Rotary Club members in District 5790 truly are People of Action
 
During this years May 18 and May 19th District Conference All Clubs Celebration, several clubs were recognized for the achievements of their members during the 2017-2018 Rotary Year. These clubs were recognized for excellence in Youth Service Programs, Vocational Service Programs, Community Service Programs, International Service Programs, Club Service Programs, Foundation participation. Membership Initiatives and Public Image practices.
 
Awards were given in each category according to club size Small (less 25 members), Medium (25 to 44 members) and Large (45 members or greater). To be considered for an award in each category, club leadership completed and submitted an electronic awards criteria form for each category. 36 clubs participated (17 large, 8 medium & 11 small).
 
To determine Club of the Year for the Small, Medium  and Large size clubs, points for each of the 8 categories were added. Club with the most points in each club size category was awarded Club of the Year honors for that category.
 
Congratulations to the following clubs for their stellar achievements this past year:
What is that Polio Eradication Picture?   
It's a picture, from the Sindh Province of Pakistan, of one of the 38 Million children immunized in the April 2018 Polio Immunization Campaign there.  Showing his "Purple Pinkie" immunization mark,  this child and his family need no longer worry about the paralysis of Polio!

Last Tuesday, March 27th, nearly 20 Rotarians representing the Rotary Club of Western Fort Worth changed up their weekly meeting routine.  Instead of the regular Tuesday luncheon and program at Ridglea Country Club, members mobilized to volunteer through the Ronald McDonald House of Fort Worth’s Meals From the Heart program.  Rotarians purchased groceries, prepared and served lunch to residents of the house, engaging in service, fun and fellowship with one another. 

 
It seems that Rotary District 5790 Rotary members simply can not stay out of the Rotary Magazine. Check out the December, 2017 edition. There is a great article about the Great Western Trail and Rotary member efforts preserve a bit of history. Rotarians from 3 countries led this effort to bring the overgrown trail back to life and install trail markers commemorating this wonderful bit of history. Fort Worth Rotary member Sylvia Mahoney along with several others on our district helped launch this effort which eventually led to hundreds of Rotary members from Mexico to Canada embracing the project.
 
Of course, if you have read the printed edition that came in the mail this week, you will also have seen  letters to the editor section of the magazine the photo of a Cross Timbers Rotary Club board meeting and a cryptic suggestion there may be a future RI president in that crowd.  Hmm...we can all say I knew them when.

Meet District Governor Chris McLucas
Christopher J McLucas and wife Heather
The theme for 2017-2018 is the most simplistic theme in years to tell the world exactly what we as Rotarians in our clubs in concert with the Rotary International organization do in the world.
 
Last February, while at PETs each club president was provided with several changes to the manner and method by which Rotary Clubs can operate to work to increase and retain Membership. These times are exciting for Rotary members as each clubs leadership will be redesigning their clubs operating policies in order to improve the membership experience in their club while executing the same Service Above Self community service projects each club has become known to deliver. The key here is flexibility. Clubs will be designing club experiences that meet their community and member culture.
 
Improvements will also occur in the Rotaract, Interact and EarlyAct experience with these Rotarians of the future taking an active roll in each Rotary clubs experience.
 
From Heathers perspective, “the Earlyact program in Rotary a fantastic program and has the potential of spreading the word about Rotary to people that may never have known about Rotary”. Heather plans to work with clubs throughout the district to establish Earlyact Clubs in District 5790 during the 2017-2018 year.
 
Both of us look forward to a wonderful year.
