The Rotary Club of Blanco County is sponsoring its annual Joe Garcia Memorial Golf Tournament on Monday, May 1st, at Blanco’s Vaaler Creek Golf Course. Golfers will enjoy a day of sport, camaraderie, and fun as they support the many worthy projects sponsored by the Rotary.  Prizes will be awarded for closest to the pin, longest drive, etc.   A Silent Auction will be featured and special "events" will be enjoyed at various holes for those golfers willing to bet on a throw of the die, and other surprises.  The day promises to be a fun and memorable one. Lunch and dinner will be provided.  Golfers are invited to form their own Foursome, or sign up individually.  Cost for the day is the same as last year's fee, or $100 per player. To register and sign-up for the tournament, contact Doug McKenzie at:, or Ken Smith at:
The tournament is the major fund raiser for the Rotary Club of Blanco County.  Thanks to the players, sponsors, and donations, the Rotary Club has sponsored scholarships for seniors in Blanco and Johnson City, has provided hygiene kits for local students and refugee children, books, computers and other equipment to our local schools, human trafficking awareness, Save-a-Life Kits, and many other worthwhile projects benefiting our community.
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 Terri McKenzie at
