We would like to offer you a warm Waller welcome!
The Waller area encompasses the Waller Independent School District and covers over 320 square miles. Most visitors don't know, but the area includes the communities of Waller, Hockley, Fields Store, Rosehill, and Pine Island. This geographically diverse area extends into both Harris and Waller counties.
The City of Waller is located about 45 miles west of Houston just down US Hwy 290. About half of the town is in Harris County and the other in Waller County. Out here small town charm is still alive in both the area and it's people.
Next time you are on you way to Austin or Bryan / College Station, stop by and have lunch or take a tour of the area.

July Spotlight Members
Rotary Club of Waller County
The Rotary Club of Waller County was chartered in May 2010, when 22 like-minded citizens decided to invest time and energy back into this community. They saw typical problems that weren't being addressed by any of the governmental or social agencies but needed intervention of some sort. They rolled up their sleeves and began addressing the most obvious and ones that both time and resources could fix.
Strategically, club members began implementing activities that would allow future programs. Like any volunteer group, person joined and persons left the organization but several devoted individuals kept the group intact and on course. This has led to dynamic growth of projects and had significant impact on the citizens of Waller County.
In our four short years, we have provided 35 Thanksgiving Dinners; five families Christmas Dinners with presents for their kids; distributed Earth Day Coloring Books to every second grader in Waller County; handed out $9,000.00 in scholarships to students from Waller, Hempstead and Royal ISDs. Additionally, we support CASA For Kids; Family Ties and Focusing Families.
One could say, "That's not a bad start for only 10 current contributors." Imagine what could be accomplished if you decide to become part of this amazing organization!
If you would like more information about Rotary, please contact Debra Mergel at 713-819-0894 or Debi Ferris at 281-433-2529. Rotary Club of Waller County meets at noon on Monday at the Classic Cafe on Hwy. 159 (formerly Bluebonnet Cafe). Everyone is welcome to come and join us.
