Moore Rotary Club completes Service Project.

The Moore Rotary Club application for a district grant submitted in 2023 was selected. After months of planning, ordered, and preparing sites to display American flags, the club was finally ready to install the first set outside of the Moore Chamber of Commerce.
The Moore Rotary Club decided the purpose of the grant proposal and the club president, Carla Krueger, prepared and submitted the grant to be reviewed by a committee with Rotary District 5770. The grant included the purchase of American flags to be proudly displayed in select areas around the City of Moore. The timeline for the project began last year to include site selection and approval from the City of Moore. It took time to research appropriate sites, the proper way to display and remove the flags, and where to order the flags. Each member of the Moore Rotary Club took part in some aspect of this project. After some production delays, the American flags finally arrived. Members were excited and showed up to place the first flags out by the Moore Chamber of Commerce.  A partnership with a local Boy Scout group will assist in displaying the flags during future American holidays.

What's up with Wristworld

What's up with Wristworld

Its hard to imagine that these bunch of middle schoolers would be where they are now. They are in OnCue, they were the youngest ever to show at the International Toy Fair, they made their own commercial and ran it during the Miku Expo Online and boy did that take them to another level. We are thrilled to have had a front seat view of all they have been able to accomplish. Visit to learn more about them and the products they sell and are continuing to develop.

Lunch with our Senior Citizens

We had a great lunch with our senior citizens at the Brand Center. It is always great to sit still and listen. There are many stories to be told and friends to make. We look forward to going back. 
The Brand Center was built in 1994 and since then has been providing a meeting place for local senior citizens. They have activities of all kinds and Monday through Friday lunches. The Brand Center also serves those that are home bound with their meals on wheels program. The Senior Shuttle bus is also managed through the Brand Center.

Infant Crisis Services

At our July 26th meeting, we hosted Miki Farris and Tim Brennan from Infant Crisis Services. Infant Crisis Services began in 1984 as a Sunday school class and has now grown to be an impactful organization serving 23 counties in Oklahoma. In 2022, ICS helped feed and diaper 21,036 babies and toddlers  - 8,964 of those were served by the BabyMobile at 54 different locations in those 23 counties.
The BabyMobile has allowed them to increase their outreach. The BabyMobile comes to Moore once a month to the Cleveland County Health Department at 4th and Eastern. Clients can receive services up to 4 times a year from birth until the baby's fourth birthday. In their 2023 fiscal year, they have served 234 babies and toddlers in Moore alone.

Do Things That Matter

 My work, my relationships, my beliefs, my goals and my dreams all stem from a desire to do   things that matter.

 That’s why I started Benali.

 At Benali, we educate, equip, and empower businesses so they can do the same for their   customers.

 I believe we bring value that matters to businesses and helps them grow. More than revenue   growth. Growth as a team, as individuals, as leaders, and as helpers. Growth in confidence, in   organization, and in clarity. Growth that is both tangible and intangible.

 But there are many other things I believe that matter.

I believe in a flexible work schedule and the freedom to work in a way that suits us best. That’s why all of our employees at Benali are remote. So we can work our best, but also be our best. The best employee/spouse/parent/child/friend/individual we can be.

I believe in doing and sharing what you love and what you are passionate about. That’s why every Spring I adjust my work schedule to coach soccer for the Norman North High School Men’s Soccer team. It’s an opportunity for me to leave an impact on players the same way that the coaches, parents, and community in Norman, OK left an impact on me.

I believe in giving others opportunities and teaching them how to believe in themselves. That’s why I make time to mentor others and provide internships for students at Benali. Anyone that is willing to do the work with a desire to learn should never be denied an opportunity.

I believe the biggest risk you can take is not taking any risks at all. That’s why I’m constantly trying to push myself and my team outside of our comfort zones. It’s what allows us to be challenged in our work and learn new things each and every week.

My dream is to help others do things that matter by educating, equipping, and empowering them.

I hope that you’re doing things that matter.
I hope that you live what you believe.
I hope that you’re pursuing your dreams.

If you ever want to talk about things that matter, your beliefs, or your dreams, I love to have those conversations.

Connect with me and let’s talk.

Khalil Benalioulhaj

2020 Moore Rotary Scholarship Recipients

Three high school seniors receive scholarship

This was another year of tough decisions. The club has the tough decision to select just one outstanding senior from each high school in Moore. During the year each high school had a senior student attend a Moore Rotary lunch meeting each month to talk about their accomplishments, future goals, and volunteer service. The students selected for the 2020 Moore Rotary Scholarship are representative of our motto "Service Above Self". Read more about these amazing students.

Kalan, served in a leadership role as the Reporter for Moore FFA. As a leader she demonstrated how much she cared about the organization and the people involved. Kalan extended her passion for helping others by getting involved with Special Olympics to help out as much as she could. One of her best experiences was attending the Make Promises Happen camp because it was centered around community service and supporting students with special needs. Her plans are to continue her education to become an occupational therapist, study ASL and have her own practice one day.

Jackeline has a creative talent as a videographer. In Digital Media Production class she had a hand in filming and editing many memorable school events. When she wasn't at Southmoore High School events she was leading an academic organization, ACTNow. Through the organization she founded, she has supported south Oklahoma City high school students with ACT prep, college applications, and scholarship essays every week. She also served as a teacher's assistant at Oakridge Elementary School. Jackeline believes a good leader should act with purpose and consider the well-being of their community. She has been admitted into the President's Community Scholars program at the University of Oklahoma. She aspires to become an elementary school teacher so she can give back to her community and allow students of color to feel represented in education. Jackeline is truly a person of action.
image of WHS scholarship recipient
Landon stated "A leader that doesn't promote themselves but rather builds up the people around them are the greatest of leaders." He followed through by example. Landon was very active as the captain of the swim team, student council Senator, FCA officer, National Honor Society member, Native American Club member and participated in numerous leadership programs at the school and district level. His community involvement includes work with the Regional Food Bank, Moore Love Campaign, Stop Hunger Now and being on the sound team for St. Andrews United Methodist Church. Landon has verbally committed to swim for the University of Saint Mary in Kansas. He will be a member of Jayhawk ROTC and serve as an officer in the National Guard. His degree will be in education and hopefully come back to teach in Moore Public Schools one day.

Tammy Vaughan meets Rotary on Zoom

Posted on Apr 29, 2020

Tammy Vaughan met with Moore Rotary Club via Zoom to provide an update about The Brand Center. Although COVID-19 has restricted social contact with regular visitors, they have found ways to continue connecting and supporting seniors citizens in the Moore community. Tammy was happy to share an update about the work of Aging Services and the Brand Center. She praised the efforts of Barbara Dillard to continue working to offer meals every day of the week. They have been averaging about 800 more meals than normal, adding up close to 7900 meals. Right now they are still offering anyone over the age of 60, free meal delivery. A pantry is also available. 
Tammy stressed how grateful they have been to all the supporters and volunteers. They have had about 17 new volunteers assist every day. Every Monday they spend time preparing for the volunteers so they can make deliveries. They have also continued to make daily calls and wellness checks. It is incredible how much support has been given during this time, especially from OG&E, MPS, and several churches in the area.
Moore Rotary Club has committed to providing gas gift cards for the volunteer drivers to use. They hope to be able to open the middle of June to slowly start offering additional services. If you are interested in helping out, Tammy has requested donations of individual snack items and masks. She can be reached at 321-3200.
