District Governor John Scott will visit the Rotary Club of Panhandle at their regular meeting at noon on Friday, Aug. 14, 2015, at the Carson County War Memorial Building. John represents the 1,800 Rotarians in District 5730 which stretches from Perryton to Pecos covering the Panhandle, South Plains, Permian Basin and Rolling Plains. He will share how Rotary is eradicating polio, supports international disaster relief, supports local and international education, and seeks to improve the lives of people around the globe.
The Rotary Club of Panhandle is comprised of business and community leaders who subscribe to the motto “Service Above Self.” The Rotary Club of Panhandle provides two $500 scholarships to Panhandle High School seniors each year through fundraising. The Panhandle club has also been blessed with the ownership of Rotary Park which encompasses the Panhandle baseball fields and Carson County Ag Barn. We believe Rotary has a vital role to play in Panhandle, Texas and the world.
