestra that have so far raised more than $2.1 million for the Foundation's next century of good work. Arch Klumph, a Cleveland Rotarian, planted the seed for The Rotary Foundation in 1917, with his idea of having an endowment fund dedicated to "doing good in the world." Today's District 6630 leaders thought that a concert was a fitting way to honor Klumph and mark the centennial because of Klumph's love of music. Klumph performed in several...
