Dear RERC member and prospective visitor to Richardson East Rotary Club's meetings or events,
Our next in-person club meeting is at noon on Wednesday, November 16, at Network of Community Ministries: 1500 International Pkwy, Richardson.
Our only in-person club meeting in December will be on December 7, at Network of Community Ministries.
A number of Richardson East Rotary Club members supported the Richardson Symphony Orchestra by participating in the Beaujolais Bash on 11/19.
We are in need of volunteers for the KELF dwelling at Santa's Village this year. We are needing volunteers for December 3, 4, 10, and 11. There will be two shifts for each day with the first shift being from 2:45 to 6:00 and the second shift being from 5:45 to 9:00. We need 3 volunteers per shift. Thank you all in advance for helping out this year and let Tyler Ferrer know if you have any questions. 
Below is a link you can follow to sign up for a shift.
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 !
