Dear RERC member and prospective visitor to Richardson East Rotary Club's meetings or events,
Our next in-person Richardson East Rotary Club meeting will be held on Wednesday, September 21 at noon at Network of Community Ministries located at 1500 International Parkway in Richardson
Welcome fellow Rotarians to fiscal year 2022 / 2023.
We have a lot to look forward to, leading with service and commitment. Our community will benefit from the impact we deliver.
The key to success is connection. The stronger our tie the closer we edge to achievement of our goals.
Throughout the journey of this year, we will form committees, plan key initiatives, and participate in projects of service.  
Our tool to help us sail across the year is Rotary’s 4-way test. What better way to jointly rise up and strengthen our pledge.
The benefit is growth and measurable impact.
Let’s collectively celebrate this year !
