|Letter From The President|
What a great time to be part of
the Texas Louisiana Gulf Coast District.
I know you think that I’m referring to the weather, which is turning
very nice. But you would be wrong. I have had the opportunity to visit with many
clubs and many members, some for the first time. I am not done, so expect me to see every one
of you soon. I believe that we have core
strengths within our District that can only produce positive things for our
Given that, we all need to look into ourselves and decide what we can do
to make our organization better. To me,
better includes more members, more clubs, and more activities. I know that many of you, when asked, are
enjoying helping out on projects and committees. I cannot thank you enough. My challenge to you is to speak up and let
your own ideas be heard. It could be a
new fundraiser, a social activity, a membership drive idea, etc. The point is that unless we hear from you,
your idea cannot get our help.
I appreciate being your District President. Your District Board is here to help so do not
hesitate to reach out to us.
Your District President-Elect,
Mike Reichek, and I are busy looking for new leaders at the District
level. If you want to know more about
what that entails, please reach out to either one of us.

|America's Service Club
The National Exchange Club – a service organization with 700 clubs and more than 20,000 members throughout the United States and Puerto Rico – celebrated its 100th anniversary in 2011. Founded in 1911 in Detroit by business leaders who wanted to “exchange” ideas on making their community better, the Exchange Club moved its headquarters to Toledo in 1917.
Its core values – Family, Community and Country are held by each Exchange member with pride and commitment. For over one hundred years, Exchange Club volunteer efforts have supported the needs of the country and of local communities, making it the country’s oldest American service organization operating exclusively in this country.
|Exchange Covenant of Service|
Accepting the divine privilege of single and collective responsibility as life’s noblest gift, I covenant with my fellow Exchangites:
- To consecrate my best energies to the uplifting of Social, Religious, Political and Business ideals;
- To discharge the debt I owe to those of high and low estate who have served and sacrificed that the heritage of American citizenship might be mine;
- To honor and respect law, to serve my fellowmen, and to uphold the ideals and institutions of my Country;
- To implant the life-giving, society-building spirit of Service and Comradeship in my social and business relationships;
- To serve in Unity with those seeking better conditions, better understandings, and greater opportunities for all.
