The Rotary Club of Duncanville is proud to once again provide support to the Best Southwest Regional C.E.R.T. Program for its emergency preparedness training programs which are conducted within our communities.  Through a District Grant, our club gave a total of $4,000.00 for community-wide training programs in Duncanville, DeSoto, Cedar Hill, and Lancaster.  Being in our backyards gives us the best viewpoint on how to respond best and quickest to an emergency  The grant allows our Club to train four members as first responders in disaster or catastrophic events where immediate search and rescue, triage, and emergency aid is needed.  Funds are also used for equipment.

The Duncanville High School robotics team, lead by engineering and robotics teacher Bart Barton, demonstrated their search and rescue robot at our meeting last week.  It's amazing!  The remote control and camera allow it to enter hazardous structures without putting people in danger.

The new year of Early Act First Knight kickoff at Central Elementary School was great fun with Knights of the Guild Sir Cass and Sir William entertaining and inspiring the school children.  This gets the children ready for the daily instruction provided by EAFK and explains the rewards of virtues.  Last year the fall kickoff was also an exciting display by the knights.

Duncanville Outreach Ministries is in the process of expanding their facilities to accommodate more food in order to sever the growing needs of our community. The cost of the project is approximately $41,000. Our club donated $10,000 to the Building Fund. Anita Davis gave us a very informative look at Duncanville Outreach Ministries and how many families in Duncanville they serve. We were given a tour of the facility. Here, Anita is showing some of the seasonal item which are stored. The tour gave us an opportunity to see what a family might receive in the way of groceries. In addition to groceries, Duncanville residents are also able to receive assistance with prescription, rent, utilities and cancer patients receive gasoline card to aid them get to their treatments. We also received a tour of the Duncanville Outreach Ministries Thrift Store. They sell gently used and previously owned household items, books, clothing, shoes and more which have been donated by the community. They also sell "new" items such as toiletries, hair accessories, baby and adult diapers, household cleaning and more.
