This year the Lewisville Morning Rotary Club is Honoring the Vocations of those who Serve. Throughout every quarter for the next year we will be honoring a someone from the Lewisville Police Department. a LFD Fireman, a LFD Paramedic and a LISD Educator.

Lewisville Morning Rotary members John & Marilyn Pokorny are anxiously awaiting the arrival of German Exchange Student Henrik Thimm. Henrik is pictured here with his dad Wolfgang during a recent SKYPE visit. We anticipate the finalization of all Henrik's travel documents this week and look forward to his arrival before school starts August 22nd. Henrik will be attending Marcus High School.
The Rotary Membership Committee consisting of Co-Chair Brent Myers, Co-Chair Mary Jones, member Naomi Lewis, member Tom Atchison and member John Pokorny has been very busy developing this years growth and retention plans. We are evaluating a broad spectrum of ideas to grow our club to 40 members by June of 2017. Some ideas are long range requiring evaluation and time to implement. Others are very easy to implement. For example, we have identified some very specific vocations our club needs to round out our member profile.
For the remainder of August and all of September, we are encouraging all club members to identify and invite legal professional and or an accounting professional to one of our meetings. Members that bring someone from these professions will be awarded additional tickets to our weekly 50/50 raffle. These tickets will increase their odds of having the opportunity to draw the winning card from the deck that will give them 50% of the pot that has been building up these past few weeks from folks contributing to the 50/50 raffle.
The Lewisville Morning Rotary Foundation Committee has been busy planning this years activities. We have a goal to raise Annual Fund Donations to the Foundation of $4000. These are the funds that are ultimately invested by the Foundation and the interest from the donations raised during the next 3 years are used for local projects such as our dictionary project. After 3 years, those funds are use for Global Grants such as the TEACH project our club is doing in partnership with the Rotary Club of Nasik in India.

Live streaming event showcases a century of progress on polio
In 1916, New York City experienced a devastating outbreak of polio— the first major outbreak of the disease in the United States. One hundred years later, the world is a different place in fighting this disease. Cases have been reduced by 99 percent over the last 25 years and polio has been stopped in all but three countries. Global Health Strategies and partners of the Global Polio Eradication Initiative (GPEI) are hosting Polio Past & Present on 20 September at the historic New York Library as  an opportunity for global leaders and supporters to recognize the progress we have made...

Growing a future in Cape Town
From the October 2016 issue of The Rotarian On a drive along the N2 Freeway in Cape Town, South Africa, travelers speed past endless clusters of corrugated metal shacks that fill the sandy Cape Flats area between the airport and iconic Table Mountain. “I grew up in this area,” says Lloyd Whitfield, a retired dairy products company owner and member of the Rotary Club of Constantia, pointing out where his family once owned land. “There was just bush. I used to ride horses, and we used to shoot game in this area – there was nothing.” Now, more than a million people are crowded here, the...
