At its meeting on March 31, the Lewisville Morning Rotary club recognized five “vocational heroes” for their service to the Lewisville Community.

“As Rotarians, members are called to offer our vocational talents to provide opportunities and to work for the relief of the special needs and to improve the quality of life within the community [in which] they live,” read a press release issued by Rotary. “Also as Rotarians, we wish to raise up as a standard those members of our community who have demonstrated outstanding service to the community in their own chosen vocation.”

Rotary's 1.2 million members worldwide remain dedicated to volunteer community service, promoting high ethical standards in all vocations and furthering international peace. In addition to thousands of volunteer hours, each year Rotary contributes millions of dollars in humanitarian aid and relief around the globe, funds 1,000 scholars to study abroad and provides cross-cultural exchange for 7,000 young leaders.

Lewisville has two Rotary Club chapters. Lewisville Morning Rotary meets each Thursday morning, and Lewisville Noon Rotary meets each Wednesday at noon.
