Southlake Rotary - News

This month our Southlake Rotary Club Business Spotlight is Texas Regional Bank.  
 
 
Texas Regional Bank (TRB) is new to Southlake. However, it emerged in the Rio Grande Valley in 2008 after four businessmen realized that their community was missing the personal touch of a community bank. The bank's mission is to Be ‘The people you know’ in the communities we serve. 
 
The Southlake Rotary Club recognizes local businesses that emulate Rotary's mission of providing service to others, promoting integrety, advancing world understanding, goodwill and peace through the fellowship of business, professional and community leaders.

Kudos and enormous thanks to the Southlake Rotarians who participated in the annual Salvation Army’s “Kettle Campaign,”/bell ringing on December 16th!  The ringing bell represents the sound of curing hunger, the sound of Christmas to a child in need, the sound of a safe place for our neighbors to sleep.
 
 
Southlake Rotarians & Salvation Army Kettle Campaign
 
Last year, the Rotary Club of Southlake raised more money than any other kettle in Tarrant County! The Salvation Army Red Kettle campaign has been a Christmas tradition since 1891. Salvation Army Captain Joseph McFee set out a kettle to raise funds to feed the hungry in San Francisco. Now, The Salvation Army and Red Kettles can be found all over the world. 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.
 
For those who have a volunteer heart, you can also be a bell ringer from home! If you go to virtualredkettlentx.org, you can host a virtual kettle and share across social media to raise money. Alternatively, you can donate at the Salvation Army website at: https://give.salvationarmyusa.org/give
 
Thank you, Southlake Rotarians, for helping put this great team of volunteers together and helping the Salvation Army meet the needs of our community, providing the sound of help, hope, and comfort to our neighbors when they need it most during the holidays and beyond.

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.

Same great meetings with the great speakers and a wonderful lunch. We look forward to seeing everyone in our new digs.

Southlake Rotarians Lisa McBee and Tim Schuetz proudly represented the Southlake Rotary Club at the Southlake Foundation’s "Diwali Fest" this past Saturday at the Southlake Town Square
 
 
Our presence at the fest was to bring public awareness of Rotary International, our Club, and the impactful community and international projects in which we participate and support.
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.
 
 
Bill has been in the insurance industry for over 25 year.  However, 5 years ago Bill and his beautiful family joined the Southlake community with State Farm. Since then, Bill has become a staple of our community with his cowboy hat and amazing attitude.
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.

A BIG thank you to those who weathered the trash: Dan Phillips, Darenda Rangel and Sue Brown and little helpers (thank you, Darenda!)
 
 
As usual, we recovered some fascinating rubbish and refuse.

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 Rotary Club volunteers joined in with Grace Grapevine "Feed our Kids" organization last Friday (Aug 12, 2022) providing food and back to school supplies for over 100 kids.
