Lisa Nolley Dendy Supper Supportive Spouse District 5810

Super Supportive Spouse… What a wonderful year I have spent as the Super Supportive Spouse to my  exceptional, energetic, and inspiring husband, DG Bill Dendy.  We have enjoyed  participating in local, zone and international events as stewards of Rotary  International.  I am amazed at all of the “good” our clubs are doing at the local  level and also how those projects are amplified on a national and international  stage as we join Rotarians worldwide to Serve Humanity through our work with  Rotary. District 5810 has a generous tradition of supporting a cause which is special to  the spouse of the DG.   This year, I would like to personally thank the local  District 5810 Rotary Clubs who contributed to Our Friend’s Place which is local  DFW organization that helps young women break generational cycles of abuse,  neglect, poverty and homelessness.  Our Friend’s Place is dedicated to providing a strong foundation for girls and  young women to build from adversity by learning a self‐reliant approach to  their own development. Their Transitional Living Program provides homeless  young women, poverty‐stricken women, girls aging out of foster care, and  young women escaping abuse or neglect with supportive homes where they  can learn the skills they need for self‐sufficiency.   Our Friend’s Place empowers young women to break the generational cycles of  abuse, neglect, poverty and homelessness and become strong members of our  society…and maybe even future Rotarians and leaders within our community.
