Sugar Land Rotary donates $9000 to Children of the Andes. Children of the Andes is an educational project initiated in 1995 by the Rotary Club Quito Valle Interoceanico based in Quito, Ecuador. The aim is to support communities with low resources through educational projects for children, youth and adults.

Sugar Land Rotary was honored to be able to donate $5000 each to the Fort Bend YMCA for their Summer Camp Program in the Four Corners Neighborhood of Fort Bend County AND to the Literacy Council of Fort Bend to aid in funding their GED program which teaches students what they need to know to get their GEDs to improve both their lives and the communities around them.
Sugar Land Rotary Club honored Fireman Johnathan Vance and Police Officer Tuan-Huy Tran as Fireman and Police Officer of the Year for the City of Sugar Land. We had GREAT attendance and enjoyed hearing from both gentleman. In addition to our honorees we also had an opportunity to ask questions of Police Chief Doug Brinkley and Fire Chief Juan Adame of the City of Sugar Land. It was a great question and answer session where I think everyone learned a little more about the expectations of both departments for their personnel.
CONGRATULATIONS OFFICER TRAN AND FIREMAN VANCE!
We love our RYLA kids! Students from Clements HS enjoyed a weekend of leadership training and fun. As Rotarians,
we provided scholarships and rides back and forth, and as you can see, the kids loved it!
Over 100 people attended the 18th Annual Sugar Land Rotary Veteran's Day Luncheon. We were awed by the sounds of Mr. Russ Clark, Elkins Chorale Director, with the National Anthem and God Bless America! Bush High School won the Buster Court Award (again)! Dr. Thomas Parr, our guest speaker, thanked us for allowing him to be a Veteran for all that he gained from his experiences in the Armed Forces. Mark your calendar for next year's event now as you won't want to miss it!
