This week State Representative Jay Dean gave us an update on our District. Jay Dean was elected in 2016 to serve as State Representative for House District 7, the area encompassing Gregg and Upshur Counties. For over three decades, Jay has served Longview and the broader East Texas region as a business owner, civic leader, and consistent conservative. His reputation as a budget hawk and successful job creator on the City Council led to his election as Longview Mayor. Under his leadership, Longview was noted for its responsible budgeting, low tax rates, and economic development. As a result, Longview was ranked one of the top ten U.S. cities for economic growth and earned the distinction of being named one of the "best places for business" by Forbes magazine. A lifelong conservative Republican, Representative Dean is a strong advocate for cutting the size of government, upholding the Constitution, defending religious liberty, securing the border, strengthening education, advancing the 2nd Amendment, and protecting life. Jay is a graduate of Louisiana State University and the President & CEO of Shale Flow Specialties.  Jay and his wife, Pokie, live in Longview where they raised their three girls and helped found their church, St. Matthews.

      Does perfect attendance mean never missing a meeting? It can, but doesn’t have to.  “Attendance” can be achieved by many means beyond presence at our noon Tuesday gatherings.

As we move into the second half of our Rotary year, it’s time to turn our attention to achieving membership goals set by Rotary International President Gary C.K. Huang and our own District Governor Carroll Greenwaldt. To that end, our board has approved a program that will award Foundation recognition points to Rotarians who recruit new members.

Our 75-year club history book was published in 1995. We printed 1,000 copies and began selling one to each member, but the stock ran out several years ago. We hope to issue an updated version in the centennial year of 2020, and are considering an interim second printing of the original book in the meantime.

Buenos dias! I had the privilege of going to Costa Rica with a group of students from Trinity School of Texas for almost three weeks as they attended a Spanish language immersion program. During my stay, I attended five Rotary meetings, which I will list below and attach pictures of my Flag Exchanges with each club and pictures of the flags and some of the new friends I made ...

The team of spellers from the Rotary Club of Longview won the Spelling Bee for the third year in a row.  Ric Brack, Gene McWhorter and Gordon Northcutt were the winning team who outlasted the other teams in the "Bee for Literacy" - the annual spelling bee sponsored by the Literacy Council of East Texas.  This fund raising event was held June 6 at the Pine Tree Junior High Cafeteria.  Various businesses and organizations in the community entered teams of spellers with the hope of capturing the prize of first place and the priviledger of being known as the best spellers in the community.  Congratulations to our fellow Rotarians for once again showing that the Rotary Club of Longview is for winners!
