Welcome to Rotary Richmond, TX!


What's New In Rotary

Chief Gary Adams took over as police chief for the City of Richmond Police Department on April 6, 2015.
With over 40 years of experience in law enforcement, Chief Adams began his career in his home town of Texarkana, Texas, in 1975, working his way up through the ranks to Chief of police in 1993. After serving the City of Texarkana for twenty-five years, he left to accept the chief’s position with the City of University Park, Texas, where he served for over thirteen years, before accepting the Police Chief position in Hot Springs Village, Arkansas. 

His experience and leadership have seen various changes over the years. Hear the new movement existing in the Richmond Police Department.   

Chief Adams is a graduate of Texas A&M University.


Our speaker this week is none other than our very own Rotarian and 2014-2015 Assistant District Governor of the Year Gary Gillen.  Gary & his wife own and operate Gillen Pest Control in Richmond.
He is serving his third year as Assistant Governor for Governor Nick Giannone and assists the Fort Bend, Wharton and El Campo clubs.   Gary has also served on various governmental committees and boards appointed by former President Bush and re-appointed by President Obama.
Gary brings us Rotary’s perspective on “What does Rotary Mean to the World?"  He will highlight stories from PETS (President-Elect Training Seminars), the future of Rotary and some of the things Rotary offers us that we never think about.   
Let’s show Gary how appreciative we are for his hard work in District 5890 and Rotary Richmond, TX.  Gary epitomizes the true meaning of being a Rotarian. This is a great meeting to invite guests.
