Mesquite Rotary acting president John Taylor presented a donation of $5,000 to support the work of Sharing Life Community Outreach at the club’s meeting on May 7th.  Sharing Life’s Executive Director and CEO Teresa Jackson accepted the check, and expressed her gratitude for the funds that will assist area families in need.
At the same meeting, the club presented a $1,000 donation to Dr. Byron McKnight, as part of their ongoing sponsorship of his annual “Dentists with a Heart Day.”  The funds cover the costs of materials and supplies used in assisting area patients in need who benefit from the event.  At the most recent effort in February, McKnight’s team of dental professionals served over 50 area patients in need, providing them with life-changing care through free dental services that would normally have been worth a total of $55,000. 
The funds underwriting the cost of these donations come from the proceeds of the Mesquite Rotary Club’s annual “Rodeo Road Rally” fundraising bike ride.  The next ride is coming up at Mesquite’s Rodeo Convention Center on Saturday morning, June 1st.  For registration or more information on the event, visit
