This week's Program:

David Gomez and Scot Moran
Classification Talks

     Arlington Sunrise Rotary's two newest members, David Gomez (l) and Scot Moran (r) presented their Classification Talks at this morning's gathering.

     David owns Old Towne Barber Shop on E. Abram and will also be opening up a flooring store two doors down from his barber shop very soon.

      Scot is with Facebook for Business and has dabbled in real estate, too. He is a former member of the South Valley, Utah Rotary Club.

     Both of these new members were able to step up and present this morning when the Four Way Test Speech contest had to be postponed due to family issues with the teacher sponsor at the high school.

     A new member orientation has been scheduled for Saturday, March 31 at 8:00 a.m. at Southern Flair Photography, 2214 W. Park Row.

      Everyone who has joined the Arlington Sunrise Rotary Club since July 1, 2017 is highly encouraged to attend, but especially those who still have their Red Badge. 

     Of course, anyone who would like to know more about our Club is invited,as well.

     There will be up to five presenters and plans are to be done by 9:00 a.m. For more information or if you have any questions, please contact Membership Director Don Ferrell at 817-401-2500.
     One of RI President Ian Riseley has announced that he would like each and every Rotarian to plant a tree this year. It doesn't matter what kind of tree, or how big it is! Just plant a tree.

     Can you imagine the impact this would have on the world? If all 1.3 Million Rotarians plant a tree, the world will benefit from having Mother Nature help cleanse the air, create more oxygen, and beautify the Earth.

     At one point, we were considering purchasing seedling trees for our members, but the Board decided, after discussion, to have each individual member choose what type of tree, what size of tree, and where to plant the tree. 

     This time of year is great for planting trees, plus we would like our Club to be one of the first to be 100% in participation. We do have a few members who have offered to plant your tree for you if you need assistance.

      We need to have this project completed by March 31, 2018. 

     After you have planted your tree, please take a photo of you and your tree and send it to Dwayne Lee, Director of Administration. Please email the photo to:

Ways to do a "Make-up"
  1. Go to: https://www.rotaryeclubone.org/programs.htm and watch a video or read an article.
  2. Attend a Sunrise Rotary social event. (Christmas party and other Sunrise social gatherings)
  3. Work on a Sunrise Rotary project (flags,PhasedIn, Blood drive, Highland games, etc.)
  4. Attend a Sunrise Rotary Board meeting. (1st Tuesday, 7:00 a.m., David's BBQ)
  5. If you're in a travel status, get the Rotary Club Finder app for your smartphone and find a Club in/near the town you are visiting - even outside of the United States!
  6. Attend another local Rotary Club meeting. There are seven other Rotary Clubs in Arlington that you can make up at. Here's a list of them:
    • Arlington North Rotary, Monday at Noon, Texas Land & Cattle, N. Arlington
    • Arlington West Rotary, Tuesday at Noon, Shady Valley Golf Club
    • Arlington Highlands Rotary, Tuesday at 6 p.m., Dave & Busters in the                            Arlington Highlands
    • Arlington Sunset Rotary, Tuesday at 6 p.m., J. Gilligan's on E. Abram
    • Arlington Rotary, Thursday at Noon, 1st United Methodist Church
    • Arlington Great Southwest Rotary, Thursday at 6 p.m., Humperdink's @                        Six Flags
    • Arlington South Rotary, Friday at Noon, Spring Creek BBQ, S. Cooper
Here's the catch:

     You literally have a whole month in order to work your "make up" into your busy schedule - within 2 weeks prior to the meeting you will miss and within 2 weeks after the meeting you miss.

So you see, there really is no valid excuse  for you not having PERFECT ATTENDANCE.
 But there is one major step to ensure your make-up is validated - you must report it to Club Secretary Sheri Hall at  sherilhall@gmail.com.
