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.

Rotary district collecting relief funds for Louisiana flood victims
Rotary clubs of District 6200 are collecting relief funds to help thousands of victims after record flooding devastated communities in southern Louisiana, USA, earlier this month. Torrential rains caused rivers, streams, and bayous to swell, damaging or destroying more than 60,000 homes and killing at least 13 people. The U.S. Coast Guard and emergency responders helped rescue more than 30,000 residents from the rising flood waters. As of 25 August, more than 3,000 residents were still in emergency shelters even after the water receded. Donate to District 6200 disaster relief fund.
ShelterBox and Rotary clubs take action following earthquake in Italy
A 6.2-magnitude earthquake struck central Italy early Wednesday, killing more than 240 people and trapping an unknown number beneath rubble. Tremors were felt as far away as Rome, 100 km (65 miles) southwest of the quake's epicenter. International disaster relief agency and Rotary International project partner ShelterBox is sending a response team from its headquarters in the United Kingdom to the remote mountainous area of Italy where the destruction is most severe. The response team will arrive Friday, 26 August, to assess the area's needs. Luca Della Volta, president of ShelterBox Italia,...
Rotary members link love of beer, clean water crisis
When you sit down to enjoy a beer, you probably don't spend a lot of time thinking about one of its main ingredients – water. Or the fact that 3,000 children die each day from diseases caused by unsafe water. A group of innovative Rotarians aren't just thinking; they're doing something about it. Their group, Beers Rotarians Enjoy Worldwide (BREW), has organized events around the world and is working to raise hundreds of thousands of dollars for Rotary's global water, sanitation, and hygiene efforts. "By drinking a beer, I can help bring fresh water to a village in Africa," says Steven Lack, a...
Member Spotlight: Zabit Aimal's mission is to make peace
From the September 2016 issue of The Rotarian Kabul, Afghanistan, isn’t the easiest place for a fatherless child to grow up. Years of harsh Taliban rule had left Zabit Aimal the sole provider for his mother and sister. So in 2007, at age 17, he jumped at the chance to work as a translator and cultural adviser for American troops. Aimal was impressed with one American in particular, Nevada National Guard officer Kurt Neddenriep, a member of the Rotary Club of Elko, Nev. “His unit didn’t break down doors and make people angry. They’d go to the tribal elders, use me as a mediator to ask what’s...
Member interview: Chris Clemens, 'homeless Rotary club president'
From the September 2016 issue of The Rotarian Chris Clemens would make a splendid case study in the liberating influence of decluttering. In recent years, he has gone from sharing a five-bedroom house with roommates to living out of an 80-square-foot Volkswagen van. The freelance marketing professional and web designer now has taken downsizing a step further by spending much of the year backpacking around the globe. Untethered, but rooted in Rotary (at age 29, he was elected president of the Rotary Club of Santa Barbara, Calif., its youngest ever), Clemens, 32, maintains contact with club...
