Welcome to the 45th annual Frontier Day Welcome to the 45th Annual Alvin Rotary Club Frontier Days! On behalf of the Alvin Rotary Club, we would like to welcome everyone to our 45th annual Frontier Day celebration! We have a wonderful festival scheduled this year which should provide loads of fun for the entire family. Starting with our carnival all the way through our arts and craft booths and car and bike show, Frontier Day truly has something for everyone. Our festival stretches over three days from Thursday, April 25, through Saturday, April 27. We will have a wonderful tradition coming back this year on Friday night the 26th as we will be hosting an old-fashioned Barn Dance. This will be taking place at Scopel Square, which is across the street from Stanton’s grocery store and the carnival. The event is free to the public. It will go from 6-10 p.m. with live music all night. American Idol contestant Colby Swift will be
playing from 6-7:30 and The Dave Ross band will be playing from 8-10 p.m. You will have a chance to hear great country music in a wonderful setting. Food can be purchased from Corey’s Kitchen as well as sodas and beer. Bring the kiddos, send them to the carnival and enjoy a wonderful night of dancing and fellowship. The grandstand during the annual Frontier Day parade, which starts at 9 a.m., will be set up in front of city hall for judging, and afterwards while you stroll down Sealy Street you can enjoy live music, arts and craft booths, kid’s games and delicious food. Come back to the grandstand for the awards from the parade at 11:30 a.m. The lucky winner of your choice of three fully loaded vehicles will be announced between 3 and 4 p.m. This year we are continuing our ever-popular downtown street location for our hundreds of arts and craft booths. Booths will be lined down Sealy Street all the way to the carnival at Hill

street. As you make your way down the street, don’t forget to visit our carnival. There are rides for all ages. You could win your choice of two loaded trucks or a sports car when you purchase a chance for $100. Tickets are available at all Alvin financial institutions or from Alvin Rotary members. Remember only 1,000 tickets will be sold, so get one or more soon.

downtown area between the chamber of Commerce building and City Hall. There will be live music at both the car show in the park and in front of city hall, as well as food and drink vendors there to satisfy your appetite and quench your thirst. Everyone will want to head on over to the huge car and bike show in National Oak Park and reminisce about the “good ole days” where you can chat with some of the owners of these really unusual vehicles. This year, the entire park will be taken up by the car show, allowing great opportunities to view all the vehicles. Along with the car show, National Oak Park will be the site of our local Brittany Hawkins dance studio performers as well as Redeemed Cheer Academy to show their cheerleading spirit and skills. Bring your whole family and come enjoy the 2019 Frontier

Frontier Day to celebrate Alvin’s heritage for 45th time By David Rupkalvis Publisher Alvin’s oldest and one of its most popular festivals will be returning in a few weeks when Frontier Day kicks off for the 45th time. Hosted by the Alvin Rotary Club, Frontier Day celebrates
Alvin’s heritage with a weekend of activities, games, music, a parade and much more. Frontier Day will kick off Thursday, April 25, and run through Saturday, April 27, with activities at National Oak Park and throughout downtown Alvin. After dropping out at the last minute in 2018, the always-
popular carnival is expected to return this year. Housed at the Stanton’s parking lot, the carnival will open Thursday and run throughout the weekend. There will be all-ride passes available throughout Frontier Day. “The carnival is back,” said Scott Helpenstill, the president of See FRONTIER, page 5
Frontier Day • Supplement to the Alvin Advertiser • April 24, 2019 • Page 5
FRONTIER Continued from page 4 the Alvin Rotary Club. “It’s Mighty Thomas Carnivals out of Austin. They’re bringing bumper cars, they’re bringing the Sky Tower to town, which is 100 feet tall.” Helpenstill said wristbands for the carnival can be pre-purchased
on the Mighty Thomas Carnivals website. On Friday night, there will be something new for Frontier Day. The Rotary Club is partnering with Scopel Kitchen for a barn dance. Food and beer will be available as Colby Swift, an
American Idol contestant, plays from 6 to 7:30 p.m. and the David Ross Band plays from 8 to 10 p.m. The highlight of the weekend is Saturday, beginning with the annual Frontier Day Parade at 9 a.m. which will wind its way through downtown Alvin. Once the parade is over, the carnival will kick off with many other activities. Along Sealy Street from City Hall to Gordon Street, a variety of vendors selling items such as arts and crafts, clothing, gifts and a variety of food will be set up. At the park, the yearly car show will get underway with dozens of historic cars, trucks and motorcycles on display. The car show will run all day Saturday, with judges picking winners in a variety of categories. Another crowd favorite, the Alvin Rotary Club Gunfighters, will perform their popular “Shootout” twice on Frontier Day, roughly around 11:45 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. by the Alvin-Manvel Chamber of Commerce. Another annual highlight is the Club 100 drawing, where the
overall winner can claim a new vehicle from Ron Carter Autoland. Tickets are $100 and can be purchased from any Rotary Club member. The winner can choose from a GMC Canyon SLE Crew Cab pickup, a Ford Mustang GT or a Dodge RAM 1500. There will also be five gift cards awarded in the Club 100 drawings Saturday. While Frontier Day is a fun community event for most Alvinites, it is a much more serious affair for Rotarians. For decades, the money raised through Frontier Day has been used to benefit Alvinites and nonprofit organizations that serve the community.
Through the years, the Alvin Rotary Club has donated more than $1 million to graduating students and agencies in the communities. Some of those include the Alvin Food Pantry, Meals on Wheels, YMCA, Brazoria County Fair and many Alvin ISD events. With the clock winding down until Frontier Day kicks off, Helpenstill said he and the community are ready for some fun. “It’s been around so long people really look forward to it,” he said. “Before I was in the club, I would go down to it. It’s a good, fun event.”

Frontier Day carnival to return with new rides in 2019 From rides that make you scream to winning a stuffed animal, there is just something special about going to the carnival. Every year, the Alvin Rotary Club brings the carnival to the city and makes it a part of Frontier Day. Because it is so much fun to enjoy the rides and some delicious cotton candy or a hot dog, it has become a highly-anticipated event. For a single charge per person, enjoy all you can ride for half a day. After the parade on Saturday, the carnival will become a part of the festivities. It will be set up on the parking lot across from Stanton’s Shopping Center for your enjoyment. Don’t miss the carnival as Alvin and the Rotary Club celebrate Frontier Day.
After a one-year hiatus, the Frontier Day Carnival will return in 2019. The Mighty Thomas Carnival will bring a variety of rides as well as games. A wristband for $22 will allow for unlimited rides each day. (File photo)

be the highlight event of the celebrations. The Rotary Club’s annual Frontier Day is a tribute to Alvin area citizens with a parade beginning at 9 a.m. The Alvin Rotary Club invites you to participate in the parade and would be honored if you accept the invitation. In order to defray the expenses for the parade, Rotary is asking for a $20 fee per entry (per auto). Please return the entry card as soon as possible to Germania
Farm Insurance, Andrea BurrMays, (Gordon at Adoue) along with your fee, no later than the Friday before Frontier Day so they can prepare a place for you in the parade. Last year, there were over 200 entries in the parade, and it appears there will be even more this year. An estimated 20,000 people watched last year’s parade, and this year’s crowd is expected to be even greater. Frontier Day is a tradition in Alvin, and it is good
family-style entertainment enjoyed by visitors from surrounding communities. Therefore, Rotarians ask you to please refrain from using water balloons or water guns in any fashion. The parade line up begins at 7:30 a.m., Saturday at the north side of the Alvin High School football stadium parking lot. There will be Rotarians to give you a numbered place card and direct you to your spot in the parade.

Sealy) during the Frontier Day celebration (11 a.m. to 3 p.m.) to see our display in the lobby. There will be a photo opportunity for children who want to try on some western duds, dozens of pictures and objects related to this story from our archives and a chance to help identify some of the people in the vintage photos. lined up along Sealy Street. Downtown store windows were decked out with various western and frontier themes. Mayor Tony Pugh had made his proclamation, and the hoosegow (jail) was ready to receive inmates. Promptly at 8 a.m., “deputies” began rounding up and “arresting” anybody who had failed to dress up in old-time Western attire. The judge (Bart DeWitt) was at his table waiting to fine the offenders. Meanwhile, the beard-growers were gathering at the corner of Hardie and Sealy to compare the
results of nine weeks of emerging sartorial splendor. Prizes were awarded for the longest beard, the scraggliest one and finally The Most Perfect Beard. Soon, more than 1,000 delegates of the National Federation of Dairy Cooperatives arrived in town at the invitation of dairyman H.C. Finger. They were just in time for the beginning of the parade, which started at the hospital on Gordon Street, went down to Adoue and out to the See FIRST, page 13

Spectators also got to watch 10 FFA members try to catch five greased pigs and hold them long enough for the catcher to write his name. The final event of the day was a Western dance held at 8 p.m. at the Memorial Community Center.

Interact Club brings spirit of Rotary to local students Interact is Rotary International’s service club for young people ages 12-18. Interact clubs are sponsored by individual Rotary clubs, which provide support and guidance, but they are self-governing and selfsupporting. Club membership varies greatly. Clubs can be single gender or mixed, large or small. They can draw from the student body of a single school or from two or
more schools in the same community. Each year, Interact clubs complete at least two community service projects, one of which furthers international understanding and goodwill. Through these efforts, interactors develop a network of friendships with local and overseas clubs and learn the importance of: • Developing leadership skills and personal integrity • Demonstrating helpfulness
and respect for others • Understanding the value of individual responsibility and hard work • Advancing international
understanding and goodwill. As one of the most significant and fastest-growing programs of Rotary service, with more than 10,700 clubs in 109 countries
and geographical areas, Interact has become a worldwide phenomenon. Almost 200,000 young people are involved in Interact.
Rotary International — giving back since 1905 The world’s first service club, the Rotary Club of Chicago, was formed on February 23, 1905 by Paul P. Harris, an attorney who wished to capture in a professional club the same friendly spirit he had felt in the small towns of his youth. The Rotary name derived from the early practice of rotating meetings among members’ offices. Rotary’s popularity spread, and within a decade, clubs were chartered from San Francisco to New York to Winnipeg, Canada. By 1921, Rotary clubs had been formed on six continents. The organization adopted the Rotary International name a year later. As Rotary grew, its mission ex-

panded beyond serving club members’ professional and social interests. Rotarians began pooling their resources and contributing their talents to help serve communities in need. The organization’s dedication to this ideal is best expressed in its motto: Service Above Self. By 1925, Rotary had grown to 200 clubs with more than 20,000 members. The organization’s distinguished reputation attracted presidents, prime ministers, and a host of other luminaries to its ranks – among them author Thomas Mann, diplomat Carlos P. Romulo, humanitarian Albert Schweitzer, and composer Jean Sibelius.
The Four-Way Test In 1932, Rotarian Herbert J. Taylor created The Four-Way Test, a code of ethics adopted by Rotary 11 years later. The test, which has been translated into more than 100 languages, asks the following questions: Of the things we think, say or do: Is it the TRUTH? Is it FAIR to all concerned? Will it build GOODWILL and BETTER FRIENDSHIPS? Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned? The Four-Way Test is recited at the start of every Rotary Club meeting.
