Wednesday Rotarians Welcomed Constance Rougier to Texas!  Constance is a Rotary Foreign Exchange Student from France.  She will attend school, tour Texas, and improve her English while she is here.  Constance came to the meeting on the 22nd with her host dad, Jeff Murray, and her host sister Allison.  Allison is fluent in French.  She returned in July from her Rotary Foreign exchange in Belgium.  

Thursday's meeting included a presentation by Wylie Chief of Police John Duscio.  Chief Duscio's mission to engage community churches and service organizations to aid those in need right here in Wylie inspired all of us.  We are fortunate to have his leadership here in our community.  In addition to the program we had Stephen Tykowski tell us about his fund raising efforts for Childrens Medical Center.  Last year he raised over $800.00, and I hope our club will help him achieve that again this year!
