The Jourdanton Rotary Club participated in our local National Night Out on October 1st, 2019. We had a Festive Fall Bean Bag Toss and gave away assorted colored pencils with ours club’s name engraved on them. We had lots of fun and even let the kids play after our members tried their hand at tossing a few. We are looking forward to participating again next year.

It was a great two-day international service project which promoted good will and better friendships between our countries and encouraged fun and fellowship between the Rotarians.
