Donate to RERC Signature Project

Inclusive Playground

On 18 November, Rotary General Secretary John Hewko and a team of Rotary staff will join Rotary Senior Leaders, members from Arizona, and around the world in El Tour de Tucson to raise funds for polio eradication. The team has set a fundraising goal of $10 million, including the 2-to-1 match from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.Read a blog post from a member of the team, and learn how you can support the effort.

We had drinks and dinner, made friends with others at the restaurant and was photo bombed - Rotary recruiting at it's best!

On 10/14 the Frazee's invited the members of the Richardson East Rotary Club to Mexican Fiesta to their beautiful home in Frisco. Members enjoyed delicious drinks from the bar and scrumptious Mexican food from Uncle Julio's prepared on the grill in the backyard. A lot of camaraderie and fun was enjoyed. Below follows a few pictures from the Fiesta.

Maurine Dickey visited RERC to speak about Barbecue, Boots & Badges. On the picture she is receiving a certificate from club president D. Schieferstein showing that a donation was made for her to the wheelchair foundation for coming to speak to RERC.

Since 1941, the Dickey family has taken pride in serving slow-smoked barbecue in their local communities. Today, the Dickey family and its family of restaurants takes pride in serving those who serve our communities, local police and firefighters.  This evolution in community involvement and civic stewardship is Barbecue, Boots & Badges. The foundation, enthusiastically led by Maurine Dickey, supports local law enforcement, firefighters and their families. The foundation is national, yet the support is intensely local — benefiting law enforcement and firefighters who put their lives on the line every day, serving the public. This is a way for Dickey’s Barbecue to serve in return.

Barbecue, Boots & Badges also creates partnerships between law enforcement and communities that are crucial in orchestrating crime reduction programs and initiatives.

The formation of the small groups have been announced. The purpose of the small groups is to encourage networking between the members to create a stronger club. The main focus for the groups will be on social events where the group members meet to have fun and get to know each other well. The groups should be meeting once per quarter.
The meetings should be documented with pictures and a blurb for our bulletin and website.

North Texas Giving Day (NTGD) was a success for RERC, we received a total of $4,250 in donations that will go towards our Signature Project, an Inclusive playground at Cottonwood Park in Richardson.
Thanks to the help of our generous donors and supporters RERC has raised a total of $31,250 since our kick-off this summer. With the NTGD donations we took another big step at reaching our target of $250,000 to make the Cottonwood Park an Inclusive playground.
We would also like to thank SAGE, the RISD Council of PTA's organization for Special and Gifted Education for their support in promoting NTGD and the Inclusive Playground to their constituency.
The next opportunity to support our efforts will be a special meal and entertainment hosted by Wildflower Patio and Grill on Tuesday, Oct. 10. This popular restaurant at the II Creeks area (formerly Marcus Cafe) will have a happy hour, fixed price three-course meal and entertainment by Ellis Island with a portion of all proceeds going to the Inclusive Playground. This would make a great date night for a good cause. Watch for details soon.

Five years since its debut, Rotary Club Central is getting a big upgrade
When we introduced Rotary Club Central in 2012, it revolutionized goal tracking and planning for clubs and districts — no more filling out paper club-planning forms or passing along boxes of historical club information every time a new leader took office. Rotary Club Central offered clubs and districts a quantifiable way to begin measuring local and global impact, specifically membership initiatives, service activities, and Rotary Foundation giving. But as with any technological advancement, in a few short years, Rotary Club Central began to show its age, and Rotarians took notice. They...
Rotary International Board adopts new zone structure
At its January 2017 meeting, the Rotary International Board of Directors adopted a new zone structure for Rotary clubs. Rotary bylaws require the Board to complete a comprehensive review of the 34 Rotary zones no less often than every eight years to ensure that each zone has an approximately equal number of Rotarians. The Board’s previous review of the zones occurred in 2008. The Board earlier approved the creation of three regional workgroups to develop rezoning proposals for Asia, Europe/Africa, and the Americas. These workgroups comprised one representative (either a current director,...

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...
