Raising Money the Easy Way

Based on actual results, intelligence, and intuition from implementing the Flag Lease Program, 'The Ulitmate Non For Profit Fundraising Project' is a manual for non-profit professionals and volunteers who want to implement their fundraising project to promote their cause.

Built upon the success of the Flag Lease Project, this summing-up manual provides practical, comprehensive guidance for non-profit fundraising universally. With tips and tools, knowledgeable advice, and real-applied insights from the actual project implementation, this healthy resource addresses the entire spectrum of patriotic fundraising for non-profits.

Texas History of Fun Facts. 
Texas has experienced the most number of tornadoes since 1950. On average, Texas experiences 120 tornadoes a year. A tornado can roar along as fast as 300 miles an hour. Kansas stands second on the list.

The Texas Rangers is the oldest statewide law enforcement agency in the U.S. It was established in 1823.

Armadillos are mammals that wear shells. Armadillo in Spanish means “little armored one”. The mammal has bony plates that cover the back, head, legs, and tail of most of these creatures. Out of the 20 varieties of armadillos, only one lives in the United States. The mammal can be found throughout Texas except in the Trans-Pecos. The shell on their bodies acts like armor and provides protection from predators.


You and your guest on Wednesday, June 29th beginning at 5:30 to 7:00 PM  are invited to the new officers and directors' installation. The ceremony will be held at The Heard Museum at 1 Nature Pl., McKinney, TX 75069 starting with a light happy hour menu.

Our program this week will feature Michael Tucker, from the Teen (CERT) - Community Emergency Response Team.

Teen CERT: Community Emergency Response Team

The Teen CERT training program teaches youth readiness and response skills. Hands-on practice and realistic exercises prepare youth for the unexpected in their community. Newly learned leadership skills will empower youth to safely respond to an emergency and assist victims without endangering themselves or others.

Bring a quest to the McKinney Sunrise Rotary Club

We light up for the Club meeting at 7:15 AM with socializing before the Club meeting starts; breakfast starts at 7:30 AM, and the business meeting begins at 7:55 AM. The formal meeting concludes at 8:30 AM. 
July 4th - Independence Day is our third  Flag Lease holiday of the flag season. Your help at the Shed on Thursday, June 20th  at 4:00 PM would be a great way to continue the flag season.
