Letter From The President

    I hope this newsletter finds you all happy and  healthy and enjoying the Holiday Season with your family and friends.

   Our district is doing well!  We have overall growth with our existing clubs and are looking forward to adding our first collegiate club at The University of Houston in late January!  If you know anyone attending The University of Houston – Central Campus, please let them know! 


   There are a few clubs struggling with retention of their existing members and we want you to know that your district board is here to help.  Please let us know if would like us to help you work on a strategy to retain your current members and recruit new members.


  We are excited to announce an upcoming District Business Directory for anyone interested in promoting their business to other Exchangites!  Please see the article in this newsletter for more information.


   I hope you are all planning to attend the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo Parade on Saturday, March 4th to Give-A-Kid-A-Flag-To-Wave!  If you have not joined us before, please do so this year!  It is a fun event and a great way to get to know Exchangites from other clubs and meet the National President, Elizabeth Grantham.  A Rodeo Party is planned for that evening that all Exchangites are invited to attend.  Cost will be $10/person and will include food, drink and entertainment.  It will be held at the ESCAPE Family Resource Center, located at 2410 Hamilton in Houston. More detailed information will be sent to your club soon.


   I’ve enjoyed visiting your clubs but still have several I have not made it to yet.  Please contact me and let me know when you would like me to visit your club.  Also, include me on your newsletter distribution list or send me information on your upcoming events. My email address is debbie@dthou.comThank you for all you do for your communities.  I look forward to seeing you soon.

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.
