Speaker 5-15-2019
One of our very own Rotarians was our speaker on Wednesday, 5-15-2019.  Dr. Michelle Martz brought our program discussing her chiropractic and natural wellness practice.  She provided very insightful advice on nutrition and natural wellness methods and techniques prompting great discussion and thought.  Pictured above is Dr. Martz with a staff member and LNR President Melissa DeWitt.
Grant Donations 5-15-2019
One of the greatest parts of our Rotary Club is the ability to fulfill grant requests to a number of non-profits in the area.  At Wednesday's meeting, 5-15-2019, the club presented checks to PediPlace (Larry Robins accepting) and LEF (Connie Pelphrey accepting).  Bill Collins chairs the committee who reviews grant requests and arranges for representatives to come to a meeting to receive the donation.  Pictured in the first photo above is Melissa DeWitt, LNR President; Larry Robins, and Bill Collins.  Pictured in the next photo is Melissa DeWitt, LNR President; Connie Pelphrey, and Bill Collins.
May 2019 - Student of the Month
Once again, Dr. Kajs brought us an incredible student of the month in Matthew Jimenez.  Matthew is especially dear to the club as he is the current president of the LHS Interact club.  Pictured above is Melissa DeWitt, LNR President; Dr. Buddy Bonner, LISD Assistant Superintendent; Matthew Jimenez, and Dr. Jeffrey Kajs, LHS Principal.
Planting the Seed of Service!
The Lewisville Noon Rotary chartered a new Interact group on Tuesday, May 7, 2019 at the LHS Killough campus.  In a short ceremony, LNR President Melissa DeWitt presented the official charter to the new club along with a banner and their bell.  The ceremony was attended by 19 students, 2 teacher/sponsors and 8 Rotarians.  Who knows what seeds were planted this day in the minds of young students learning about Rotary and its commitment to community.  This Interact club is especially dear to the club's hearts as the school's namesake, Doug Killough, was a member of the Lewisville Noon Rotary Club.  LNR is affiliated with Rotary International with 1.2 million members in over 200 countries and territories around the world.  For more information, go to
E.Y.E.R. Award
Lewisville Noon Rotary received recognition at the District 5790 Conference held on Saturday, April 27, 2019.  Our club was cited as having 100% participation in 'Every Rotarian, Every Year', meaning that we average giving $100 each year per member Rotarian.  It's a great accomplishment and a testament to the leadership efforts by our Rotary Foundation Chairman and President-elect, John Kazor (pictured to the left above).  Melissa DeWitt, LNR President is pictured above presenting the banner to John Kazor.  Well done, John!
Vocational Award
Our Vocational Service Award was presented to Shari Mayes, a teacher and mentor at Lewisville High School.  Ms. Mayes was named Teacher of the Year at LHS and is in the running for Teacher of the Year for LISD.  Pictured above is Melissa DeWitt, Rotary President; Ms. Shari Mayes, Award Winner; and Dr. Jeffrey Kajs, LHS Principal.
Circle of Friends/Grand Ball
On March 27, 2019, Mary Jennings brought our program on the 'Circle of Friends' and the upcoming 'Grand Ball'.  Rotary has participated monetarily and serves supper to students and parents for the past 25 years.  
Strategic Planning Survey Results
So grateful to have Gene Davenport and John Pokorny at last Wednesday's meeting to go over the results of the survey for our future strategic plan.  There were some very interesting results of the survey and our club will need to analyze those results to decide what they mean to us for the future.  Any member can see the results on our website by clicking the blue RESULTS button in the top right-hand corner of the opening page of our site.  Thanks to all who participated!
