We had a great turn-out of Rotary Clubs (all 6!) at the annual July 4th parade in Plano!  
We gave out candy to kids, had our decorated Rotary float, a sign showing the local organizations Plano Clubs support and a bunch of corvettes, some of which had signs for the different Rotary clubs.
Plano West also had participation from the Interact and Rotaract Clubs we sponsor! Yay!  We had the new president for our Clark High School Interact club - Arianna - as well as the new president - Vivi - and a couple members from our Community Rotaract Club!  So glad to have the support from our young people!

A core team of Plano Wester's, under the lead of Mike Walker, facilitated a Funnel Cakes fundraiser with Allen Sunrise at their annual July 4th celebration called Celebration USA.  The goal was to load our equipment and consult, in exchange for some of their proceeds.  Although a bad storm came through 1.5 hours into the event and lasted at a couple hours, we were STILL able to sell TONS of Funnel Cakes, with huge lines the minute we were up and running again.  Although we may not make a whole lot of money from this first-time event, it was great to have some camaraderie and fellowship with another Rotary Club, led by Bruce Heller (our friend who works at ShelterBox).

Thank you, Plano Westers!
What a great turn-out to our club meeting where we packaged up hearty sandwiches and healthy snacks for folks in Plano who are experiencing homelessness right now.  We made over 40 sandwiches - ham & turkey, with cheese - as well as bagging up some grapes, and pecans, as well as other snacks and waters.  Thanks, also, to Daniel & Michelle who handed out the lunches the next day at the Assistance Center of Collin County, where we probably served over 25 people in need.
Thanks, again, to all!  #PeopleOfAction

Every year, Barron Elementary invites Plano West Rotary Club to come help them with their Field Day event for all the kids, and it's always lots of fun watching and helping the kids with their different challenge events.
Barron also invites us every year to have our lunch meeting in their library, where we sit and each with their Student Council, and get a tour of the school.  These kids are SO amazing and smart, and we are excited for their futures!  This year we were able to present them with some books for the kids to read over the summer and with a small financial donation ($600) to help out where they need it.

Interact Spring Fling is an annual end-of-the-year celebration of what the District 5810 Interact Clubs have accomplished for the school year.  The 58 Interact & 65 Rotary Clubs work together on 2 service projects while the Interact students play games and get honored for their achievements.
Clark High School won honors for both:  Small Interact Club of the Year & Most Successful First Year Interact Club
There were 293 high school Interact students from all over District 5810 in attendance.  The Puerto Rico School Supply Drive, that was a multi-club, multi-district International Service Project was a complete success!  500 Backpacks were collected and 2,102 pounds of school supplies! And, the Sock Drive collected 566 pairs of socks for the Samaritan Inn Homeless Shelter - What to go, Interact!!
And, we are proud of our club member, Alex Johnson, who is leading our young adults for our whole District as District Interact Chair! Way to go, Alex!

Our first Rotary Adoption Awareness Fair in Plano was a success - especially if you are basing it on smiles!
Thanks to our Plano West participants, as well as volunteers from Addison Rotary, Royse City Rotary, Dallas & eClub Rotary clubs, North Texas Pioneers, Plano Sunrise, Plano Club, Plano Metro, and additional friends & family members!  We couldn't have done so well without all the help!  
CPS invited 26 kiddos, 23 attended, and they invited 50 potential parents and about 40 attended.  We will report any other statistics we may receive from CPS.  
We had delicious hamburgers, hotdogs, tator tots and french fries, as well as snow cones, popcorn, waters and sodas.  We also had crafts, games and virtual reality, plus candy and prizes for the kids.  The pictures are limited since we cannot post pictures of any of the kiddos, but we saw many happy kids.
Here are a couple pictures with some of our Plano West'ers and some N. Texas Pioneers.
From Plano West club, we had Daniel, Rose, Don, Tom, John, Alex, Lisa, Michelle & Glen (almost 50% of our club!)

Plano West Rotary was excited to participate as some of the judges for the 2nd Annual Chili Cook-Off at Barron Elementary.  There were 7 different chilis, including several beef, plus turkey, buffalo and two vegetarian chilis, one with Jack fruit!  They were ALL delicious, but we could only pick one winner!
We love to support our favorite elementary school, and eating chili was just a bonus!

What a great time, and thanks to all who came to celebrate our 39th club anniversary, and to honor current member and founder, Tom Posey!
We had some delicious appetizers, enjoyed talking with one another, passed around some older pictures and club bulletins, and heard some stories from our club's history.
What a Great Day to be a Rotarian!

Thank you, Plano Westers!
Almost the WHOLE club (17 out of 21, I think) showed up at this Tuesday's meeting to make sandwiches and pack other lunch items to help provide for those experiencing homelessness in Plano - woohoo!!  I only wish we remembered to take a picture of our service together.
We made a total of 44 sandwiches (ham and turkey), bagged up 21 baggies of cashews and 19 baggies of grapes, as well as providing 35 waters (left over from Plano Balloon Festival) and also 15 bananas and 48 nutrigrain bars!
Thanks to Don and Rose who helped distribute the food at the Assistance Center of Colllin County, on 18th street, about 3 buildings down from Chuck's place.  We probably served about 25 to 30 people.  Another couple brought soup, and there were also some clothing items there for the taking.  The recipients were very appreciative and really seemed to enjoy the food choices we brought.  Thanks, again, to all!

Our new Clark High School Interact Club is going strong!
They meet every couple of weeks (please see calendar for upcoming meetings - Plano West members can attend!) during block lunch.  This week, Steve, Alex & Michelle attended the meeting where they were making school signs to sell pecans & collect coats for people in need.
They are collecting coats for the All-Plano Rotary Clubs Coat Drive where we bring them to the Christmas/Holiday Party (this year it's Dec 6th) at Haggard Party Barn, and the Christmas Cops representatives are there to collect them from Rotarians.  Coats collected after Dec. 6th will be delivered to Christmas Cops organization.  Thank you Clark HS Interact for your support!
Plano West's Board also offered our Interact Club (and Rotaract Club) the opportunity to sell our pecans and collect $2/bag for the charity of their own choosing (rather than the funds going to scholarships, like our pecan proceeds).  
Clark HS Interact is selling pecans to support victims of hurricanes.
We are so proud of their "Service Above Self"!

Our pecans are in earlier this year!
Some have already been distributed to Hirsch's Meat Market in Plano, as well as Southern Maid and the Collin County Clerk's office.
We will have them next Tuesday at the meeting, so you can take some home with you, and find other places where they will help sell them for us!  The 14 oz. bags are $10.00 and our profits will go to scholarships for Plano seniors in high school, same as usual.

We had a nice cozy World Polio Day event yesterday, despite the rain!
So far, Rotary has contributed more than $1.8 billion to the Global Polio Eradication Initiative.
I believe we had representation from at least 4 Plano Rotary Clubs: Plano West, North Texas Pioneers, Sunrise and Plano Metro....and a couple people from a Dallas club (don't recall which one!).
And, I have to give a shout-out mainly to Vivi from our sponsored Community Rotaract Club who used her cellphone to provide sound to our live stream Polio video, but also to Daniel, Glen and John who all helped make it work, so we could watch together!
Thanks to John & Greek Isles for donating 10% of food & drink proceeds to End Polio, and for letting us "sneak peek" the Ghost - his specialty drink for our Halloween Party next week!   Halloween Party Details

Julia, president of Plano West's first Interact Club (at Clark HS), did a great job sharing information about Rotary and Interact to other students at Clark HS!  There were up to 14 people at the meeting, as well as Mike & Michelle from Plano West.  Julia had some great ideas and goals for this club, including 1 community service project each month & 1 international service project each quarter.  The club expects to meet at lunch every 2 weeks.
Also, Vig, our Rotaracts Club's president, did a great job as the speaker at Julia's first club meeting.  He is a former RYLA student as well as Rotary Youth Exchange (RYE) student, and that's what he talked about.  He shared how RYE works as well as his experiences in Taiwan and showed off is RYE blazer with all the pins he exchanged with other RYE students.

What a great Summit, totally planned by our 5810 youth!

There were various Rotary tables in the hall for Interactors to get more information.  The Rotaract info table just happened to have Plano West's awesome Plano Community Rotaract Club members!


The Interactors planned a Refugee Care Package service project as well as this Peanut Butter collection for North Texas Food Bank.  The goal was over 1000 pounds of peanut butter and they BEAT the goal with 1,312 pounds of peanut butter, loaded with the help of Plano West, and delivered by Glen to the NTFB Monday after the event.

Our Pictures with Fire Station #12

We had a great turnout for our lunch & tour of Fire Station #12 B - Thank you to all who came!
Plano West, with great support from our sister club North Texas Pioneers, enjoyed Greek Isles lunch together with Fire Station #12 in the bay, said the pledge of allegiance, presented them with an official Texas state flag from House of Representatives rep Jeff Leach, and got a tour of the site.
About half way through our tour, they showed us a beautiful handcrafted table made from wood salvaged from various fires they fought.  Right after that, about half of the on duty team was dispatched on a call.  Not 10 minutes later, the rest of the team was also dispatched, and we watched them take off in the fire engine!

This week's program was Jeffrey from the North Texas Food Bank, sharing what's new and the Grand Opening of their new building in Plano on Sept 16th.  Afterwards, we presented our speaker with a Certificate of Appreciation acknowledging a $10 donation in his name to the PolioPlus Fund.  With the 2 to 1 matching funds from The Bill & Melinda Gate Foundation, this donation provides a Polio vaccine for about 50 children!

The major draw for this Balloon Festival will be the 45 magnificent, colorful, hot air balloons. Fun for all ages, are the Special Shapes that attend the festival. The featured Special Shapes that will be participating this year include: Joelly the Baby Bee, Betty Jean the Butterfly, Flying Purple People Eater, Pepe, Baby Dino, Bimbo Bear, High Diddle Diddle, Peg Leg Pete the Pirate Parrot, and the always popular High Jack.

Posted by Past President Daniel Long for the Dallas Rotary Club
Dear Rotarians,
 To say that we are saddened by the tragedy that unfolded on Thursday night does not begin to express the many emotions we are feeling today. Our thoughts and prayers are with the families of our fallen officers, the injured, the entire DPD and Chief Brown, the DART police force and DART Chief J.D. Spiller, and our entire city.
We wholeheartedly support Chief Brown and his officers. The efforts they have made in the area of community engagement are to be commended and their programs are models for other police departments. By all accounts, the protest Thursday was peaceful and our officers treated the protesters with respect and dignity, which makes the outcome all the more tragic.
If, like many in Dallas, you are wondering what you can do to help, we have some suggestions for you:
If you would like to donate to help the families of the fallen officers, the DPD has directed us to the Assist an Officer Foundation. You can mail a check to the foundation at 1412 Griffin St. East, Dallas, TX 75215 OR donate directly by going to 
If you see a police officer, thank them! Buy them a meal; deliver cookies to a police substation in your neighborhood; give out Starbucks gift cards; write a supportive note or letter. We have seen how those gestures are so appreciated.
The Rotary Club of Dallas, in partnership with the police support group Safer Dallas Better Dallas, is having banners made to show visible, tangible support for our officers. This is something Chief Brown has requested from the public. The banner is shown at the top of this letter and the cost of the banner is $75/each. If you would like to order banners for display, please contact Barbara Daniel at for more information. If you would like to change the Rotary logo to reflect your own personal club, there will be an additional art fee on top of the cost of the banner. We suggest that each Club purchase the banners to distribute to elementary Schools in their area.
The Rotary Club of Dallas is holding a golf tournament on Monday, September 12th, with half of the proceeds going to benefit the Dallas Police Department. If you would like information on how to participate in our golf tournament, please go to our web site to see options for sponsorship:
Thank you for your continued support of the Dallas Police Department.
Yours in Service,
Michael Perry                                                       John Forest                 
President, The Rotary Club of Dallas                Chairman, Safer Dallas Better Dallas Committee

I have often been asked - "What is Rotary" and like a lot of people I sometimes have trouble describing Rotary in a few words. A fellow Rotarian shared this with me today and I think it says it better than I ever have - "Rotary is a global service organization dedicated to improving lives and communities across the globe. Along the way, the members develop lifelong friends and social contacts."

If you aren't a Rotarian now, you should be.

The above is a copy, from PDG, Ean Sullivan on FaceBook

The 5 Rotary Clubs in Plano have joined forces to host the second annual Honoring and Remembering 9/11 event.  Last year’s event was quiet a success with over 300 attendees and not a dry eye in the house.  This year we have engaged two retired NYPD officers to be our speakers; their stories will be very interesting I am sure.  The purpose of the event is multi fold:  to remember and thus never forget the events of 9/11 (the speakers), to honor first responders and survivors (honor the speakers with a Paul Harris Fellow), to provide community awareness of what Rotary does for our community and to raise a little money (hopefully) for Polio Plus.
I am sure you are aware of the debilitating effects of Polio and how it attacks children.  We are but a plane ride from one of the remaining epidemic countries away from an outbreak in the US.  As you should know, Polio Plus is the charity of choice of our District Governor’s spouse for the second year in a row.

Payment by Sept 1 is requested. You may go to and pay with credit card via paypal or mail your check (preferred) to: Plano Sunrise Rotary 9/11, PO Box 861165, Plano TX 75086-1165

ShelterBox Response Teams delivering aid in the Philippines following major typhoon

November 14, 2013
With the help of our supporters, including Rotarians, clubs and districts, we are working to immediately assist more than 4,000 families affected by Super Typhoon Haiyan. This typhoon was the biggest storm to ever reach landfall, destroying buildings, wiping out villages, and has reportedly caused thousands of fatalities.  

Our response teams were on the ground during the storm and began conducting assessments immediately following its passing.  Thankfully, we had emergency supplies prepositioned in the Philippines that were utilized immediately. But now, more are needed. 

Recently, warehouse volunteers rallied to our international headquarters to pack ShelterBoxes and prepare other supplies that will be sent immediately to help families displaced by the storm.

"Every day that goes past, we realize more and more the real significance of this disaster and the areas of devastation are becoming more and more apparent," said ShelterBox Response Team volunteer, Mark Curnow.
Rotarians ... are serving on our ShelterBox Response Team on the ground.  ShelterBox could not carry out this important work around the globe without the support of its donors.  Watch this video to learn more about our response.

We were given some great reports as to how RYLA has made a big impression on all of their lives for now and for their future. We were also lucky to have three visiting Plano Rotary Club members, Andy Sayers, Hubert Aaron, and Brad Keith. Thanks to all for a great meeting and please come back soon.

See the following from Matt Lagos, of Plano Sunrise, and a member of Plano Solar Advocates

I am part of grassroots group called Plano Solar Advocates (PSA) and we just launched a new initiative called Solarize Plano. This pilot program provides group purchase discounts for Plano residents interested in adding solar for their energy needs. We are getting into the hot summer months so I know many residents will be looking for ways to save money off their high electricity bills.

Any questions can be directed to Larry Howe, PSA President, at or by calling 972-468-1485.
