The Cross Timbers Rotary Club recently spent a weekend “blitzing the community with service projects.”
Rotary Action Days has become an annual event for the nearly three-year-old club, and during the last weekend of March, most of the 109 members of the local organization got involved in at least one of the 10 projects.
Members repaired fences and installed shelving inside the storage facility at an animal rescue shelter, painted rooms at the local YMCA, stuffed more than 2,000 Easter eggs for an egg hunt for children with disabilities and volunteered at an egg hunt for the young children of families in crisis and homelessness, among other projects.
The largest RAD project was volunteering for the Children’s Advocacy Center for Denton County Annual Gala. The group served with wine, helped with checkout, passed hors d’oeuvres and purchased tables.
The Cross Timbers Rotary Club represents the communities of Argyle, Bartonville, Copper Canyon, Double Oak, Flower Mound, Highland Village, Lantana and Lewisville.
