Successful first half of 2018-2019 Rotary Year
 
Rotary International President Barry Rassin has asked each of our 36,678 worldwide Rotary Clubs to report and periodically update their 2018-2019 goals in Rotary Club Central. Our club has updated it's midyear Rotary Club Central records. So far, we are doing very well this year.
 
We 33 completed service projects thus far and 2500 total volunteer hours (LMR members and our partners) donated in the past 6 months towards all our community service projects such as Household Hazardous Waste, CCA Pantry, Blood Drives, our fund raisers including the flag project, car show, breakfast with Santa etc. We have many achievements of which to be proud.
 
But, we can't rest on our laurels. Members of our BOD have identified opportunities to improve. As we move into the second half of the 2018-2019 Rotary year and help President Elect Tom Rowe organize for the 2019-2020 Rotary year, we need members to join us in implementing our New Years Resolutions:
 
  1. Grow membership. Induct 6 new members before June 30, 2018 through membership inviting guests to club meetings and events.
  2. Improved member participation in club committees. Each meeting, one club committee chair will update club on it's activity.
  3. Improve fund raising by engaging more sponsor participation and identification of the key fund raisers that members wish to support.
  4. Document our processes, identify emerging club leaders and provide training to succeed. 
  5. Formally recognize members that are engaged in helping the club achieve these resolutions.

Lewisville Morning Rotary and San Pedro Curridabat Rotary to build Mobile Dental Clinic
 
The Lewisville Morning Rotary and Rotary Club of San Pedro Curridabat are directing this effort to provide dental services to communities in Costa Rica. The three ton, 320 square-foot steel containers are typical of those seen in shipping yards except, for being transformed into a mobile solar-powered dental clinic by using two containers that are joined by a common roof and interstitial floor space to create an 823 square foot dental clinic. The inside, fitted with wall paneling and flooring, three dental chairs, an office, a reception, and waiting area, and restrooms. 
 
Our clubs have submitted a $55,000 Global Grant request to The Rotary Foundation to purchase and install equipment  for three dental chairs, an office, a reception, and waiting area, and restrooms. Currently, we need an additional $25,000 in pledges to complete the processing of the grant. Clubs can pledge to this project at MatchingGrants.org by clicking here.

2018-2019 Goals
Lewisville Morning Rotary Goals
 
In February of 2018 the Lewisville Morning Rotary Club started their 2018-2021 Strategic Planning through a process called visioning. At our February 2nd meeting District Visioning Chair Gene Davenport was our speaker and introduced the visioning concept to the club. In a nutshell, club members were asked to provide ideas of what they thought our club should look like and be doing in the year 2021. He left us with some homework to complete before beginning our visioning process Feb 17, 2018.
 
Seventeen of our members participated in the visioning process which was extremely productive. We developed many ideas and homed in on a final consensus agreement of what the club should look like in 3 years. Subsequently, then club president Jeff Siebert led club members through several exercises that were intended to be a template for the plan of action for each of the next 3 years.
 
We have already seen some of the fruits of our efforts with the new meeting venue and flexible meeting schedule.
 
Since that time, club leadership has developed and reported the following goals for the 2018-2019 Rotary year, as President Elect, Tom Rowe is tasked with updating these goals and reminding us where we stand:
