The Club were delighted to virtually welcome to the Club meeting Monday 15 March the President of Keller Rotary Club, Texas Jackie Black. President Jackie pointed out her father's ancestors are from Antrim County and she was able to visit Belfast about 20 years ago. She advised Keller is in north east Texas about 20 minutes west of DFW airport, right between Dallas and Ft. Worth and has 44,000 people and 2 Rotary Clubs - they have 55 members. President Jackie revealed she has been a Rotarian for 13 years, will be serving 18 months as President and she is reaching out virtually to other clubs she finds very interesting.
She advised that they have several fundraising events a year notably a golf tournament and their Field of Honour when they display 1776 flags on the grounds of the Town Hall on Veterans Day PIC . They also have service projects most recently providing clothes for the homeless and supporting the local Ronald McDonald Home. She advised that Texas is now open and they are meeting mostly in person with 3-4 only still online. (picture sent by President Jackie)
