This beautiful logo was drawn for us by Joe McInnis. 
Joe was a member of Southside Rotary many years ago. 
He was in a wheelchair and had almost no use of his arms or hands. 
He drew the boat with his mouth and teeth.

Installation of Club Officers 2018-2019
The Southside Corpus Christi Rotary Club had their installation of new officers for 2018-2019 at Ara’s Euro Fusion Restaurant on Saturday,  June 30, 2018.  The members congratulated Scott Sutherland on the past great year for our club including getting the Presidential Citation.  They welcomed in Christine Udeani to “Be the Inspiration” for this Rotary year.  Some of the goals for the year is to increase member participation, secure sponsors for the Early Act First Knight Club, and to increase Wheelchair Ramp projects with the District Grant funds recently granted to our club.  The club “Beauty Award” was presented to Leo Barrera from the CC Downtown club as he has better attendance at our meetings than many of our members!  As our Rotary International President Barry Rassin states, “Be the Inspiration to your clubs and your Districts.  Show them what we can do in Rotary, and what we can be.”
All photos from the event can be viewed in our list of photo albums on the left margin of our website. Thank you to Dr. Gary Blum for the photographs!

In Memoriam - Joe High, First Dude
Remembering Joe High, First Dude, spouse of Past District Governor Debbie High of the Southside Corpus Christi Rotary Club.

Rotarians and friends in D5930 who knew Joe High, First Dude, spouse of Past District Governor Debbie High of the Southside Corpus Christi Rotary Club are deeply saddened by his death on June 11, 2018.  He passed away due to complications from interstitial lung disease. He lived life to the fullest.


Our deepest sympathy and thoughts are with Debbie and their sons Brian of San Antonio and Michael (Corisandra) of Houston, grandchildren Madeleine and Iden, and their extended family.  


Dr. Joseph High (CAPT United States Public Health Service) made his mark on humanity, Rotary International, US Army, US Public Health Service, National Cancer Institute - National Institutes of Health and the pharmacy profession. He truly gave his life for his country (CAPT USPHS). Joe was previous Scout Master of BSA Troop 1070, Walkersville, Maryland and a Wood Badge “Owl.” Joe lived our Rotary Motto of Service Above Self. We are proud of his dedication to the pharmacy profession and practice.


Rest In Peace First Dude Joe
