We thoroughly enjoyed Gem Munro's effective presentation at lunch on Thursday, 19 January. Several Rotarians stated that his presentation was the best and more informative they had seen in a long time. We learned a great deal and truly respect everything Gem and the Amarok Society are doing by teaching mothers who in turn, teach their children in Bangladesh, Pakistan, and the poorest places. Thank you for visiting our small town and enlightening us, Gem. You're welcome back anytime! If you would like to help or learn more, please visit Amarok Society.
 
 
 
 
Our friend Charlie Waller is having an incredible adventure with Ride for Rotary in India! Rotary Mysore 3181 organized an International Motorcycle Ride / Drive event that began on January 13. The aim of the event is to promote International fellowship and the exchange of Rotary views. More than 100 participants from 15 different countries joined Charlie on this trip and will have wonderful experiences to take back home. The funds raised through this event go to The Rotary Foundation, which has contributed close to $100,000 to TRF from the last 6 editions. The ride will cover multiple Rotary Districts and many Rotary Clubs through Mahabalipuram - Pondicherry - Thanjavur - Madurai - Coimbatore - Ooty - Mysore - Madikeri - Mangalore. Charlie is in Coimbatore for the next couple of days. We can't wait to hear about the whole trip when he returns!

We are proud to provide funding again to sponsor the American Legion Texas Boys State and American Legion Auxiliary Texas Bluebonnet Girls State. These organizations send high school students to programs in Texas where they learn about the privileges of American citizenship and how state governments are organized and run by their citizens. Stateswomen and men will spend time at the Texas State Capitol, seeing both the rich history and beautiful facilities of our government. Learning leadership by participating in the political process supplements what students learn in the classroom. This is a practical opportunity for these young women and men to learn leadership skills through role play and civic exercises. The leadership skills they learn here before heading to college will last a lifetime. 
 
Thank you for providing these "Learn by Doing" leadership opportunities to these young Texans.

We wrapped up Rotary Foundation Month with a visit from Bill Dendy, Rotary District 5810 - North Texas - District Foundation Co-Chair, at lunch today! What a pleasure to hear him speak about all his years with the Rotary Foundation. He encouraged us to "Get Rotarized!" and reminded us how important it is to work at the grassroots level to get things done. Every Rotarian can find something they excel at within the 7 areas of Rotary Focus, and the Foundation supports those that do.
 
 
Wylie Rotary Club displays over 800 flags throughout the Wylie community on Presidents Day, Memorial Day, Flag Day, Fourth of July, September 11th Remembrance, and Veterans Day. Club members volunteer their time and effort to deliver and pick up the flags for each holiday, and it has allowed Wylie Rotary Club to raise money to assist in many local community service projects, local grants, scholarships for graduating seniors, scholarships for summer leadership camps, habitat for humanity, and school enrichment programs.  Your support of our program impacts many! Thank you.
