Kerrville Morning Rotary Honors Dr. Nancy Chedzoy with a Paul Harris Fellowship Award

 

A keystone project for Kerrville Morning Rotary is our Medical Eye Equipment Loan Program for medical eye mission projects. Our passion is to do our part in reducing worldwide blindness by encouraging eye-care medical mission trips,” said Lew McCoy, Kerrville Morning Rotary President.

 

The medical eye equipment loan program is a result of the generosity of Dr. Jack and Lois Thurman. A number of years ago, when Dr. Thurman retired from his medical practice in Weslaco, Texas, and moved to Kerrville, he continued his quest to prevent worldwide blindness by taking his equipment on medical mission trips. After joining Kerrville Morning Rotary, Dr. Thurman decided to put the equipment to greater use and promoted the idea of a loan program to medical eye missionaries. He brought this vision to fruition by donating his expensive medical eye equipment to Kerrville Morning Rotary. Even though Dr. Thurman passed away in 2011, his idea and passion live on through the medical eye equipment loan program initiated and continued by Kerrville Morning Rotary.

 

Chris and Dr. Alvarez-Chedzoy continue this spirit of service above self by paying for all the maintenance costs for the equipment and are currently responsible for loaning it out.

 

We owe a debt of gratitude to them both and wanted to honor their service with this Paul Harris Fellowship to Dr. Alvarex-Chedzoy,” said Nancy Riley.

How does a small club successfully raise funds for service projects? Look no further than the model demonstrated by Kerrville Morning Rotary and the Dietert Center last year.
 
In 2015, over the July 4th weekend, Kerrville Morning Rotary and the Dietert Center partnered to assume the sponsorship of the annual Hill Country Automobile Club’s car show.
 
Prior to the car show, Kerrville Morning Rotary was looking for innovative ways to raise funds. Fundraising is always a challenge for small clubs. When the idea to assume sponsorship of the car show presented itself, President Mike Hunter and President-Elect Waverly Jones, rolled up their sleeves and went to work. Jones, an executive with the Dietert Center quickly brought them on board. Pooling the strengths of Rotary and the Dietert Center provided the necessary tools to make the car show a huge success.
