ROTARY CLUB OF TEMPLE-SOUTH - President: Patrick Guillen

Founded in 1983, the Rotary Club of Temple-South is a diverse group of men and women who represent a cross-section of the business and professional life of the community. The club has a proud history of supporting the community through hands-on service projects and through financial support. Organizations benefiting from financial contributions from the club include the Temple Literacy Council and the Temple Education Foundation. In partnership with Temple Fire & Rescue, Rotarians visit neighborhoods throughout Temple to install smoke detectors in homes that do not have one. To promote the health and welfare of our citizens, the club donated automated external defibrillators (AED) to support the city's public access defibrillation program and to save lives. The Ronald McDonald House in Temple was built, in part, with funds donated by the Rotary Club of Temple-South. On national holidays, Temple South Rotarians install American flags at the curbs of participating homes to promote patriotism and to raise funds the club uses to provide community support. Members of the club enjoy fellowship activities throughout the year in which family and friends can participate.
