Are you a Business or Professional leader in your community, seeking to make a difference in the world around you?
Rotarians are passionate people driven by the ideal of service. As a part of Rotary, you get to network with and give back to communities around the globe. District 5830 is made up of 41 clubs and over 1500 members across NE Texas, SE Oklahoma, and SW Arkansas.
Remember the old song “Make new friends and keep the old?” June is Rotary Fellowship Month. What a great way to make new friends from around the world and get your “old” Rotary friends to join you. There are fellowships for just about any interest you can imagine. I personally belong to the International Rotary Fellowship of Musicians and the Rotary Wine Appreciation Fellowship. I know we have members who are part of the International Fellowship of Flying Rotarians. Go to for more information. This would make a great club program!
A service to celebrate the life of PDG and Rev. Bill Hedges will be held in the Quitman First United Methodist Church sanctuary on June 19, 2023, beginning at 1:00 p.m.  A reception for family and friends will follow in J.O.Y. Hall. 
Rotarians, this note comes to you from 30,000 feet as Ava and I head to Melbourne for the Rotary International Convention.
Celebrating life as a Rotarian you truly owe it to yourself to attend one or more R I Conventions to completely immerse yourself in the Rotary Universe.
Besides developing new ideas for service, your presence can inspire others to further embrace the service they can provide with you as a mentor.

AG Landon Forbes, 2023-2024 D-5830 Membership Chair 

Some of our members may have served in the Armed Forces of the United States. To them and all connected to any military service, I want to THANK YOU for YOUR SERVICE, as we recently membered Memorial Day. One of the traditions of many service organizations was the “Hail and Farewell” where new folks were heartily greeted and departing members were bid a fond farewell. As outgoing Membership Chair for the District, I want to say a hearty WELCOME to your new DISTRICT MEMBERSHIP CHAIR LANDON FORBES.
