The Fort Worth Southwest Club has established a fun and heartwarming sistership with the Portlaoise Rotary Club in Portlaoise, Ireland.
The program team researched a global club that met at the same time as the Fort Wort Southwest club so that they could participate in a true joint meeting.  After considerable digging, they contacted the Portlaoise Rotary Club in Ireland and had their first joint meeting in November.  The Fort Worth club meets at noon on Thursday and the Irish club meets at 6 pm. Club secretary Jim Ervin noted that it was interesting to see the similarities and differences in practices between the clubs. 
The Ireland Club does not recite the four-way test at their meeting, but the clubs will be swapping banners by mail. The clubs and are now working to identify a project that they can do together and plan to continue to meet by Zoom in 2021.
