The Rotary Club of Kerrville is inviting the Kerr County community to the inaugural Labor Day Family Picnic & Fun Walk in Louise Hays Park Monday, Sept. 4.

The brainchild of President Kristy Vandenburg, the idea behind the event is to bring the community together in the park, encourage guests to walk along the River Trail and treat each participant to a hot dog lunch.

“We really don’t have scheduled Labor Day activities in our community and I thought, as a service organization, this was something we could do to give back and promote fellowship,” Vandenburg said. “What better place to do it than in our beautiful city park and along the banks of the Guadalupe River.”

According to Vandenburg, Rotarians from the noon and morning clubs, along with the newly-formed satellite club, will be set up underneath the Sidney Baker bridge in the center of the park to register participants.

“There is no charge to participate. There is no requirement to the length of your fun walk,” Vandenburg said. “It will really be a laid back, community event. Most importantly, we want everyone to know there is no charge to participate, however you must be registered.”

Rotary is an  organization of business and professional persons united worldwide, who provide humanitarian service, encourage high ethical standards in all vocations and help build goodwill and peace in the world.

Locally, the Rotary Club of Kerrville, through its membership, has consistently provided more than $20,000 in local scholarships; has sponsored a Habitat for Humanity home; and contributes annually to numerous causes in organizations.

“The motto for Rotary is ‘Service above Self’,” Vandenburg said. “As a club, we really try to live up to the concept of giving back.”
