The Rotary Club of Fort Worth South is pleased to announce the availability of community grants to non-profit organizations from the club’s Fort Worth Foundation. This year, the club is focusing on the needs of Veterans. Grants are available to support educational, medical, socio-economic, mental health, housing or other needs of Veterans and their families. 
As Rotarians, we must adjust to our “new normal” as this unprecedented environment evolves. We are a People of Action and have a rich history of “Service Above Self”. I believe we can help our community by following the guidelines and instructions given by President Trump, Governor Abbott, and Mayor Price, to limit non-essential travel, avoid gathering in groups, and maintain a six foot distance between others until the infection rate reduces to a manageable level. Our club has historically been active supporters of Carter Blood Care which has a critical need for at least 700 donations in the next 5 days. I encourage eligible members to donate blood at the Hulen or Rosedale donation center in lieu of meeting this week. I donated Wednesday at the Rosedale location and felt very safe. I believe we can do this and demonstrate our service to the community and set an example to those around us. 
Dwayne Jose, World War II B-26 pilot and member of our Club since 1995, spoke at our Rotary Club today. He’s had a long career in aviation and traveled to 56 countries.

Our March 20 was a presentation by Mark Fox of the National Weather Service in Fort Worth. Mark gave us a history of the Weather Service noting that Fort Worth was the site of the FIRST Weather Radar in the US. Mark also showed the progression of Weather Radar to present day, noting that while the radar and forecasting has changed the storms have not. #JoinConnectStay

On Dec. 5 Robert Holman introduced Principal Angeles Gonzalez, Special Education Teacher Brittany Williams, and Second Grade Teacher Lauryn Martin from RJ Wilson Elementary. Principal Gonzalez has worked closely with the Club on the iPad project and the two Teachers were receiving recognition for their efforts. #RCFWS #JoinConnectStay
 
Our program on Dec 5 was brought by Catholic Charities. Johanna Brewington and Ruth Braser explained their program to: CREATE Solutions, ERADICATE Barriers, TRANSFORM Communities to enhance the lives of their Clients. #RCFWS #JoinConnectStay
