CFB Rotary really does care! Please take advantage of the blue Concern Cards which are placed on the tables during each Thursday meeting. You can mark your Concern as Public (in which case it will be shared with the club) or Confidential (in which case it will only be shared with the Chaplain Team). We ask all members to please keep these concerns in your thoughts and prayers and not to share this information with anyone else without the explicit permission of the person sharing the concern. 
CFB Rotary presented a $1,000 grant to help with relief of COVID-19 in India, which has been hit recently with a deadly new strain of the virus. Outgoing Club President Sonja Dodds (second from left) arranged for the donation at the request of Rotarians Simon Chamakala (far left) and John Chollampel (third from right). Father Renny Kattel (fourth from right) of Christ the King Catholic Church in Farmers Branch accepted the gift which will be used in southwest India, in the State of Kerala. 
Check your email inbox, and you should find a message from Club Program Director Pat Cochran. To help her better meet the interests of our members, she has prepared a survey (for current Club members only) to guide her in selecting speakers. To participate, just click on the word "survey" at the bottom of the email (or click on it here). Please complete the survey prior to our meeting on Thursday, July 15.

Attendance at CFB Rotary's in-person meetings has been growing steadily. Today's full-house underscored the fact that we are pretty much "back to normal." As a result—after over a year—we are finally saying goodbye to Zoom, effective Thursday, July 8. Note: Zoom will still be available one more time, for the meeting next Thursday, June 24. Rotary will not meet on July 1. 
CFB Rotary is pleased to welcome new member John Mahalik, shown above with fellow Rotarian Charles Heath (left). John recently succeeded Charles as Chief Executive Officer at Metrocrest Hospital Authority. A former Carrollton City Councilman (2005-2011), John also chairs the Board of Directors of the North Texas Tollway Authority. 
On Tuesday night, April 20, the City of Carrollton presented Carrollton-Farmers Branch Rotary with the 2021 Outstanding Community Organization Award (shared with Inspiring Lives Inc). The Club was specifically recognized for the construction of a handicapped-accessible playground at Mary Heads Carter Park and the donation of over $30,000 to Metrocrest Services to help the needy during the COVID-19 pandemic.
