Club News
It was 'grand'.  The special tour of the new construction sites at JJ Pearce High School had 10 of our Prestonwood Rotary members in awe!  We certainly don't remember a high school like this in our past.  Principal, Carrie Breedlove and  Assistant Principal, LeAndre Benton led us through the new space that opened up this year, including The Commons, a multi-purpose area (shown below), a music area with private practice rooms, and space for band and orchestra practice, graphic design, animation, and science to showcase the students and their work.
 
We all agree that this was a stellar experience.  We plan to go back after the opening of the new auditorium and other phases.
Congratulations to Richard Stern who is receiving his Paul Harris +2 pin from Glen Campbell as Gilbert Brown, Spencer Zeavin, and Ivan Bartolome look on,
Jake McMillen and Zack Bigley from the Frisco RoughRiders were welcomed at our meeting on February 7th.  Not only did we learn and lot about the RoughRiders but also the events going on at the RoughRiders  Field.  There were a lot of questions as well as a lot of speculation about upcoming players.  Thanks, Jake and Zack for making it a great program.  If you want to see more about what is going on, here is the link: Frisco RoughRiders | MiLB.com
During January and February, Prestonwood is working with two other organizations; The National Council of Jewish Women Dallas and The Dallas Founder Lions Club to collect rolling suitcases for Mosaic's Family Services.  This project has met with great success and at our Happy Hour on the 5th Wednesday in January, we gathered at Anayla's Scratch Kitchen to add to our collection.  If you have usable, rolling suitcases, please bring them to a Prestonwood Rotary meeting or send an email to info@prestonwoodrotaryclub.org to arrange pickup.

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.
