Whether volunteering to help local businesses be successful or to help those in need, Denver Dyer seeks opportunities to serve the Tyler community whenever possible. As the community services director for The Rotary Club of Tyler, Mr. Dyer is working to organize the Tenth Annual Chili Cook-Off to be held on March 24, 2012, at First Christian Church of Tyler. The Chili Cook-Off will feature chili cooks from across the region, as well as entertainment for the family. Proceeds from the event will benefit Bethesda Health Clinic, the East Texas Literacy Council, and the Tyler Fire Department.
“Rotary is an organization of business and professional leaders united worldwide who provide humanitarian service, encourage high ethical standards in all vocations, and help build goodwill and peace in the world,” Mr. Dyer said. “In more than 160 countries worldwide, approximately 1.2 million Rotarians belong to more than 31,256 Rotary clubs. The Rotary Club of Tyler is proud to support many not-for-profit organizations in the Tyler community.”
