Dear RERC member and prospective visitor to Richardson East Rotary Club's below are our up-coming meetings or events:
Wednesday, March 29th is the 5th Wednesday of the month - volunteer Wednesday.  You are invited to help spruce up the Sensory Garden at 5pm.  Wear your club t-shirt.
Our next in-person meeting will be on Wednesday, April 5th at noon at Network of Community Ministries in Richardson.  
Jacob Ayotte received the RERC Helping Hands Award on March 1st.
Jacob Ayotte has a service minded and giving heart, but this year he has truly found a passion and space to do more for others. He works 15 hours a week at a local Tai-kwon-do studio mentoring and working with youth and volunteers for Feed my Starving Children as part of the Young Men’s Service League.
In the last 6 months he has been on two mission trips to Guatemala where they completed service tasks in the morning (concrete work/painting the school) and then put on a camp for children in the afternoons (games, crafts and songs). He started a bible study/youth group for middle school boys which has over 30 students in grades 6-8 attending.
He is also getting ready to launch a bible study for high school students this spring with a few of his peers. He always puts others before himself and will continue to look for ways to do more for others beyond high school.
Amelia Simmons was selected to receive our 2nd RERC's Helping Hands Award.
Amelia is a student at Richardson High School.   While maintaining an excellent academic record she volunteers her time always with a smile. She has served as an AVID Ambassador on numerous occasions, working with peers, students, campus leaders and visiting school districts representing her campus with maturity, respect and pride. In addition, Mia chose to participate in the inaugural year of RHS AVID, partnering with Academy 4 to provide mentoring for at-risk 4th grade students who attend a local Title 1 elementary school. 
On 1-25 we had the pleasure of inducting Sara Zwink as a member in the Richardson East Rotary club. Here with her sponsor Laurie Garvie and RERC President Rick Kimball.
Here is a brief bio of Sara: Hi, I'm Dr. Sara Zwink and my passion is helping those who struggle with anxiety or other chronic health issues, via nervous system care, so they can live the life they deserve without being at odds with their own body. When I'm not changing lives, I'm often found reading, trying new restaurants, or desperately finding a place to hike in this great state of Texas, that's just a bit flatter than my home state of Alaska. Happy to be here, happy to help you.
Leona Harder was inducted as a member in the Richardson East Rotary Club.
Leona is flanked by her sponsor Gwen Walraven and RERC President Rick Kimball
Leona is the Public Relations and Enrollment director at North Dallas Adventist Academy, an accomplished pianist, and a member of this year's Leadership Richardson class, Class 38. She has an extensive background in fund development and marketing, previously serving as the Development Director for North Dallas Adventist Academy as well as holding previous contract marketing positions with the Richardson Chamber of Commerce and Texas Instruments. She is an active community volunteer, and holds her B.S. in Corporate Communications from Southwestern Adventist University.
Derek Hernandez received RERC's first Helping Hands award. 
Derek is an active member of the ILTexas Interact club. He quietly steps up to assist wherever it is needed. Derek created a program to get unused food from the cafeteria to help the unhoused. Through his church, Derek works with the organization Boxes of Blessings.
THANK YOU to everyone who volunteered at Santa's Village! While last weekend was rained out, we appreciate everyone's willingness to volunteer.  
The Huffhines Park set up was really nice and as always the K-ELF TV station was very popular with the kids!
A number of RERC members spent some time weeding and mulching at the sensory garden at Cottonwood park. The garden looks great and is now ready for the winter.
