Rotary Family is a Very Special Kind of Family
 

Dr. Bob Cassidy from the Humble Club and his wife Karen left Houston to celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary on the morning of August 27. 


They were returning to where they began their lives together in 1967 in Germany where Bob was stationed. The Cassidys knew the Hurricane was on their doorstep but were reassured by the fact the water level on the lake behind their house actually receded from the day before in spite of the constant rain. They thought they were safe.

They never counted on Conroe opening the dam as they were reassured after 1994 the authorities would never do it again ( Politicians). On Thursday the 31st they saw on CNN International that Kingwood had flooded. They didn't have any idea what to do. They were uncertain of the time line since cell communication was sporadic, none for days at a time, but they eventually received a call from Linda and Mike Price (fellow Rotarian)who knew where they were

 On their own volition the Prices and their daughter Kala, with friends, went to the Cassidy's home the first day the 48  inches of floodwater had receded  and began clearing out the mess, found their flood insurance documents and contacted the insurance company as well as FEMA. They also hired a contractor and began the demolition process while the Cassidys were floating down the Rhine not knowing what was going on. 

They were resigned to let it sit till they returned. When they returned they were told by neighbors they had "Angel" friends that were at their house working before anyone else in the neighborhood. They said there was an army of people helping. 

They were also offered a fellow Rotarian's home when they returned. They were truly blessed to have such wonderful friends and will never be able to repay them for what they did completely on their own.  Incidentally, Karen's dad's name was "HARVEY".

““Sgt. Hog’s D5890 Mail Call” Harvey’s Hell “Houston Strong” This edition of our newsletter is dedicated to Rotary District 5890, our Rotarians, Houston, Houstonians and our surrounding communities for showing unparalleled strength, courage, unity, dignity and sheer willpower in overcoming the devastation that was Hurricane Harvey. In next month’s issue, we will return to our normal district newsletter bringing you up to speed on district news and rotary happenings. As I’ve made my way back on to the Official visit trail, the constant I’ve seen in all our clubs is the tenacity with which we have come to the aid of all of those in need. Whether it’s mucking out individual homes or helping to rebuild entire schools, you have your “Boots on the Ground” and your hands in the mud working to rebuild. The rebuilding process will take years. And it’s not only structures that need rebuilding. It’s lives too. Our district is prepared for this challenge. We have the perfect Rotarians in place to take on this challenge and carry this process through. Beginning with our Disaster Relief Chair Wayne Beaumier and his Disaster Aid USA Team, we immediately began relief efforts. And we continue those relief efforts today. But Wayne and his team have 
The Rotary Club of Humble and the Cartagena de Indias Rotary Club are conducting a Global Grant for the benefit of the Cartagena Food Bank.
 
Global Grant 153319 is producing fruits. One of the goals of this GG is to train several families in low-income neighborhoods there in Cartagena to plant vegetables in their back yards. A first purpose was to produce food for the family and the second was supplemented to teach them how to market the crop. These photos are from the second crop in a local Farmers Market.
 
Photos are included of their activities. These photos are from the second crop in a local Farmers Market. The market was held October 8th at the "Rotary House" which is the meeting place for another Rotary Club at the town of Turbaco, nearby Cartagena.

At the Rotary Multi District Training Institute (MDTI) held in Austin on August 11-12, 2017, Dr. Isis Mejias was presented with the Rotary Alumni of the Year Award by former Rotary International Director and Treasurer Andy Smallwood as well as former R.I. Director Don Mebas. The MDTI program consists of Rotary Districts in Texas and Oklahoma.
 
Isis was born in Venezuela and moved to Houston with her family after completing high school. She earned a degree in Chemical Engineering from the University of Houston. Later, while working in the private sector, she visited Kenya as a volunteer with Engineers Without Borders (EWB). In Kenya, her EWB team discovered that the only hospital in the community of Maseno did not have running water.
 
 
A report from Bill Davis of the Rotary Club of Humble.
 
I am delighted to report that two young ladies who I had the privilege of inviting to the family of Rotary have been invited by Rotary International President Ian Riseley to speak at the General Session of the Annual Convention of Rotary to be held in Toronto next June. It is anticipated that the session will be attended by 20,000.
Both ladies are former Rotary Global scholars.
