April 2021 Message from DG Jack 
Full Steam Ahead!  We are just a little over 75 days from the end of our 20-21 Rotary Year and from all appearances we are headed for a strong finish. Take a minute and congratulate yourself and the Rotarians next to you for continuing forward in friendship, fellowship, and service against a pandemic and significant adversity. You’ve earned more than congratulations.
And now we have just what we need in time to truly make a great contribution, vaccines and States open for business. You can sense the mood change!  The Sporting Clays Fundraiser by Texarkana Sunrise last Friday was fun, well attended and raised plenty of money for reinvestment in the Texarkana and Nash communities. Its success is followed by the District 4 -way Speech Contest in Mt. Pleasant, Bullard’s 1st Annual Sporting Clay’s Event, Longview-Greggton’s PRCA Rodeo, South Tyler’s Reed Franklin Spaghetti Supper, and our District PolioPlus “Fun” Raiser on May 22nd at Rowdy Ranch in Gilmer. Come out, have fun, support Rotary, the Foundation, PolioPlus, and your communities.
See you there!

Matching Points Campaign on April 1st
District 5830 started their two-month long Matching Points Campaign on April 1st. This is a wonderful opportunity for every Rotarian to gain additional Paul Harris Fellow recognition. I strongly encourage everyone to take part and make a donation of $100 or more! If you have questions about why this is important, please take a look at all the good that is done by Rotarians locally and abroad through The Rotary Foundation. 
Your generous support helped fund over $300 M in grants during 2019-2020. These grants provide for literacy and education, build local economies, fight disease, save mothers and children, promote peace, and provide clean water. Most of the time these grants help people you and I will never meet, but they also provide coats and shoes for local school children, build parks, provide food to the food insecure, send kids to RYLA, and provide college scholarships in communities across our district. Please be generous in your support for the Annual Fund and Polio Plus. You are making a difference!

Details on the Matching Points Campaign April 1st through June 1st
District 5830 was NUMBER ONE in Per Capita Giving and in Polio Plus Giving for 2019-2020! This District and our Rotarians have stepped up and generously supported our Foundation and its programs even during the challenges of the pandemic. This has helped maintain a strong trend that has been in place for several years, and WE NEED IT TO CONTINUE!
District Foundation team will be holding a Matching Points Campaign from April 1st through June 1st
If you donate $100 or more to TRF, you will receive an additional 100 matching points towards your next Paul Harris Fellow. If you donate $500 or more, you will receive an extra 100 points beyond the match; i.e., $500 donation receives 600 points. This is an excellent way to reach Paul Harris Fellow or your next level status much more quickly. It is also a strategy that could help your club become an ALL PAUL HARRIS FELLOW CLUB! This status comes with recognition for your club from The Rotary Foundation, and is very special!
