Fort Worth Rotary Club has been granted the IFSR Youth Service Award as a result of an article published in the  NBC 5 Dallas-Fort Worth.
This interesting story starts with a bunch of Rotarians buying cookies from girl scouts who are raising funds for their nurses and first responders project. To help them reach their goal, Rotary members from the Fort Worth Rotary Club bought out all their cookies. That action resulted in the NBC 5 video clip above that was seen by members of the Fellowship of Scouting Rotarians. The following is a memo from Steve Henning of the fellowship who announced the award.

The IFSR, International Fellowship of Scouting Rotarians, is a Rotary Fellowship promoting service to Youth through Scouting and Guiding. As IFSR webmaster, I search for reports of Rotary-Scout interaction and send an email of commendation to the Rotary Club involved. Your publicizing your club’s relationship with Scouting has served as an example for other Rotary clubs looking for ways to promote the Scouting movement.
We know about you, you should know about us. IFSR is composed of over a thousand Rotarians in 45 countries that work to promote Scouting and Guiding through their membership in Rotary. We have a website: and a Facebook page.
IFSR Certificates and Awards for your club to present
On our website, we have certificates the Rotary Clubs can award Scouts and Guides and an award that Rotary Clubs can award a Scout or Guide unit that has performed community service. The IFSR Community Service Award may be awarded by any Rotary Club to a Scout or Guide unit of their choice they wish to recognize for performing community service. The award may be given annually to any Scout or Guide unit by any Rotary Club. Recipients are selected by the Rotary Club.
This is not a Scouting award nor a Rotary award, but an IFSR award and is intended to permit Rotary Clubs to recognize Community Service performed by local Scout and/or Guide units.
To help Rotary Clubs create and print the award locally, this website has a fillable PDF version of the certificate which is easy to fill out:
2) Enter the name of the Scout or Guide unit (such as, Troop 101, Metropolis)
3) Enter the name of the Rotary Club (such as Metropolis Rotary Club)
4) Enter the date of the Award presentation
5) Then print the award or save and print at a print center.
Please notify the IFSR webmaster [] of the Scout or Guide Unit Name, Rotary Club Name and Date and a record of the award will be posted on the IFSR Awards webpage.
