In this time of economic crisis, many Rotary members are finding themselves in an unfortunate state so many Americans are experiencing either unemployment or severe downturns in their business revenues.
 
We believe Rotarians should help each other, so we are launching the Districts 5790 and 5810 Business & Job Connection.

Rotary is steeped in traditions of the past. Some are dusty and ancient yet some have withstood the test of time and should be embraced by every club.
 
Let us honor the old traditions and embrace the new by incorporating these ideas into your meeting plans.

“The strategic alliance with Rotary is exciting and allows both organizations to leverage our unique and similar strengths,” says Deepak Menon, Toastmasters' 2019-20 International President. “We look forward to providing our current and prospective members with ongoing additional offerings that meet their evolving needs.” In District 5790, we could not agree more.

Stories from our Vibrant Clubs

I Can Still Shine (ICSS) is an agency that provides multi-faceted services to support to women and their families in DFW.   The agency helps women leave abusive homes and assists women coming from substance-abuse programs.  Since 1995, ICSS has helped over 500 women and children, each year, escape from violent situations.  
 

In 1931, at the height of the Great Depression,
Herbert J. Taylor was a successful, young senior executive
with the Jewel Tea Company in Chicago, Illinois.

Herbert Taylor believed that if the people at Club Aluminum could “think right,” they would “do right” and he set out to find a simple guide to “right conduct” as he described, “a sort of ethical yardstick” - something everyone could apply to what they thought, said and did in their relations with others.
