4th of July Parade Shirt and Hat Update!
Are you ready for the 4th of July Parade?  Does your blue Club shirt fit? Do you have a hat?
If there is a problem with your shirt, you can exchange it for the size you want!
All you have to do is:
  1. Contact Kathleen Klaviter, Now –> Kathleen@
  2. Tell her what size shirt you need – Men’s or Women’s (S- 3XL)
  3. Turn in your old shirt to her (dry cleaned)
The plan is for all Rotary Club of Park Cities' members to wear the blue shirt with khaki pants/shorts and the straw hat during the parade and at Goar Park.

Please join us on Friday, May 6, 2016 for an incredible program on Flying with the Blue Angels by Jerry Deren. Jerry accumulated over 2000 hours in the F/A-18 Hornet, made more than 300 carrier arrested landings, and served two tours as a demonstration pilot for the U.S. Navy Blue Angels flying the left wing and slot positions. 
The Rotary Club of Park Cities meets at noon on Fridays on the second floor of Maggiano's in North Park Mall. We are serving to make a difference. In December, the Rotary Club of Park Cities purchased the first ever mobile food pantry for North Texas for the North Texas Food Bank. We make a significant contribution each year to the North Texas Food Bank, the Salvation Army, Meals on Wheels, Ronald McDonald House, Fisher House, Scottish Rite, and many other organizations. Join us! Together we accomplish more!
Rotary International-We are 1.2 million neighbors, friends, and community leaders who come together to create positive, lasting change in our communities and around the world.

The 2016 Council on Legislation may well be remembered as one of the most progressive in Rotary history.

Not only did this Council grant clubs more freedom in determining their meeting schedule and membership, it also approved an increase in per capita dues of $4 a year for three years. The increase will be used to enhance Rotary’s website, improve online tools, and add programs and services to help clubs increase membership.

The Council is an essential element of Rotary’s governance. Every three years, members from around the world gather in Chicago to consider proposed changes to the policies that govern the organization and its member clubs. Measures that are adopted take effect 1 July.

The tone for this year was set early, when the RI Board put forth two proposals that increase flexibility. The first measure allows clubs to decide to vary their meeting times, whether to meet online or in person, and when to cancel a meeting, as long as they meet at least twice a month. The second allows clubs flexibility in choosing their membership rules and requirements. Both passed.

Representatives also approved removing six membership criteria from the RI Constitution and replacing them with a simple requirement that a member be a person of good character who has a good reputation in their business or community and is willing to serve the community.
