Club News
The Rotary Club of Bastrop County plans to host a “a sanctioned BBQ competition, fundraising, Fun, and Information event” with goals of having a major event in Bastrop, raising funds (primarily for local organizations and projects), fun, and Information activities.    This event would be held in on Labor Day 2021 (and 2011 Bastrop Fire commemoration).  One aspect is a “sanctioned Barbecue competition”.  Another aspect is fundraising where the goal is to raise funds primarily for support of valuable causes with emphasis on some example organizations or projects which support our Bastrop area community.  Support of community (local and larger) is a key kay goal of our Rotary Club.   This event should help raise funds (mainly for local organizations and projects) and be entertaining.   
From Sherry Murphey, the Director of Family Crisis Center in Bastrop "On behalf of our staff, board, and most importantly, the individuals we serve, I extend our sincerest appreciation to your organization for this donation. Rotary Club of Bastrop County’s past and ongoing support of the Center is truly appreciated. Please know that your efforts make such a difference in the provision of the vital range of services the Center provides to address and prevent violence and abuse in our community."
