Club Stories
The Duck Derby 2020 looks different in this year of pandemic, but the Cross Timbers Rotary Club has not been deterred, selling more duck adoptions this year than either of the first two years of the event. As a result, 22,000 rubber ducks will “race” to the finish line on Saturday, September 19, 2020, at the River Walk in Flower Mound, and one lucky winner will take the $2,500 grand prize.
Due to the governor’s orders limiting outdoor gatherings, the ducks will be released at an undisclosed time to avoid a crowd. The club is asking everyone to watch the event online on the Cross Timbers Rotary Facebook page at 11:00am on September 19.  
Cross Timbers Rotary was founded in 2015 and the Duck Derby is the club’s major fundraiser, supporting more than 20 nonprofit organizations in the community, as well as international projects in developing countries. The organizations have been hit hard this year due to the pandemic, which means the support is needed more than ever.
The top 10 luck ducks to cross the finish line win a prize and first prize is $2,500!
Be a part of the 3rd annual Duck Derby “virtually” by following Cross Timbers Rotary on Facebook at and watching in at 11:00am Saturday, September 19, to see the ducks go over the waterfall and race to the finish line!

Thousands of Rubber Ducks Race at the River Walk to Benefit Local Charities
Duck season takes on a whole new meaning as the Cross Timbers Rotary Club hits the scene with its 2nd Annual Duck Derby as part of its Rhythms at the River Walk festival. Thousands of ducks will “race” to the finish on Saturday, September 21, 2019, at the Flower Mound River Walk, where one lucky winner will take the $2,500 grand prize.
The Rhythms at the River Walk is a family-friendly day full of activities centered around the Duck Derby. Festivities kick off at 8:00 a.m. with a 5K River Run, followed by a family-friendly River Walk at 10:30 a.m. and continue throughout the day until 3:00 p.m. The ducks hit the water at 1:00 p.m. for an exciting race down the river, and a first, second and third place winner will be plucked out of the water at the finish.
May 2015, a half-dozen civic leaders met in Flower Mound, Texas, a short drive (or long kickoff) from Dallas. Five were already Rotarians, but while they enjoyed their weekly meetings, they were itching to try some ideas of their own. “Meeting time, for one thing,” recalls Andy Eads, a Denton County commissioner whose energy level could power several suburbs. “Thursday at lunch wasn’t working for us.” 
The six founders wanted to get a jump on the workday, not stop in the middle for a lunch meeting. They discussed founding a club that would meet at 7 a.m. or even 6:30, but bank President Julie Meyer and a couple of other parents in the group said no. “We have to get breakfast on the table and kids off to school before we start serving humanity.” In the end, they settled on 8 a.m. Fridays – a breakfast meeting to start the day.
Next question: Who else should be in the club?
On the last weekend in March 2018, the Cross Timbers Rotary Club spent the weekend blitzing the community with service projects. This weekend is known as RAD, which stands for Rotary Action Days, and has become an annual event with this nearly three-year-old club.

Volunteers are needed this weekend and next to help build new homes for Fruitvale residents whose houses were destroyed by a tornado last April.

Tornadoes devastated the rural East Texas town on April 29, 2017 and local officials and mayors helped organize fundraisers for the victims, but then they wanted to do more to help them clean up and rebuild.

Flower Mound Mayor Tom Hayden came to a Cross Timbers Rotary Club meeting to tell them about the aid needed in Fruitvale, and David Eiland, owner of Eiland Construction, went with other members to help with the cleanup effort. They’re now working to restore homes for four families: donations went toward helping two to get new homes, and two more are being rebuilt.

Flower Mound Mayor Tom Hayden, along with the mayors of Argyle, Highland Village, and Lewisville, are joining with Habitat for Humanity and the Cross Timbers Rotary Club to help rebuild an East Texas town devastated by the April 29 tornadoes.

The  idea grew after Flower Mound Fire Chief Eric Greaser and Emergency Management Officer Brandon Barth dropped off the community’s gift cards in Fruitvale earlier this week and learned of a few residents who had lost their homes.

After Chief Greaser discussed what he had learned and witnessed in Fruitvale, Mayor Hayden was inspired to organize a project on a grander scale to help Fruitvale.



The Cross Timbers Rotary Club in Flower Mound held their first annual Rotary Action Days (RAD) weekend on Friday and Saturday.
The entire club membership spread out into the community helping nine local non-profits with hands-on service projects both large and small.
The club even gave the future Rotarians of our community the chance to serve with a lemonade stand in Parker Square during Saturday’s Farmers Market.


The Cross Timbers Rotary Club in Flower Mound is holding a community-wide garage sale this Saturday to raise money for flood victims in Louisiana and they need your donations.

Club members are supporting a school in an underprivileged area in the East Baton Rouge Parish School District that was hit hard by the flooding.

The club will accept yard sale item donations on the east side of Parker Square in Flower Mound at noon on Friday.

Cupcakes, sparkling cider, party favors, a mini-auction, and bacon can only mean one thing – the Cross Timbers Rotary Club is celebrating a milestone!

The Cross Timbers Rotary Club in Flower Mound received their official charter last August to begin a new club with 62 members. Now, one year and many service projects later, the club celebrates with 100 members and continued enthusiasm for “Service Above Self.”

As the Cross Timbers Rotary club celebrates its first anniversary, members paused during their weekly meeting on Friday to reflect on their many accomplishments and to prepare for an even more ambitious second year.
