Are you a Business or Professional leader in your community, seeking to make a difference in the world around you?
 
Rotarians are passionate people driven by the ideal of service. As a part of Rotary, you get to network with and give back to communities around the globe. District 5830 is made up of 41 clubs and over 1500 members across NE Texas, SE Oklahoma, and SW Arkansas.
“As no individual who shirks his community service can lay justifiable claim to being a well-rounded citizen, so no Rotary club of today which is indifferent to the welfare of the city in which it is established measures up to the stature of full-grown Rotary clubs.” A quote from Paul Harris in the November 1915 Rotarian. October is Economic and Community Development. Wouldn’t Paul Harris be amazed at the scope of Rotary’s involvement now focused on this area?

As I travel to my club visits, I am delighted by the club activities focused not only locally but in communities all over the world. Even the smallest clubs are making a big difference. Thank you!

Greetings from Chattanooga, Tennessee, and the Zones 30 & 31 Governor training and Zone Institute!!!
 
What an exciting event to learn, update and revisit Rotary friends!!
 
One of the guests was our District’s Membership coordinator at Rotary International, Haris Sofradzija. He shared some updates on your club using Rotary Membership Leads.
 
When any person interested in learning more about Rotary goes to Rotary.org and fills in an inquiry, they become a Rotary Lead. The lead, including their profile, is sent to the District to dissemination to the club officers, assistant governors and district leadership, so we can reach out to the person to give them more information about the club and, most importantly, come visit.

How recently have you thought about positive outcomes with money you go personally invested?

How about with money you invested with The Rotary Foundation?

We were all asked to join Rotary, but has anyone asked you to give to The Rotary Foundation? If not, please consider this your call to action. 

Many of us are accustomed to the terms time, talent, and treasure, and they reinforce and summarize the intentional acts required to support what we love and that in which we believe.
