Letter From The President

  I want to wish Happy New Years to everyone in the Texas Louisiana Gulf Coast District.  I trust everyone had wonderful holidays with family and friends but now that the holidays are behind us, it’s back to the business of Exchange!  

I can’t believe the year is already half over and we still have lots to get done!

  Your District Board is working hard planning for a number of upcoming events, including our National Convention (coming to Houston!) in July.  Houston has not hosted the National Convention since 1973 and we are determined to make it the best Exchange has had in recent memory! It will be an “All Hands on Deck” event so let’s talk about how you want to be involved! 

But don’t forget, we have a District Convention coming up in June too!

  If you have never attended an Exchange convention, (and even if you have) we’re having a “two-fer”..…close to home! You will come back better informed, more enthusiastic and remembering why you joined Exchange in the first place… “havin’ fun & doin’ good”.  Mark your calendars now!  Both of these conventions are events not to be missed and normal travel costs to attend a convention will never be less.  We are even having a raffle where you can win a full National Convention attendance package including a 4-night stay at the Houston Hyatt Hotel & VIP transportation, plus other prizes too!  Check it out & Buy on-line at www.tlgcd.org.

  RODEO Week is coming too!  Get out your western duds and join National President Dan McQueeny and First Lady Caroline for some fun and  GIVEAKIDAFLAGTOWAVE! So mark your calendars for February 27 & mosey on down with your Exchange partners for a Rodeo kick-off good time!

  A lot is happening so I’ll keep it short but I always want to say THANK YOU! for all you do in the name of Exchange to inspire your community to be a better place to live as we realize our vision of a strong America, safe communities & unified people!

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.
