Wichita Falls North Rotary Stories 
 
Wichita Falls Rotary Club North  in partnership with the  Rotary Club of Southwest Wichita Falls is excited to announce the 2023 Rotary Four-Way Speech Contest, and we’re inviting all high school students to participate!
 
Our local clubs will award a generous cash prize scholarship of $1,000 for 1st place; $500 for 2nd place; and $250 for 3rd place winners. The top three contestants will also advance to compete at the regional level, with opportunity to win additional scholarship prizes. 
 
Please help us identify students who could benefit by participating in this competition. There’s no entry fee. All that’s required is a commitment to put forth an effort to compose and deliver a 5-minute speech surrounding the topic of Rotary’s “Four-Way Test”, which asks the following:

Of the things we think, say or do:
 
 
Wichita Falls North Rotary Club partners with several other clubs for Water Sanitation and Dignity Project in South Africa.
 
 
 
Notice the new floors and walls!
 
During our Jan 6th meeting, PDG Troy gave the club an update of the South African Water project that our club used a District Designated Grant to help fund the project.
 
This project was a collaborative water and sanitation effort building on projects already completed by the Rotary Club of Grahamstown with the support of the Rotary Club of Jackson Hole in the Grahamstown/Makhanda schools. These projects have established consistent daily running water, filtered water for drinking (and consumption through the School Nutrition Programs) and have repaired all leaks at the seven identified schools.
District Governor Dan Steele was our guest speaker for the August 26th Early Riser Rotary Meeting at the Jimmy's Egg House Restaurant in Wichita Falls, Texas
 
Ajay Kumar opens meeting and coordinates normal weekly meeting
procedures before introducing DG Dan Steel.
 
District Governor Dan Steele started his presentation with a discussion of our 2020-2021 Rotary Theme, Imagine Rotary. The theme logo was designed by a member of the aboriginal tribe from Australia where the May 27-31, 2023 Rotary International convention. 
 
 
 
The Wichita Falls North Community Services committee develops a “plan of action” for the 2022-23 Rotary year.
 
 
 The committee, co-chaired by Joe Clement and Mike Crocker, culled through the many project ideas that members of the Wichita Falls North Rotary Clubs can do with the resources they have. A lot of planning goes into these events. Timing must be established and coordinated with the organizations we are serving, committee chairs need to be appointed and resources must be confirmed and scheduled. We are going to have a very busy year. 
 
Members of the Sheppard Air Force Base Squadron 364 were treated to a "Hot Dog Cook" last June 28th by members of the Wichita Falls Rotary Club
 
June 28th was a busy day for Wichita Falls Rotary club as they provided members of our adopted squadron to a hot dog lunch
 
Later that evening, members of WFNRC got together again for their annual Induction Ceremony to celebrate the induction of our new president and Board of Directors. 
Wichita Falls North and Wichita Falls Southwest Rotary Clubs Presidents Clint Wood and Bruce Gray lead a Caravan of RYLA Campers to Tarleton State University in  Stephenville, Texas. WFSWRC member Jack Brown drove the 3rd vehicle.
 
The RYLA Program is led in a professional, collegiate atmosphere where participants will Develop leadership skills, Increase self-confidence, teach proper social and business etiquette, Observe how city government operates, Expand their civic and patriotic skills in ethics and responsibility, Learn about the purpose and objectives of Rotary International while attending a Rotary club meeting including the Rotary 4 Way Test, Participate in a community service project and Participate in a global political exercise.
 
Team Gunnell leads the way.  Matt Milhollon, Cashin Poole, Spencer Smiser, Matt Gunnell, Bill Neale, and Ajay Kumar deploying and returning flags in the Edgemere Addition of Wichita Falls.
 
 
Deploying and returning over 500 flags for each of 5 flag holidays takes teamwork. And, Team Gunnell is just one of our teams that volunteer for this Service Project/Fund Raiser. The American Flag display gives our city a festive,  patriotic look and the money realized from this program is donated to a number of worthwhile projects in our community and world.  
 
 
Club President Clint Wood shown here demonstrating “walking with blindness”. 
 
Clair Walker discusses products offered by Beacon Lighthouse for the blind
 
Claire informed us about how she became visually impaired. She said that the main product produced by The Beacon Light House for the Blind is cleaning supplies. She passed examples around. She described types of blindness and used President Clint to demonstrate what it is like to walk as a blind person.
 
 
It was with great pleasure that Larry Gunnell, Matt Milhollon's membership sponsor was able to pin our newest member.
 
Past District Governor Troy Secord inducting Matt Milhollon as Larry Gunnell (his sponsor) looks on.
 
Mathew "Matt" Milhollon is a Financial Advisor with Edward Jones.  He is married, with no children.  He is interested in involvement in Downtown Development. Congratulations Matt!
