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.

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...
Member interview: Writer sheds light on FDR’s right-hand woman
Battling breast cancer in 2000, Kathryn Smith found comfort pursuing her lifelong interest in Franklin D. Roosevelt. The more she read, the more intrigued she became with the 32nd U.S. president’s private secretary, Marguerite Alice “Missy” LeHand. “I thought, what a fascinating life she had because she was by his side through the polio crisis, establishing the polio rehabilitation center in Warm Springs and then after his return to politics,” she says. Smith, a past president of the Rotary Club of Greater Anderson, S.C., and a longtime newspaper journalist, turned that curiosity into a book...
The Rotarian Conversation with Ban Ki-moon
One of United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon’s earliest memories is of fleeing with his family into the mountains during the Korean War, his village burning behind him. His father and grandfather had to forage for food in the woods; his mother gave birth to his siblings away from anything remotely resembling a health facility. “I have known hunger,” he says. “I have known war, and I have known what it means to be forced to flee conflict.” The soldiers who came to their rescue were flying the blue flag of the United Nations. The UN provided them with food and their schools with books....
Culture: Life in the bike lane
Like a lot of us, I spent much of my childhood riding bikes, but fell out of the habit for a while. Forty years. Then my wife and I moved to New York, where cyclists risk their necks in a daily Thunderdome of cabs, police cars, firetrucks, double-decker buses, messengers on motorbikes, and delivery trucks backing around corners at 20 miles an hour. Not for me! At least not until my 50th birthday, when my metabolic furnace flamed out. Calories started going directly from beer bottle to beer belly. It was time to start exercising. Either that or give up Samuel Adams, and I couldn’t do that to...
