Club of Marshall, TX

The Rotary Club of Marshall Texas met with District Governor Karen Maines at our meeting on October 12, 2023. We kicked off our efforts to help eradicate Polio just in time for World Polio Day which is on October 24. Members that were present showed their support by donating money to Polio eradication and wearing their End Polio Now bracelets.

ParadeOfFlagsIn August 2011 the Rotary Club of Marshall put out its first 86 flags for Labor Day and the remembrance of "9-11" (September 11, 2001). Since then we have put out approximately 5,000 flags at the Holidays over the last 7 years.

As a sign of our respect for the gallant men and women who serve our country in the military, our diplomats and staff who serve in harms way all over the world, as well as all of the Law Enforcement officers who protect us here at home; Rotary clubs across the nation recite the Pledge of Allegiance at every meeting.
