Welcome to 
Stone Oak Rotary Club

 

We are a small, vibrant, and diverse club.  Our membership is an even mix of men and women, ranging in age from late 20’s to late 70’s, from many different professional fields and backgrounds.  We have a passion for community service and networking, and we have fun doing it!  As a club, we are dedicated to helping the youth of our city by encouraging education through in-school programs, scholarships, and eradicating hunger in our schools.  We also engage in other service projects and with other clubs around San Antonio and the surrounding area to live out the Rotary message of “Service Above Self.” 

 

Our club meets at 12:00pm every Thursday at the Sonterra Country Club  in Stone Oak.  Come and visit us, enjoy a fantastic lunch, and see if you might like to join us!

 

You can also contact our Membership Chair by e-mail at this link: Miguel Segura

 

It's Autumn again, which means we have lots of community service and involvement opportunities!  Our Rotary District is sponsoring a Halloween event and you can help out, bring your friends for some fantastic fun, exemplify "Service Above Self," and represent our club too!

To:          All District 5840 Rotarians
From:     Carol Holmes, District Governor
Subject:  Information on Disaster Relief
 
I have been in constant contact with Jim Overman, our Disaster Chairperson, and it looks like, at this point, our District is in pretty good shape.  Just received an email from Carrie Campbell, Wimberley, and they have, so far, avoided flooding.
I have been asked where members can donate funds to Houston, Rockport, other locations.  These are the Districts and their contacts:

Project Cool- Fans for the Elderly

Project Summary:

A large amount of our elderly population here in San Antonio cannot afford Air Conditioning in their home.  As you can imagine, many fans are needed to help keep them cool.  The board has approved that the club will support the purchase of (50) fans, with the membership hopefully contributing (25) through donations.  The fans are $19.88 (Lasko 20" Box Fan) Walmart #551129377.  

If you would like to have Ruby charge your account for the cost of your donation, please let her know. You can also purchase the fans and bring them to the meeting and Kate, Sabrina, Ruby or another Board member will take care of it, so...if you like to shop, we got you covered. (50) Fans have were delivered on August 15, 2017!

The Stone Oak Rotary Club is serious about helping the community by directly reaching out to “at risk” children.  One of the projects the Rotary Club is most passionate about is “FLAG” (Fitness, Literacy, Attendance & Grades).
 
“FLAG” was highlighted by the Rotary International President Gary C.K. Huang during his January 2015, San Antonio visit. “FLAG is an example of what Rotary is about all about”, says Stone Oak Rotary Club’s member Margaret Porter.  Porter, along with her Rotary Club started this program in 2013 with Walzem Elementary School and it has since grown to include East Terrell Hills Elementary School.  The Rotary Club has kept up the commitment to donate to each school (14) bikes, helmets and locks (2) per grade, to both boys and girls.
 
FLAG stands for Fitness, Literacy, Attendance, and Grades. KSAT 12 covers Stone Oak Rotary's FLAG awards for 2015 at Walzem Elementary School in San Antonio, Texas.

After 25 years of hard work, Rotary and its partners are on the brink of eradicating this tenacious disease, but a strong push is needed now to root it out once and for all. It is a window of opportunity of historic proportions.

Five years since its debut, Rotary Club Central is getting a big upgrade
When we introduced Rotary Club Central in 2012, it revolutionized goal tracking and planning for clubs and districts — no more filling out paper club-planning forms or passing along boxes of historical club information every time a new leader took office. Rotary Club Central offered clubs and districts a quantifiable way to begin measuring local and global impact, specifically membership initiatives, service activities, and Rotary Foundation giving. But as with any technological advancement, in a few short years, Rotary Club Central began to show its age, and Rotarians took notice. They...
