President's Message
Chris Humphries
 
The Rotary Club of New Braunfels is a group of professional men and women who are dedicated to “Service Above Self”. This talented group of people work hard to give back to their community, through community service projects, charitable contributions, scholarships, Rotary Foundation, and many other programs. Rotary is an international club that has like-minded professionals providing services to others in need. It is important for our club and many others to continue to change the world for better. As President, I am excited to work alongside these Rotarians to achieve our goals for 2022 and 2023. We will continue to live by our Four Way Test:
 
Of the things we think, say, or do
  1. Is it the TRUTH?
  2. Is it FAIR to all concerned?
  3. Will it build GOODWILL and BETTER FRIENDSHIPS?
  4. Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?
We meet every Wednesday from 12:00PM to 1:00PM at Columbus Club Hall on Landa St. 
Member Spotlight
Lou Ann Wallis
 
Lou Ann’s family moved from their ranch at Tow, TX., to New Braunfels when she was in the first grade. Lou Ann was a twirler in the New Braunfels Unicorn band and played the flute. She was married to John Seidel for 22 years, and they had four children, Dustin, Sommer, Shannon (who died in a car crash in 2006) & Corey. 
 
Lou Ann continued her education and received her bachelors degree in 1978 from UT Permian Basin in Odessa. Later, she went on to obtain her Master’s degree in Counseling from Texas State University. In 2000, she married her soul mate, Randy Wallis, and her family went from four children to seven. They now have 13 grandchildren. 
            
Lou Ann has an entrepreneurial spirit, and over the years has had several cottage industry businesses so that she could stay home with her children, as well as being a 5th grade teacher at their school, New Braunfels Christian Academy. She has been a strong supporter of NBCA for 40 years, and currently serves on their Advisory Board.  
 
Lou Ann was in private practice as a Licensed Professional Counselor for 20 years here in New Braunfels and feels blessed to have been a part of so many wonderful people’s lives. In 2016, she and Randy started The Masters Roofing, a roofing and remodeling business. The names are significant to them, as they acknowledge God as their provider, and strive to honor Him in all aspects of their business as well as their personal lives. In May of 2017, Lou Ann retired from her counseling practice to join Randy full-time in the business.  
 
Lou-Anne joined rotary in 2018. In 1996, her daughter, Sommer was a Rotary Exchange Student to Australia. Lou Ann has had a love for the program ever since and has served with youth exchange since she joined Rotary. She currently serves as the Youth Lane Chair and the Youth Exchange Officer for our club and is a member of the District Youth Exchange Committee. Lou Ann loves to travel, singing at church, the outdoors, sitting on the porch with her husband, and visiting with friends and family. She and Randy are members of the Soiree Club of New Braunfels, where she serves as this year’s Secretary. Lou Ann’s drink of choice is Tito’s and LeCroix Lemoncello.
