Rockport Rotary and District 5930 Disaster Relief funds have been used to provide Rockport Volunteer Fire Department's Chief Sims with a new RV. Chief Steve Sims and his friend will be joining us and we will present his check.
 
From the Go Fund Me page started by a friend:
 
      On August 24th Rockport, Texas took a direct hit from category 4 hurricane Harvey. Rockport is a sleepy coastal community of about 10,000 people and Steve Sims is the Chief of the Volunteer Fire Department. He and his men risked their lives and stayed behind to ride out 140mph winds in a metal building so they could respond as quickly as possible afterward.
      As you have seen from the national news, this was a deadly storm and the devastation in the Rockport area is akin to what an atomic blast must look like. Unfortunately Chief Sims also lost his home in the storm.  He is sleeping in the fire station for now but in the coming weeks he will need a new home.
      My name is Robert E. Jones and I grew up in that area and now call Austin home. Steve is a good friend (we just spent 9 months rebuilding my scuba boat together) and an exceptional human being. So, while he is still commanding the fire department's response and recovery efforts, I am taking on the task of raising funds to purchase him a RV/camper as a new home.
 
 
 
It will be a brown bag, bring your own lunch meeting. Dessert sharing.
