Join Denton Rotary in our quest to being a vibrant club.  In order to achieve excellence as an organization, Rotary Clubs must have a plan to "make things happen" within a club culture where "members own the process" and are engaged beyond personal gain for the common good.  Join us as we begin our journey of exploration to become a vibrant club. 
 
We seek your input in our club culture, our direction that we intend to head, and a general plan of action as to how to reach our goals.  Being a Vibrant Club all starts with you - our members - and without you, we cannot do what we seek out do.  Join us this year in conversation as we explore our club interests and intentions.  Lead by PDG Dr. Gene Davenport, our conversation to becoming a vibrant club will begin July 11th, 2019 in our regular club meeting assembly.   
 
Before July 1st, 2019 - please complete the survey by clicking the photo above or going to this link
 
Thank you for your service above self and for your engagement in our club.
 

An Update from Our Costa Rica Project!

                 
Karen McDaniels reports, "We continue to train the women in the Global Grant project to be tour guides. The women and the trainers (Veronica, Sallie, Cathy and Karen) now have a close bond with the women who are eager to learn. Each morning of class, we begin with 1 hour for ESL to encourage them to improve their English speaking skills."

From left to right they are: Veronica (Rotarian to be), Sallie (Arlington Morning Rotary Club), Cathy Henderson (Denton Morning Rotary Club), Maru (Cartago Rotary Club), Rita (Cartago Rotary Club), Karen McDaniels (Denton Noon Rotary Club), Jimmy (Cartago Rotary Club), Marie (Cartago Rotary Club), Carlos (Cartago Rotary Club) and front: Mario Rivera Solano (Cartago Rotary Club President)."
