Wichita Falls North People-of-Action help supply Scotland ES Pantry

Some students at Scotland ES do not have food at home.
Our Rotary members pitch in by supplying a food pantry
for those students to have food to take home
 
Our club has a passion for children and making sure they grow up healthy and well educated. Unfortunately, some students are faced with challenges to their nutritional well being. The solution is to work with the school to help fill a pantry with non perishable food that these students can access.

In Rotary, our vocations are an opportunity to serve
We celebrate city employee vocations with the
Quarterly Employee of the Month
Congratulations Kyle Lange!
Vocation really means “a calling,” a strong desire to spend your life doing a certain kind of work or occupation. Vocations cause us to be driven by a passion that fills your life with fulfillment and satisfaction. And it’s that kind of passion that drives Rotary members to celebrate serving through their vocation. As Rotary members we also enjoy recognizing community members whose passion to serve our community makes our lives better and safer. Kyle exemplifies that passion for service that we all want to emulate.

Saving lives in Ghana

What is it like taking a large team to Africa?  It has probably been one of the most rewarding experiences in my life. In mid February, I began leading Rotary members from all over the East Coast of the United States through Ghana. I’ve tried to give the team a warm Ghanaian welcome like I’ve received on my earlier trips. A large trip is a real blessing because each person sees Ghana and our work in a different way.

Finding Safe Haven

For years, Angalia Bianca had slept in abandoned buildings throughout Chicago. She stole. She did drugs. She spent time in and out of jail for forgery, theft, trespassing, and possession of narcotics. But after she landed in prison for the seventh time, something changed -- Bianca knew she wanted a better life. She just didn’t know how to make it happen.
