Donate to RERC Signature Project

Inclusive Playground

We need 10 volunteers to help at the Inclusive Playground Open House & Concept Review on August 9, 5:30-7:30 in the Civic Center's Richardson Room.  Our Signature Project is coming to life!  Let Bruce or Karen know if we can count on you for this quick and easy effort.
Richardson East Rotary Club had the honor to welcome two new members to the club, Laurie Garvie (on the left) and Gwen Walraven (in the middle). Our President Karen Ellis (on the right) is the sponsor and also had the pleasure of inducting the new members.
Gwen Walraven
Gwen resides in Richardson and is an Attorney.  She is active in the community:  graduated LR Class 28, served as an LR Advisor for 3 years and is a member of Heights Baptist Church.  She also serves on the board of the Richardson Symphony.  She has been asked and has accepted the role of Secretary for RERC for 2018-2019!  She is especially interested in helping with the Inclusive Playground project – having a special needs family member herself. 
Laurie Garvie
Laurie is a Richardson resident and the Executive Director of the Richardson Symphony.  She is a graduate of LR, a current LR Advisory Board member, an Elder at Canyon Creek Presbyterian Church, and Secretary of P E O Chapter EZ.  She also is a Past President of the Friends of the Library Board and involved with the Richardson Symphony League. 
The officer installation for 2018-2019 took place at the Richardson Woman's Club in Richardson on 6-14-18.
Outgoing President D Schieferstein introduced the presidential gavel that he handed over to incoming President Karen Ellis.

The second annual picnic for the playground was held on 6-16-18. A big crowd came out to support the effort and to have some food and refreshments.
Bruce announced that $217,000 had been raised to date, but then got two more checks of $5,000 each - putting the total at more than $227,000.
One of the checks was from the "other" Rotary club in town, Richardson Rotary. They supported us with a donation of $5,000 to the project. Thank you!
J.J. Pearce HS student Josh Roberts put his time where his heart is. Josh sat outside the lunchroom for two weeks at Pearce pushing for donations to the playground. He raised more than $200. Way to go, Josh!
Terrace Elementary is "all in" for the inclusive playground. The Student Council identified the project as a fund raising goal and pledged $1,000 from their cotton candy sales. They are already half way there! That's Student Council sponsor Alicia Post and members of the council. — with Alicia Post and Tom Brooks.
