Join us on Friday to hear Bob May speak.

Bob May is an Author, Speaker, Baseball Historian. Bob has a series of talks (secular or faith based) that honors the great ball players from the Black Ball Era (Negro Leagues or segregated baseball). Bob has given over sixty baseball talks in six states.

This summer (2019), Bob has researched where all the National Baseball Hall of Fame players were born. His first talk is on the players born in Texas. Next summer when he will be in the New England states for eight weeks, he will give talks on the Hall of Fame baseball players born in New England!

Bob is willing to travel. Do you know of any groups willing to pay travel expenses to other parts of the USA? Bob will create talks for specific geographic areas. He would need 4 weeks to create specific geographic baseball talks.

Bob has always been passionate about baseball and baseball board game simulation. When he was seven years old (summer of 1949), his Dad took him to his first baseball game at Fenway Park in Boston to see the New York Yankees play the Boston Red Sox. He has been a baseball fan, ever since.

In July 2012, he published his first book, The Best Season โ€“ The First Ninety Games honoring Black Ball through baseball game simulation. This is the first book of a two book series. The second book, The Best Season โ€“ The Challenging Finish was published in August 2017.

He has lived in Rockwall since 2000 with his English wife, Michele. They celebrated their 52nd anniversary, November 2018. They have three children and eight grandkids. Bob is a Substitute Teacher in Rockwall ISD.

Dr. Given Kachepa, Currently a dentist in North Dallas. Given Kachepa came from Zambia Africa in 1998 to sing with the Zambian Acapella Boys Choir 2. Given Kachepa Sang for 2 years with a ministry called TTT (Teaching Teachers to Teach) partners in Education based in Sherman, Texas. The purpose for the singing was to raise funds for Zambian school children, funds to build schools in Zambia, Africa and get an American education in return for him. TTT partner was dismantled in the year 2000 and was charged with labor trafficking by the American government. Given Kachepa along with his other 12 choir mates received a T-visa (Trafficking Visa) which allowed him to go to school. Dr. Kachepa graduated from Grapevine High School in 2005, The University of North Dallas in 2009, and Baylor college of Dentistry 2015. While his passion is dentistry, Dr. Kachepa has spoken out against human trafficking for more than 15years. He loves educating the public about human trafficking and making sure that trafficking does not happen to one more person in the world. Come hear his story and hope that you will learn something about modern day trafficking.

A very exciting time for us today! NOT meeting at the Ruthe Jackson Center but rather at Dubiski High School.

All the Club's hard work...Janelle and Dr. Hull's vision...all coming together! We will see two elementary schools at the Dubiski Dental School Friday. This will be the first time where students get their exams and sealants at the same time. The first school arrives at 9:00 am and the second at 11:30 am. We want to greet them upstairs in the dental area and give them a Rotary gift. Join us!!

We will have lunch in the cafe at noon (Thank you Linda Ellis!). If you can't come earlier at one of the times above to greet the students you can go up to the dental area after lunch to see our dental sealant program in action!
