The Rotary Clubs of Austin and Killeen and the Austin Hotel and Loading Association  hosted a military families during the summer month of July for Operation Vacation. Sgt. James Spence, his wife Anna and their four kids  Steels(13), Drew(11), Marek(8) and Anna(5) had the time of their lives exploring Austin the weekend of July 29-31. 
They were treated like royalty at the Sheraton Austin hotel with a three bedroom suite with complimentary breakfast each morning, dinner Friday night, an  indoor, outdoor pool  and an incredible view of our Capitol. They enjoyed a day at Austin Parks and Pizza with video games, motor cars and boats and miniature golf thanks to Super Shuttle, bowling thanks to Dart bowl and a spectacular dinner thanks to County Line BBQ. The Austin Convention & Visitor’s Bureau arranged a Duck Tour for them and all of the sponsors provided souvenirs and gifts from our great city as a thank you for their service to our country. We should all be grateful for the sacrifices these families make every day for our safety. So next time you see a soldier tell them thank you!
