Introducing 2021-2022 District Governor Mike and Andrea Groom 
Mike Groom was born in Austin, Texas and was raised in Houston, Texas. He is both a practicing certified public accountant (38 years) and lawyer (32 years). Mike currently resides in Mabank, Texas with his wife of 33 years, Andrea Myntti-Groom. Mike and Andrea have a son and daughter and two grandsons, all of whom they cherish deeply.
Mike has served as President of the Rotary Club of Cedar Creek Lake twice and in his second term, the Rotary Club of Cedar Creek Lake was awarded the Bill Campbell Award as the most outstanding club in District 5830. Mike joined the Rotary International in 1988.  He joined Rotary Club of Cedar Creek Lake in 1997 and has served in virtually every role in his club. Mike is a RI Foundation Major Donor, member of the Paul Harris Society and a Rotary Foundation Benefactor. Mike believes in community service and has served as a director in the North Houston Greenspoint Chamber of Commerce, Rotary Club of Cedar Creek Lake, Cedar Creek Non-Profit Housing, Inc. (Genesis Center), Henderson County HELP Center, the Henderson County Library and as a Trustee of the Presbyterian Hospital of Kaufman. He has also served as an officer and committee member for a number of community organizations.
Mike enjoys travelling, salt-water fishing, hunting in the Texas hill country, ranching and rooting for the Texas Longhorns.
DG Mike Groom's July Newsletter 
July is new leadership month and as we kick off our new Rotary year, I am mindful of all the wonderful leaders we have and have had here. IPDG Jack Welge and his team had a miraculous year, they carried us through the nightmare of COVID-19 by adapting to earth-shattering events and changing and finding new ways to keep us participating and involved. We cannot thank them enough. Another wonderful leader, PDG Robert J. Thompson from District 6170, inspired us on Saturday at our annual District Officer Installation to UNITE TOGETHER, whosoever and wherever, so that we can serve to better lives.  (Pictures taken at the event can be found on the District 5830 Photo Album .)

Our theme for the new year given to us by Rotary International President Shekhar Mehta is “Serve to Change Lives”. What an appropriate theme for this moment in time – it gives us inspiration and hope as we carry our Rotary banner forward.
Congratulation to PDG John Jetter 
The Rotary Foundation’s recognition of PDG John Jetter with the The Rotary Foundation Distinguished Service Award comes after PDG John's years of work on Club, District, Zone and International Projects. Time is always inadequate to appropriately thank a Rotarian with a heart for service.
Briefly the award recognizes those who have demonstrated exemplary service to the Rotary Foundation and have received the Citation for Meritorious Service at least 4 years prior.
On R I Awards requiring 11 areas of achievement, John is in the rarefied air of having achieved more than that required and more than the proposal for the award would allow.

Congratulation to PDG Tom DeWitt
PDG Tom DeWitt  receives "The Rotary Foundation Citation for Meritorious Service Award."   

The Citation for Meritorious Service recognizes individual Rotarians who have demonstrated outstanding, continuing active service to The Rotary Foundation for more than one year. Examples are:

•Service on Foundation committees at the club, district, or international level

• Participation in Foundation grants or programs

•Support of Ambassadorial Scholars, Rotary Peace Fellows, Group Study Exchange teams, or vocational training teams. (Financial contributions, however notable, are not relevant considerations.)

Congratulation Shalonda Adams and PDG Carroll Greenwaldt 
Club members Shalonda Adams and PDG Carroll Greenwaldt were the 2021 Unity Honors award recipients. The Unity Honors award is given by the Longview Unity and Diversity Committee and is a lifetime achievement award that recognizes the humanitarian efforts of those who are working at the forefront of diversity and equality in  our community.  The late Jimmy Isaac who was also a member of the Rotary Club of Longview was honored for his membership in and work with the Unity and Diversity Committee.
Membership Minute July 2021 
“HOW TO DOUBLE YOUR CLUB IN 60 MINUTES OR LESS” is the title of Henderson’s PE David Higgs’ pamphlet. My take: How a 20 member club added 20+ members in one fell swoop.
At the District Assembly, PE David was inspired to grow his club and took that opportunity to rope in co-conspirators PDG John Henson and PDG Carroll Greenwaldt. They planned and printed invitations for members to hand out to a special meeting, with the luncheon paid by the club.   Their officer installation on June 17th was their special meeting, but you can use any meeting for this invitation.  The goal was for each member to invite at least 5 guests that would make good members.
Invitation to Club Visioning
The Visioning Process has been widely implemented throughout Rotary to help individual clubs to establish long range plans that are in line with Rotary International’s global strategic priorities: “Increase our Impact, Expand Our Reach, Enhance Participant Engagement, and Increase Our Ability to Adapt”.

District Governor Groom, who is himself a trained and experienced Facilitator, is encouraging all District 5830 Clubs to conduct a Visioning Event over the coming year. To do so, please contact the District 5830 Visioning Chair, Sam Scroggins, via email at
