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 42 clubs and over 1500 members across NE Texas, SE Oklahoma, and SW Arkansas.
Rotary’s monthly theme for November is the Rotary Foundation.  I will share some outstanding facts about our Foundation. It is now over 100 years old and since it’s formation, the Foundation has spent more than $4 billion on life-changing sustainable projects. It is one of a select group of charities that merits Charity Navigator’s Four-Star rating. Arch Klump, in 1917, proposed setting up an endowment for the purpose of doing good in the world. His idea, and an initial contribution of $26.50 set in motion a powerful force that has transformed millions of lives around the globe. You see, when we give to the Foundation, we give hope to our world – not only abroad but at home as well.

November always celebrates The Rotary Foundation in the Rotary International World. World Polio Day has just passed, and Rotarians are able to focus on the good they can do through The Rotary Foundation (TRF). TRF is the engine which drives all the good we do. Whether it is giving dictionaries to local third graders, buying bicycles for children for Christmas, supporting your local food bank, or a host of other local projects, Rotarians make a huge difference in their local communities. TRF also allows us to do significant work internationally. In 2020-21, over 2,000 Global Grants valued at $130M were completed around the world. Your support of TRF helped provide clean water, medical care, economic development, education, and promoted peace in places around the globe.

District 5830 is ramping up its efforts to conduct Rotary Visioning Events for every District Club within the next year. DG Mike Groom has made this one of his prime objectives. To date in 2021, four Visioning Events have been completed. To increase the pace, more trained Facilitators are needed. To help fulfill this need, a Zoom training session on Visioning Facilitation, led by the RI Zone 30/31 Visioning Coordinator, Glen Vanderford, has been scheduled for December 6, 2021.  All Assistant District Governors have been invited to participate in the session. An invitation has also been extended as a refresher program for those already trained as a District Visioning Facilitator.
Our virtual 5830 District Conference held October 16th was an opportunity to learn, grow, and experience the joy 5830 Rotarians have given to others this past 2020-2021 Rotary Year. Go to District 5830  Website's (YouTube Link) or click here to discover an enjoyable 2 1/2 hours of learning, and find out about our new initiatives in Guatemala and Mexico.  If you missed Past Rotary International Director, Floyd Lancia's presentation on Eradication of Polio you will want to view the 24 minute video.  Celebrate with us as we announced Cedar Creek Lake Rotary Club as Club of Year and Past Atlanta Area Rotary Club President,  Fern Porter as Rotarian of the 2020-2021 year; and learn about the difference each and everyone of you made as Rotarians with your prayers, your presence, your gifts, and your action this pandemic year.
In 1919, the year the Marshall RC was officially chartered, they began meeting downtown atop the Hotel Marshall when it was constructed in 1929. This was the hub of the vibrant city located just a block from the Harrison County Courthouse. In the late 1960’s the hotel closed and the club was forced to meet in various locations around town. After four decades, the vacant and dilapidated hotel was donated to East Texas Baptist University. ETBU quickly began a Capital campaign and raised funds to renovate the building. It now is called the Marshall Grand and is home to the ETBU College of Nursing which is ranked Number One in the State of Texas.
