Making Connections ... Being a Gift
Duncanville business Gold N Things became the newest business to subscribe to our Flag Program.  
Phyllis and John Lambert have a great desire to support education and scholarships for high school students and said these are just a few reasons they put up the flags in front of their business.
Phyllis said she may put another one up, and is willing to help spread the word so that we can increase our scholarship fund!
Thank you both for your commitment to our City of Champions!

What a year it has been for the Rotary Club of Duncanville.
Outgoing President Helen Peralta presented a Thank You Award to Mary Fae Kamm, Executive Director of the International Museum of Cultures.  The Rotary Club of Duncanville has been meeting at the museum since January during a transition period.  Anyone who knows Mary Fae, knows that she represents the pinnacle of Rotary's guiding principle "Service Above Self".  Mary Fae was the second woman to preside over our Club.  Her husband, Herbert Kamm, served twice as President of our Club and is D5810 PDG.  Mary Fae has been the most gracious host and we will miss seeing her every Tuesday.  Thank you Mary Fae!

The Rotary Club of Duncanville starts with youth leadership development in elementary and middle school!  View this one-minute video montage of our EarlyAct FirstKnight Signature Project.  To start EAFK at your school, please contact Helen Peralta or Alexander Peralta, Jr.

Ending his second day on the job, Duncanville ISD Superintendent Marc Smith recognized teachers at the Rotary Club of Duncanville's Annual Teachers Appreciation and Awards Banquet.  Dr. Smith promised his support and pledged that he would spend the first 100 days in office making rounds to all schools and as many events as he could before the school year came to a close.  Marc is also a Rotarian and we hope to have him join our club in the coming weeks!

Past President and Past D5810 Assistant Governor Bob Talbot received his fourth Paul Harris Fellow recognition.
It is because of his giving that Rotary International is able to build schools and healthcare centers around the world,
provide clean water in remote areas where there is little or no access, educate people of all ages, bring shelter when
disaster strikes, allow babies and mothers to receive appropriate healthcare, and so much more!  
Thank you Bob for being a gift to the world!
