Welcome to the homepage of the Metroport Rotary Club, a group of business professionals and service-minded community members.
 
Located in the heart of the fastest growing area of the DFW Metroplex, we serve the communities along the Highway 114 corridor, beginning at Southlake and continuing through Haslet.
 
These are the communities in which we live and work each day and we're always looking for new service-minded individuals to join us in our mission.
 
Why are we here?
To help make our communities, our country, and our world more peaceful and prosperous.
 
What do we do?  
  • Support local charities, physically and financially, to help them achieve their missions.  While we often work behind the scenes, the work of our community partners does not.  Whether its helping veterans transition back into civilian life or providing meals for area seniors, Metroport Rotarians are committed to "Service Above Self".
  • Develop tomorrow's community leaders by supporting and leading youth leadership programs.
    • Members facilitate an annual summer youth leadership program, RYLA
    • Our club holds a speech contest each spring for local high school students on the value of the Rotary Four Way Test (of the things we think, say and do).
    • We sponsor Rotary Interact service clubs at both Northwest High School and Westlake Academy
    • We provide scholarships for local graduating seniors based on school performance and community service
 
Want to learn more?
  • Visit a weekly meeting or one of our service projects.  You can find our upcoming events here.
  • Or if you would like to speak with one of us, send us a note and we'll be happy to answer questions and discuss opportunities.

Five years since its debut, Rotary Club Central is getting a big upgrade
When we introduced Rotary Club Central in 2012, it revolutionized goal tracking and planning for clubs and districts — no more filling out paper club-planning forms or passing along boxes of historical club information every time a new leader took office. Rotary Club Central offered clubs and districts a quantifiable way to begin measuring local and global impact, specifically membership initiatives, service activities, and Rotary Foundation giving. But as with any technological advancement, in a few short years, Rotary Club Central began to show its age, and Rotarians took notice. They...
Rotary International Board adopts new zone structure
At its January 2017 meeting, the Rotary International Board of Directors adopted a new zone structure for Rotary clubs. Rotary bylaws require the Board to complete a comprehensive review of the 34 Rotary zones no less often than every eight years to ensure that each zone has an approximately equal number of Rotarians. The Board’s previous review of the zones occurred in 2008. The Board earlier approved the creation of three regional workgroups to develop rezoning proposals for Asia, Europe/Africa, and the Americas. These workgroups comprised one representative (either a current director,...

Convention: Southern hospitality
The Atlanta Host Organization Committee is offering some good old-fashioned Southern hospitality at the Rotary International Convention from 10 to 14 June. It has planned a wide range of activities featuring everything from good food and music to inspiring tours of local landmarks. If it’s your first convention, these events are chances to meet fellow Rotarians from around the world, and if you’re an experienced convention goer, you can catch up with old friends. Hall of Fame baseball player Hank Aaron will host Rotarians for a “Strike Out Polio” night at the new SunTrust Park, where you’ll...
Member spotlight: The power of the press
When Teguest Yilma helped found the Rotary Club of Addis Ababa Entoto in 2002, she thought polio had already been eradicated from most of the world. But while Ethiopia had been free of the disease, Yilma was shocked to learn that new cases had started cropping up in surrounding countries such as Somalia. “I was thinking, it’s not possible, we can’t be free if the countries around us are not free,” she says. Yilma, the managing editor of Capital, Ethiopia’s largest English weekly newspaper, has brought a journalist’s skills to the fight against polio. She became vice chair of the Ethiopia...
