Dallas-Uptown member Will Carlton shows his moves during our August 18th meeting. We all knew Will is fun, smart, nice, and had an affinity for trash management, but most of us had no idea that he is a National West Coast Swing Dance Champion! His presentation was definitely a treat! (But, Will, we still want to hear about trash.) 
 
 

 
Dallas - Uptown is so lucky to sponsor Booker T. Washington School for the Performing and Visual Arts' Interact Club.

Today, the Dallas-Uptown Club held an important Club Work Day. Members get to share ideas and needs concerning various projects for the entire meeting time. These Work Days are very important opportunities for members to see who is doing what, where we are, and how we can help each other. Even visitors get involved in the discussion!!!

Recently two of our scholarship recipients completed their week at Camp RYLA (Rotary Youth Leadership Awards) leadership camp.  The Rotary Club of Dallas Uptown provides two scholarships each year, one inspired by and funded by club member, Alicia Slay, the A. Slay Annual RYLA Scholarship, and the other by the members of Uptown Rotary.  The clubs of Rotary International District 5810 provide scholarships for over 180 high school juniors to participate in the six-day leadership camp. At the end, the most common review by campers proclaimed it a “life changing“ experience. RYLA is a leadership program coordinated by Rotary Clubs across the globe.
