"Welcome to Arlington North Rotary, The Friendliest Club in Town!"

 

That's what you'll hear at the beginning of each ANR meeting.

We serve our local community in several way, each year we award 5 scholarship to graduating seniors at Lamar High school, we personally hand out more than 1,000 dictionaries to the third graders at the 9 North Arlington Elementary Schools in AISD and make donations to there library funds for new books each school year; we deliver Meals on Wheels each Thursday to shut-ins in East Arlington, we are committed to giving our blood, sweat and tears (literally) at regular blood drives; we send 2 high-schoolers to RYLA The Rotary Youth Leadership Awards camp each summer; we provide camper-ship funds to one of the local Boyscout troops to allow our youth to experience the growth and fun of camping, we have adopted the new Jones Academy to help start teacher and student support programs, we also do teacher appreciation days for our Junior high and High school teachers and helped out with Nichols Junior Highs music and drama programs in the spring of 2015. 

ANR provides additional youth leadership through our: 4-Way Test Speech Contest at Lamar High; close relationship with Leadership Arlington; financial support to UTA's Rotaract Club; and sponsorship of pending short-term AND long-term applicants for Youth Exchange.

In the past, we've completed a local and international Rotary grant to fund the construction of a lagoon for fish breeding, where the people of the mountain community of Los Higos, Jacagua, Santiago, Dominican Republic can obtain food for 100 families, which is a joint project with the Rotary Club of Los Higos, Santiago Gurabito, Helped send 2 Ambulances to a poor community in Mexico for the Red Cross to use, sent wheelchairs to the imfirmed in Mexico and the Dominican Republic, recent redid one of the a families dorm rooms at the Arlington Life shelter, donated computer to Hope Tutoring plus much more.

Our members contribute to The Rotary Foundation and our members have donated nearly $145,000 since the club inception.

ANR members also expect to donate about 10 wheelchairs this year through the Wheelchair Foundation.

But, ANR is more than service! To scratch our fellowship itch, we set aside each Fifth Monday every 3 months to have a special evening social function with our families.

How does ANR do all this? We are always looking for high-quality new members to help us serve the community. .While we're always sad to see some old favorites go, it's nonetheless refreshing to be re-invigorated with the ideas and enthusiasm of our new members.

How else? ANR has one (very, very effective) fundraiser: our flag program, in which our members put out approximately 1000 flags six times a year to our subscribers in the North Arlington Area.

So, start your week right with a Monday make-up at ANR and see what makes us The Friendliest Club in Town. Perhaps you'll be the co-winner of our Ace of Spades raffle, which has The Wheelchair Foundation as its co-winner.

We invite you to take a look around our site and find out more about our Club and about Rotary.

Yours in Rotary,
