Need help understanding the Rotary Citation Award requirements? 

District Administrator Shirley Pinnix-Evans

Happy New Year to all District 5830 Rotarians and good luck with your resolutions.  For those that have not entered your club Presidents-Elect on ClubRunner please get those names to Shirley ASAP.  Continue to get your work on the Citation completed early.  And, work on increasing membership keeping diversity in mind and being flexible.  I saw International President Mark Maloney riding on the Rotary float in the Rose Bowl Parade and was thankful to be a Rotarian and wished I was there.  Forge forward and let me know if I can help.  Thank you.   DG Jim Finstrom
THE CONCEPT OF VOCATIONAL SERVICE
The Object of Rotary is a philosophical statement of Rotary’s purpose and the responsibilities of Rotarians. The concept of vocational service is rooted in the second object, which calls on Rotarians to encourage and foster:
• High ethical standards in business and professions
• The recognition of the worthiness of all useful occupations
• The dignifying of each Rotarian’s occupation as an opportunity to serve society
Congrats to 19 clubs for adding 53 new members in the first 6 months of the Rotary year. Interestingly 66% of those 19 clubs had set club membership goals! However, due to some losses, the overall net new membership in the District is up 19 for a total of 1568. Take away: Goals work!! Goals increase the focus of leadership and club members and make it fun! If your club has not set it’s membership goal in MyRotary, please do so ASAP!!
 
Those clubs gaining membership the last 6 months include the following: BIG SANDY, CEDAR CREEK LAKE (+6), CLARKSVILLE, HENDERSON, JEFFERSON, KILGORE, LONGVIEW, MALAKOFF, MARSHALL (+6), MINEOLA, MT. VERNON, OVERTON, PITTSBURG, QUITMAN, SOUTH TYLER, TEXARKANA SUNRISE, TEXARKANA WILBUR SMITH, WEST BOWIE AND WILLS POINT.
 
Message from District 5830 Foundation Chair - PDG & VG Ted Huffhines:
District 5830 will hold its annual Foundation Banquet at Northeast Texas Community College (between Pittsburg and Mt. Pleasant) on February 8th. Our keynote speaker will be Past RI Director for Zones 30-31, Larry Lunsford. Larry and his wife Jill are presently serving as Aides to RI President Mark Daniel Maloney and his wife Gay. Larry is a wonderful Rotarian who will inspire all of us in our efforts to serve more effectively. We will also recognize all of our new Paul Harris Fellows and Paul Harris Plus Rotarians. We will recognize our Clubs for their Rotary Foundation Giving in 2018-2019, and we will hear about opportunities for service in Mexico City. Cost is $40 per person.
We in Rotary need your skills and leadership.  Serving as the President of your Rotary Club is one of the most important and enjoyable roles in Rotary International and our Lone Star President Elect Training Seminar (P.E.T.S.) helps make your Rotary Club President year easier and more effective.

Lone Star P.E.T.S. ( Feb. 27-March 1, 2020) is the largest multi-district P.E.T.S. in Rotary International.  Ten Rotary Districts from Texas and Oklahoma come together to plan, prepare, and present club leadership essentials.
It is time to notify your School District with the date and location of 2020 Rotary District 5830 Four-Way Test Speech Contest.   A big "Thank You" goes out to Mt. Pleasant Rotary Club, President Adeel Malik and the club members for agreeing to host the event.   Thank you!! Amy Hinton with Mt. Pleasant Rotary Club who will Chair the event again this year.   The District contest will be held on April 25, 2020 at Mount Pleasant Independent School District Administration Building, 2230 North Edwards, Mt. Pleasant.  The speeches must develop the year's theme: " How will the Four-Way Test of the things we think, say and do help successfully connect  you to your community at home and to the world?"
PDG & VG Ted Huffhines and DGN Mike Groom are available for giving Heart 2 Heart programs. Mike and Andrea went to Mexico for the annual Heart 2 Heart pilgrimage. They were in Mexico from 11/13/2019 to 11/20/2019 along with nearly 30 other Rotarians from Zones 30 and 31.
 
The Heart 2 Heart Program is a cooperative effort between Rotarians primarily in the "Heart of America" (Zones 30 and 31) and in the "Heart of Mexico" (Districts 4170 and 4140) and The Rotary Foundation to provide humanitarian service, primarily through matching grant projects. The next regular project visit is scheduled for November 4-11, 2020. There is also a medical mission trip to Tlaquepaque from 2/8/2020 to 2/15/2020.
