Dallas-Uptown member, Owen Devlin, recently returned from a week in Nicaragua with the first shift of Rotarians participating in the Heart of Service mission trip. Owen showed pictures and recounted many of the team's adventures. During the mission, they installed two water towers, painted several schools, provided school supplies, and did a good amount of touring. It sounds like they had an excellent and very Rotarian time! Also, today we celebrated Dr. Gary Kindley's achievement of a 3rd Paul Harris Fellow award. Mazel Tov, Dr. Gary, and thank you for that big smile!

Dallas-Uptown Rotarians and guests learned some very important tips on how to plan for technology needs from expert John Tarkington. Really important stuff in this day and age of new and emerging technologies!!! Also, we welcomed guests from Italy, Venezuela, and Dallas. Plus, a visiting Rotarian from Taiwan!
Today was a busy club work day for Dallas-Uptown. We have a lot of members with irons in the fire for the upcoming months: Dictionary project, Heart of Service project in Nicaragua, membership drive, new officer training, and Men Who Cook, to name a few! We also welcomed three guests to our meeting.
