Help us in welcoming Leslie started her career as a Park Ranger Aide at a city park in Hampton, Virginia. The park consisted of 450 acres of unique, and rich wetland areas.  Her next move was to work for the National Forest Service as a forestry technician at the Coconino National Forest.  The experience she gained there helped her move on to the National Park Service in Florida. While she worked at Canaveral National Seashore as an Interpretive Park Ranger, she was able to develop leadership skills. After working for the Bureau of Land Management for 6 years, Leslie came back to the National Park Service as a Chief of Interpretation and Resource Manager.  It is a sense of pride that Leslie is a public servant.

Message from President Chris Ryan

Being part of the Del Rio Rotary Club is a unique experience. I have served and volunteered with other organizations, but none compared to the outstanding individuals and the amazing goals and actions of the Del Rio Rotary Club. There is truly an amazing feeling when you are surrounded by Fellow Rotarians whether it’s a meeting, volunteering or speaking about Rotary. You are always welcomed without judgement, bias, or discrimination. All Fellow Rotarians show the importance of love for one another and the community. If you analyze every comment said, every word shared and every action. You will see how the motto of “Service Above Self” is in everyone. As you see the changing of the gavel, the appreciation for members and the
laughs, you can only hope that each and every one of us give as much as the previous and give more than the next.
This week’s guest speaker will be Dora Alcala with The International Good Neighbor Council (IGNC). Mrs. Alcala is the Former Mayor of Del Rio, an active member of the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, and an active member and former President of the IGNC. Mrs. Alcala will be speaking about the International Good Neighbor Council and Fiesta de Amistad.
