This morning at 6:45 a.m. I had the honor to be on Main Street Grapevine to put out the flags with other Rotarians (and for those of you who know me, early is not my favorite time of the day!!).  Today, we honor Peace Officer Memorial Day.
 
In 2016 there were 145 deaths, and for 2017, 48 officers have lost their lives protecting and serving our communities.  While there are negative issues with an extremely minor number of officers, the majority are out doing their jobs every day, answering the call at any time.  Please join me today in thanking those men and women for what they do and offering prayers that they go home safely each and every day!!!

On Monday, June 13th the Grapevine Rotary Club hosted its annual Golf for Grads tournament at Cowboy's Golf Club raising funds for scholarships.  With the club and community supporting this effort, over 15 scholarships a year are provided to students and future leaders!!!  This year, the Grapevine Rotary "Pro" was City Council Member and Mayor Pro Tem Darlene Freed.  Special thanks to Shonda Schaefer for leading this effort!
 
 
 
 
The Grapevine Rotary Club supported the Feed Our Kids by hosting 285 children for lunch on two days in June.  Rotarians and their businesses donated food, money and hours to serve a meal and smiles!  Mary Jo Tellin coordinated the effort and got most of the club involved in the effort!
 
 
 
The Grapevine Rotary Club once again participated in the Main Street Fest, serving adult beverages while sharing the story of Rotary.  Over an entire weekend, Rotarians came together to greet the 174,000 visitors to Grapevine, sharing some beer and some laughter along the way.  Our very own King of Beers, Bill Walsh, kept the club members organized and on time, raising funds to help the service of the Grapevine Rotary Club!
 
The Grapevine Rotary Club hosted a community-wide BLOOD DRIVE on Wednesday, May 6, 2016.  Over 60 units of blood were donated at The REC of Grapevine, 1175 Municipal Way, Grapevine Texas 76051.  This was an awesome event with several in our community getting involved.  Donations can still be taken for this effort never ends.  Call Audra Torres of Carter BloodCare (817)343-1271 to become a part of this life saving effort.

Five years since its debut, Rotary Club Central is getting a big upgrade
When we introduced Rotary Club Central in 2012, it revolutionized goal tracking and planning for clubs and districts — no more filling out paper club-planning forms or passing along boxes of historical club information every time a new leader took office. Rotary Club Central offered clubs and districts a quantifiable way to begin measuring local and global impact, specifically membership initiatives, service activities, and Rotary Foundation giving. But as with any technological advancement, in a few short years, Rotary Club Central began to show its age, and Rotarians took notice. They...
Rotary International Board adopts new zone structure
At its January 2017 meeting, the Rotary International Board of Directors adopted a new zone structure for Rotary clubs. Rotary bylaws require the Board to complete a comprehensive review of the 34 Rotary zones no less often than every eight years to ensure that each zone has an approximately equal number of Rotarians. The Board’s previous review of the zones occurred in 2008. The Board earlier approved the creation of three regional workgroups to develop rezoning proposals for Asia, Europe/Africa, and the Americas. These workgroups comprised one representative (either a current director,...

Convention: Southern hospitality
The Atlanta Host Organization Committee is offering some good old-fashioned Southern hospitality at the Rotary International Convention from 10 to 14 June. It has planned a wide range of activities featuring everything from good food and music to inspiring tours of local landmarks. If it’s your first convention, these events are chances to meet fellow Rotarians from around the world, and if you’re an experienced convention goer, you can catch up with old friends. Hall of Fame baseball player Hank Aaron will host Rotarians for a “Strike Out Polio” night at the new SunTrust Park, where you’ll...
Member spotlight: The power of the press
When Teguest Yilma helped found the Rotary Club of Addis Ababa Entoto in 2002, she thought polio had already been eradicated from most of the world. But while Ethiopia had been free of the disease, Yilma was shocked to learn that new cases had started cropping up in surrounding countries such as Somalia. “I was thinking, it’s not possible, we can’t be free if the countries around us are not free,” she says. Yilma, the managing editor of Capital, Ethiopia’s largest English weekly newspaper, has brought a journalist’s skills to the fight against polio. She became vice chair of the Ethiopia...
