Club Stories
 
Club member and Club President Elect (2019-2020), Jeanie McPherson, attended the Lone Star President Elect Training Seminar (LSPETS) held on the Hyatt Regency Hotel at the DFW International Airport. LSPETS is the premier training event that prepares Rotary Club President Elects for their year of service as President of their Rotary club.
 
Club member and Past District Governor (2010-2011), César M. Caro, has been selected to serve as the 2021 - 2022 Rotary Lone Star President Elect Training Seminar Operating Chair. Lone Star PETS or LSPETS is the premier training event that prepares Rotary Club President Elects for their year of service as President of their Rotary club in Texas and Southern Oklahoma. Lone Star PETS is the combined efforts of ten Rotary International Districts. They all converge on the Hyatt Regency Hotel at the DFW International Airport to jointly provide the best possible training for future Presidents of Rotary clubs.
RI President-elect Barry Rassin’s theme for 2018-19, Be the Inspiration, asks Rotarians to inspire change in the world and in each other. “I ask all of you to Be the Inspiration to help Rotary move from reaction to action — to take a hard look at the environmental issues that affect health and welfare around the world and do what we can to help.”
 
One of the things I appreciate most about serving as president of Rotary International is the people I get to meet. Much of my time is spent traveling and visiting Rotary clubs around the world. A Rotarian welcome is something quite special. But let me tell you, there's nothing so warm as the welcomes that have been rolled out for me by Rotaractors. These are young people who are committed to Rotary ideals, who are pouring their hearts into service, and who, in the process, don't forget to have fun.
