On Monday, August 10, 2020 the Rotary Club of Aransas Pass had the pleasure of Alan Wilson from the Rotary Club of Corpus Christi come speak to our Club.  Since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, our Club, as well as every other civic organization in Aransas Pass, has been challenged by a means to raise money to meet our financial obligations.  The Rotary Club of Aransas Pass supports APISD in the form of Scholarships and the EAFK Program as well as Project Graduation and Bicycles for Faulk and Charlie Marshall Elementary Schools.  We support Aransas Pass in the form of Literacy Donations, Aransas Pass for Youth and the TriCounty Christian Service Center.  We also participate with Rotary international in the 4-Way Speech Contest and Rotary Youth Leadership Awards as well as contribute to an International Project each year.
Karen Gayle invited Alan to come and share successful moneymaking projects his Club has utilized in recent years.  Alan arrived with his wife, Catrina, also with the Rotary Club of Corpus Christi and Lysa Chapman, Executive Director of the Corpus Christi Club.  Alan provided a multi-page manual as well as multiple pictures and much information our Club will utilize in the upcoming months.  All three were available for questions at the end of Alan’s presentation.  We were excited that Alan took time away from his job at Charter Bank Corpus Christi to come and speak to our Club.
