As the Covid 19 Pandemic grinds on Lewisville Morning Rotary members
Continue to engage with each other and the community.
Service Above Self but virtually and responsibly social distancing with masks.
The coming week will be busy for our members as we continue to "rock on". The list of contributions continues to grow as we adapt to new normal.
This week-end, members of the Flag Committee and the Boy Scout Troop 9168 will be placing tri-fold tubes and Lewisville Area Flags tri-fold brochures on selected flags throughout our service area to publicize our growing flag program and recognize the Hero's of the Covid 19 Pandemic
May 18th will be an extremely busy Rotary day that we are hopeful members can join in on at least one if not all of the following events:
  1. 10 AM come to Central ES in your Cowboy garb, Rotary vest and mask. Stand in a socially distanced line to cheer CES alumni members of the 2020 Lewisville High School class as they participate in a drive-by parade.
  2. 3:30 PM, sit in on District 5790 Zoom meeting featuring Rotary International President Mark Maloney
  3. 6 PM return to Central ES in your Cowboy garb, Rotary vest and mask. Stand in a socially distanced line to cheer CES 5th Grade families with graduating students participating in the drive-by parade.
In addition the BOD approved grants to the following to assist Covid 19 disaster victims:
  1. District 5790 Rotary Rises Global Grant club pledge
  2. Salvation Army
  3. The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society to assist patients impacted by Covid 19
Our annual bike awards for Central ES will still take place albeit virtually. We will be awarding Student Perfect Engagement at Central ES by providing bikes for 12 students (2 from each grade that qualified as the result of perfect attendance through the March Covid 19 shutdown, plus students selected by teachers that dedicated themselves to their virtual studies throughout the remainder of the year. At our May 21 meeting, member Charlene Dierks (CES 5th Grade teacher will be pulling 2 student names out of a hat for each grade selecting the winners of the bikes.
As you know, our club has continued to meet virtually every week and we will continue to do so for the near future, re-evaluating health department guidelines periodically to decide when face-to-face meetings can take place. Even then, the BOD will continue to use virtual meeting tools to allow those of us that are "at risk" to continue to participate without exposing ourselves at a public meeting. If you have any suggestions please send them to President Tom Rowe or President Elect Mark Smith both of which are extremely proud of this clubs accomplishments during some very trying times. Congratulations Lewisville Morning Rotary members
