The Rotary Club of Cedar Creek Lake’s President, Tonya Chapman announces Alyssa Laffin as the Rodeo Queen Nominee for Mabank’s Western Week.
 
Last Friday’s meeting was held at Triple N Ranch and Winery where we enjoyed a delicious lunch and heard from Henderson County Sheriff Botie Hillhouse. Sheriff Hillhouse reported on what is going on in the county with regard to crime and law enforcement. Hillhouse is also assembling a task force along with District Attorney Jenny Palmer to focus on crimes against children.
Rotary meetings are always informative, interesting and fun.
 
June is designated Rotary Fellowships Month to recognize the importance of international fellowship and goodwill among Rotarians with similar recreational and vocational interests, promote increased participation in fellowships, and increase understanding of this program.
What a loving and supportive community we have here at Cedar Creek Lake! The Rotary Club of Cedar Creek Lake is extremely grateful to Brookshire’s of Mabank for allowing our club to collect donations for local food pantries this morning. We were at Brookshire’s from 9a.m. to noon and collected for three pantries - Tool Community Food Pantry, Mabank Area Good Samaritans (MAGS) and The Refuge.
Each hour two or more baskets were filled with food donations in addition to cash given by generous patrons of the store. We couldn’t be more delighted with the generosity and kindness shown to us by the community. Thanks to the Rotary volunteers who showed up to help and many, many thanks to all those who gave. We truly serve a loving community!
Today’s meeting was held at The Library at Cedar Creek Lake in Seven Points where Library Director Sondra Price and Tri-County Library Director Melissa Newland told the group about all the programs available at the libraries.
Both directors are very excited about the Summer Reading Programs. CCL Rotary Club president, Tonya Chapman presented checks to both libraries which will go toward making their summer programs unbeatable.
Make sure to get your kiddos registered on the library websites!
Our Cedar Creek Lake Rotary Golf Tournament had several BIG prizes up for grabs these prizes went to the following. The Superbowl of Golf Grand Prize went to the Raymond Shackelford golf team.

The Golf Tournament 1st Place winner was the Barton’s Transmission golf team, 2nd Place went to the Mike Moore golf team, and the 3rd Place went to the Coldwell Banker golf team. Congratulations to all of the winners!
 
The Rotary Club of Cedar Creek Lake met for breakfast last Friday at Dairy Queen in Seven Points and then took a tour of Miss Fran’s Garden at Tool Elementary School. What a wonderful addition to the learning environment at the school!

If you haven’t been to a meeting lately, you are missing out. It’s a great day to be a Rotarian!
 
The Rotary Club of Cedar Creek Lake presented donations to the Education Foundations for Mabank ISD, Kemp ISD, Eustace ISD and Malakoff ISD. Some of the donations presented were from the previous Rotary year as well since COVID drove many meetings to Zoom.

Congratulations and a BIG Thank You to ALL VOLUNTEERS for your help in making our Klothes for Kids mission so successful! 

 

Klothes for Kids has touched the lives of both children and volunteers throughout the CCL community!!!!

 
 
Friday, Oct. 22nd the Rotary Club of Cedar Creek Lake met at the Triple N Ranch and Winery as part of our “Rotary Eats Local” program where we enjoyed good food, fun and fellowship. Michelle Anderson, pictured below, a new Rotary CCL member as well as owner of the Triple N Ranch and Winery spoke about the history of how the Winery came to be…a great experience and a fun time had by all!
 
 
Tuesday and Wednesday, Oct. 12-13, the Rotary Club of Cedar Creek Lake had the pleasure of shopping for local students at Walmart for our annual Klothes for Kids program. School counselors and volunteers assisted as we picked out warm clothes for the children, including coats, shoes, socks, underwear and several outfits.

It is such an honor to serve the children of our community in this way.
 
We will have one more shopping day in November to conclude this year’s program.
 
If you are interested in serving your community and have a heart for children, consider coming to one of our meetings to learn more.
 
Today’s meeting was back at the Cedar Creek Country Club where we heard from local author Tammy Hornbeck who has written several books including poetry.
As a victim of abuse and while living in a group home at the age of 15, she began writing as a form of therapy. It took 20 years to get her first book, “Breaking the Silence” published and since then, has published several more. Very interesting and uplifting story she shared with us. You just never know what you will learn at a Rotary meeting!
Make plans to join us for next week’s meeting in the gardens at W456!
 
The Rotary Club of Cedar Creek Lake met Friday, Sept. 3 at the Cedar Creek Country Club, where we welcomed 422nd District Judge Shelton Gibbs as our guest speaker. Judge Gibbs gave an interesting overview of what happens after an arrest, highlighting the importance and origin of “probable cause.”
