9/11 Patriots Day Remembrance
 
Alice Rotary Club and Jim Wells County Veteran’s Office, along with Guest Speaker J. Karl Clark LT Col Retired U.S. Army presented Patriots Day in remembrance of 9/11/2001.
 
19 years ago United States of America joined hands, hugged one another tight, prayed and were One Nation Under God. During the event we came together to remember those who lost their lives. Even though we couldn’t hug or hold hands we were still One Nation Under God and We will never forget the sacrifices of the first responders and civilians lost on 9/11.

Extra Mile Member Focus 

 
Alice Rotary Club member Sandra Maldonado-Bowen worked, independently, to organize a project called "Nurses From Afar" in an effort to show these front liners the appreciation of the community. 
 
Teaming up with community members and leaders as well as organizations the project was developed to provide meals and snacks for the out of state nurses in the area helping the county’s public health crisis against the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
 
Mrs. Bowen created the project in honor of Calvin T. Ladner, P.E., the Founder and President of LJA Engineering, Inc. Mr. Ladner, who recently lost his battle with COVID-19, had a vast love for the community and though not a Rotarian proved to be a true example of Service Above Self.
 
Additional Rotarians that participated in this project were Ron Burke and Margie Gonzalez.
