Oh My! What was found!!
Due to several reasons (Harvey Damage, leaking un-repaired roof and general yucky-ness) the club has moved to a new storage facility. While moving the materials in the storage unit, several gems have been uncovered from the material stored there. I will be presenting them for your enjoyment over a period of time.
This picture from the Rockport Pilot dated Saturday, January 22, 1994 was too good to pass up. Thanks Ruth for representing us well and continuing to be an active member.
A change from the discoveries - I found old club bulletins. They were named "The Beacon" and had a logo of a lighthouse. I cleaned up the logo and our newsletter/bulletin has a new name and masthead.
This will be the new masthead.
Rockport Film Festival
The mission of the Rockport Film Festival has always been to bring the best of independent cinema to the Texas Coast. This year, the Festival will take place November 1-4, at the Aransas County Airport. We are excited for our 12th year, and we need strong supporters, like you, to make it happen.
While Rockport is still reeling from the impact of Harvey, the Film Festival aims to strengthen the economy by attracting cultural tourists to town. The Festival consistently has 30-35% of its attendees come from over 70 miles away, and the year after Harvey was no different. In 2018, we aim to increase that number by expanding the festival by one day and three feature films.
Will you consider being a sponsor of the 12th Rockport Film Festival? Your generous contribution will help us turn the airport hangar into a theater that can seat 250+ people, who will experience both the greatness of film and the charm of Rockport. You will be recognized as a sponsor at the theater, in digital advertising and social media, and in the Festival program.
Please review the sponsorship benefits grid included here and return the response form by October 5. Thank you for your support.

National Awards Services Inc.
Our 1.2 million-member organization started with the vision of one man—Paul P. Harris. The Chicago attorney formed one of the world’s first service organizations, the Rotary Club of Chicago, on 23 February 1905 as a place where professionals with diverse backgrounds could exchange ideas and form meaningful, lifelong friendships. Rotary’s name came from the group’s early practice of rotating meetings among the offices of each member.

You are invited to visit us at an upcoming meeting.
