Congratulations to the “ROW-TARIANS” of the Woodlands Rotary Club!
 
 
On Saturday, September 24, 2016 the Rotary Club of the Woodlands fielded a team to raise funds for the Montgomery County YMCA at the annual YMCA Dragon Boat Team Challenge on Lake Woodlands. In addition to 35 “ROW-tarians” the club was joined by 7 of their Rotaract students from the Lone Star College Montgomery chapter for a fun day of team-building games and racing in the Dragon Boat. Together they “Rowed for Cause” and brought home to the club the coveted Sportsmanship Dragon Trophy (see orange stuffed dragon, pictured). Another great day of fellowship in Rotary in support of the YMCA.
 

On a toasty Tuesday morning, 8 am, August 8th 

The Woodlands Rotary Club dedicates new timepiece in Town Green Park in The Woodlands.  The crew of past presidents and several rotarians joined Dr. Ed Robb, Chairman of The Woodlands Township to dedicate the clock.  The clock celebrates the 40th year anniversary of The Rotary Club of The Woodlands and it was fitting that the clock is also located in the 100th park of the area.  Here is the entirety of Dr. Robbs Dedication.
 
"Good Morning, As chairman of the Township Board of Directors, I am pleased to accept this magnificent gift to The Woodlands. As you may recall, we made an exception to our normal practice of receiving gifts. And it is fitting that we did. For this is an exceptional opportunity – presented to us by an exceptional organization: The Woodlands Rotary Club. And it is an exceptional occasion: the 40th Anniversary of the service club. So on behalf of The Woodlands community, I say Thank You. Everywhere I go in the world, from Asia to South America, from Africa to Europe – I see signs in fine hotels: “Rotary Club meets here.” And I know Rotary is working in that community for the common good. You are to be commended. We placed this generous gift in an exceptional location. At the entrance of Town Green Park. This park was a TCID project back in 2006, when I served as chairman. We built the park on 4 acres of land donated by The Woodlands Development Company. Today we have 140 parks in our town – and this one, designed to be the Central Park for The Woodlands – was the 100th. And here for decades to come will stand this magnificent Time Piece – reminding us Scripture’s admonition: that Time is fleeting.
 
Each day we will do well to ask ourselves:
1. Is it the TRUTH?
2. Is it FAIR to all concerned?
3. Will it build GOODWILL and BETTER FRIENDSHIPS?
4. Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?
So that on our final day on earth, when the hour comes, we might know we’ve lived well.
Again, on behalf of the 114,000 residents of The Woodlands, I say Thank You. Ed Robb

 

History of the Clock!

 
Last October, the Rotary Club approached The Woodlands Township Board of Directors with a proposal to donate the clock, agreeing to cover the $26,000 to buy and install the timepiece in the Town Center’s main park. To the club leadership’s surprise, The Woodlands board did not initially support the use of the club’s logo on the four faces of the clock. Some board members expressed concern that the clock violated the community’s signage standards. At the time, the board approved the donation of the clock, but only under the condition that the Rotary logo be removed. Martineau argued that the whole purpose behind the Rotary Club donating the clock was to let people know that the club is active in the community. “When you go to cities across the world you see Rotary has done something to improve the quality of life,” Martineau said. “The way the logo looks, it’s not intrusive like a Rotary sign. A lot of places you see a blue placard that says, ‘Rotary Club meets here’ … This was a more sophisticated way to say that Rotary Club is alive and well in The Woodlands.” After The Woodlands board’s initial decision, Martineau said that some board members approached the Rotary Club and talked about a willingness to make an exception to the signage standards. The issue came before the board again in December and passed, including allowing the logo.
