Greetings from Rotary Club of Marble Falls — Daybreak.

Daybreak Rotary is an organization dedicated to Service Above Self, to get our hands dirty doing “stuff” for the community and in particular for the schools and children. And we have fun too, while trying to Lend a Hand. The “Lend a Hand” logo and theme was the Rotary theme for 2003-04, the first year of Daybreak Rotary and it has been adopted as Daybreak’s own theme. Read here a little about Daybreak Rotary and Rotary International

Daybreak Rotary is a new club (considering that Rotary International was founded in 1905) and is a medium-sized club with a membership in the 30′s. We’re located in Marble Falls, Texas in a Rotary-healthy area. The (original) Rotary Club of Marble Falls is a noon club meeting on Thursdays and the Rotary Club of Burnet meets on Wednesdays. All three clubs often collaborate on projects. “Daybreak” is in Rotary District 5870, and is club ID number 62133.
