FamilyTime Executive Director Judy Cox, Rotarian Debbie McDonald and HAAM Executive Director Millie Garrison attended the recent auction.
The Rotary Club of Humble, led by Marvin Monk and a team of 10 Rotarians, purchased two steers and a swine at the 68th Humble ISD Livestock auction. The meat will be processed and presented to Judy Cox, executive director of FamilyTime, to feed their residents. A recent report from their cook said they were down to a 30-day supply.
This is the 17th year that Humble Rotary has participated in the livestock event. More than $125,000 has been invested in supporting the FFA and FamilyTime. Rotarians said this is a good investment of funds that are raised at their annual festival.
The Rotary Club of Humble raises funds for community needs via its annual Humble Rotary Festival, Eat Fish, Change Lives, fish fry and car show. This year’s event will be held May 2 at the Humble Civic Center Arena. The grand prize for the $100 raffle will be the choice of a Chevrolet Colorado LT or a Nissan Rogue SV from Robbins Chevrolet and Nissan. Tickets are available from Humble Rotarians. The event is also supported by more than 40 community sponsors.
Last year's event has enabled Humble Rotary to invest more than $100,000 into humanitarian needs this year. More than $1.6 million has been invested in these needs over the past 16 years.
Waylon Brown, Brady Duncan and Olivia Blair, the students who raised the animals, plan to use the proceeds for education purposes. They, along with their parents, will be recognized at a club meeting.
