Rotary District 5790 Stories 
This years pandemic altered Four Way Test Speech Contests turned out better than ever with 25 club contests and 2 regional contests that ended Saturday April 10, 2021. The finals will take place May 15th.
 
The winners of the March 27th and April 10th Regionals will compete virtually in the District 5790 Contest Finals on May 15th. Many kudo's to all that made these contests so successful including the contest coordinators from the 25 clubs and the judges, contestants and school coordinators from each club. But, in particular, we need to recognize the District 5790 Contest Chair Lori Richardson and Zoom Master Carlo Capua for staging two very effective Regional Contests.

Rotary has an exciting way to tap
into the energy and vision of
local high school students!
 
High School Students at 2019 Regional Contest
 
Every year in the spring, Rotary Clubs across North Texas District 5790 challenge local high school students to tackle a question or problem by applying what is known as the Rotary Four Way Test.  THEN they have to give a 5-minute speech in front of club members, family, teachers, and judges! 
The RC of FW Endowment Committee has just allocated $5000 in matching funds for any club who would like to contribute to the Tarrant Area Food Bank.  As you know, they have been especially busy distributing food to people  who were affected during the major ice storm.  We actually had the Rotary Club of Verrazano in Brooklyn reach out and donate $1000, of which we’ll match, leaving $4000 left. 
 
We are seeking Rotary partners in this project that will be serving friends and neighbors throughout DFW.
Members of the 14 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 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.
