Dave McSpadden
Kenya Ambulance Project
Dave McSpadden is the Past District Governor from the Waxahachie Rotary Club.
 
Samwel Otieno founded a hospital in Kenya in 2014.  In December 2021, while seeking assistance for the hospital, he met fellow Rotarian and Waxahachie resident Dave McSpadden.  Working together, Otieno and McSpadden created the U.S.-based nonprofit arm of RTC to help raise funds for the hospital.
 
Currently the hospital needs an ambulance.
 
 
Read Across America at as part of the Read Across America Initiative.  
 
The Addison Midday Rotary Club helped celebrate Read Across America March 2, 2022 (Dr. Seus’ birthday) at George H. W. Bush Elementary School in Addison. Visitor restrictions limited our participation to five members, so we brought along a bunch of new books donated by individual club members! The school principal and teachers were in costume.
 
At the Regional Rotary PETS (President-Elect Training Session) items were gathered for victims of human trafficking.  The Addison Midday Rotary Club donated T-shirt’s and underwear.  AMRC President-Elect Jerry Allison collected the donations.
 
On January 26 the Addison Midday Rotary Club met with the Rotary Club of Wangen-Isny-Leutkirch (of Germany).  The meeting was virtual via Zoom.
The 2021-2022 AMRC President, Ben Wolber, grew up in Leutkirch, Germany.  He contacted his father in Leutkirch who put been in touch with members of the Wangen-Isny-Leutkirch Rotary Club.
 
The Wangen-Isny-Leutkirch Rotary Club meets at 7:00 on Wednesdays.  Addison Midday meets at noon on Tuesdays.  For this meeting only, the Addison Midday Club moved their meeting to Wednesday, but started their meeting at the usual time since there is a 7-hour difference between Addison, Texas and Wangen-Isny-Leutkirch, Germany.
 
Each club talked about themselves:  Topics included:
● Club History
● Dealing with COVID
● Partner Clubs
● Service Projects
● Fund Raising
● Social Activities
● Outlook
 
The AMRC wanted to know more about the Club Trips taken by the Rotary Club of Wangen-Isny-Leutkirch and the Rotary Club of Wangen-Isny-Leutkirch wanted to know more about the Four Way Test.
 
Both Club agreed it was a very enjoyable meeting.
Thanks to everyone for donating toys, books and games to the 'Bush Galleria' at G H W Bush Elementary School'.  And a special 'hats off' to Mary Jo for organizing this service project.
 
The school and the students were very appreciative of the donation.
 
Teachers and staff at GHW Bush Elementary School reward students with "Bush Bucks" when the student:
  • Helps out in class
  • Meets their (the student's) goals
  • Completes homework, etc.
  • Is observed doing the right thing in the cafeteria
  • Is walking quietly in the halls
  • Shows good leadership. 
The student uses the Bush Bucks to 'purchase' the items in Bush Galleria - the items have different prices. 
 
Bush students and their sponsor, Mrs. Thomas, meet to determine the 'price' for each item. 
 
Initial donations for Bush Galleria came from students at Greenhill and GHW Bush staff and students at Greenhill School, a coed independent day school for prekindergarten – Grade 12.
