Club News
Prestonwood Rotary's favorite October event is Law Enforcement Day. Twenty-five DPD officers, family members and other DPD associates were joined by AG John Johnstone (Rotary Club of Dallas Uptown) and AG Michael Callahan (Rotary Club of East Dallas), along with Prestonwood Rotarians to fill Cafe de France for this very special occasion.  This year we honored three officers: Senior Corporal Matthew Meltabarger, Senior Corporal Haydee Bowen, and Officer Gloriangelica Valencia.  Each officer received a plaque with their name and badge number for their distinguished Service Above Self, gift certificates for dining from local restaurants, a check and a thermal coffee cup.  
 
After the presentations, Deputy Chief Ismail of the East Division spoke to the group expressing his gratitude to Prestonwood Rotary for their continued service, honoring the DPD and to each officer for their service and accomplishments.

How We Give Back
 

Fighting Hunger & Feeding Hope

Prestonwood members packed and delivered to a TangoTab dropoff, individual pre-packed lunch bags. During the pandemic, this was a way of safely giving back to those who were in need.  This is an ongoing program and offers each organization a chance to End Hunger one action at a time.  
 

Providing Clean Water

Prestonwood Rotary partnered with The Rotary Club of Montego Bay to provide water containment tanks to five elementary schools in Jamacia. The tanks provide water storage that greatly assists with the daily functioning of the school including water for kitchen activities as well as the bathrooms.
 

Planting Trees in Our Community 

Shade in Texas is extremely important, especially for our youth.  PRC planted trees to providing shade a restful place for two local schools, Vogel Alcove and Prestonwood Elementary as well as a the non-profit, Equest.
