Reading excellence. This year, Lewisville Morning Rotary has donated one bike for each grade level to be randomly selected from the group of exemplary readers in their grade level. While we are tickled for the youngster in this photo that won the bike, we are thrilled beyond belief that teachers from each grade level were able to recognize their classes superior readers. In all, over 120 Central ES students were recognized as superior readers.
Our 5th grade winner with members Bob Troyer, John Pokorny, Marilyn Pokorny and Charlene Dierks
Congratulations Grant Johnson. Described as is a well-rounded young man by teachers and staff, he has been a four year member of our baseball program. He serves as a great mentor and leader for our entire team, especially for our younger student/athletes. 
Grant was also a regular member of our Fellowship of Christian Athletes huddle group before COVID protocols limited the frequency of these gatherings. He also currently serves on the Principal’s Advisory Council, a student group that teams up with teachers and administrators on ways that Hebron can be the best version of itself. Bottom line, Grant is an outstanding young man that represents himself, his family and his school, in a positive way. Grant Johnson is a DIFFERENCE MAKER on the Hebron High School campus. Congratulations Grant!
Members Bob Troyer, Jeff Lighton, Deanna Perkins, Marilyn and John Pokorny entertained the year end Central ES students and parents with a game of bucketball. Winners at bucket ball received their choice of candy and a small toy. Kids received one each for every ball they managed to land in one of the buckets.
While the kids were taking their best shots at bucketball, our Rotarians had the opportunity to give their parents information about Rotary and our Lewisville Area Flag Project. While an actual count was not made, we estimate that at least 125 families stopped by and watched the kiddos at bucketball and received flyers. A fun time was had by all. Thank you Central ES for allowing us to participate.
Congratulations Carter Patterson! A model student athlete since coming to Hebron as a sophomore, he is not only a great golfer but has been a leader for our program and the values that it represents.
Carter has been a two time All-District selection, just missing regionals for the second year. He has played nationally in the American Junior Golf Association finishing third in his first event and also competed in the Jackie Burke Cup which is a very elite field event. He led the team this year with a scoring average of 75.3. Carter plans on playing golf in the college for McClennan Junior College.
Thanks to our artistical volunteer partners at Lewisville Painted Rocks, Lewisville Morning Rotary has an entry in Colorpalooza's reCOLORcycle exhibit that celebrates Polio Immunization Worldwide week (Apr 17-23) and the environment. Since 1987 Rotary has supported the worldwide effort to end polio and have succeeded in doing so in all but Afganistan and Pakistan. We will be accepting donations for End Polio at our vendor booth. Look for the booth with 12 American flags flying.

Participation in Lewisville Morning Rotary's Flag Lease Program earned many scouts their trip to Corpus Christi and a night on the Lexington Aircraft Carrier.
Through sunshine, rain or snow, members of BSA Troop 9168 do not miss their appointed rounds of delivering and retrieving Lewisville Area Flag subscriber flags on the holidays Lewisville. As a result of our partnership, BSA Troop 9168 shares flag subscription revenues with the troop so that troop members can participate in camp jamborees, camping trips and in this case a special trip to visit the Lexington Aircraft Carrier.
Central ES teachers are planning for our career day at school.  We do not have a confirmed date yet but expect it to be sometime in April. 
This story is call out to our members who may be able to come to the school and talk with students about their career. Or would be willing to submit a video that could be viewed by students.  Please contact member Charlene Dierks and who will pass the info to our counselor that will get in touch with them with more details. 
Congratulations Bob Troyer! Lewisville Morning Rotary Member of the Month for February 2022.
While Bob was not present to recieve his award, he had a great reason for not attending the Feb 17th meeting. Bob was attending President Elect training at Lonestar PETS. Bob will be serving as club president for the 22-23 Rotary year.
If leading by example is a criteria for being a great member of the month 
and a great club president, then Bob Troyer has those qualities in spades. Thank you Bob Troyer!
Congratulations Tejaswini Ramkumar Babu! February 2022 Student of Month from Hebron High School

Since 2014 our club has given over 7500 Dictionaries to 3rd grade students at 11 LISD Elementary Schools. This week we are distributing dictionaries to 960 of the 2022 third graders.

Distibuting the dictionaries is actually the most enjoyable part of the project. While passing out the dictionaries, one Rotarian will speak to the students.Introducing themself and  fellow Rotary Members from the LMR, We ask students to write the name on the 1st page because the dictionaries are theirs to keep. After every student has a dictionary, they look up word rotary and let them read definition and we tell the story of how Rotary got its name.

The Hebron High School Interact Club rounded up 50 volunteers Saturday, November 13th to clean-up the Hebron High School Campus for the Keep Lewisville Beautiful Clean-up Challenge.
Interact Club members and volunteers gathered 45 bags of trash and 8 recycle bags at the campus. The most unusual items were a tricycle a beachball, an iphone and airpods.
The artical below was written by his son Roger who is a professional writer. Unfortuneatly, there is no mention of Gordons service in Rotary or CCA which is understandable since Gordon would have joined Rotary after Roger left home.
Gordon joined the Lewisville Morning Rotary Club in Jan of 2003. Gordon was a regular attendee at our 7 AM meeting and was involved in almost all of our service projects. Gordon was a Paul Harris Fellow and a sustaining member. His major responsibility at meetings was to lead us in song, the happy birthday song whenever someone was celebrating a birthday that week.
In a growing city like Lewisville managing a 22nd century police department requires a both a depth of knowledge and an understanding, compassionate and approachable leader.
Appointed in August of 2018, Chief Deavers has demonstrated all of these qualities. As our guest speaker, he will be sharing the challenges of Police work in today's culture. Police work is the ultimate community service. Our police department recognizes this by its diverse ways of reaching out and meeting our citizens.
Deanna lives "Service Above Self" throughout by volunteering every opportunity she gets.
Her most recent Rotary project was participating in the Central ES Summer Reading Program bike give away. The program wishes to provide incentives for children to read. Children that completed a certain number of tasks throughout the summer were eligible to have their name pulled from a hat to win a bike.

Lewisville Morning Rotary awards bikes to two Central Elementary School student Reading Stars that participated in the Summer Reading Program
Students that have mastered their reading skills in elementary school will be successful in middle school, high school and college. It was this thought in mind that led school leaders to establishing a program to encourage students to participate in a summer reading program after this pandemic caused upside down school year. Lewisville Morning Rotary supported the program by providing the bike awards.
Rotary members from Lewisville Morning and Lewisville Noon Rotary Clubs were among Central ES staff at the annual Red Carpet Welcome for the 1st day of the 2021-2022 school year.
After the shut-down caused by the 2020 pandemic, it was really rewarding to be among the staff and fellow Rotary members at Central Elementary School as we welcomed back students for the 2021-2022 school year. Fellow Rotary members Bob Troyer, Mark Smith and John Pokorny from the Lewisville Morning Rotary Club and Bobbie Mitchell, Fred Whitfield and TJ Gilmore from the Lewisville Noon Rotary Club were among the Central ES staff that hooted and cheered as students and their families walked the red carpet toward their class rooms.
This year, Club President Dr. Traci Petteway will be selecting a Rotarian of the Month in recognition of the club member that most exemplifies the Rotary and our clubs mission through their support, actions and commitment.
The July 2021, Lewisville Morning Rotarian of the Month is John Pokorny.
A member of Rotary since 1987. As a result of job changes throughout his career as a Facilities Engineering Manager, John has been a member of 4 different clubs. He has been a member of the Lewisville Morning Rotary club since 2007. Currently, he serves as the clubs Foundation Chair and Webmaster.

The Lewisville Morning Rotary Club is proud to announce a $500 Grant to Knight-Light Charites Inc. Knight-Light Charities seeks to aid those who have a temporary crises and need assistance with their rent, medical services, utility bills or food.
For club members, serving the needs of the community includes supporting local non-profit organizations that fill a vital role in helping those most at risk. During our July 15th meeting, members awarded Knight-Light Charities a grant in support of their mission to financially assist those in our community that are facing a crises and need assistance with their rent, medical services, utility bills or food. The success of their mission has often prevented homelessness. 
One of the most fun projects of a member is to be able to award a grant to another area non-profit serving the needs of the community.
It was no different when we were able to announce our grant to Hearts for Homes this past week. The mission of Hearts for Homes is to improve living conditions for low-income senior homeowners in Denton County. Our donation will help buy needed supplies to repair homes for 84 senior homeowners.
Christian Community Action (CCA) is well known in our community for its Food Pantry for families that are food insecure. The pantry is reopening soon after the pandemic limited disbursements to preselected foods through a drive up process.
Club members are proud to have been able to support CCA throughout the pandemic by volunteering at the drive-up events. We hope to continue our monthly volunteer efforts with the Hebron High School Interact and National Honor society members.
The Lewisville Morning Rotary Club is proud to announce a grant given to Veterans Produce to continue their mission to end veteran hunger. Veterans Produce feeds homeless veterans by building community greenhouse gardens then teaching them to grow their own food.
Our members are pleased to be able to share our fundraising blessings with Veterans Produce. Their environmentally friendly way of producing food is an example for all to follow. We encourage community members to visit their facility at the Rich Lubke Organic Gardens where the above photo was taken. You will be impressed. Delicious, nutritious food produced naturally with a zero carbon footprint.
