This year on November 18th, 2017, the two Rotary Districts of 5810 (Dallas area) and 5790 (Ft. Worth area) held our “Foundation Festival” (Party) and the Rotary International President, Ian H.S. Risley was our guest speaker. With our two Rotary Districts doing the “Governors’ Challenge Blood Drive” for the past 17 years, it was a great time to thank our Rotary International for supporting our Rotary Action Group, present him with his very own GNBD cape. 
Thanks to Carter Blood Care (V-P, B.J. Smith) and PDG Charles Kurtzman for doing a great RUSH job to get President Risley’s Cape to GNBS’s President (Daniel K. Long, Sr.) in time for this event. President Risley is invited to stop by the GNBD Booth at this year's Rotary International Convention in Toronto.
