The Rotary Club of Blanco County sponsored the annual Joe Garcia Memorial Golf Tournament May 9th, at Blanco’s Vaaler Creek Golf Course.  Over 80 golfers enjoyed a day of sport, camaraderie, and fun as they supported the many worthy projects sponsored by the Rotary.  The winning foursome, sponsored by Frost Bank, were Fair Oaks Rotarians David Murrah, Ron Hubbard, John Rogers and Dave Driskell.  Prizes were also awarded in contests for closest to the pin, longest drive, etc.
The tournament is the major fund raiser for the Rotary Club of Blanco County.  Thanks to the players, many sponsors, and donations to the silent auction, the Rotary Club raised over $25,000.  This money is used throughout the year for such projects as scholarships for high school seniors, human trafficking awareness, art supplies for elementary students, drug and alcohol prevention, Project Graduation support, hygiene and save-a-life kits, and many others.
The Rotary is an international organization whose mission is to provide service to others, promote integrity, and advance world understanding, goodwill, and peace through its fellowship of business, professional, and community leaders.  The Blanco Club supports that mission through the above projects and community volunteering.  “Service Above Self” is the Rotary Motto.  If you’d like to join the Blanco Club, contact any member or Tracy Barr at
