On Tuesday, August 9, 2016, club members attended the Cedar Hill City Council meeting to honor the city government for helping us pull off another successful Head for the Hills Bike Rally for 2016.  Our current president Trish Deeds and last year's treasurer Larry Horner delivered the presentation.  Concurrently, city administration and members of the city council were handed figures and statistics pertaining to the Rally, including the following:

  • 1092 participants came from all over the country, with the majority of them from the DFW area; 
  • These amounts meant a 30% increase from last year's proceeds, and a 26% increase from last year's participants.  
The BIG CHECKS ceremony in which local charities are recognized as this year's recipients of the Bike Rally proceeds takes place at the August 22nd club meeting starting at 6:00 pm.

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.

India celebrates three years without polio
Throughout India and around the world, Rotary clubs are celebrating a major milestone: India has gone three years without a new case of polio. The last reported case was a two-year-old girl in West Bengal on 13 January 2011. To mark this historic triumph, Rotary clubs illuminated landmarks and iconic structures throughout the country with four simple but powerful words, "India is polio free."
