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, July 6 at noon at Network of Community Ministries located at 1500 International Parkway in Richardson

We did it!  With the hard work and teamwork of our Richardson East Rotary Club members, we successfully held our 25th Anniversary Games & Gala event.  We had a very successful evening with a strong silent auction, call to action segment, casino bucks and Head or Tails sales that will undoubtedly help put us over the top on our goal for the night!

We don’t have final numbers yet, so stay tuned, but we know it was successful.   Gala is more than just a money raising evening too.  It is a great time to highlight all the good work we do in our community.  And I think we were able to do a great job highlighting what our Rotary club stands for.  Your legacy is strong and the meaningful impact on the community is apparent.  So I consider our event a home run on so many levels once again this year.  Thank you for making all this possible!

Stephanie South

Gala Chair




A small but mighty RERC crew prepared the sensory garden for the spring and summer last Wednesday 3/30. The garden will be appreciated by everybody who visits the Ann Eisemann inclusive playground. An extra helper showed up to support the gardening as well, he is the 24*7 guardian. 
The Richardson East Rotary is currently sponsoring a food driver for this very worthwhile organization, Treasured Vessels (treasuredvesselsfoundation.org)
In their own words: “We provide safe communities that restore survivors of sexual exploitation to achieve their true potential.”
The link below will take you to a YouTube video by Alicia Bush thanking us for this food drive.  Below the video, is a link to the Treasured Vessels Foundation's wish list on Amazon.com  This list includes items needed for the  home as well as food items.
Please note:  when on the Amazon checkout page, Choose a Shipping Address,  be sure to pick Treasured Vessels Foundation as the address!  It will be listed in the Other Addresses List.
We’re going to keep this open in our club through March 14th.
Here is the link to the video and Amazon wish list. https://youtu.be/WpdPzTeaT7M
Richardson East Rotary is one of the proud sponsors of Network of Community Ministries' After School Art Club held every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 4-5PM. 
Network partners with Central Arts Program to host students from the community and help them learn about new art styles and techniques, make unique creations and get a chance to socialize with their peers.  
Monica, Stephanie and Laurie spread joy to the kids at the K-ELF TV station last week. 
Bruce and Per had the pleasure of serving our Santa's Village community on Sunday 12/5. Many people had fun in the nice warm weather. The set up worked really well and the kids were adorable.
The EDGE Awards were held on 11/17 and were well represented by RERC. 
Stephanie received the unsung hero award for all of the work she did last year, especially on the Gala and with the remote / hybrid meetings. Gwen won the Rotary Ethics Award for all the work she did with Strategic Planning and especially all the incredible  innovative ways she made remote Happy Hours fun. She helped keep the club moral very high and showed great effort and ingenuity making social events both fun and Covid friendly.
Congratulations Stephanie and Gwen to the well deserved awards!
