Bringing education to rural Mexican area, one school at a time
When Mariana Day moved in 1989 to the small beach town of Chacala, in Nayarit, Mexico, she noticed that the surrounding rural areas struggled to maintain schools. And most children weren’t able to go beyond an eighth-grade education. Day, who is a member of the Rotary Club of Bahía de Jaltemba-La Peñita, in Nayarit, had started a local scholarship program before she joined Rotary. Called Changing Lives, the program provided students with high school tuition, uniforms, school supplies, and transportation. In addition, Rotary clubs from the United States and Mexico have been investing in the...

Welcome to our Website from District Governor Troy Secord


District Governor Troy Secord   
                       District Governor Home Club: Wichita Falls North
Welcome to Rotary District 5790, composed of sixty-six vibrant clubs across the Texas North Central Plains area.  The Rotarians in our area truly exemplify Rotary's motto of ''Service Above Self'' with projects in local communities as well as international projects around the world.  Rotary International is working diligently to cross the finish line of eradicating Polio worldwide and District 5790 is working hard to aid in that effort.  So whether your passion is in environment, literacy, hunger, health, or peace, Rotary has something to offer you.
I encourage you to explore our website for local events and service opportunities as well as information about District 5790.  There are a variety of clubs that meet for breakfast, lunch, and happy hour; and we even have an e-Club for those people who travel for work or have limited time for weekly meetings.  There is a place for you in our Rotary family.
The Rotary International theme this year is “Be a Gift to the World”. “Rotary members give the gifts of time, talent, and knowledge to improve lives in communities across the globe. “Through Rotary, we can take these gifts and make a genuine difference in the lives of others and in our world."  Join us in District 5790 as we have fun this year as we give the gift of hope both locally and around the world.  I promise that you will receive the biggest gift of all by serving others.
Thank you for visiting District 5790 and we look forward to seeing you soon!
Yours in Rotary,
Troy Secord
District Governor  2015-2016

Dear Polio Eradication Warriors,
 
One new Polio case reported this week.
Thank you to the 22 Rotarians that donated at the Foundation and Membership Seminar last Saturday raising an additional $935 to End Polio Now. All Rotarians in our district are encouraged to go to Rotary.org now and donate through your My Rotary sign-in.

Governor's Blood Challenge 
Has your club established a Blood Drive Goal? How many blood drives are you planning? Did you know that Rotary's roll in blood drives is not just getting membership to give blood? Our roll is to encourage the entire community to eligible blood donors to give blood. We understand that less than 30% of the population is able to give blood. So, our job is to get as many of our friends and neighbors as possible to a blood mobile where they can be screened and give blood if they are able. Rotary Clubs throughout District 5790 are being asked to host blood drives in their community throughout the year.
 
Lets put your clubs name on a Blood Drive Poser

Troy C. Secord, Governor 2015-2016
Rotary District 5790
 
Dear Rotarians,
It is my pleasure to serve you during the Rotary Year 2015-16 as District Governor. Our theme from our Rotary International President K.R. “Ravi” Ravindran is “Be a Gift to the World."  Over the past two years of training by Rotary International, Zone 21B/27 Leadership, and the insight of Past District Governors to hold this position, I have come to appreciate the dedication of the previous District Governors in their efforts in building the great Rotary District 5790. My hope is to build on the foundation that has been laid before me, so I need your help and assistance as we progress into this year.
