DGN Roger Paschal, DGE Peter Scott, and I will be introducing a new Three Year GROW Program. This Program will require critical planning and involvement from your Club!!!
We are scheduling 5 Multi-Club/Multi-Area Luncheons in different geographic locations within the District.  The schedule for each meeting available is listed below.
We will be asking Clubs to cancel their meetings the week they plan to attend the Multi-Club Luncheon that fits their needs best (if possible).  If your Club is unable to change your meeting date or place, we will expect the Leadership, Membership and Public Image Teams from your Club to attend one of the Multi-Club Luncheons.
The Meetings will be Lead by DG Gerald.  We are asking members begin checking in at 11:30 AM to allow time for fellowship and getting lunch, so the actual program can begin at Noon.
A detailed program and meeting planning explanation will be available next week.
Here are the date/time/Location for our 5 GROW Presentations. To register, hover your pointer over the desired location and click your mouse to go directly to that locations registration page.
Last November, Governor Gerald Robinson announced two e-club initiatives for District 5790. The intent of these initiatives is to allow the formation of two e-clubs in District 5790. One e-club will focus on former youth program participants and the other e-club will focus on community programs. Both are intended to provide a Rotary service vehicle for those whose travel and business commitments inhibit participation in one of the 71 community based Rotary clubs in our district.

 Dear Rotarians,
I have a super cool opportunity for the District specifically and the Rotary Foundation as a whole. We have a dynamite new Rotarian in our Club who is an accomplished sports writer and novelist. Marjorie Lewis has recently published her Historical Novel “When the Men Were Gone” which is centered around the first female football coach in the state of Texas! The book is phenomenal!
Ms. Lewis stated, "Between January 14-20, for every book sold (Amazon, Barnes & Noble, independent book sellers, Costco), I will donate every cent of my per-book royalty (it must be a book because Kindle sales are not recorded), which is roughly $1."
We'll need Rotarians to also get the support of their connections outside of Rotary. Funds donated will benefit the Rotary Literacy Program.
Additionally, Ms. Lewis will be featured at a book signing at the Southlake Barnes and Noble on Saturday, January 26th from 1-3 pm and will be interviewed by Scott Murray, an Emmy Award winning sports journalist. Stop by and show your fellow Rotarian your support! The day of the event, we'll have a drawing for a $200 gift card to Barnes & Noble. Each copy of When the Men Were Gone sold that day at Barnes & Noble will be good for one entry into the drawing. If someone buys two books, they get two entries, and so forth. Should be fun!
Yours in service,
Arlin Gold
Southlake Rotary President
