received us with tremendous appreciation. They provided our club with
certificates of gratitude and they wrote nice letters to the Harrison family

The students have agreed that they will be held accountable if they want
to stay in the program and use the new machines. As you will observe in the
photos, the program has mostly female students. This theme of promoting
education for women in developing countries has been stressed greatly by the

Weatherford Oklahoma Recycling Bins
by Tracy Adams
Rotary eClub One Member
Rotary eClub One provided a $500.00 grant to
provide 4 recycling bins in one of our local parks, Rader Park. Our city has
made strides since 2010 to bring awareness to the community about the
importance of recycling. The following is a link describing the goals of a recycling
committee established by the city.
The Weatherford Environment Action Group was
formed in 2010 for the purpose of coordinating the community's effort to
improve the environment and to be a resource for the City Council regarding
environmental issues and practices in the community. Additional goals for the
group are to increase the types and quantities of materials recycled; to expand
programs to keep our city clean and green; and, to provide educational
opportunities so to keep citizens informed and engaged in environmental issues.
Their efforts are a result of the Yes! Weatherford
campaign that was adopted by the citizens and extends a one cent sales tax. A
portion of the revenue generated by the sales tax initiative is made available
to this group for the purpose of improving the environment in Weatherford. The
group consists of a Recycling Committee, a Green, Clean and Beautiful Committee
and an Education Committee.
To date, the group has purchased a plastic
baler so that plastics 1 and 2 can be added to the recycling stream,
coordinated community clean-up days and presented programs to community
are pictures showing the presentation of the check and the recycling bins that
My husband and I will be working with the
committee and our community to promote safe recycling. We will also participate
in future recycling and clean up campaigns in our city.
