The Guatemala Literacy Project has been described by for RI President Ian Riseley as the Gold Standard of Rotary Projects.
The Guatemala Literacy Project (GLP) is one of the largest grassroots, multi-club, multi-district projects in Rotary. More than 800 clubs and 90 districts have been working together since 1997 to improve education for underserved students in Guatemala. In that time, more than 278,000 students have been served through four sustainable programs that are tested and proven to work. In 2017, then-RI President Ian Riseley called the GLP “the gold standard of Rotary projects” for its sustainability and impact.
The GRACE Feed Our Kids summer lunch program provides lunches for children who live in predominantly lower-income housing locations.
Most of the children quality for free and reduced lunches during the school year.  Summer lunches are provided daily by churches, businesses, friends, and civic organizations at 6 sites throughout Grapevine.  In 2022 we closed up the final cooler at  GRACE main location and served 100 lunches.  In total, 30,331 lunches were served in 2022!
As in the past, this summer, the Southlake Rotary Club will be supporting Grace Feed Our Kids through its volunteer efforts August 11th at Grace Main St and on November 4th at the 2023 Grace Gala. One of our members, Alan Fisher, works for Texas Regional Bank.   They have agreed to partner with us by sponsoring the project by providing Southlake RC with a $500 sponsorship and water bottles.  The funds will be used to cover hotdogs, fruit, chips, juice boxes and a treats for 120 kids. 
President Tim Schuetz accepted award on clubs behalf at the May 20th Awards Dinner
The award was given to clubs that submitted their vibrant club award goals criteria to the district. The awards submission was a two step process in which clubs identified the vibrant club goals for the year in the 2nd quarter of the Rotary year. Early in the 4th quarter of the year, those clubs reported their year-to-date status of their vibrant club goals. 
Lisa Harrow, Realtor from RE/Max Trinity was appointed club secretary.
Lisa is a graduate of the University of Califoria, Los Angles and has also attended UC at San Diago. She has a passion for voluteering known in the community for her work in behalf of Davids Cure and Cruise for Hope. Her passion for volunteering led her to join us at the Southlake Rotary Club.
Professionally, Lisa is a member of the RE/Max Harrow Home team here in Southlake, Texas. Lisa was recently honored by 5 Star Professional for their 2023 Five Star Real Estate award!
Congratulations Lisa! We look forward to working with you.
Effective February 10, 2023 the Southlake Rotary Club will be hosting their weekly meetings at the White Chapel Methodist Church in Southlake.
While we are extremely grateful to the Harbor Chase of Southlake for allowing us to host our meetings at their facility, we are looking forward to hosting our weekly meetings at White Chapel Methodist Church as the club continues to grow. Same great meetings with the great speakers and a wonderful lunch. We look forward to seeing everyone in our new digs.
Kudos and enormous thanks to the Southlake Rotarians who participated in the annual Salvation Army’s “Kettle Campaign,”/bell ringing on December 3rd!
The kids also loved that Santa Claus, who also happens to be a member of our Rotary Club, appeared in front of Hobby Lobby in Southlake!
The Red Kettle Campaign — which runs from Thanksgiving to Christmas — typically accounts for about one-third of the total amount of money raised by the Salvation Army in an entire year.

The Southlake Rotary is proud to have as our first ever Business Spotlight: Bill Tait of State Farm Insurance located at 503 W. Southlake Blvd Southlake, TX.

A favorite of Southlake Rotarians, Dagmar Fleming spoke to our club on July 29, 2022 sharing her expertise in sales.
Dagmar demonstrated how to beat 3 potential success saboteurs that keep you stuck below your revenue potential. We all left fired-up, focused, and equipped with:
  • Easy strategies necessary to rocket your business forward and achieve levels you’ve never hit before.
  • The #1 most overlooked TOOL FOR SUCCESS (Every accomplished leader uses this one)
  • Ability to identify and dissolve (once and for all) limiting MONEY BELIEFS and deep emotional reasons you may not know you have that are blocking your success.

Rotary International President (2021-2022) recognized the Rotary Club of Southlake with the prestigious Rotary Citation.
In Rotary District 5790, only 19 clubs were selected for this award. The Rotary Citation awards recognize the hard work clubs do throughout the year. Taking action toward achieving the citation goals helps clubs engage their members, stay relevant in their communities, and run more efficiently. A welcoming and engaging club also reflects the values of Rotary. When clubs achieve citation goals, they contribute to the overall health and culture of Rotary for generations to come.

Southlake Rotarian and Board Member John Pichler awarded Southlake Rotarian, Randy McCauley with the PHF+7 RUBY Lapel pin, a Multiple Paul Harris Fellow pin.
The Paul Harris Fellow is the highest acknowledgment that a Club can bestow on an individual. What is less known about the RUBY pin, equivalent to eight PHFs, is that very few Rotarians are recipients.
The Paul Harris Fellow – Ruby Pin, was awarded to Randy in recognition of his support to the humanitarian and educational objects of The Rotary Foundation.
A Multiple Paul Harris Fellow RUBY pin, such as that conferred to Southlake Rotarian Randy McCauley, signifies a Paul Harris Fellow who has contributed as a donor at least $9,000 to the Paul Harris Foundation.  Here is additional information about the PHF’s:
The Rotary Foundation transforms gifts into projects that change lives both close to home and around the world. As the charitable arm of Rotary, it taps into a global network of Rotarians who invest0 their time, money, and expertise into our priorities, such as eradicating polio and promoting peace. Foundation grants empower Rotarians 
to approach challenges such as poverty, illiteracy, and malnutrition with sustainable solutions that leave a lasting impact.

We thank you, Randy, for demonstrating in your life and vocation a commitment to helping persons in need here and around the world. Please accept our sincere congratulations and appreciation for the support of the Rotary Foundation.
Our Club also enjoyed Randy’s presentation entitled “Economic “Wipeout!” Ahead, or Some Tasty Waves?” As President and CEO of Providence Bank in Texas, Randy McCauley has his fingers on the economic pulse of North Texas and his eyes on the horizon beyond it. As Randy likes to put it, "Surfing economic waves, accepting that there will be some crashes, but always looking ahead for the next big roller to break!" Randy presented an excellent and entertaining overview of the "waves" we're experiencing today in our economy, and what he suspects will happen next.

The Rotary Club of Southlake had a wonderful time with Giovanni Capriglione of the Texas House of Representatives at a recent meeting.  Honorable Capriglione shared several topics of interest, including insights into the state of property taxes, a hot topic for those who recently received their appraisal notices! 
Gio has recently been appointed as the Chairman of the Texas House Appropriations Committee, a budget writing committee. He has served three terms on the committee and previously chaired the Subcommittee on Infrastructure, Resiliency & Investment as well as the Subcommittee on Budget Transparency & Reform.  He also serves as the co-chair of the Texas Privacy Protection Advisory Council, leading the Council on studying data privacy laws in other states and around the world.
