Vocational Service calls every Rotarian to work with integrity and contribute their expertise to the problems and needs of society. The Grapevine Rotary Club committee members recognize individuals for their service in the areas of police, fire and education. Each year since 2011, the Ken Diehm “Service Above Self” Award has been given in memory of Rotarian Dr. Ken Diehm. Spirit Awards are given to recommended Grapevine Middle School students each quarter, and this committee also works with the Rotary Inter- Country Teacher Exchange Program. The Grapevine Rotary Club has hosted several teachers from various countries and has also sent local teachers to other countries.

For more information, contact Rob Whitley or Kevin Mitchell.
