District 5790 will not be sending any
students on exchanges at this time nor for
the Rotary year beginning July 1, 2021.  
 
 
We feel that there is still too much uncertainty as to what countries will be accepting students and what requirements they will have.  Not only that, but will the US be issuing visas for any students coming to the USA for an exchange.  Rotary has suspended all Exchange activities until July 1, 2021 and the board will review again in April and June of 2021.   We simply will not know the who, when or where with enough time to properly prepare for any exchanges.   We are regrouping to plan for restarting the program in 2022-23, which means we will begin looking for students in the fall of 2021. 
Members of the 13 clubs can go to the END COVID in Denton County Webpage
at endcovidindentoncounty.org to learn how they can participate.
 
The webpage provides several ways members can help. Volunteering at the mass vaccination hubs. Working to identify individuals that don't have access to register for their shots. Donations that are targeted to pandemic impacted families, Blood Drives, Convalescent Plasmz and others. Webpage is available to Rotary members, their family, neighbors and friends.
In this time of economic crisis, many Rotary members are finding themselves in an unfortunate state so many Americans are experiencing either unemployment or severe downturns in their business revenues.
 
We believe Rotarians should help each other, so we are launching the Districts 5790 and 5810 Business & Job Connection.

Adopting the Hybrid Meeting concept
for Rotary Club meetings requires
considerable planning as we adapt.
 
I've done a lot of investigation of this format for our Rotary Club - there are a LOT of people who are actively attempting to do this. You start off by clarifying exactly what the goals are:

Rotary is steeped in traditions of the past. Some are dusty and ancient yet some have withstood the test of time and should be embraced by every club.
 
Let us honor the old traditions and embrace the new by incorporating these ideas into your meeting plans.

In 1931, at the height of the Great Depression,
Herbert J. Taylor was a successful, young senior executive
with the Jewel Tea Company in Chicago, Illinois.
 
Mr Herbert left his great position at Jewal Tea, to take over the then failing Club Aluminum. Herbert Taylor believed that if the people at Club Aluminum could “think right,” they would “do right” and he set out to find a simple guide to “right conduct” as he described, “a sort of ethical yardstick” - something everyone could apply to what they thought, said and did in their relations with others.
