Denton Rotary celebrated its long-awaited Centennial Dinner on August 19th. Displays of club historical documents, newspaper articles and photos, along with drawings of the Nook, the club's Centennial Project, greeted guests in the reception area. 
Our speaker at Rotary this week, Thursday July 29, 2021, will be David Barrow.  
Dave is going to be telling the story of  the legendary ‘72 Denton Broncos that were the city’s first integrated high school football team and went to State. 
He made a film on the subject called When We Were All Broncos that sold out three nights in a row at the Thin Line Festival and has subsequently aired on KERA.
