Help Rotary Help Highlands

To the communities of
Highlands and Crosby:

Preparations are underway for our 31st Annual Chili Feast Raffle & Auction. Each year the Highlands Rotary Club holds this popular community even to raise funds for college scholarships, Rotary projects and for donations to other local charities and service organizations.

The Feast includes chili dinners cooked by our members, a raffle of a new vehicle plus 11 other items and live and silent auctions. This year’s vehicle is a 2006 Chevrolet HHR purchased from John Keating Chevrolet in Crosby, Tx.

As of June 2005 our Rotary Club has put over $325,000 back into the Highlands community from the proceeds of this one event. This year we increased the number of scholarships to 12 students, organized and completed a community wide hurricane relief drive, and are hosting a Rotary Youth Exchange student from Venezuela.

We also provide continuing support for the Highlands Volunteer Fire Dept., Highlands Food Pantry, the Library’s Summer Reading Program, Boy Scouts, Little League Baseball and a Rotary Interact Club at The Chinquapin School.

Ticket for the raffle may be purchased from any Highlands Rotarian and many Businesses in the Highlands area. Food tickets will also be available at the event. The Chili Feast will be held February 4, 2006 at St. Jude’s Catholic Church, 808 S. Main in Highlands, Tx. Please plan to attend and join in on the fun, food and fellowship. We’ll look forward to seeing you there.
