Thanks to retired educator and author Rod Cable for recently speaking to club members about his book "Get Tough or Die: How to Raise Great Kids."

The book is about being raised in a family where excuses were not acceptable. His stories offer a lot of humor, numerous OMG moments, accounts of amazing successes, and support for parents wanting to make sure their kids can face adversity in life. Cable says the book details some of the things he and his wife did right as parents, however a longer book about what they did wrong will not be forthcoming.

Cable says he enjoyed his 47 years as a math teacher/counselor in public high schools. Teaching math was the most fun he ever had outside of family and playing college basketball. Rod believes learning must first be fun, and after that, you can teach kids almost anything. He coached four different sports and emceed more than 80 school dances. He has kept the scorebook for De Soto volleyball for the past 44 years. He went 39 years without missing a day of school and none of his three daughters ever missed a day of high school.

Christmas is one of the best times of the year! DeSoto Rotary Club members recently decorated the gazebo at Walther's Park with hundreds of beautiful, classic white lights to mark the holiday season. We're proud to support projects and initiatives that improve our community!
