Many of our members, guest, as well as members of our Interact Clubs from RL Turner and Newman Smith gathered at City Hall to complete our tree planning project for 2017/2018.  This was part of our goal to plant 62 trees, one for ever member as of June of 2017, in both Carrollton and Farmers Branch.  A total of 31 trees was planted in Carrollton and 31 trees planted in Farmers Branch last year. Many of the trees in Carrollton were planted at Rosemeade Recreation Center in the new Dog Park.  We had lots of help with City of Carrollton landscape crews and Lorri Dennis, Certified Arborist.

Rotary Park also know as Gussie Field Watterworth Park, was once again host to Joni and Friends.  Joni and Friends is an organization that supports people and families with disabilities.  They gathered at the pavilion which is adjacent to the fully accessible  playground and park that our club, the Rotary Club of Farmers Branch and the City of Farmers Branch dedicated almost two years ago.  Children of all ages with special needs can play along with their siblings and family members.  An adult volunteer that is wheelchair bound said that this was the first park that he could access all the way to the top. It was a fun filled day.  Our club was honored to sponsore the Ice-cream Truck.

One of the world’s most widely printed and quoted statements of ethics is The 4-Way Test. Created in 1932 by Rotarian Herbert J. Taylor and adopted by Rotary in 1943, The 4-Way Test has been translated into more than a hundred languages and published in thousands of ways.

This week's CFB Rotary featured The 4-Way Test Contest. Four outstanding speakers came from CFBISD high schools (Creekview, Newman Smith, Ranchview, and R.L. Turner) to present speeches today. The names in order are Elizabela Hernandez, Creekview, Hoewon Huh, Newman Smith, Joshua Straup, Ranchview, and Edger Avila’ Mendoza, RL Turner, who was the winner. They were all outstanding! Well done, students!

The 3rd Annual Glow Ball Tournament was a huge success.  We especially thank Sonja Dodds for organizing the event.  We played for the first time at Riverchase Golf Course in Coppell. 
We have 52 players that teed off at 6 pm for our 9 holes before dark.  Following dinner in the clubhouse, we wen back around 8 pm and teed off for he glow ball part of the tournament on the same 9 holes.
There were numerous calls to the clubhouse from neighbors asking if there was a tournament going on. They wanted to see if they could play. Also, a neighbor out walking the course for exercise joined our threesome and road with us to the finish of the tournament.  We all had a lot of fun.
Thomas Bexley and his friend Coby Allen joined me to make up our threesome.  The pictures are of Thomas, Allen an my self. The video shows what it looks like teeing off one of the tee boxes.
As usual, it was a lot of FUN and we raised a lot of money for our community organizations and our upcoming playground park for Carrollton.

Four wonderfully talented students from the Carrollton/Farmers Branch ISD competed in the Rotary 4-Way Speech Contest.  The 4-way test for Rotarians is a set of principles that we recite every week as a reminder of our duty to ourselves and our communities.  They are:  1.  Is it the Truth?, 2.  Is it fair to all concerned?, 3.  Does it build good will and better friendships?, and finally 4.  Is it beneficial to all concerned?   The students write and present a timed speech based on these principles of Rotary to the club.  What an awesome experience to hear these future leaders to engage a room!  This years winners were:  1st Place going to RL. Turner student Dillion Odle. 2nd Place going Ranchview student Prasana Kuxmohan and 3rd and 4th place being shared by Roxanne Hill of Creekview and Analyn Moran of Newman Smith.  Congratulations to all of you

The Plastic Trap

How do we escape our tangled relationship with a throwaway culture? Rotarians are pointing the way.


Since 2015, more than 4 million people have fled an economically devastated Venezuela. Tracking the stories of three who left puts faces on that staggering statistic.
